5505 Colorado Ave NW at 14th Street
Noticed this new restaurant coming just across from Moreland’s on Colorado at 14th. Can’t seem to find anything online about it. Know anything? Would be great to see some more stores/shops and restaurants coming to this intersection!”
A Yelp review for Social Kitchen says:
“Fairly newly opened. Black owned. Neighborhood “Cheers” type spot with a veggie lean. They do cooking classes, pop-ups, networking and private events, etc. The smoothies are a weekend thing, for now I guess.
I had THE BEST carrot cake muffins I’ve had it years there yesterday. I kid you not. One with pecans and one with a walnut crumble.
Phenomenally executed carrot cake!! Even the cream cheese was on point. Not overly sweet with a fabulously rich cake bursting with richness. Both were fabulous. One of the owner’s mom’s recipes apparently.
I also sampled some fresh salmon with assorted dipping sauces and some cauliflower hors d’oeuvres.
I got to sample two types of smoothies too. The spinach green and the mango one…both had fresh ginger root and other goodies. Very rich. Not grainy or generic tasting like a Smoothie King or similar type spots.
Unique asset to the Brightwood/Petworth area with very personable & local ownership so I’m betting they’ll do well.”
