“A few weeks ago you posted about the Hilltop on Sherman Avenue becoming Napoli Pasta Bar. This week, I noticed that they were open so I tried it out. I was really impressed! The owner previously worked at Café Milano and Lupo Verde and you can tell that he knows his pasta! The pasta, charcuterie and cocktails were delicious and the staff was friendly without being pushy or intrusive. I never went to the Hilltop so I don’t know how many changes were made, but the inside is beautifully decorated. There is a table made out of a Vespa scooter with a working headlight, which is pretty sweet. The waiter said that they have a happy hour discount on their beer and wine. Oh, and there is free bread and olive oil! I am a longtime resident of Sherman Avenue and I am excited (and a little surprised) to see a restaurant like this pop up on our street, so bring your friends, bring your kids and check it out!”

“I live across from Hilltop Bar and Grill and saw a few weeks ago that it’s closed for kitchen renovations. Well today I noticed they were painting on a new restaurant name! Looks like now it will be called Napoli Pasta Bar. Know any more details??”

Anyone hear more about the plans? Updates as more on the plans are known.

We pride ourselves on offering our neighbors a relaxed and fun experience with an ever-changing curated list of hard-to-find brews and classic spirits. See you at the Hilltop!”

From an email:

“The Hilltop, a neighborhood spot on Sherman and Girard, is opening for brunch this Saturday at 10:30! We’ll have lots of local goodness–Gordy’s Bloody Marys, Bullfrog Bagels, Compass coffee, and some delicious breakfast tacos too.”

“Dear PoPville,

Columbia Heights/Park View residents have been eagerly tracking the opening of The Hilltop forever and recently heard that they would be opening “June 1 at the absolute latest”.

So maybe it’s a good thing that their Facebook page is down–like part of a rebranding for when they open.

Secondly, do any readers know if business owners get a certain number of months free of rent when setting up a new restaurant? Six months? One year? Four years?”

The race to open among Hilltop, Slim’s, Swampoodle and Homestead continues…

Hilltop Opening Soon?

“This was their last update on their Facebook page:

The Hilltop Bar & Restaurant
March 13 at 6:16pm ·
We’ve had a lot of random passersby and almost as many FB messages asking when we’re really, actually going to finally open… we’re shooting for late May (June 1st at the absolute latest). See you then!

This must be the slowest opening in the history of DC bars.”
