701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
A couple weeks ago we learned a Chop’t was coming to the Navy Memorial Plaza next to the Paul bakery. More food options are coming to the plaza. Native Foods Café is coming to the vacant space next to 701 Restaurant.
According a liquor license application:
“Restaurant serving vegan food with a seating capacity for 66 and total occupancy load of 98. Side Café with 40 seats.”
Hours will be 10:30 am – 11 pm Monday-Sunday.
According to their website:
“Native Foods Café is the premier chef-crafted vegan restaurant serving homemade, fresh food every day of the week. Native Foods Cafe has attracted acclaim in Zagat, USA Today, VegNews and numerous other publications.”
You can see their Menus here.

And for those who remember the space that used to have the good pizza on the other side of the plaza – It’s going to be a Plan B Burger Bar. Washington Business Journal reported:
“The burger-centric restaurant and bar has signed a lease for retail space at 801 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. It will be the group’s first restaurant outside of New England.”
Updates as both spots get closer to opening.

I was wondering if I could submit a question to your readers. I have a friend visiting in mid-July who was asking me for vegetarian or veggie-friendly restaurant recommendations. I’m not a vegetarian so not always on the lookout for places with good veggie options. What do your readers recommend as far as restaurants with lots of vegetarian choices?”
If you know of places with good vegetarian options please also say what neighborhood it is in. Thanks.
Here were the recommendations for best expensive, BBQ, tapas, bar to watch football, wine bar, Chinese, Latino/Mexican, hidden restaurants, Italian, Sushi, Indian, falafel, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern and Steak.
