More options for the neighborhood

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

2016 has generally been a good year for restaurants in Petworth. Though the losses of Crane & Turtle and Domku were blows, several new options have debuted in the Northwest D.C. neighborhood, many of which just happened in the past month or so. Here are five to put on the radar:
