Hot new restaurants just keep on opening in Shaw, not to mention adjacent Mt. Vernon Triangle. Several buzzy dining destinations of the moment are currently located in these two nearby neighborhoods. Take a look at this month's edition of the Eater Heat Map, and more than half of the restaurants can be found in that concentrated area.
Big name chefs like Tim Ma, Eric Ziebold and Michael Schlow have all opened restaurants in the area. But besides these chef-driven spots, the neighborhoods have also gotten an injection of culinary diversity. There's also a new Turkish restaurant, a Mexican mezcaleria, vegan Middle Eastern, three pizzerias, and even a bakery.
The rest of 2016 will see several more highly-anticipated restaurants bound for the area including tasting menu-centric The Shaw Bijou, Hazel from Neighborhood Restaurant Group, pintxos-focused Anxo, Haikan from the Daikaya team, Smoked & Stacked by Marjorie Meek-Bradley, the return of The Passenger, and more.
This map lists openings from the past six months. Yet other recent Shaw additions like Kinship from Eric Ziebold, Convivial (Cedric Maupillier's Mintwood Place follow-up), The Dabney by Jeremiah Langhorne, and even Compass Coffee still remain incredibly popular.Read More
