Petworth / Park View

Distinctive urban row houses, pastoral parks, historic institutions and growing businesses front Georgia Avenue, the longest commercial corridor in DC.

Petworth and Park View are emerging as vital urban neighborhoods that provide all of the advantages of city living.

Upshur Street – Boutique Retail + Dining

In the past three years numerous new businesses have opened including Slim’s Diner, Himitsu (Japanese-inspired restaurant), Ruta del Vino (Latin American wine bar and restaurant), Slash Run (American restaurant), Timber Pizza, and Hank’s Cocktail Bar, and Taqueria del Barrio (Mexican restaurant) and Lulabelle’s Sweet Shop.

Great Streets Retail Small Business Grants

Georgia Avenue is a designated Great Streets corridor. As funds become available small businesses can apply for grants to cover capital improvements and certain soft costs. In 2017, up to $50,000 was awarded per location.

Burgeoning Restaurant Scene

Popular new eateries and bars continue to supplement neighborhood favorites. Himitsu (featured in the Michelin Guide) and Timber Pizza (Pizzeria of the Year by Bon Appétit in 2017) have joined Esencias Panamenas (City Paper’s 2017 DC Best Latin American Restaurant) and The Midlands (neighborhood beer garden).
