The Pinch bar and restaurant at 14th and Parkwood opens patio seating

There's another option for eating and drinking outside in the neighborhood. The Pinch, the laid-back bar and restaurant at 3548 14th Street NW (at Parkwood) has just opened some patio seating, according to their Twitter.

The patio fronts on 14th Street and it looks like about 4 tables with maybe 20 seats at maximum, so it's not large. Still, a nice spot. Their Twitter account says it'll be open for brunch, and as you can see, they have some umbrellas too.

I've always liked the Pinch, it's a fun, laid-back spot with surprisingly fancy and tasty food with a lot of duck: a pulled duck breast sandwich, a burger with duck, bacon and cheddar, and a lot more. My buddy is a big fan of that burger. Brunch has normal brunchy fare plus things like a crabcake omelet, DLT (duck bacon, lettuce and tomato), plus $15 for bottomless mimosas, bloody marys and screwdrivers. Can't beat that.


  1. This is great! We live down the street and have been wanting to try The Pinch. We'll definitely check out the brunch.
    It will be interesting to see, though, how the outdoor seating will jive with the cacophony and sometimes overcrowded area in front of Pan Am grocery. There's usually tons of people, yelling, sidewalk vendors, cars pulling up and honking, etc. Doesn't make for the most chill sidewalk dining experience...

  2. Love that Bell's umbrella.

  3. The new patio is open 5pm to Midnight during the week and from 11am 'til Midnight on weekends. Eventually we're adding more tables/chairs. We're really excited to have outdoor seating for everyone. Thank you so much for all your support! The Pinch

  4. Stupid hipster gentrifiers. Always looking for a "cute" coffee shop with "wifi" or a "cozy" place for brunch. You people suck. There is no such thing as the "New" Columbia Heights. That's just some bullshit racist assumption.

  5. This is your second almost identical comment. New Columbia Heights is just a name. I wanted to call it Heights of Columbia but that was taken. Then I tried New Heights but that wasn't clearly about the neighborhood.
