Just when it seems like northern Columbia Heights was getting some more development, southern Columbia Heights gets into the act too. Creme Restaurant and Bar, a casual fine dining place known for their brunch, is opening July 1st at 2438 14th St NW. That's the Capitol View apartment building.
They used to be on U Street near 13th but closed when the building went under renovation. The spot got a lot of good reviews for brunch items like chicken and waffles, and I'm glad to see another restaurant coming to that area -- especially for brunch, since most brunch spots are around 11th and 14th and Park. It seems like that part of the hood is heating up too with spots like Kapnos and the sandwich shop G by Mike Isabella opening last year. There's also Streets Market, which I have been meaning to check out.
This is also good, as it seemed like the retail spots in a lot of those new buildings were taking a while to fill up. Glad to see some progress.
