What you can expect

Step into a neighborhood rich with local DC history. Away from the monuments and the memorials, U Street is not Washington, but the REAL DC.

Discover DC's diverse culinary roots and history while we stroll and chat about the heyday of “Black Broadway” and the role this area played in during the Jazz Era. You’ll be surprised to learn how many household names had their start in the little clubs along this corridor.

Sample quintessential DC flavors while we reveal stories behind tucked away murals, sculptures, and the artists who created them. Learn about the Civil Rights riots that shaped the city and changed its landscape for years to come. Explore the architecture and evolution of this neighborhood as it continues to change today.

We will taste a variety of cuisines whose flavor contribute directly to the stories and the history of this authentically DC neighborhood. U Street is an essential spot in DC and is not to be missed!
