H Street Communal Hotspot
Inspired by the vibrant Southeast Asian night markets, DC chef Erik-Bruner Yang (of Toki Underground fame) and DC streetwear mogul Will Sharp create a sleek, two-story indoor/outdoor space that's part menswear store, cafe, and restaurant. Glass-encased displays featuring Sharp's DC-based clothing line, Durkl, as well as designer sneakers and accessories from other brands make up the ground floor. Sip locally roasted Vigilante coffee while snacking on Frenchie's pastries and desserts in the upstairs cafe. Beyond the retail section lies the patio and open kitchen serving up Yang's blazing hot and flavorful Cambodian and Taiwanese cuisine. Don't miss out on American Wagyu Tartare, Khmer Tamarind Salad, Steamed Pork Bao Buns, and "Zha Ji Pai" (Taiwanese Fried Chicken).
