Restaurant Seating on the Increase in MVT

Thursday January 7, 2016

A recent study by MVT staff and the resulting graphic demonstrate the dramatic increase in restaurant/café seats in the growing Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. In 2008, a total of 425 restaurant and café seats were available in the MVT. Today, with many new restaurants and cafes attracted to the neighborhood, there are close to 3,000 seats in place and/or scheduled to deliver in new businesses in 2016. The seats include both indoor and outdoor seating, which contributes to the livelier pedestrian experience being enjoyed by our residents and visitors. New restaurants coming in 2016 include Alta Strada,  Ottoman Taverna, Devon & Blakely, Shouk, Pie 360 and RPM Italian.
