There’s a certain grit to the H Street corridor, within Northeast Washington, that’s comforting and charming. It was once a commercial area for the city’s working class, and many of the buildings were destroyed during the 1968 race riots. Fast-forward a few decades, and it’s where old D.C. meets new. Old bodegas stand next to new coffee shops. Native Washingtonians order pancakes from Tony’s, while transplants enjoy a chocolate croissant from Maketto.
