Head to Georgetown and hit the street. Then eat on it.
The Georgetown BID has worked with over 30 restaurants and DDOT to permit outdoor “Streateries” at nearly 25 locations throughout the commercial district.
We also recently built 3,400 linear feet of sidewalk deck panels on M Street between 34th Street and 29th Street, and on Wisconsin Avenue between Q Street and the Canal. The Georgetown Decks provide a more welcoming experience for outdoor Streatery dining, and create more space for pedestrians to safely and comfortably walk through Georgetown.
