American-Mediterranean Fusion Dining On
Washington DC’s H Street


A cedar tree falls into the Mediterranean, travels through the Atlantic, and finally arrives in Washington DC. This is the fundamental concept of Driftwood Kitchen, located in the heart of the bustling H Street Corridor.

With a focus on Modern American food, Driftwood Kitchen borrows from the many different flavor profiles of the culinary traditions based throughout the Mediterranean.

Reviews from the Press

  • Prince of Petworth | PoPville

    “The future – Driftwood is a modern American restaurant with Middle Eastern profiles. And those profiles are shaped by spices (over one hundred). Get ready for zatar bacon. “

  • Frozen Tropics

    “Feeling like something more conventional to drink? Order one of the 11 seasonal beers they’ll have on tap, including local drafts from DC Brau, Atlas, and Heavy Seas (I’m told that one of the “beer” taps will actually be devoted to cider). Wine drinkers will find 14 bottles by the glass, including a prosecco on tap. They will also have a small selection of wines available only by the bottle.”

  • Eater DC

    “They even hung the first dollar the restaurant earned on the wall. Driftwood Kitchen has opened its doors at 400 H St. NE, where TruOrleans used to be.”
