Reviews from the Press

  • Prince of Petwor

    “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.”
