Food and Fun Friday: Brookland’s Finest

Summer in D.C. means lots of time for finding great food and fun (usually free!) activities. Follow our Food and Fun Friday posts to get the best recommendations from our students!

Looking for a restaurant right here in our neighborhood? Try Brookland’s Finest, it definitely lives up to its name!

Brookland’s Finest is my go-to for great food and a warm atmosphere. Located at 3126 12th Street in Northeast D.C., it’s only a short walk from Catholic’s campus.

I’ve eaten here many times with family and friends and have bee more than pleased each time with my meals and the friendly service. My personal favorite order: the grilled salmon BLT with crispy Brussels sprout chips.


As if the food isn’t enough to get you in the door, Brookland’s Finest is a great place to see friends. Catholic U. students frequent this restaurant and some even work there.


Pro tip: if the the raspberry cheesecake with raspberry cheesecake ice cream is available, order it!

Next time you’re visiting campus, stop by this awesome neighborhood spot. Check back next week to see what food and fun the Catholic U. students are finding in D.C.!
