Located in the NW quadrant of Washington, DC, Mount Vernon Triangle is an urban neighborhood centered around the intersection of Mass Avenue, NY Avenue, K Street and 8th Street. With its more than 40 restaurants and shops and 1.7 million sf of office space, Mount Vernon Triangle is considered a textbook example of urban planning and design. The neighborhood first came to prominence after the Civil War as a streetcar community. More recently the opening of the Walter E.

A diverse mix of restaurants and retailers range from Safeway, Vida Fitness, the iconic Busboys & Poets, and Sweetgreen.
