On October 18, CentroNía hosted the first ¡Buen Provecho! A Taste of Columbia Heights, where nearly 200 friends enjoyed a three-hour self-guided tasting tour of Columbia Heights restaurants. It was an incredible evening of fun, delicious food, exploring and tasting! In partnership with District Bridges, CentroNía brought together 13 restaurants and businesses along 14th Street, Irving Street, Park Road, and the 11th Street corridor in Columbia Heights to showcase delicious food and drinks.

Thanks to the support of sponsors, partners, and participants, CentroNía raised critical funds in support of CentroNía’s high-quality, affordable early childhood education programs and support services for low-income, working families.

We were excited to see so many new faces joining us to celebrate Columbia Heights vibrant culture. For CentroNía’s Columbia Heights will always be our first home and we couldn’t more grateful to our neighbor restaurants for participating in this event.” said Myrna Peralta.

Restaurants included: &pizza, The Coupe, El Tío Tex-Mex Grill, The Good Silver, Letena Ethiopian Restaurant, Los Hermanos, Lou’s City Bar, NíaCentral Catering, Willow, Odd Provisions, RedRocks Columbia Heights, Tynan Coffee & Tea, and The Wonderland Ballroom where we celebrated the success of the evening with a VIP After Party featuring local talent Monadisa and the Mad Hatters.
