I found the service and atmosphere to be fabulous. Vegetate has a good drink menu and great atmosphere for dates. It's urban-chic in a neighborhood that needs some business. The food was also good, though perhaps not worth the high prices (which range from $10-17 per dish). The grilled seitan was a bit chewy, but tasty on a whole. I thought their desserts were distinctive and understated, with unusual tastes (chocolate ganache with balsamic vinegar) that you don't expect.

The food was good, but I think it's WAY overpriced and you get too small of servings. I had some dumplings, which were listed as a brunch item, but were actually a (really small) appetizer, for like $9. I also had some mini jerk veggie burgers, which were really good, but very small.

Howard University/Shaw


Located directly in between two metro stops. North of it is the Shaw/Howard stop on the green line; from there walk one block west to 9th street, then three blocks south to 1414. South of it is the Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center stop on the yellow or green line; from there walk west to 9th street through the Convention Center underpass, then three blocks north to 1414. You can also use the new DC Circulator bus, which stops across the street at 9th and O.
