Address: 400 H St. NE

You thought H Street was safe, eh? Not a chance. The area is rapidly changing, with new restaurants and bars appearing overnight; TruOrleans was supposed to be another hit. Sorry. Not a chance. The building looks nice and the layout is cool, but the food is disappointingly bad, as is the overall attitude of the staff. No wonder this place is so far from all the acceptable places on H Street; it's literally miles away in quality.
