Inside the Ohio Restaurant
Located in the 1300 block of H Street, the Ohio offers southern food & burgers. There's a feeling inside of being some place far removed from the commercial strip of the H Street Corridor (despite the view of the street through the open door). It seems more like a place you might find while on a roadtrip somewhere.
Around three o'clock a table of three women in their twenties sat talking off to the side. As they left the woman on the end came in to relax with a Heinekin & the man sitting by the register ordered the pig's foot platter. I had a cheeseburger & sweet tea.
A picture of Martin Luther King Jr. guards the entrance to the kitchen.
Old photos adorn the wall above the Ohio's modest bar.
The old phone booth visible on the right no longer affords patrons privacy when making phone calls, but it does remind you exactly how long the the business has been around.
The chef discusses his hopes for the future at the Ohio.
