Columbia Pike Recipes for Recovery

Restaurant Stories from Around The World in One Zip Code

Along Columbia Pike, recovery can be found in berbere spice and Rooibos tea and chile paste, each ingredient forming part of a unique recipe and story.

Columbia Pike Recipes for Recovery shares stories of how food connected a community during a time when they needed it most. This passion and patronage kept Columbia Pike restaurant owners in business and continues to forge a path towards individual and collective recovery.

Arlington artist Sushmita Mazumdar has gathered a few stories here for you to experience, all from one zip code. The stories might be different from the ones you share around your dinner table. We invite you to savor Columbia Pike Recipes for Recovery through the eyes, ears, and mouths of those who call the Pike home.
