Truly driven by building a better food system, close friends Suzanne Simon and Bettina Stern founded Chaia to share the beautiful, flavorful food they love to cook for their family and friends with the larger community. Inspired by their work as food writers and educators, their love of Mexican cooking and their roots - Bettina grew up in New York City and Suzanne hails from the Midwest - Chaia's "farm to taco" is a unique relationship between farmers and urban street-style food. First in the kitchen, then at the farmers market and very soon a brick-and-mortar shop in Georgetown, Chaia offers seasonal, plant-based tacos, sides and natural drinks in a stylish, casual setting. We are dedicated to:

good food

serving delicious, handmade food + drinks
with great attention to detail


celebrating vegetables at their very best

local farms

partnering with the farmers that grow our food


offering a plant-focused menu for
our health + the environment


welcoming you into our shop with gratitude

-Washington Post, naming Chaia one of DC's Top 9 Tastemakers

Bill Yosses, former executive pastry chef at the White House, is said to have developed quite the obsession with these tacos."
