    Wildfire: Good place for a business lunch

    by Ingeborga Written Oct 11, 2009

    The restaurant is located inside the mall, but don't be encouraged by that. A nice, cozy atmosphere, a fireplace, very friendly staff - will make your clients feel right at home and at ease when talking business. Located conveniently in Tysons Corner and close to major consulting firms: SAIC, Deloitte, PwC, etc.

    Favorite Dish: Steaks, steaks, steaks.

  • Native Indian Restaurant: Since you are there why not?

    by Wellanna Updated Jul 6, 2008

    Every Smithsonian museum has a restaurant. They are a bit expensive but since you are there why not try it? Ours had a cuisine of North and South America. I have to say that the service was one of the slowest and most rude ever seen. If there is a crowd you will have to wait a lot. The food is good and servings are really large.

    What makes it so special? A silly question when this cafe is concerned. I entered three of them in the US and they are all exactly the same. Of course everyone knows it is much more then just the food. There are many guitars and posters of famous rock stars on the walls. The food is good too.

    Cafe Atlantico: Asian Tapas bar

    by Ingeborga Written Jul 17, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best appetizer is the guacamole, which is prepared table-side. Although the guacamole is served with tortillas, ask for the crispy chips from the bar. The playful menu blends South American flavors and utilizes interesting textures and presentation. A recent dish of shrimp with pumpkin seeds featured a puff of lime "air," a frothy flavorful accompaniment to the hearty starter. Fukushima excels with seafood dishes. Salmon and scallops are generally well-prepared. Weekend brunch offers Latino dim sum and a fixed pre-theater menu is available every night from 5-6:30 p.m.

    Favorite Dish: Do try their gazpacho and THE DUCK! It's to die for!

    The restaurant also offers a good list of wines from South America.

    Las Tapas: Traditional Spanish Food

    by Ingeborga Written Jul 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is perfect for those who enjoy Spanish culture, especially flamenco dancing. The band plays there almost every day and you can get a table close to the bad. The dance floor, however, is rather small, so you will only see 5-6 couples maximum dancing.

    Favorite Dish: tapas rule and the menu features more than 70 varieties. Ideal for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike, these tasty little plates are made for a lazy lunch, a bottle of wine and plenty of the restaurant's truly excellent homemade bread. It is also perfect for those who eat kosher food, as it you can skip the ham and go straight for the cheese:)

    My favorite hot dishes are seafood paella and grilled calamari in tomato and garlic. The portions are perfect for one person, so make sure you order several dishes to share.

    Miss Saigon: The best shrimp in town

    by Ingeborga Written Jul 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best Vietnamese Cuisine in town! Very cozy restaurant, right in the heart of noisy and never-falling-asleep Georgetown. The waiters are very polite and know exactly what each meal is made off; they will go in great length to discuss the ingredients with you, if you dare to ask them:) I always bring my out-of-state guests there and no one has ever said that didn't love the food (even those who don't typically eat Asian food)

    Favorite Dish: First of all, definitely spring rolls: they are perfect shape and taste. Next, the egg-noodle soup is just what you need if you are cold or simply ravenous.
    For the entree, I strongly suggest Caramel Shrimp with lemongrass and chilli, served in a rustic clay pot. Not to be cliche, BUT IT IS TO DIE FOR!!!

    Zaytinya: Swanky Mid-Eastern/Mediterranean Mezze in DC....

    by jetsetterforever Written May 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Entrance of Zaytinya

    Very nice mezze style restaurant in the Gallery Place/China Town quarter of DC. Mezze are small-plate foods primarily from the Eastern Mediterranean, drawing off of Greek, Turkish, and Lebanese flavors.

    Portions here are small and it is typical to order a few items off the menu. Hence, if you want to fill up, it is recommended that you go to this place with a group of people and to share the food around.

    Favorite Dish: Try the spiced rubbed sirloin of beef and the kibbeh nayeh. For dessert, try the namoura (semolina cake with apricot sorbet and carmelized almonds).

    Then, finish it all off with the nice cup of Turkish Coffee.

    La Tasca: Spanish Tapas in DC

    by jetsetterforever Updated May 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside La Tasca

    Fairly nice tapas bar in the heart of Penn Quarter. Has a relaxed ambiance and a good happy hour. They also have a lot of special deals here on every day of the week (eg. 50% discount on Sangrias - Thursday, 25% discount on Paellas - Tuesday). Fairly large selection of sangrias.

    Favorite Dish: All of the paella's are pretty good. They have a desert here called "Tarta de Crema Catalana" which is fabulous.

    The Diner: Late night spot (24 hours)

    by snopea41 Updated Aug 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Regular diner food. Really good grilled chicken sandwich, and florentine omelett. You will always see locals, entertainment industry people and random eccentric type...definately worth it after a long night of drinking.

    There are many things to do here, so, quickie yummies aren't bad. Inside the National Air and Space museum, you'll find these eateries like Mac and co.
