    Very delicious and healthy for quick pre-prepared food. I think the combination plate I had cost about US$9.00 with drink. Chicken with various vegetables, rice and watercress salad. Located on the lower level.

  • Blackies

    5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Wow, what a great meal. Perfect in every way. My compliments to Executive Chef Claude Rodier, Wonderful! I really have no complaints about Blackies. It is top shelf, so sticker shock might be a factor. I used an internet site to book Blackies, called Open Table. It was really easy, and convienient. I was afraid they might treat us differently due...

  • Capitol City Brewing Company

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Looking for a good brewpub, with its own distinctive lagers, ales, pilseners, porters, and stouts? This is the place. It's a Washington landmark, with excellent food to accompany the beers. It's all good.

  • Old Post Office Pavillon

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    The Post Office Pavilion should be a stop just to check out its architecture but with a fair food court which features some of the more economical downtown eating near The National Mall, it's worth eating here too. Indian Delight was a handy place in the Post Office Pavilion that provided pretty decent authentic Indian food at a fair price. They...

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    I have been very fortunate to have traveled to places where there just so happens to be an HRC in town! I collect the pins and I place them on a pillow that sits on my bed. I'm not one to collect trinkets and "dust collecting" items so this is a nice way to show where I have been. By the way, if you want to eat at HRC, the food is usually pretty...

    5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    This has got to be my favorite restaurant in DC. Everything about it is great! If you like good southern cooking in a nice atmosphere, then this is the place for you. It is perfect to get a cocktail after hard day of touring the city or getting a table for a romantic dinner. It may be a little pricey, but it is well worth it. My favorite dish has...

  • Bistro du Coin

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Bistro du Coin is consistently a restaurant voted on nearly every Washingtonian's top list. This is not haute cuisine but the true bistro style French. In the evenings, particularly weekends, this place is a very popular place. They have a variety of tables for singles, couples, and groups, as well as a bar. The atmosphere is always jovial, with...

  • Ben's Chili Bowl

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Ben's Chili Bowl is a U Street institution. It was established in 1958 and was one of the few businesses to survive the race riots of the 1960s that destroyed much of the neighborhood. This small diner-like restaurant has been a favorite of people such as Bill Cosby, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, and even Dr. King. While the original owners have...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    This is one of several Clyde's Restaurants in the DC area although this one is the original. Each is individually managed. The menus may differ. The 1976 song "Afternoon Delight" was inspired by Clyde's late afternoon appetizer menu.

    Although not in Washington DC., This was a memorable restaurant. Servers dress in period clothing. The food was great and very well worth the money! Try the Sunday brunch! One of the best Sunday brunches we have EVER had! Sally Lunn Rum Laced French toast. (Sunday Brunch) French toast with bananas, blueberries and melted brie along with rum....

    Very busy restaurant... A lot of the food was "picked over". The restaurant could not keep up with the demands for crab legs. This restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel concierge. Crab legs

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Jose Andres has a number of fantastic eateries in DC. You may have even seen him as a competitor on Iron Chef. Going here for that reason is silly since the food is so wonderful! I imagine this is what it is like to be in a tapas bar in Spain. Noisy, crowded full of life. It's dark and simple. The food exceeds all expectations. It too is simple and...

    After a visit to the zoo one morning, we were looking for lunch before heading back to work (tough life we live, huh?). We planned to try the Afghan Grill on the corner of Calvert and Connecticut, but they were not open at 11:30 despite their sign stating their opening time was 11:00 daily; the lone guy sweeping the floor said he had no idea when...

    While exploring all day on my second visit. I thought it was time to treat my sister to a nice dinner. We stopped it here after exploring all day. What a wonderful place. It was during summer my second visit, so the nice cool air in here was welcoming. We loved the decor of this place and we were so happy to find a very comfortable place to sit and...

    This modern chic & trendy restaurant provides top notch service, offers a wonderful array of Southeast Asian-inspired dishes and has a warm/classy ambiance. I definitely will be back here again. Try this restaurant if you have never been here before. You will not be disappointed. I had the melt-in-the-mouth good Chilean Sea Bass! I realize they're...

  • Kelly's Irish Times

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    This is one of two adjoining 'Irish' pubs just round the corner from my hotel. There wasn't a huge amount of eating choices in the immediate area (apart from the 'food court' within Union station) so I ended up eating here twice. I'd have tried the 'Dubliner' next door, which did look a nicer place, but it was heaving every time I walked past (I...

    My mother ha been bringing me back tea from here for many years now. If you love tea (or even if you don't!) This place is so fulfilling. The breakfast foods are unique, but simple enough to be tasty. Lunch is nice as well, but I didn't personally experience it. I had the cilantro scrambled eggs and tea smoked salmon at the Dupont Circle local. I...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    This place is a fun place to have dinner and a few drinks. The food is decent, you definitely get a lot, but the outdoor seating is why we go in the summer. Also, we went on Cinco De Mayo which was a good choice... The only problem with this place is that it gets very crowded, so you have to be very patient if you want the outdoor seating. We tend...

    5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    If you like tapas than this is the place to go in the D.C. area. The food has so many flavors that at times it can be overwhelming. The atmosphere is fun and they have Flamenco or Spanish guitar music nights. The service is always excellent and the people very friendly. It is located in Old Town, Alexandria so if you are visiting this is a nice...

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Au Pied de Cochon is also a full service bar which serves until 3 in the morning. Additionally, even after the bar is closed, they keep the kitchen open until they close down the whole place. It's a bit ritzier than Waffle House, but then again, they're French! I actually ate there last night. We had a lot of the appetizers as well as some food. As...

    This has been my favorite bookstore and cafe since I first moved to Washington years ago. I have been to no other bookstore anywhere that I like as much. The Afterwards part is a nice place to have lunch before or after checking out the books. Whenever I am in Washington I try to make a trip to this place either to just browse books or to have...

    Busy/loud lunch trade. Have been three times now, and now I know not to go back. Way too salty. I think they use MSG, too, as my face seems to always get flushed afterwards. Service has been hurried and curt. Today, waitress was obviously ill and coughed several times over our food. Have not found anything other than frozen/fried food decent. Hate...

    This is an incredibly overrated restaurant. Granted, the food is excellent, but the service is some of the worst in the city. At one visit, two waiters actually had an argument in front of us -- and no one apologized until I called the manager over. Roberto Donna is one of the best chefs in the city, but unless you're royalty, his staff will treat...

    Logan Circle and the 14th Street corridor are emerging as DC's must visit neighborhood and Rice, a modern Thai restaurant, is just proof that this neighborhood's upswing is picking up speed.

    Amazingly good food, incredible serving size.... you may have one of the best italian in horse-like servings... I don't think that anybody without an eating disorder can finish just one plate. Usually, people will just get the rest "to go". So you would have a chance to enjoy it again later at home. Of course the taste is not the same, but surely...

  • American 50's Diner, Open Real Late

    First, let me apologize that this place is actually in Arlington and not DC. But when you are hungry, sometimes location doesn't matter. Particularly if it is late and you don't want corner store meals or bar food, there are not a lot of options. Silver Diner to the rescue. It is an honest 50's diner, complete with neon lights and decore from the...

    Inexpensive and delicious hot sandwiches. All sorts of combinations on two types of bread. Don't let the lines keep you from eating here - it goes fast. Bottled drinks in the fridge and grab the chips in cubby holes on the wall you walk along to get your sandwich. We saw several of these sandwich places throughout DC. The one we went to even had...

    Good thing I made reservations! The place was packed. We got right in without waiting. The menu is filled with comfort foods. The quality of the food was good but not great.
