  • Georgia Brown’s

    4.5 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...

  • 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...

  • Hardrock Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Love the Hard Rock - I've been collecting the pins for 25 years. This is a nice one - two stories, lots of memorablia. I love the ambiance - music videos playing on multiple screens (and not too loudly for a change). I was alone, so sat at one of the pub tables in the bar. My waiter, Chris, was very friendly and attentive. He laughed when I asked...

  • 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.

  • Jaleo's

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Clyde's

    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.

    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

    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...

    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...

  • Teaism

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    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...

    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!

    4 out of 5 stars

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    It was said to be Irish, but it looked quite American in our eyes. Of course some Irish things as decorations and Guinness served. But it didn´t matter, we just choosed it because of the location and they had some food. The other option would have been to eat at railwaystation, witch we didn´t want to do. (Or at another "Irish" place next to this,...

    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...

  • Cactus Cantina

    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...

  • Starbucks

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    Come on, it's Starbucks... this particular Starbucks was unique because it was in this hut-like thing. Ok, so anyway, by now maybe you've figured that I'm a Starbucks-freak! everything -- you have to try the chocolate-covered espresso beans if you've never had them

  • Au Pied de Cochon

    5 out of 5 stars

    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...

    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...

    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...

    A wonderful Italian trattoria with plenty of windows as well as an outdoor terrace in warmer weather so you can watch the world go by on Connecticut Ave. We've eatten here several times and I've never had a bad meal. There are various areas in the restaurant -- but again I've enjoyed upstairs [where the waiter actually sold me the shirt off his...

    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...

    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...

  • Maggiano's Little Italy

    Washington D.C. Restaurants

    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...

    Irish, ok. Pub? Got it. In DC: fine. But what's with the Elephant? I mean, Irish Setter... something I'm missing, obviously. Regardless, this is a neat place. While E&C doesn't have the dimmer, lived-in feel of a favorite neighborhood pub, it has TVs for the games, a great selection of drinks and good food. So who cares about the name! It was cold...

    Ambience is about par for a genuine Chinese restaurant. That is, it feels like a real Chinese restaurant in China, which is a good thing! Service is fast, though a bit curt at times? I only went once so I can't vouch for other days or other staff. If you're in Chinatown, it's good for a quick bite- there are other places to eat too! There is quite...

They have much more than breakfast, a great...
