In one of the most central neighborhoods in Washington close to the Verizon Center, this restaurant has an atmosphere of another era, with all wood interior with high ceilings and art deco lamps. An entire section of the restaurant consists of integrated padded tables with benches on both sides, another area is more of a sports bar with televisions and an area that looks more elegant with white tablecloths are fastened securely. We ate dinner in the section of the tables with benches where the menu had a great variety of meats and a seafood like lobster and clams. Although it may seem otherwise, the prices were reasonable, but in our case, as the wine list was complete, the bill was a bit higher with a bottle of local wine from Nappa Valley, the top U.S. wine California. The waiter ve served us was quite a character and asked us a lot of questions about our trip and joked with us. All in all, we ate very well in a good atmosphere for $ 30 per head.
The area surrounding this Japanese restaurant seems very quiet and on 17 P Street. Several terraces of bars are installed on 17th Street with a lot of young people having dinner or a drink. Sushi Taro is on the 1st floor and at 8pm at night you can see a line in the street in front of its doors. You have to overtake people waiting and go up the stairs to give your name and phone number, and depending on the number of people ve want to eat, they give you a wait time. They have different environments: a main room with conventional tables, a bar extending along the kitchen where you can see the chef cooking and preparing dishes, a seating area in the living room and finally another room, maybe for meeting groups. Apparently the place is known for being one of the few Japanese restaurants in Washington that serves good sushi. It was okay but I wouldn´t say the quality was excellent, although good. The waiters were very attentive and nice.
H Street is the main street of Chinatown in Washington where a large painted arch marks its entrance. Full Kee Restaurant can be found here. The exterior isn´t anything special but we went because it was recommended to us. Inside isn´t too extraordinary either since there aren´t any tablecloths on the tables and the lights are those bright neon ones. Most of the customers, though, are Asian which at a Chinese restaurant, is usually a good indicator of quality. It is no doubt that the food was very good but I´d recommend not ordering many dishes as the portions are very generous! We ordered about 6 or 7 dishes to share between 5 and the waiters were a bit surprised when we told them we could not take the leftovers home (as is the American custom).
One of my favorite restaurants in the USA. You can find lots of Houston Restaurants in the biggest and most important cities in the country. It's speciality is the hamburguers, but you can eat pasta, fresh fish and sushi in some places too. Beatiful girls and handsome boys will give you proper service. It's not an expensive restaurant.
Potbelly Sandwich Shop is located in a business area and sells small snacks and sandwiches perfect for a quick and affordable lunch. This branch is located in the basement of an old building and serves huge, hearty sandwiches and salads, most of which go for under $6.00. Don't miss the homemade cookies, either!
Located in the heart of a very cute and very nice little residential neighborhood, Luna Grill & Diner was one of our best discoveries during our stay in DC. It's a full American dinner with an unpretentious menu featuring burgers, delicious pastas, and desserts, all with a warm and friendly welcome and reasonable prices. We especially recommend the vegetable chili served with two side dishes (the baked sweet potato is great!). The generous serving of homemade lasagna was also delicious. Don't forget the desserts! Both the carrot cake and the apple pie are to die for!
Old Post Office Food Hall is a semi-hidden food court amid the office buildings of downtown Washington DC. It's a bit hard to find, but it's a great place for a quick, tasty lunch that won't cost you a fortune. There are several fast-food restaurants which range from Greek to Asian to delicatessen to Indian, and there's also a Ben & Jerry's for dessert. It's a nice place for a cheap meal on the go.
Union Station is the main railway station in Washington DC and is home to the Union Station Food Court, a huge hall full of fast-food restaurants You have everything from Haagen Dazs and Ben & Jerry's to McDonalds and Greek, Asian, and Indian restaurants. In short, it's fast-food but you have a bit of everything. Good place to eat if you're waiting to catch a train.
Paolo's Ristorante is a small Italian restaurant that was undeniably one of the best restaurants we tried in Washington. It's located in the heart of beautiful Georgetown, and is a small cafe decorated with taste and class. The service is exquisite and they serve wood oven pizzas that are to die for. Our chicken pizza had big chunks of real chicken, something of a rarity as far as pizzas go. For dessert, they have cheesecake, ice cream, tiramisu, chocolate cake. They also have a small selection of California wines. Dinner for two with pizza, dessert, and drinks came out to about $45.00, which is more than reasonable. We loved this place!
Martin's Tavern is one of the oldest and most famous restaurants in Washington DC and it's located in the heart of Georgetown. Popular among politicians, this warm and friendly tavern has slowly become a symbol of high-level power lunches in the nation's capital. We had an enormous corned beef sandwich with cheese, grilled bacon and mustard, which was excellent. The chocolate lava cake for dessert was to die for, as was the key lime pie. The prices are pretty reasonable: $50.00 for two mains, dessert and drinks, including tax.
For all fans of music, especially rock, Hard Rock Cafe is a mythical place. With its decoration and guitars signed by John Lennon among others, this place in Washington is very nice and very American, full of rock references through extracts of songs. On its menu, eat hamburgers and Coke in their biggest sizes. This is something normal because the portions are very big in the US. I must say that if the US doesn´t have real food, their burgers are really delicious. And, of course, the music is of good quality.
Cosi was the perfect place to take a break from our afternoon shopping spree. As the name suggests, it's a comfy and charming place where you can grab a coffee or a smoothie or even some small eats like flatbreads, salads, and sandwiches. We just got drinks but the food looked delicious.
