Dining Out – DC Style


Summer is a great time to visit Washington DC and this summer is a great time for anyone who enjoys eating out. There are so many great places to eat in Washington DC – I’ve heard chefs say that we have more kinds of restaurants than anywhere else.

Here are a few suggestions including some that are worth making a special trip while the regulars are away and it’s easier to get a table:

Metro Food Tours offers neighborhood tours through Georgetown, Capitol Hill, Old Town Alexandria, U Street, Eastern Market, Dupont Circle, plus an option you won’t find anywhere else – Little Ethiopia. Washington DC has the largest Ethiopian population outside of Ethiopia and offers some of the best Ethiopian food available plus traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremonies.

If you’ve heard about or visited Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack in New York City, we have now 2 locations in Washington DC – one in Dupont Circle, right on Connecticut Avenue, and one in Nationals Ball Park, so you can grab a burger and a shake while you enjoy a ball game.

Fans of Bravo’s Top Chef can find Spike Mendelsohn at his Good Stuff Eatery or his new We, the Pizza.

Fodor’s offers a great list of some that includes many of our favorite restaurants including Westend Bistro by Eric Ripert, Rasika by the Verizon Center, and Marvin in U Street – owned by one of the members of Thievery Corporation.  Washington Post Food Critic Tom Sietsema offers his Dining Guide to steer you in the right direction by price, location, cuisine and rating.

And no list would be complete without our own 14K Restaurant – enjoy some of Chef Spencer Wolff’s specialties or just unwind with a cocktail on the patio after a day of sightseeing.  And of course, there’s no better place to start your day than with our breakfast buffet or just stop by our in-house Starbucks and grab your coffee to go.

Check our specials and make your reservations now – we’re saving a table for you.
