Washington, D.C., has become an authentic foodie destination in the past decade. The nation’s capital is now famous for its delicious offering through its innovative, unique restaurants. While it’s impossible to choose the best restaurants of all, too many contenders to make for a crowded field the ones feature here all deserve to be considered among the finest out there.
Ben’s Chili Bowl
Ben’s Chili Bowl has been the heart and soul of U-street ( a residential and commercial district in Northwest Washington including many shops, restaurants, night clubs, etc.) since 1958. They’ve been visited by many notable personalities, too, including then-president-elect Barack Obama. Ben’s has a huge menu, displayed over the dinner-like open kitchen behind the counter. Just the breakfast section is frighten ranging from scrapple to salmon cakes, along with more typical hot cakes, French toast, and egg sandwiches. Lunch and dinner offer an equally large collection of burgers, dogs, and all things grilled. If you are a vegetarian, you can go for the alternatives to the burgers. Ben’s is fabulous for its half-smokes, especially when topped with chili.
The Red Hen
Whenever you are confused in selecting the restaurants in Washington, ask your driver where he drops the most of the people, and you will surely hear ‘The Red Hen Restaurant.’ This well-traveled route is incomplete because there’s no immediate Metro stop in Bloomingdale( it is an American chain of luxury department stores). Enjoy the delicious taste of the famous cuisines including Butter Glazed Vegetable Risotto, Steak & Potatoes, Winter Squash Agnolotti and much more.
Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and latest Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive collection of tapas, the traditional dishes of Spain, as well as superb sangrias savory paellas, and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere. Some dishes from the menu are still available today, like the tortilla Española and gambas al ajillo.
Old Ebbitt Grill
Old Ebbitt Grill is one of DC’s oldest spots. It should also be credited with igniting our addiction to saline bivalves, breeding countless oyster hours throughout the city. This dining restaurant near the White House throws one of the best parties in Washington DC, Oyster Riot, which goes down in November every year.
Here you will find the delicious menu for daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night dining. Enjoy the Saturday and Sunday Brunch together and enjoy your weekends. Casual dining with service to locals and visitors alike.
