Spanish | Penn Quarter, District of Columbia

Food is mostly great here - and plentiful. Service, while not slow taking orders or bringing out food, tends to trail off so it’s hard to get out of there in under 1 hour. More

Gustavo was the absolute best! I had been to Boqueria before but he took the time to explain every dish in detail and was very conscience of my allergy. And kept the mimosas coming! More

Tico has some great appetizers and desserts, there could be more options for large plates. There werren't a lot of "wow" dishes on the menu but it's a great place to go in a group and share some small plates. We had a good time, though I wish they would make their margaritas from scratch instead of using the premade mixer. More

The food and service was fabulous and unique. A couple had surprising spiciness, which would have been better to note on the menu, but it was otherwise great. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Wine pairings were a treat and went well with the courses. More

Discover District of Columbia

The District of Columbia is a place where eating out can be an adventure. Caribbean, Italian, and Pakistani cuisine can be found in the area. You can also dine on classic American fare, seafood, and barbecue. Try the Jamaican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin or the steak churrasco for a taste of the Caribbean. If you plan to eat Italian cuisine, sample the gamberi, cannelloni, or the pollo parmigiano. The District of Columbia’s Pakistani fare is traditional with dishes like Punjabi boti chicken tikka, goat dum biryani, or the butter chicken. For breakfast, you might like steel cut oats, organic cottage cheese and fresh fruit, or French toast and beef hash. This is a destination where the food is almost as good as the sights.
