I was delighted with my goat cheese salad and scallops on sunflower seed ‘risotto’. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet but I understand they are busier when events are at the Kennedy center. I will return when I’m back in DC. More

We walked there from the Hampton as Ted at the front desk suggested this restaurant. It was a great walk and a really great place to have a romantic 45th anniversary dinner! We are from Illinois so can’t visit often but the memories will always be there. Our waitress was charming and so friendly to talk to! More

Discover Foggy Bottom

This historic district's food scene is just as worthy of investigation as its reputation for the arts is. If you're not too busy taking in some culture at the Kennedy Center or checking out the Watergate complex, you should definitely check out some of the Mediterranean counter service restaurants and classic pad Thai spots. If you're around when the weather is nice, you might even prefer to grab something to go and hang out by the waterfront while you nosh. As you might expect from an area so steeped in history, there are plenty of comfort food locations that provide hearty American, Italian and Spanish fare. Many even offer farm-to-table options, classic tavern brews, and upscale dining settings that stand in refreshing contrast to the nearby National Mall and crowded memorial scene.
