Contemporary French | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

My two dining partners were happy with their meals, but I found my snapper entree, which I had never ordered before, to be dry and tasteless. Since this is the first time I've ever been disappointed here, am assuming it was just an unfortunate day. More

Italian | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

Al Dente has good authentic Italian inspired food. Well prepared and presented. Upscale ambience, somewhere between casual and formal. Courteous and well informed staff. We went last night for an early Valentine’s Day dinner. We ordered excellent appetizer with dates, prosciutto and goat cheese, pasta bolognese and gnocchi. The service was great, the food was excellent and the dining experience was well Taylored to our needs. We have fined here several times and have had similar experiences. More

Irish | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

With enthusiastic and fun-loving new owners, it’s no wonder Kitty O’Shea’s is quickly becoming a favorite in Tenleytown! Located on Wisconsin, 2 blocks from the metro, Kitty’s has already become a neighborhood institution. Not only does Kitty’s have some of the best prices in town, they offer a great selection of beer and entertaining staff. Traditonal Irish fare, such as bangers & mash or Shepherd’s Pie, are always a favorite. Their reuben burger or house made veggie burger are also not to be missed. In the mood for a little something different? Try their Irish curry fries or an Irish benedict for brunch! Regulars agree that the food is unbeatable, especially when paired with daily drink specials, great music and comfortable atmosphere. Don’t forget trivia Tuesdays and karaoke Wednesdays! Play 60+ games on the old-school arcade table or any of their free board games. Try a root beer barrel and say “Hi” to Ruth!More

Discover Tenleytown

Dining in this D.C. area neighborhood is as diverse as the metro area itself. From quick-service Portuguese chicken restaurants to exclusive rooftop lounges, Tenleytown has something for everyone. When visiting the area, the locals will recommend the half smoke. It's a smoked sausage traditionally made from half beef and half pork. The area has one of the highest concentrations of Ethiopian expats in the country. That means another must try is the authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Traditional Ethiopian food is served family style atop a sour pancake called injera that is used to wrap the food like a tortilla. If you prefer other food styles, there is a variety of American, Asian, European and Latin American venues that range from casual and family-friendly to high-end and romantic.
