DeCarlo's Restaurant
DeCarlo's Restaurant
(295)
$$$$
Italian | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

You can depend on DeCarlo's for great food, reasonable prices, and a highly-attentive waitstaff. Lucy DeCarlo, the owner, must treat her employees well because I have enjoyed being served by many of the same staff over the decades that I've been a patron. Some waiters (shout out for Israel!) even know what I want before I tell them! Parking is free and easy both on the street and in an adjacent lot and garage. Ms. DeCarlo often circles through the restaurant to greet her many patrons/friends and to ensure that they are enjoying themselves and their meals. Bravo! More

$$$$
Contemporary Indian | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

This restaurant is consistently our favorite Indian restaurant in DC. The lamb vindaloo is spicy, with very high quality ingredients. The eggplant dishes are exceptional. The wine list is fairly priced and the selections pair nicely with the menu. We highly recommend this unassuming restaurant with great ambiance and exceptional service. More

Kitty O'Sheas

$$$$
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.
