Contemporary French | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

The vegetarian platter featured on the Mother’s Day brunch menu was very disappointing. Just steamed veggies—no herbs or other seasoning. Matisse chefs need to put more effort and imagination into the vegan and vegetarian options—especially these days when there are more people choosing this lifestyle. More

Italian | Tenleytown, District of Columbia

We were celebrating a college graduation and needed somewhere with good food, good service, and not too loud to have conversations. Our table of 10 was put in a side room which fit the bill perfectly. We enjoy DeCarlo's fairly often and they maintained the same level of cuisine and service which we expect. Thank you. 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.
