Dining in Washington DC?
Didn’t get too much on the travel board about a week ago.

Give me some recommendations.

I’ve tentatively booked every night and one brunch, but I can obviously cancel any of this. Main goal was getting something booked with the likelihood of limited dining.

I’ve got dinners at Founding Farmers, Filomena, Joe’s Seafood Prime Steak and Stone Crab, and Old Ebbitt Grill.

We’re going to eat brunch at Founding Farmers one day also, but I don’t have anything else booked.

Would anybody change out what I’ve done? Great steaks are the goal for at least 2 nights and one night we want Italian (Filomena).

Fiola/Fiola Mare are the best restaurants in DC. Rasika should be on your list too. Minibar is supposed to be up there but can’t personally vouch. Old ebbitt is a tired old tourist trap.

How fancy are you looking to get and will you have a car?

Personally I’d skip Old Ebbitt. It’s a fancy Clydes (owned by same group IIRC). And clydes ain’t great.

Le Diplomate is really good. And all the various foods in Adam’s Morgan

~$75-100 a person without drinks. We’ll splurge on the food. My wife is pregnant and we’re going to with another couple and the husband is a recovering alcoholic.

No car as of now, but tell me what you’re thinking.

I was going to suggest a road trip to Inn at Little Washington or Three Blacksmiths. About an hour outside of DC. But they’re a little more than that, and honestly there’s so much good food in DC it’s not like you have to leave the city to eat well.

There’s a French place near DuPont circle that’s fantastic. I’ll try to find it for you.

If you’re going to go there based on its history it should be for something like oysters and then get a full meal elsewhere. le Dip was a good suggestion. I always enjoyed founding farmers but wouldn’t go out of my way to go there with better options these days.

Officina, Zaytinya, and Le Diplomate are all very good.

Central Michel Richard and you can grab a drink at the Trump Hotel across the street. Super cool bar over there.

Punjab Grill is really good as well but not quite as fancy as other places.

Zaytinya was good.

I also enjoyed a casual meal at Ted's Bulletin.

The Obama burger at Good Stuff Eatery is the best burger I’ve ever had!

You have some good spots, I would work in a Jose Andres restaurant to mix it up. Jaleo, Oyamel, Zaytina, and China Chilacano are all good. Minibar is probably way more than you want, but it’s an awesome experience.

I had a conference there several years ago. I really enjoyed pi pizza. They have a really good cornmeal crust that doesn’t feel very heavy.
