Every neighborhood in the DC Metro Area provides a unique dining experience.

From the White House to Arlington, get your fill of what was hot in September.
1218 Wisconsin Ave NW
As one of two locations in DC, El Centro D.F.’s Georgetown location is true to Chef Richard Sandoval’s roots. The former location of Third Edition has a copious selection of more than 200 tequilas and mezcals alongside craft Mexican-inspired drinks. Book a table for their bottomless brunch ASAP.
1025 5th St NW
Busboys and Poets’ 5th street location must be doing something right! Out of Andy Shallal’s six locations for Busboys, this location in Mount Vernon Triangle, which opened its doors in 2008, is a clear favorite. The restaurant/bar is a beautiful, open space with 30-ft high ceilings and a grand central staircase that leads to a mezzanine level (the "Loft"). Give the Shrimp & Crab Fritters a try.
3165 Wilson Blvd
Who doesn’t love a giant breakfast burrito? The enormous Mexican themed buffet features many of your favorite dishes, with a full dinner menu but also brunch classics. Brunch is served starting at 10:30 AM and goes on until 3:00 PM, and the brunch buffet features carving stations, expansive fruit spreads, taco and nachos stations, salads, and ceviches. Try the Nutella pancakes if you’re feeling adventurous.
1924 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Founding Farmers in DC speaks for itself. The co-op-owned American eatery has dished out market-driven comfort food (Lobster Mac & Cheese) since 2008 and has become a staple amongst politicos, GW students, and the all-around epicurious Washingtonian.
675 15th St NW
The iconic tavern offering American meals, including its popular oyster specials, also happens to be one the highest grossing restaurants in the country. Parked right next to the White House, Old Ebbitt has welcomed more than tourists. Back in the day, it served as a boarding house that was frequented by Presidents William McKinley, Ulysses S. Grant, Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, and Warren Harding. It’s also a part of Clyde's Restaurant Group.
