Tips From Our Travel Experts
Along with being a very walkable city that offers no shortage of things to see and do, no matter the weather, Washington DC is a foodie paradise! From classic comfort food and epicurean delights to creative cocktails, you could spend as much time eating and drinking here, as you could exploring the many monuments, museums and memorials.
When I go, I am always sure to make tracks to 14th Street and specifically Ted’s Bulletin, home to “all-day diner eats & shakes with a twist.” This place is cool, personified. From the smartly dressed bartenders and newspaper-style menus, to the homemade pop tarts and “adult” milkshakes, I always leave this place feeling like I am about to burst but utterly satisfied and already thinking about my next visit.
I also like to hit 7th Street and a great little trifecta of restaurants/bars that combined make for a perfect night out. Start off at Mockingbird Hill to sip some sherry and eat the on-site cured hams and cheeses. After that head two doors over for dinner at Eat the Rich, an oyster bar with a Chesapeake Bay-centric menu; before wrapping up your night in the cozy but cool ambiance of Southern Efficiency, a cocktail bar that specializes in bourbon, but also offers a selection of craft beer.
For drinks with a view, definitely check out POV bar on the rooftop of the W Washington DC hotel. Unique cocktails and unparalleled views of the White House make this a place you shouldn’t miss!
Oh and do not leave the city until you’ve experienced Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street. A DC landmark, this place is best known for their chili half-smokes – a smoked sausage topped with chili con carne. Comfort food at its finest!
I could go on and on about the restaurant and bar scene here – definitely something to experience for yourself!
