D.C.’s 38 Essential Restaurants from Eater
Food, like music and movies, can become a nerdy obsession, and as with every nerdy obsession, lists are very important. National food site Eater, with their finger ever on the pulse of taste, just yesterday updated their 38 Essential Washington Restaurants. The carefully curated list is a standing compilation of D.C. restaurants that covers, excellently and reasonably, the spectrum of your urban food needs. The list gets refreshed every couple of months with new faces or reinvented old standbys. Check out some of the highlights below!
DGS Delicatessen prepares old sandwich shop favorites like corned beef, Reubens and pastrami with flair and sophistication. An Adam’s Morgan staple, Cashion’s Eat Place specializes in seafood dishes with Mediterranean preparation and is known for an expansive wine list.
The Mediterranean hotspot has just released a new summer cocktail menu designed by ThinkFoodGroup’s cocktail innovator Juan Coronado. Priced between $8 and $15 each, cocktails include the Zaytinya Martini — olive oil infused vodka, blanc vermouth and maraschino liqueur — and the Greek Gin and Tonic — gin, black tonic, kaffir lime leaf, barberries and licorice stick. Beating the heat is always best done with a buzz.
Hope this preview helps expand your restaurant resume. Be sure to check out the complete list for more food for thought!
