Suggestions for Saturday lunch near National Zoo?

  • j

Need help with lunch suggestions within reasonable walk of National Zoo on a weekend, besides Lebanese Taverna. Lavandou or San Marco would have been perfect if they did a lunch business. Any suggestions?

  1. I know I cheerlead for this place a bunch, but Chef Geoff's is just up the road off Connecticut. If you head up Connecticut towards Chevy Chase and make a left on Cathedral, you will arrive at New Mexico Avenue. The delightful little restaurant is tucked next to a Sutton Place Gourmet. Great cooking, casual yet conservative atmosphere.


    1. Ditto on Chef Geoff's. They have a nice room in the back. Decent wines by the glass. The food is nice and fun. And for your crowd, its best to stick to the apps.
