Where to eat near Arena Stage Theater
One of the most neglected restaurants in DC is also perfectly acceptable for your pre-theatre outing: Zanzibar. It is passed by in favor of some of the worst restaurants in DC, those 'seafood' houses whose relationship to the ocean is no better than Mrs. Paul's, and maybe less fresh. It is upscale African inspired fusion. I had a salad that featured duck, and also the one of shrimp, and they were both quite good. True, it's a funky place, but maybe the tastiest option around. They do lunch on Saturday and brunch on Sunday.
