Great food...I need your recommendations!
I'll be visiting D.C. on an upcoming weekend and I want to eat great stuff when I'm there. I'm staying at the hostel on the corner of 11th St. NW and K St. NW and I'm not that familiar with the area. I'm looking for places that aren't too expensive, but I'm willing to splurge on something spectacular. I'll venture to surrounding neighborhoods, as long at they're Metro-accessible. I'm especially interested in great bakeries -- European-style breads and pastries -- but I'm lookg for recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner! And good hole-in-the-wall bars too...
I know it's a tall order, but where do you usually take friends who are visiting from out of town?
I'll be in town for two nights (Friday and Saturday, leaving Sunday afternoon). I went to a good sushi place in Dupont Circle last year...though I don't recall the name now. I've also read some good things about Pesce on this board so I'll check that out. I'm still looking for bakery and bar suggestions....I'll take bourdeauxfan's advice and search some more. But I'd still welcome some advice from you D.C.ers!
