Lunch/dinner in Georgetown?

Hello!! Would love to get good eats, both inexpensive and moderate prices (not to exceed $40 per person) in Georgetown for lunch and dinner... Love almost all cuisines!! Thank you!

  1. Well, at the high end, you have Michel Richard's Citronelle, but that will hurt your budget. I've always liked 1789 -- I am friends with the fellow who sold it to Clyde's, and as far as I know, Clyde's hasn't ruined it. I haven't been to Hook yet, but I've heard the raves about this seafood eatery. Billy Martin's Tavern is an age-old Georgetown institution and you'll get great crabcakes there. Just a bit north of Georgetown is 2 Amys, and there are quite a few devotees on this Board.

      Thank you for the suggestions everyone! Keep 'em coming :)

    2. Tombs is a great lunch spot in Georgetown. It is a favorite of Georgetown students, but there are plenty of non students there, and the food is excellent and relatively inexpensive. It doesn't seem too touristy either.

        Love university towns... where there are hungry college students there are many inexpensive good eats. Love the wonderful diversity of cuisines to be found, too!!

          F. Scott's, The Tombs and 1789 are the three restaurants my friend sold to Clyde's almost 20 years ago, and all three are still going strong.

        2. Miss Saigon - Vietnamese. apps ~ $5. Main courses ~ $12. Yummy.

          1. Zed's Ethiopian - sensational and moderately priced.

            1. Pizza Paradiso for good pizza.
