near Farragut North


I will be spending a little time working near the Farragut North station in DC. What is there good to eat for lunch and dinner? Lunch, I'm probably going to look for more to-go friendly food. For dinner, something that is more solo diner friendly (like dining at a bar).

Usually I like to look for regional dishes (if there is such a thing in DC), then probably Thai and French in that order.

Thank you!

  1. There are many places to go if you wall up Conn. Ave a few blocks.

    Panache is good for an after work drink, and though I have never eaten there I have heard the food is also good. It is located on Desales St and has a decent amount of outside seating.

    1725 Desales St., NW, Washington, DC 20036

    1. My favorite place around the area is the juice joint. Take out, or you can sit outside at one of their tables...healthy, fresh, reasonably priced.

      But, if you want to spend money, I love Olives. It rocks. And I had expected to not think so. But nope - it's fantastic.

      1. For lunch 1 block down on 17th St. is Firehook bakery they have good to-go sandwiches and salads (and cookies) for lunch. Teaism isn't too far away and that would be good too. I don't think Penang is very far away either and that would be thai.

        1. My favorite spot by far is the Greek Deli on 19th between L and M right next to Nooshi (also popular for quick sushi). Very home cooking type feel carry-out place.

          1. re: WestEnderJMU

            I was going to recommend Greek Deli, too. It's such a (not-so-hidden) treasure.

            Lots of good dining at the bar places nearby, like Vidalia (on M), Daily Grill (on 18th and M), and Morton's (go on Mondays for free appetizers and cheap martinis).

          2. Around that area, I like the happy hour specials at McCormick & Schmick's and Cafe Asia
