Dinner on a Budget
Recently, a friend posed the question to me of where was the best place to go out to dinner in the dupont area for $15 or less. After providing the usual responses such as Zorba's, CPK, Bertucci's, Thaiphoon (without alcohol) and the usual happy hour specials at other local bars, I started to wonder what really was the best place. So I pose the question to you.
If you only had $15 to spend on dinner including tax and tip, where would you go?
Depending how much you ordered (and no alcohol) you could probably get by with $15 at Sakana on P St. (Sushi). You could probably get 2 sets of rolls and a piece or 2 of sashimi I imagine.
And its daaaammmnnn good ...especially their Sakana Tempura Roll.
That or the chicken salad sandwich at SoHo Coffee. Breakfast, lunch, dinner...that sandwich is amazing.
What is this craziness?
Zorba's is gross, Bertucci's???
For Thai/Asian, the relatively new Banana Leaves on Florida near the Hilton is excellent. Their mango sticky rice is the best in the city.
There's a Five Guys now in Dupont.
Pizzas at Sette are actually decent.
