Can anybody recommend any please? Thanks.

  1. I'm not sure there are any. There are a few left in Adams Morgan, but the quality ones are mostly in the U St corridor.

      Yep, your best bet is to head to Dukem or Etete in the U street corridor - c.25 minutes' walk or a 7 minute cab ride from Dupont.
      There is also Zeds - about the same distance in the other direction - Georgetown. Not bad.

        My son just went to Etete the other night and said it was great.

    2. I wish I could have given you a good smarta$$ answer and told you to start at the Dupont Circle Metro station, but ya gotta go to Gallery Place and transfer to the green or yellow line to U street before you get to the current DC version of Little Ethiopia. The weather's nice so you might as well walk (but I'd suggest taking a cab home if it's after dinner).

      Queen Makeba, Dukem, Etete, a couple of others all within about two blocks (south) of the Metro station.
