    The good stuff is in Maryland or VA and you can search board for recs. But if you provide your location recs could be made for passable neighborhood places.

        You might want to tell the Board where you've already tried and more exactly what you're looking for -- and do a little more searching on here, too, this is a very popular topic. There are a couple szechuan places that CHers say are good in DC, and one or two Cantonese(?) places in Chinablock (Full Kee eg). I used to say there was no good Chinese around here, but after going to a couple places in the suburbs I'd eat my words. You can metro to, say, Wheaton if transportation is the issue.

      For my money I frequent Sichuan Pavilion at 1814 K Street, NW. Consistently tasty food, comfortable space and solid service.

      Menu can be found here: http://sichuanpavilion.googlepages.com/

        Is City Lights still open in Dupont? Last time I walked by it during dinnertime it looked closed.

          My favorite is Meiwah (in Foggy Bottom/Dupont)
