We had an amazing meal at Local in Dallas, TX, over the weekend. I was trying to come up with a comparable DC spot, and couldn't think of a one- besides just making suggestionons based on cuisine type (modern american with a comfort food twist)- has anyone eaten there and know of something similar in DC?

    I haven't eaten at Local but your brief description sounds a little like The Majestic in Old Town Alexandria.

      Haven't eaten there, but based on the menu, there are prolly a dozen of those kinda places in DC. I'd throw out Vidalia or Founding Farmers to start

        Local is a serious restaurant. CityZen although the ambience is entirely different. http://www.mandarinoriental.com/washington/images/cityzen.pdf

        Haven't eaten there, but from your description will also throw in Liberty Tavern in NOVA.
