Need DC rec- something similar to Local in Dallas, Texas?

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?

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

    1. 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

      1990 M St NW # 2, Washington, DC

      Founding Farmers
      1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20006

      1. re: WestIndianArchie

        Local is a serious restaurant. CityZen although the ambience is entirely different.

        Also: Volt

        CityZen Restaurant
        1330 Maryland Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20024

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

        1. Try Willow in Ballston.
