Recs for Detroit foodie visiting Georgetown June 1-3?
Smiles2008 may have worn-out posters with the, "Your 10 favorite DC Metro restaurants," topic.... But, can you go another round, specifically for Georgetown, and state why you like a couple restaurants? Scope: breakfast, lunch or dinner spots; no national chains; no steakhouses, Asian or Middle Eastern places (Detroit has plenty), and try to keep a dinner-for-two under $70. (a block or two beyond Georgetown-proper works, too, of course.)
For great coffee and pastries for breakfast: Baked and Wired www.bakedandwired.com
In addition to B&W, another spot for great cupcakes is Georgetown Cupcake www.georgetowncupcake.com The sisters who own this place are getting their own TV show soon.
For wonderful and dirt cheap masala dosa: Amma Vegetarian Kitchen www.ammavegkitchen.com I think this is one of the very best "bangs for the buck" in DC.
For good fish dinners and fish tacos in a very casual atmosphere: Tackle Box www.tackleboxrestaurant.com Its more expensive sister restaurant, Hook, is next door. Hook has been well-reviewed, but I haven't been.
For wonderful Turkish food in a very pleasant atmosphere at very reasonable prices: Cafe Divan www.cafedivan.com
For wonderful gelato and churros: Dolcezza Gelato www.dolcezzagelato.com
For good tart frozen yogurt and salads: SweetGreen www.sweetgreen.com
You could do a very nice high-end take out dinner from Dean and De Luca. Also, FYI, there is a Trader Joe's in Georgetown.
That's about it off the top of my head - enjoy!
These are good recommendations for a neighborhood that, despite its popularity, has a dearth of notable restaurants. I would add to the list Bonaparte, which I love for its ambiance and crepes, and Bistro Lepic. Bistro Lepic can be pricy, but the upstairs wine bar has complimentary wine tastings and good prices on wines on Tuesdays, so you can get a great deal there, plus a less-expensive menu is served in the wine bar.
You have some good recs above.
I am not sure about dinner for two under $70, but you could look at the menu and see if it plausible, but Farenheit in the Ritz Carlton is good, and you could try out the Lounge at Citronelle for a taste of one of the best restaurants in the city.
I like Filomena for pasta too. Huge servings of handmade pasta.
I haven't been to Agraria in forever so I don't know if it is good, but they used to have good normal American food- roast chicken, pot pie, etc.
