quick trip to dc need breakfast and lunch recs

Looking for good choice for breakfast will be in either UDC or US AID (1300 Pennsylvania) areas for breakfast and near verizon center for lunch.

Also any recs for a good dc liquor store? looking for good rum selection. Will have car for liquor store travel if necessary

  1. There is an excellent restaurant at The Hotel Monaco called Poste Brasserie, and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can find more information here: I've eaten here many times, and aside from the delicious food, the decor is beautiful.

    1. For breakfast if at 13 and Penn I don't think Teaism is too far away. There aren't a ton of breakfast options in the city. For lunch you have tons of options. I like eating at Zaytinya for lunch especially if I can eat outside. Proof is also a good choice.

      For the liquor Ace beverages has just about any beverage you could ever want.

      1. Your lunch options are ridiculously great. Way too many to mention. If you are pressed for time, the chicken at Nando's Peri Peri is very good, but you should get dark meat, spicy to get the full effect. Mozambiquan.

        CoCo Sala has an unusual menu of cacao-inspired food. They have a set lunch menu which saves you a couple of bucks, or better yet go for the baby beet salad, the crabcake, and the artisanal flight of chocolates. (maybe you have to reserve here?)

        1. Make the walk and check out Tosca, Rasika, Zaytinya, or Central for lunch - all are very much worth it and not too much a hike!

          Rasika Restaurant
          633 D Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004

          1. UDC/ Van Ness? Good luck. You can try Epicurean & Co. for breakfast, a cafeteria style place with a lot of mediocre options. I think they open at 6:30. 4250 Connecticut Ave.

            There's not a lot in that immediate vicinity for breakfast, besides Starbucks.
