Top Five Go-To Restaurants in DC Metro Area?

I was just wondering if any of you chowhounders could share what your Go-To restaurants are right now...

I know we have had similar posts in the last couple of years but the DC metro dining scene is always changing. I myself would like to stay fresh with what is really good food in our area.

Thanks for sharing.

    1. re: Steve

      We had another fantastic Bangkok Golden meal on Sun. night. Rice paste salad, crispy watercress salad (special) and pork Orm, which was awesome. Plus, my kids like the Thai menu so much they won't go anywhere else for dinner.

      1. re: bougouni

        Pork orm is a now one for me, must try that the next time.
