Washington DC - Dupont Circle - Recommendations Needed
San Francisco hound coming to Washington for wedding in middle of September. One free Thursday night available and looking for recommendation. Ideally, seeking "food guy" or foodies restaurant rather than place to see parasitic legislators or other government workers. Other good recommendations would be for Indian food as well. Thanks you for thoughts and recommendations.
Sushi Taro. If you can get into the omakase room the price/quality ratio is probably the best I can think of. That does not mean cheap in that it is still $150, but that the same meal is $400 in LA or New York and I'm pretty sure such quality doesn't exist in SF.
considering most people here are "other government workers", perhaps take a bus to Baltimore?
Now, if you care about great food and now how people earn their living (working hard with zero recognition in most cases), there are tons of options.
You can walk to rasika west end from dupont.
For amazing Indian, not that far from Dupont Circle go to the new Rasika West End. It is Indian cuisine like you've never seen it before. They use French cooking technique with classic Indian flavors. A really stellar meal! Make sure not to miss the palak chat---in my opinion it is the single best dish in DC.
