Lunch/Dinner near the Omni Shoreham
Will be in DC and staying at the Omni Shoreham from Thurs-Sun. Would love to hear some good food recs that I could take my family too. My kids are young but are willing to try anything. I/m not looking for IHOP but jacket and tie places are probably out (for this trip). Walking distance would be best but a short cab ride also do-able. Thanks!
Most (all?) places in the immediate vicinity (Woodley Park) are tourist traps. Mintwood Place and Cashion's Eat Place in Adams Morgan are excellent, and easily walkable from the Omni. A bit north on CT Ave is Cleveland Park, with Ripple, Ardeo, and a few others.
KevinS makes some ok suggestions. Come see me and we will find the perfect meal for everyone. "Tourist Trap" is a little harsh and blanket. District Kitchen is a great farm-to-table right around the corner. The Omni has a great Sunday Brunch, and Open City Diner offers breakfast throughout the day. The young ones always enjoy Ted's Bulletin. Danny @ Ripple will offer his usual great hospitality. If you want to try great ethnic, Mama Ayesha's is only 3 blocks. The DC CIRCULATOR will take you right from the hotel to lots of great offerings on 14th Street for a buck a ride.
