Good Restaurant near Metro Center Marriott?
I have friend coming into town and staying at the Metro Center Marriott. We'd like to go someplace fun with good food and atmosphere within walking distance. I know Zatinya is nearby and I like it there, but I thought I might try something new. Any suggestions? She's not a vegetarian, but doesn't eat a huge amount of meat.
There are many choices in that area, depending on what your walking distance is. I've only been to Bibiana for lunch at the bar, but based on that I would definitely recommend it. I haven't been to Ceiba in a while but I liked it. Rasika is excellent if you consider it walking distance. I like the pizzas and the Ahi Tuna salad at Matchbox.
You might also try Cure Bar & Bistro in the Grand Hyatt (11th & H). It has a nice tapas -type lunch where you can choose 3-5 items for roughly $15-20 or so. Not sure about dinner items. But lunch was filling even though at first it looked like very small proportions.
Ceiba's good ... I went there last summer during restaurant week.
Also good so I've heard though never tried is DC Coast (14th & K)
Jaleo, Oyamel, Cuba Libre, Alba Osteria (a little farther at 4th and I NW), City Tap House, Nopa. Coco Sala for Cocolate themed.
