Food & Drink

For gastronomes who revel in food experiences, it’s time to reserve a table in the nation’s capital. The annual Washington, DC Michelin Guide is brimming with starred restaurants, affordable hot spots and essential eating insights covering nearly 130 restaurants in the metro area. And many of them participate in Washington Restaurant Week! But Washington is also home to numerous casual yet delicious dining options. Ben’s Chili Bowl is an iconic fixture on the Washington scene as is Georgetown Cupcake. Small restaurants, hole-in-the-wall eateries and even food trucks deliciously dot the city’s landscape.

Grocery shopping is also a breeze in the Washington area. From ethnic food stores, such as Great Wall to smaller organic shops such as Yes! Organic Market and the larger MOM’s Organic Market to traditional staples like Safeway, Giant and Whole Foods – the ingredients you need are always nearby.
