Top Restaurants in Washington DC
In the past few years Washington DC has made a transition from being known as a “political hub” to a “foodie town.” If you are planning on making Washington DC your home or simply coming to town for a visit, then get ready to loosen your belt a notch or two because DC is home to some of the best restaurants. With so many restaurants to choose from, we have taken the liberty of narrowing the list down to just two of the best places to enjoy culinary delights.
City Zen at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Chef Ziebold creates modern American cuisine delicacies for the diners of CityZen. This amazing restaurant features dishes that explode with flavor. A four-course prix fixe menu, a six-course chef’s tasting menu, or a six-course vegetarian tasting menu all await your palate. But wait, here’s more!
CityZen takes you on a culinary journey from land, to sea, to veggie. Throughout this journey your sense of taste, sight, smell, and even sound are employed. But what is a good meal without a great finish? Meals at CityZen are completed with the creations of award-winning Executive Pastry Chef Matthew Petersen. Reservations are recommended to best enjoy this exclusive dining experience.
Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons, Georgetown
Bourbon Steak is a delectable Michael Bina restaurant that of course features a hard-to-beat steak. But don’t let the name fool you. Bourbon Steak also has a wide arrangement of other dishes, including tuna tartar and vegetarian dishes that don’t leave you missing meat. Reservations are recommended for private dining experiences; the restaurant also features a lounge and a weather-permitting open patio.
While we may have said that we would narrow the list of Washington DC restaurants down to just two, we felt that we had to include a few of the other top-rated dining experiences. Blue Duck Tavern, Restaurant Nora, and Marcel’s are all amazing restaurants that should be immediately tried. What can we say – Washington DC is a “foodie town” after all!
