Eat like a Local in Washington DC


Eat like a Local in Washington DC

This is by no means an inclusive list, but restaurants where I’ve eaten with my child and had a warm reception from the staff as well as a delicious meal. I suggest that if you’re dining with your small kids you eat early, lunch at 11- dinner at 5- it will be less crowded and you’ll have a better reception from the restaurant and other diners. I was interviewed about this for a Washington Post article, see it here
