DC Restaurants

#1 Post by Milton Hudson » June 22nd, 2020, 6:08 am

My son is helping a friend move from Birmingham to the district in a week or so. They want to hit some nicer low key spots. Any recommendations of what might be open and have good practices. His friend is going to work for the Fed and will be living in the NoMa area. I think pretty much any area of the district is fair game. Upper price point is probably $75pp.

I would be hesitant to dine indoors. There are places with outside dining but it's pretty hot and humid right now. Check the Washing Post site and www.donrockwell.com
Lots of good places offer takeout so it might be safer to go that route.

I'm not keeping up on who is open or who is not.

However, in the Noma area St Anselm seems open - they are not bad.

The first restaurant I will eat in in almost 4 months will be Annabelle. I believe they are open. The chef is a local legend and the best in DC.

Annabelle was really nice. The most pure Frank Ruta dinner I've had since, well, Palena!

They had a great time at Annabelle last night. Thanks for the recommendation.
