This engaging, comfortable establishment serves some of the best rib-platters in the area, and has been a magnet for meat-lovers since its re-opening. With an eclectic menu of chicken and seafood options, George’s is the perfect informal lunch and dinner venue for almost any occasion. Widely reviewed for their officious service, homely interior, and ebullient atmosphere, George’s BBQ is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and can be the scene of large crowds on late-nights, so it’s always best to call ahead for a table.
Classy and modern, Et Voila is one of the best resorts in the area for traditional French/Belgian cuisine, and its menu has easily some of the most creative, beautifully presented dishes. Specializing in beef, duck, and seafood and featuring a large, well-disposed dining-room with a cozy outside terrace for fair weather, Et Voila is also the purveyor of one of the greatest selection of Belgian beers in the city.
One of the few purveyors of authentic German cuisine in the area, Old Europe gives a measure of old-world nuance sorely lacking among the contemporary dining-houses of Wisconsin Avenue. Fancifully decorated with rustic oil-paintings and various German steins and porcelain, Old Europe serves a range of seafood and vegetarian options in addition to its specialty line of sausage courses (like the “Wurstteller” platter – an assortment of handmade Bratwurst, Bauernwurst, Knackwurst, and Debreziner Wurst served with a generous selection of dips and toppings), and features an uptstairs banqueting room and buffet table.
