Move over, apple pie. America has a new favorite – and it’s Momofuku’s Milk Bar’s crack pie. It earns its name for its addictive salty-sweet combo that will make you come back for more.
This place is pho-real. Pho Viet got a nod from the Washington Post for best bowl of pho around. Try the beef special which has beef eye round, brisket, steak flank, soft tendon and meat balls in a spicy broth for under $10.
Nothing will warm your soul like a bowl of Greek Deli’s Avgolemono (chicken lemon) soup. This dish is made daily and sells out fast. It’s comforting, fresh and will leave you wanting seconds.
This 18th Street icon has perfected the art of late-night dining. Prevent hangovers (or cure them in the a.m.) with an order of breakfast tots: sautéed onions and mushrooms, bacon, cheddar, jalapeños, and two eggs any style on top of tots. Yum!
The Proper Burger at Duke’s Grocery brings a taste of London to the capital. Sorry vegetarians, this delightful dish isn’t for you. It has angus beef, melted gouda, pickles, red onion, and sweet chili sauce all stuffed into a brioche bun.
While not technically a dish, Green Hat Gin is distilled in Washington, D.C. by New Columbia Distillers. The gin offers a crisp and evergreen flavor. Visit the distillery on Saturdays for free tastings and tours and pick up a bottle to take home.
Get ready to pig out at Federalist Pig in Adams Morgan. This barbecue restaurant serves up wood-smoked meats and mind-blowing sides. The Pitmaster Special for two is a steal and allows you to try four meats and two sides (we recommend the mac and cheese).
