I am excited to be visiting the metro DC area from Los Angeles for 4 days during restaurant week. I want to focus my food tour to restaurants that are classically "DC" or surrounding area. LA has alot of excellent ethnic eats such as Japanese, Chinese and Mexican so no need to recommend on that. What's DC known for in terms of food and any ethnic gems? I hear ethiopian is very good.
Are there any must-try restaurants that are participating in restaurant week?
Also looking for one statement restaurant for one of the nights. All suggestions are so appreciated! Thanks for your response in advance and look forward to your city!
