I am moving from NY to DC for a new job--I will only be in DC for training, so I will be around a few months, a year max. I am really sad to be leaving all the food options of NY, but I figured this board would be the best place to start sniffing out the best of DC!
So if you had a few months to explore DC's food scene, where would you go? I am thinking high end to low end--the whole spectrum. I want the key experiences. So far I am very excited for a few of the high-end restaurants (Citronelle, Cityzen, etc.), the Eden Center (Vietnamese food in NY is pathetic), Southern food (Southern food in NY is pathetic), and lots of Ethiopian choices... what else? What is a great DC experience--bonus if it is something DC does better than NY?
