OK, DC Chowhound coming your way.

So, instead of asking you to pick spots for me completely out of the blue, I've created a far-reaching list complied from a wide variety of sources to which I would love your help in whittling down.

Feel free to slash and burn. I trust the consensus majority here. I've rarely been steered wrong by the hounds. I should note that I'll be in town with a group of people, so some nights we'll be expense-happy and others winging it.

One further note before dropping the list, I am originally from L.A. and am craving some good soft tacos, so any comments there are quite welcome. I have a few spots listed that might fit the bill (?).
