I'll be in DC a week from now for the first time. I'm pretty much tagging along with some friends who have business, and will just fish, do all the touristy things, and visit my sister. What are everyone's thoughts on the markets and restaurants I plan on visiting? Feel free to chime in with suggestions of other places, dishes to order, or why I should avoid something I picked. Most of the time we will not have a car. I'm more into ethnic food cooked by a grandma rather than a gastropub.
The fish market on the water for crabs-I have to.
Thai-xing-I love good thai food and the place sounds fun.
DC-3 - I want to try a white hot, and my friend who's going has never had some of the regional dogs.
Sushi Taro-This might not happen due to funds, but we're thinking about the kaiseki meal.
manouch dog- one of my good friends did undergrad at GWU. I have to go for him and get a picture.
Old Europe-My sister really wants to eat here. She can't cook at all and we grew up on german and czech food. I was going to cook duck, sauerkraut, and potato dumplings for her, but am banned from her place due to a bed bug infestation.
chef geoffs-It's my sister's favorite happy hour for the burgers.
The Sri Lankan food festival I read about on here. That's on my birthday too, so I'm super pumped.
General foodie things:
A Litteri, Hana, H Mart.
I'm also going clamming, oystering,and am hoping to find some ramps and morels on the drive out and back. We're driving from Iowa.
