What can I get in DC I can't find in LA

Mattapoisett in LA | Jul 31, 2009 12:58 PM

I lived here for a few years about a dozen years ago. My wife who has never been, and I are coming to meet friends, Co-workers and explore the city and possibly head to Baltimore for one day. I have some places I remember from my time that I want to go to but I also realize the city has changed in the years I've been gone.

I want to Hit:
Julia's Empanadas [No one in LA can make a Saltiñas Empanada worth a damn]
Ben's Chili Bowl [No one in LA has heard of a Half Smoke]
Georgia Brown's
Jaleo [can one get in on a weeknight?]
Possibly Maine Avenue Fish Market

That's what I can think of for now. Also, I am looking for a place to host 20 or so people for drinks and noshes near 7th and Mass Ave. Fado if it is still there is a bit small and loud so I am looking for options.

Thanks And Take Care
