I lived in DC for 4 years as a poor grad student and government employee, but am now back in SF. My favorite restaurants have been Palena and Johnny Halfshell. Have any new and delicious restaurant opened in DC since last year? How about new bakeries? I am not a fan of Cakelove though.
Price is not too much of a factor. I am particularly interested in treating myself to a nice lunch (alone since my friends will be working) on a Monday. Any recs? I prefer something that is not in Capitol Hill. Is the Breadline still top notch?
