DC Trip Report

Have just returned from a short visit to Washington DC. Really enjoyed the sights and the Fall weather of your city. Our dining choices were somewhat limited since we had our nine year old with us, eliminating most of the high end restaurants. Still we managed some good meals.

Florida Avenue Grill; awesome breakfast of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, coffee and bisquits. A great way to fuel up for a day of sightseeing.

Old Ebbitt Grill; really crowded and loud at dinner, but lots of fun. Enjoyed the crab cakes, parmesan trout and their fresh pumpkin pie.

Legal Seafood; had the freshly tossed salad and their clam chowder, perfect for a light lunch.

Sushi Taro; nice selection of sushi and other cold and grilled items from the kitchen. The only glitch was when we ordered some roasted rice balls (yaki onigiri) to finish our dinner. After waiting about 20 minutes, we checked with the waitress who came back to tell us it would be at least another 20 minutes since the cook was busy. We cancelled our order, but otherwise had a fine meal.

Old Glory BBQ; our worst meal of the trip. Food came about 2 minutes after we ordered and everything was lukewarm at best. Had to send the plates back to be reheated. Ribs were ok but not fall off the bone tender, sides were mediocre, pulled pork absolutely dreadful. Very disappointed with the food here.

Ran out of time and meals, still haven't gotten more than a third of the way down my list of DC restaurants, guess they will have to wait for another visit.
