I am a new resident in Capitol Hill fresh from a year in Texas (i.e. totally spoiled on good Mexican), and originally from NYC.
I would *love* to find a good solid quality set of local "joints" (restaurants and pubs) that I can walk to without having to think about after a hard day.
I am a big fan of supporting local places, but except for Starfish and a local rib place (I forget the name), there isn't a lot that excites me in Capitol Hill.
Can anyone help me find rock-solid places? Doesn't have to be pretty -- just good and dependable.
