I went on a food tour in Chicago this weekend. The tour guide took us to six different restaurants (a hot dog restaurant, a hot chocolate place, a gourmet grocery store that served pasta and similar dishes, a pizza place, a falafel place, and an ice cream place). Some of the places were historic, some were interesting and innovative, and all of them were great but inexpensive. At each, we had a small amount of food (a single hot dog or slice of pizza, for example) before moving on.
Does DC have anything similar? I have some friends coming into town next month and would like to put something together for them if it doesn't already exist. What places would you guys recommend for something like that? We don't mind walking, but won't have access to a car, and won't want to leave the District. We'll have a whole weekend, so we can do two separate legs if that makes the most sense.
