NY Foodies heading to DC for a trip to visit colleges. Though I went to school in DC years ago, I fear I've not kept up with the food scene, except wishing Jose Andres would open a spot in NYC.
Anyway, do you have a recommendation for someplace with good food in either location? Most any kind will do, even American "local." We just want someplace hopping, more or less and may give us some feel for the local food scene. The two neighborhoods mentioned are so that we could walk around before or after diner. Dupont Circle too would be fine.
Although not in either neighborhood Is Jalo one such option? Is there an equivalent to the Old Ebbitt Grill in Georgetown, but with good food?
