Hello Chowhounders,

I am going to be going to school in DC starting later in the year, and I am trying to psych myself up for this change by trying to find restaurants that I must try. I spent some time in DC a few years ago, and was in general disappointed with the food I could find in the District. I found lots of amazing places in the Northern Virginia suburbs, but found a lot of the food in DC to be really expensive and not flavorful.

I am sure that there must be places that I have missed, so please help me find them! I tend to enjoy underground places with creative food. I'm really into street food, too. I'm going to be a student, so my budget won't be huge for nightly dining. Also, are there any good supermarkets with local produce, or farmers' markets worth checking out?

Please help guide me! I'd be grateful!
