Planning a D.C. Vacation around food

BobMack | Aug 18, 2006 10:24 PM

My wife and I always plan our vacations around food and sightseeing so I'm looking for a little help in both departments.

We are going to be in D.C. for a Saturday and a Sunday in the last week of September and Annapolis on Monday. We need to do all of the tourist things like look at the landmarks and such, we aren't really into musuems but we always check out must see exhibits.

We are looking for some breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas based around a day of sightseeing. We definitely would like to eat ethiopian since we know D.C. has the best. We are coming from Los Angeles so Asian and Mexican are not really the top priorities but we really want good food and food that we can't get in D.C. We like places that people know are D.C. (in LA we have Phillipes and Pinks, etc). We are looking for reasonable meals and maybe one more expensive dinner around $20/entree.

Is it better to stay in D.C? I'm going to be in College Park the week before, should I just stay there and ride the metro in for the weekend?

Help us with some food recs based around sights (anything in Annapolis is welcome too). Thanks
