I will be traveling down to Washington DC for 3 days with my family over x'mas holiday. Did a quick search on the board and OpenTable for potential restos but couldn't narrow down the options. I am looking for restaurants (or food) that are,
1. unique food to washington area if any
2. American cuisine (still baffled by the category, need confirmation of authentic places)
3. mid-price ($40 before tax & tips, excluding drinks), exceptional home cooking style restos
Please feel free to list your favorites. BTW, are there any specific type of cuisine that is done especially well in the area???
Thanks in advance!
