Restaurant Recommendations - U Street Area

Melanie | Mar 24, 2008 10:50 AM

Hello folks!

Per my review on Central, I am moving to Washington, D.C. from Manhattan (and am incredibly excited!)

Many people here have said that once I leave NYC, what I will miss most is the restaurant scene. However, I am inclined to disagree. I have been visiting D.C. regularly for 2 years now, and I think that the city has some real gems that are competetive with the best of Manhattan.

I was walking down U Street on Saturday and there were at least 20 restaurants that looked amazing, however, I would like some opinions from the experts.

My boyfriend and I are moving in around the 16th and U. What are you favorites around that area? We are mainly looking for inexpensive/moderately priced, but also interested in the pricier places (for when relatives come to town!)

Thanks for your help and I look forward to living in your lovely city!
