Restaurants that make you leave your neighborhood?

So I should be studying, but...

We all kind of like to stay in our neighborhoods, which is understandable, most of us have good chow nearby, are tired or don't have cars, or don't feel like the hassle.

So my question is what restaurants will make you cross town? Not necessarily high end places we will all go further for a big special night, but the small places you crave from across town, I live in NOVA, so places that make me cross town or that I am going to cross town for after finals but haven't been to yet are:

Palena Cafe (the back part I like, but it is more special occasion)
Creme Cafe I haven't been to yet, but I am going to cross town for this one
Same with Marvin and Oohs and Aahs, but I gotta spread my Southern out...
Cheeburger Cheeburger
Bob's Noodle
Carolina Brother's BBQ
Hank's Oyster Bar (now I can go to Old Town)
Potato Valley in Annapolis, I heard they have one in DC, but have never had a chance to call and find out.
Taqueria Poblano

So what will you come out for?
