I'll be visiting your fair city this week, staying in Dupont. I'm digging through this site (& washingtonpost.com) and finding lots of interesting options. But I'm having a hard time figuring out what is unique to Washington DC or is just so damn good I shouldn't miss it.
What are the 10 things you think it would be absolutely criminal to leave without tasting?
For example, I'm from San Francisco and among my top ten SF bites are (in no particular order): champagne float from Citizen Cake, tofu banh mi from Saigon Sandwiches, pain epi from Acme, gougere from Tartine, hankerchief pasta/pork ragu from Incanto, Tommy's margaritas, fruit at the Ferry Bldg Market.
