I live in Southern California and will be traveling to Washington DC for a week beginning 10/10. We will be staying near Wardman Park and be using Metro/Bus as transport.
Would you please post your must hit food spots?
I tend to gravitate to casual dining more than fine dining. Take out, food on the go tips are great too.
I don't care for fish, or national chain restaurants.
I'm not up to speed on DC specialties, so if there is a food native to this region, I'd be all over it.
Burgers, fries, pizza, Italian, Ethiopian, Greek, Middle Eastern, BBQ, fried chicken, Soul food, Vietnamese, Japanese, if I forgot to mention something, it's all up for grabs.
I would also love advice on the top flight Ice Cream and Donut destinations, if there is something special to be had.
