Brazilian Steakhouse | Downtown, District of Columbia

What a great experience this was! Incredible spread, phenomenal service, perfectly prepared food. From the grilled zucchini to the warm cheese bread to the savory, fall-off-the-bone meat, every food item exceeded expectation. I gave a 4 stars for the value because we're small eaters and probably didn't eat our money's worth. If you're ready to spend a lot on exquisite food in the heart of DC, then this is the spot. More

American | Washington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

This was a wonderful place to share my wife's birthday with her sister and brother-in-law. We had fantastic food, wonderful amuse Bouche times four,a four course meal with four wine pairings that were delicious and an outstanding seven sins chocolate dessert that was over the top. A visit to the Gardens afterwards topped it off with a wonderful view of all their fresh vegetables and herbs along with the goats, llama, and chickens that were grazing on the farm next to the chef Patrick's home.

Matchbox - Potomac MillsMatchbox - Potomac Mills
American | Woodbridge, Virginia - DC Suburbs

matchbox started out as a dream and a lot of hard work…not in a board room or on wall street. there was a lot of blood, sweat and (a few) tears on the backs of three friends who had a vision to serve great food and have seamless service in a space that expressed a passion for design. 12 years later, our main goal is always creating food, service + ambiance to cause our guests to return.
Our artisanal pizza begins with the brick oven packed with a blend of wood that gives each its unique flavor. the high temperature of the oven allows the dough to become crispier in a shorter amount of time, creating the thin, crispy crust that has become the signature of matchbox pizzas.
Our bistro menu starts with innovative recipes developed by our talented chefs, which are constructed with fresh ingredients for quality food. we’re always changing the meals that we offer to bring new + exciting flavors that stand apart from our pizza.More

And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
