Informal dining in DC

Recommended Posts

here thru the elections - looking for good, informal places - no specific cuisine

I had dinner at



- octopus with olives, was great

- pizza also delicious

looking for same kind of atmosphere - no necessarily italian inspired. I am at Dupont Circle, but anywhere within reachable by Metro is fine

Any help appreciated

Wow, lots of choices. A manageable walk east from the Circle is Birch & Barley. Also a manageable walk south is Rasika West End. Toward the east side of the Circle is Little Serow (not the same atmosphere as Graffiato, but not to be missed. Get in line early.) Two stops north on the Red Line (Cleveland Park) are Palena Cafe and Ardeo/Bardeo.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
