Recommendations near National Harbor?

Recommended Posts

I’m going to be at a professional meeting being held in National Harbor this weekend, and would like to try to get in a great dinner Saturday evening. Does not need to be fancy (cheap is actually great!), just really good and close enough to the meeting that it’s not a huge hassle to get/park there. Love just about any cuisine except chain restaurants!

The only one I could speak to semi-directly is Succotash; I've been only to the one in DC. Still, it's well-rated and it's right in National Harbor. You also have good options in nearby Alexandria if you're willing to drive (not sure about the parking situation, but you'd probably have to pay) or, even better (but more expensive), take the ferry from the Harbor to Old Town, then walk or hop on the trolley. I'd recommend Nasime or Vermillion. There's also the venerable Taverna Cretekou, but I've never been there. And if you get to Alexandria early, you can visit the Torpedo Factory Arts Center (it closes at 6), which is right by the ferry landing.

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."
