French American | Downtown, District of Columbia

It's hard to find a good breakfast place in DC! The buffet was lovely - all the things you would want from french pastries to eggs, bacon, croque monsieurs, french toast and earthy waffles. They even had some specialty items, which were a treat. Also, the fruit was remarkably fresh and yummy. We enjoyed one of our employee's one-year anniversary breakfast there and will return for the next one! Also, the lobby and location of the hotel are prime. Everything was decorated for the holiday - so much fun! More

Vegan | Downtown, District of Columbia

Elizabeth's was - yet again - one of (if not most certainly) the best dining experience I've had. One of DC's best-kept secrets, well worth a visit for any special occasion dinner, or even just to the bar for a spectacular cocktail. Inventive dishes, meticulously prepared and plated, elevate dishes beyond anything you might expect, and the service is second to none. Worth every penny and perfect for omnivores and raw vegans alike. More
