We had requested lamb but the piece that came out was somewhat dried out. They cooked more just for us. The manager came to make sure we were taken care of. Great customer service. More

Nobody does it better, from the creativity and presentation of the food to the impeccable service, the Inn sits alone at the summit. Having eaten there once before some 10 years ago, it is nothing short of extraordinary that they have maintained their high standards and quality throughout the years. A must-experience for every foodie's bucket list. More

Discover Washington, D.C.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. 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.
