Washington DC - United States

From Embassy Row to Capitol Hill, Washington is a city of people with tastes as varied as the opinions of Congress. At Washington's restaurants, diners will find everything from regional American specialties to varied ethnic food.

An area that has gone through a number of changes over the years, Adams-Morgan is now one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the city and this is reflected in its eateries. If you want to try Ethiopian, Meskerem is a good bet. For Mexican, go forĀ Grill from Ipanema is as good as its clever name suggests for fun cocktails and Brazilian food. Numerous bars and coffeehouses are open till late for after-dinner conversation and people-watching.

Chinatown/Seventh Street
Chinatown is a great area to have a bite or two, make sure to try Tony Cheng's. Head to Seventh Street, once a fashionable shopping district, it is emerging as a center for arts and culture. For tapas and sangria, head to Jaleo or, if you're in the mood for Irish stew and a Guinness, visit Fado.

Downtown/Foggy Bottom
There are lots of exciting restaurants in the downtown area that cater to office workers. Whether you're going for a power lunch, a business dinner or just want to have a great meal, Old Ebbitt Grill is a Washington favorite. Craving seafood?

Dupont Circle
With its many restaurants, shops and bars, Dupont Circle is a fun area to be on weekend evenings. Most of the bars above Massachusetts Avenue and P Street attract mainly a gay crowd, but everyone is welcome. If you're in the mood for upscale Southern food, try Vidalia. At The Palm you might catch a glimpse of a TV political pundit as you enjoy your steak and martinis. For a more calming environment, Teaism is an Asian teahouse with small meals and, of course, a wide selection of exotic teas. If you'd rather browse books and have coffee after dinner, try Kramerbooks.

Georgetown/Washington Harbor
Cosmopolitan and hip, Georgetown is full of student-oriented clubs. The older crowd can enjoy jazz at Blues Alley. Start down at the harbor area at Sequoia Restaurant for a drink as the sun sets over the Potomac. Stay for dinner, or head up to Georgetown for the best Ethiopian fare around at Zed's.

Old Town Alexandria
The town of George Washington and Robert E. Lee, Alexandria is steeped in history. Experience its past as you sample some of Washington's favorite dishes at Gadsby's Tavern Museum, where the General often dined. For decadent Southern food and outrageous desserts, Southside 815 is a must.

Bethesda, Maryland
Just over the District of Columbia line in Maryland, Bethesda is the mecca for food lovers. Bacchus is popular for its Lebanese mezze and kebabs, and Bethesda Crab House is the place to go for some of those famous Maryland crabs.
