Hill Country (Penn Quarter) The best BBQ in DC - prepare to drink from a mason jar & use paper towels instead of napkins.
The Hamilton (Downtown) Great for large groups. Check out the lunch menu here.
Pizzeria Da Marco (Bethesda) Authentic Neapolitan, D.O.P. pizzas. Bonus: they have outdoor seating.
Ben's Chili Bowl (U Street) A D.C. classic.
2 Amy's Pizza (Cleveland Park) Another fabulous pizza spot. Note: they don't serve lunch on Mondays.
Alero (Multiple locations) Our favorite spot is the U Street location.
The Diner (Adams Morgan) This place has everything, and it's also a great spot for brunch or late-night eats.
Taylor Gourmet (multiple locations) THE best sandwiches in the DMV.
Shake Shack (multiple locations) Quite possibly D.C.'s best burger joint (sorry, Five Guys!)
