Marisa DunnCities Coordinator
Even though she's originally from Maryland, Carolina blue and white run through Marisa’s blood. And just like how fellow UNC alum Michael Jordan is really good at basketball, Marisa is really good at winning our office NCAA basketball pool every year. She’s also really good at setting up and operating our new markets as we expand around the US and beyond. Marisa's duties as Cities Coordinator ensure that she spends time working on nearly every city that The Infatuation exists in, and she therefore knows more about restaurants all around the country than pretty much anyone.
Hazel has an American menu with Japanese and Korean twists, and it’s one of the most exciting places to eat in DC right now.
The restaurant intel to know about right now.
The food at Colada Shop is just okay, but the space and location make it a good place for a quick meal around U Street.
Bread Furst is a bakery in Van Ness with some of our favorite pastries in town. It’s also a good spot for a quick breakfast or lunch.
All-Purpose is a neighborhood spot in Shaw with excellent Italian antipasti and some good pizza.
Like it’s Penn Quarter counterpart, Rasika West End serves some of the best upscale Indian food in the city.
Graffiato is a reliable small plates and Italian comfort food spot. Hit it up for date night, or before a show at the Verizon Center.
Centrolina is an Italian spot in CityCenter. It’s grownup, but the space is bright and the vibes aren’t stuffy.
Not sure what you want? Compass Rose is the move. The Logan Circle spot serves small plates inspired by street food from all over the world.
Anxo is a “cider” garden/bar/restaurant in Shaw. Come on a date and split a few small plates, or for a group hang when it’s nice out.
