40 "Lunch" restaurants in Washington DC.
Part trendy clothing store, part Cambodian/Thai restaurant, Maketto might just be the coolest spot in DC right now.
Another Jose Andres spot with solid tapas. Head to Zaytinya for a power lunch that doesn’t feel like a power lunch.
Timber is a casual pizza spot in Shaw that's great for a low-key dinner or a group-hang outside.
Smoked & Stacked is a sandwich shop in Shaw that will meet (and exceed) all your greasy pastrami needs.
A casual spot by day, and a proper restaurant by night, hit The Partisan in Penn Quarter if you really enjoy meat.
There are plenty of ramen options in the District nowadays. Head to Daikaya in Chinatown when you're craving lighter, more traditional noodles.
Rasa is a fast-casual Indian spot next to Nats Park that’ll make you reevaluate your go-to stadium meal.
For big, meat-heavy sandwiches that will probably put you to sleep, go to Stachowski in Georgetown.
The one chain in Georgetown we appreciate. Go to Sweetgreen for something mostly healthy while you’re running errands.
Surfside is where you go for Mexican around Glover Park. Take advantage of their roof.
For a kind of healthy lunch in Georgetown, get some of the (surprisingly good) vegetarian tacos at Chaia.
Federalist Pig in Adams Morgan is serving some of the best barbecue in town.
Hill Country is a DC barbecue VIP, and it’s conveniently located in Penn Quarter.
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.
