Good Spanish food is hard to find in DC, but Boqueria does a damn good job bringing you as close to Spain as possible. The outdoor patio is often packed out during lunch and dinner with Dupont Circle workers grabbing a bite, but slide in for early Happy Hour to get a more chill vibe with all the great food. If you’re looking for an inside seat, don’t be deterred by the dual staircase out front, there is an elevator that makes the whole restaurant accessible. The patatas bravas, a staple of Spanish cuisine, are crispy and doused in flavorful sauces. Pair them with the gamabs al ajillo that have a bright, lemony taste.
