Cava is our idea of the lunch move President. Because yes, there’s a version of elected office for Bethesda lunch places. Whether you get a salad, wrap, or plate, make sure to get the braised lamb on that bad boy. And if you come between the hours of 11am-1pm, expect a long line. Waiting in it is more important than getting back to work.

Mandu in Dupont has a casual Korean food (and great dumplings) perfect for a date, group hang, or catch-up.

Haikan

There are plenty of places to get ramen in DC, but Haikan is doing it a bit differently. Try it for a casual dinner next time you’re in Shaw.

Sweetgreen in Bethesda is further proof that the chain is taking over the DMV with salads. That’s a good thing.
