Duke's Grocery

Duke’s “proper burger” is the stuff of DC legend. And while some legends are overhyped, some are hyped just right. Luckily, Duke’s burger is the Goldilocks of hype. The little row house has beer garden seating outside, a few tables at the bar downstairs, and a small dining room up top. The rest of the menu is exactly what you’d expect from an upscale pub (buzzwords include truffle oil, runny egg, and garlic aioli), and has lots of cocktail and liquor options. No reservations, so come early or prepare yourself for a long wait.

Little Serow

Little Serow’s Northern Thai tasting menu is not only one of the best deals in DC - it’s one of the best meals in DC. Just prepare for some heat.

Daikaya

There are plenty of ramen options in the District nowadays. Head to Daikaya in Chinatown when you're craving lighter, more traditional noodles.
