This minimalist coffee shop moonlights as a low-key bar. Rarely crowded, it’s a perfect spot to grab a light, avocado-toast-type meal, catch up with a friend, or get work done while soaking in the bounty of natural sunlight and WiFi.

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.

Duke's Grocery

Duke’s Grocery is a low-key gastropub in a Dupont row house. The burger is rightly famous, but you won't be disappointed with anything on the menu.
