At Mussel Bar, the name speaks for itself. Pots of mussels are the move - try the broth with mushrooms, bacon, and truffle, get extra bread, and soak up the pot until it’s dry. When it’s not too humid out, grab a table for happy hour on their outdoor patio.

A classic that can be used for dates or heavy drinking. Maybe even at the same time. The food’s great too.
The one chain in Georgetown we appreciate. Go to Sweetgreen for something mostly healthy while you’re running errands.
Tabard Inn in Dupont has a reliable brunch, but the patio is a nice spot for dinner (and live jazz), too.
