No trip to DC is complete without heading over to Chinatown. After you take your obligatory photo under the entryway (yes, we’re judging, but also we get it), head over to Tony Cheng’s. This spot has graced H St. long before Walgreens put all the Chinese markets out of business. There are two restaurants here, but head upstairs to sample the solid Chinese menu. It’s the closest you’ll get to Chinese fine-dining in this part of town, and the mirrored columns, gold accents, and sturdy, burgundy chairs give the place a regal (though dated) feel.
