Vibrant and ever-changing, the Washington DC food scene is a class act, and ever more so each year as new restaurants open, offering a gamut of dining experiences, from formal dining in a luxury hotel to fabulous new bistros and speakeasies to dining at the bar, a growing – and less expensive – alternative to sit-down dining with a reservation.
Beltway residents, visiting luminaries, government bureaucrats, and tourists all crowd into the city's eateries at peak hours, creating a traffic nightmare on top of a reservation requirement, so try to take public transport where possible. Alternatively, spring for valet parking, which can feel like a bargain when there is no parking for a square mile.
