DBGB Kitchen & Bar

DBGB is Chef Daniel Boulud’s casual French-American restaurant located in CityCenterDC. Best described as "a little bit brasserie, a little bit bistro, half French, half American," DBGB serves seasonal Lyonnais-inspired cooking, seven varieties of house-made sausages, two gourmet burgers, and more for lunch and dinner seven days a week. The large, buzzy bar features a robust craft beer program and creative cocktails, in addition to an impressive but approachable international wine list.  Closest Metro is Gallery Place-Chinatown.

Sushi Taro

Sushi Taro underwent a makeover in late 2008 when Chef Nobu Yamazaki wanted to "change the direction of Japanese cooking in this city". Located upstairs from a CVS store, Sushi Taro is notably the finest source of sushi in Washington with an alluring setting in which to admire it. The only restaurant to offer Kaiseki, "a traditional dining experience that combines the elegance of Japan's ancient courtly cuisine with the simplicity of Buddhist temple fare", Sushi Taro is a hidden gem and deserves credit as one of DC's finest restaurants. Closest Metro is Dupont Circle.

Zaytinya

Zaytinya us a trendy, fun, Mediterranean mezzes (small dishes – like tapas) restaurant. Great service and the price is fairly decent ranging from $7-11 a plate. Plan to order 5 - 6 plates per couple. Mostly serve Greek and other Mediterranean wines along with trendy overpriced cocktails that use Turkish fruits like apricot, pear, and pomegranate. They also have a patio for summer dining. I have sat inside, in various sections of the large restaurant; each decorated with modern contemporary d├ęcor as well as outside on the patio. Even the bathrooms are modern with “floating” faucets and extra private toilet stalls. Closest Metro is Gallery Place.
