    My absolute favorite spot. They make the best old fashions and they have the best brussels sprouts recipe.

    For a long, leisurely meal - you will not be rushed. Skip the wings (better mumbo elsewhere) but get the fantastic reuben!

    Started the night with yellowfin tuna carpaccio followed by the duck on the menu. The server I had tonight was very friendly and knowledgeable about gluten free options and made meal delightful.

    Sushi: totally worth it. Fresh, delicious, yum. District wings: pass. Try the wings at Stan's instead. The Hamilton is overpriced, stuffy, I've had way better.

    Super solid food, even more impressive given that this is DC's largest restaurant. Loved the PB&J donuts and the fried chicken sandwich. Kisha was a great server, too.

    Get a mimosa at brunch and get an extra side of fries to share at the table because they're that good. Everything is nicely priced and incredibly delicious. Great for celebrating!

    One of the best places in DC to watch music. A big basement venue with pitchers of beer and quality bar food&pizza. Good for large groups.

    The Sushi is the best downtown. And the District wings are the best chicken wings and Mumbo Sauce that money can buy. No need to ask them to fry them hard. They're fried to perfection

    3pm to 6pm every day: half off sushi (sashimi, nigiri, rolls: anything on the right side of the sushi menu). Drinks not happy hour: ~$6 for a beer, $11 for a cocktail, $10 for wine.

    Any place where the bartender (eric tonight) shakes your hand and introduces himself before taking your order is awesome in my book. Old school feel, great food!
