Washington DC Restaurants

Washington DC is a GREAT restaurant town.  DC has hundreds of outstanding restaurants serving excellent food of every kind.   At DC INNS, we know and love good food.  In fact, you could definitely call us foodies.

Not only do we love good food, but our family construction company, Raycon Incorporated, builds great restaurants.  In fact, we have built some of the trendiest new restaurants in the city, with a bunch more on the drawing boards!  And because we’re really crazy and love risk, we’ve even invested in a couple of the restaurants on this list.

This is really good news for you, our world-traveling, food-loving guests.  Just tell us what you want to eat and we will point you in the right direction.  Whether you are looking for a culinary experience at one of DC’s priciest spots, a table at one of the newest hot eateries, dinner with a live jazz accompaniment, or a casual meal at a convenient neighborhood cafe, we’ve got you covered!

The list below covers 50+ restaurants we think you will enjoy.  We have chosen restaurants that are located throughout the city, serve a variety of cuisines, and range from casual to formal.  We’ve included restaurants that are a great value, and some that are an “I don’t care what it costs” culinary experience.   We’ve also tried to identify those rare restaurants that are quiet enough to have a real conversation – and we’ve tried to tell you which ones are really, really noisy.  And wine lists?  We’ve tried to point you in the directions of some of DC’s best wine cellars.
