No Dinner Plans? Here’s Where to Eat Tonight Near Your NE DC Apartment
Tex-Mex fare. Asian fusion. Upscale Italian cuisine. They’re all available within a 10-minute drive from your doorstep—which actually might make it harder to choose a spot for dinner. But that’s a good problem to have, especially if you’re looking for somewhere special to go out to eat for the first time in a while.
Republica Cantina boasts a glowing reputation for its American-inspired Mexican dishes, like the super-popular brisket enchiladas. Nearby at O-Ku, the chefs focus on modern Asian flavors. They create specialty sushi rolls, small plates, and entrees that will both delight and surprise your taste buds. However, if you’re craving a plate of freshly crafted pasta and an artisan cocktail, look no further than The Red Hen. Its contemporary take on classic Italian cuisine earns rave reviews from D.C. foodies.
