- Zenebech Injera608 T Street Northwest, Washington, DCrecommended Zenebech InjeraIn my opinion this is DC's best Ethiopian restaurant. It doesn't look like much, and it only has a couple tables for seating, but the food is awesome.Daniel Mason-D'Croz

- Leopold's Kafe + Konditorei3315 M St Nw, Washington, DC 20007recommended Leopold's Kafe + KonditoreiKafe Leopold is hidden down Cady's Alley in Georgetown, and thank god it's tucked away or it would be swamped most of the time. It's a European Cafe that serves a lot of pastries I have only had in ... read moreHungary, and their coffee is phenomenal. If you can score a seat outside on warm summer night, it's the perfect place for a date or even a small get-together. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the prices are European too - don't expect a cheap slice of Dobos torte.
- Masa 141825 14th Street, NW Washington, DC 20009recommended Masa 14Despite Masa 14 being incredibly crowded when I went, I loved all the dishes we tried. Masa serves small plates, and 5-6 dishes is enough for 3 people. The meatballs were delicious, as were the yucca ... read morefries, sweet and sour pork and asian salad. The one item I wasn't too fond of was the melon and prosciutto flatbread, but it certainly wasn't bad. They have a great selection of cocktails as well - try the Lemon Lager!
- Room 113234 11th Street Northwest, Washington, DCrecommended Room 11This is one of my new favorite DC restaurants. My best friend took me here after saying it would remind us of our Paris days, and she was totally right. The inside of the restaurant is small (try to ... read moreavoid rush hour), but there is plenty of space on their outside patio, set up like a traditional Parisian sidewalk cafe. The food is on the expensive side, yes, but well worth every penny. We had the most delicious salt cod croquettes, and the lamb kebabs were unbelievable. I was literally scraping at the plate to lap up every bit of yogurt sauce. The shared plates are perfect for two people, and we tried the mushroom risotto, which was one of the best risottos I've ever eaten. Perfectly creamy, and we were fighting over the last few bites. The drink menu is pretty extensive - definitely go for the cocktails, which rotate on a regular basis. I had a gin cocktail which I can't remember the name of...maybe because I ended up ordering another one?
