At the Visitors Center, catch a few short films about Congress, visit the Exhibition Hall with an audio tour on your cell phone, and sign up for a tour of the Capitol building. If you request visitors passes from the offices of a Representative or Senator, it's fascinating to watch debate in the House or Senate chambers.

    On Saturday night, my husband and I went out to dinner with one of his work friends and a group of her friends. The food was fantastic! Since there were six of us, we were able to order lots of dishes. My favorites were the Baba Ghannouge (not usually something I like), the Turkish Style Pastirma, the Kibbeh, and the ...

    Jose Andres' Jaleo serves up tasty Spanish tapas and sangria. Casual chic at standard DC prices. Solid service that satisfies a wife range of parties, from small to large, young to old, business to trendsetters and families.

    Ted's Bulletin

    0.9 mi from U.S. Capitol Building
    11 reviews

    Ted's Bulletin is a fun place to grab a burger and a homemade pop-tart. We've been twice and while we've enjoyed ourselves each time - especially the 'adult' shakes - we always leave wanting more for what we paid for. A fun place for a date but not on our list of the best in DC.

    Burgers are really good! I didn't like the fries that much. However, they have a selection of flavored mayo, and they are all very tasty. Try them all'

    Nando's Peri-Peri Restaurants

    1.0 mi from U.S. Capitol Building

    Half of the Portuguese chicken's magic lays in it's delicious spicy sauce and the other half lays in the tenderness and juiciness of the chicken. Nandos' got the first part right - the sauce is of a thick and creamy consistency, delicious variety of seasoning and spices all got their fair place, and the extra hot certainly did not disappoint. ...

    Their pitchers of sangria are delicious. Half off pitchers on Thursdays when I used to go made it a great place for happy hour. Even when we only meant to stay for a few drinks, we would always end up eating a full meal and closing the place at the end of the night. The chicken croquettes and the Spanish ...

    Jose Andres' Oyamel serves up small plates of Mexican deliciousness. Not Tex-Mex. from tortilla styled tacos to cactus salads and ceviche, washed down with margaritas with a flare, this place is big on bold, fresh ingredients served with a twist and a flare. Ambiance is vibrant, bright colors explode with mobiles of butterflies. A ceviche bar as well as a ...

    Rosa Mexicano - DC

    0.84 mi from U.S. Capitol Building

    Dinner was great. We shared the guacamole and had drinks to start - enjoyed the white wine Rosa sangria. I had the shrimp brochettes for dinner and the shrimp were so plump and delicious. A friend had the red snapper, which I might order next time, and the mixed grill, which looked perfect for a meat lover. For dessert I ...

    We the Pizza

    The pizza is good. I highly recommend ordering a whole pie as opposed to a slice. Then you will get a fresh-made pizza, and it is much better that way, even if you have to wait.

    Chop't has definitely won me over in the salad war with Sweet Green - especially the Dupont Circle Chop't. I have been to 3 different SGs, and on multiple occasions, I've been disappointed with the service and product. Chop't does not disappoint with a wider selection and more salad for your money. If you're on the north side of Dupont ...

    Very good Puerto Rican and Cuban food. It is a great place to go to when it is warm outside as the outdoor seating provides for great people watching.

    My boyfriend got the Living Social deal so we finally made it to this place that we pass by all the time. We decided to stick with small plates because we like to try as many dishes as possible. We got: the ceviche tasting with snapper and shrimp ceviche, Angry Zengo rolls, the pork arepas, peking duck tacos, and the ...

    Fado Irish Pub

    0.99 mi from U.S. Capitol Building

    Great Irish pub, not kitschy just good Irish food and cider. They have Magners/Bulmers and that should be all people who love Irish pubs need to know. Rashers are crispy, sausages are plump, the brown bread is buttered. It is also a good place to watch matches once rugby season starts. There is a great mix of people who show ...

    Naturally I have to write a review for a fellow Top Chef alum. Mike Isabella’s Graffiato brings some Jersey Italian swag to the table at this new restaurant. The Sweet Corn Agnolotti is out of this world. My tip: get there early to order the secret, off-the-menu dessert, Zeppoles dusted with strawberry powered sugar. They only made a handful each ...

    Poste Moderne Brasserie

    0.88 mi from U.S. Capitol Building

    Poste has one of the best hotel restaurants in D.C. The food isn't over the type fancy, but is always innovate, good, and will leave you wanting more. I am a huge fan of their truffle fries. The location is inside Hotel Monaco in the busy and vibrant Penn Quarter.

    Great sports bar a few blocks from the Capitol Building and Union Station. A ton of televisions throughout the bar, and a very nice covered patio with large screen television. Good pub food, and super friendly staff. It is a great place to get together to watch the game.
