Restaurants in District of Columbia

The cuisines of the world are at your credit card’s call in Washington, DC, but when looking for a taste that is unique to the capital, there’s only one dish to consider: the half-smoke, which is a smoky link sausage frequently served with a chili topping, but also found on breakfast plates in lieu of bacon or ordinary sausage. DC’s other compelling culinary draw is a result of its burgeoning African-American population: Soul food restaurants here are some of the best in the country.
