Located on bustling Washington Circle in the West End, District Commons is anchored by a monumental raw bar and an open hearth oven for flatbreads and savory tarts. A 'Pig Board' of ham and biscuits will showcase a selection of America's finest hams. Chef/Owner Jeff Tunks serves up classic American cuisine in this gorgeous setting. Chili Glazed Duck, Brick Pressed Chicken, Classic Hanger Steak - these choices and more! Freshly baked breads and desserts round out your meal. Try one of our regional American drafts or exquisite wines, or sample from the 99 Beers on the Wall!

"I picked the restaurant by geography because we were going to the Kennedy Center. The server took note of the fact that it was my wife's birthday and treated her like a queen. He was a helpful guide to the menu, and his recommendations were enjoyed by the whole party. He kept an eye on the clock and knew what time our curtain was. Just terrific. The menu is fun, and thorough...whatever kind of mood you're in when you hit the front door you'll find a selection that makes sense. Our party's entrees included a delicious duck breast, scallops, and shrimp and grits. All were well prepared, delicious. The Boston Cream Pie was out of this world. (and yes...we made our curtain) We'll come again."

"We tried Cafe of India several times when it first opened a few years ago, and it wasn't very good. During a week without a car it was a handy, walkable option so I figured I'd give it another try. The pakoras were crisp and well-seasoned. Our main courses were terrific, and the portions very generous. The daal makhani was first rate. The naan was terrific. Overall a first-rate experience, and very affordable. Like a whole different restaurant! It's definitely back on the list of neighborhood go-to places."
