Directly across from the Verizon Center, Rosa Mexicano has been serving classic Mexican cuisine for over 20 years. Try the famous guacamole, prepared tableside, & sip a frozen pomegranate margarita while enjoying the festive, stylish and comfortable ambiance.

"Lovely lunch at Rosa Mexicano with visiting friends. Everyone was very pleased with their choices and they were reminded once again why we meet at this restaurant when everyone is in town. Delicious!"

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"Zaytinya has long been on our "go to" list when we are entertaining friends from out of town. On this visit, it took longer to find things on the menu that were interesting although many of the items have not changed. A couple of the dishes were just average which was disappointing. We will return, but meanwhile we will probably visit Jaleo more frequently since that menu is one where we have trouble narrowing down our choices to a reasonable number."

"Whenever you have guests visiting from other parts of the country, don't miss the chance to treat them to the Saturday dim sum at The Source. The food is beyond wonderful (loved the new short rib won tons) and if you are fortunate enough to sit in Jorge's space, you won't forget the fabulous service anytime soon. The staff is always welcoming, and with Jorge guiding you through the menu, you can't hit a wrong note (or bite)."

Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.

"Lovely dinner at Jaleo with our visitors from St. Louis. Their first meal at Jaleo, and it did not fail to impress. Starting with the wonderful liquid olives and continuing through multiple shared plates, each bite was delicious! Thanks, Jose Andres!"

"Lovely weekend lunch at Rosa Mexicano. The fish tacos are truly delightful as was the combo plate of three different enchiladas that allowed someone to get their enchilada fix. Guillermo's service was lovely and the surprise dessert was a very nice touch - thank you!"

"Wonderful meal at Jaleo and for once, it wasn't totally slammed, so it was reasonably quiet. Jorge took such wonderful care of us, as always! From the moment we said hello and wished each other a Happy New Year, his impeccable service began. Each dish was perfect and once again we enjoy that even a dish we might have had before is presented in a slightly different way, or a new ingredient has been added. Loved the octopus with clementines (who knew that would work) and the creamy rice topped with perfectly cooked mushrooms will always be a favorite. Thanks, Jorge, for a great meal!"

"We can never say enough good things about Matyson. Although we don't make it to Philadelphia as often as we might like, we have never had anything less than an outstanding meal here. We couldn't stop ordering the fish on this trip - we tried each one on the menu over the three meals we enjoyed and none of them were less than superlative. Can't wait for our next trip to Philly!! And Tracy, thanks for the special treat!!!!!"

"While we didn't realize we had signed up for a fixed-price brunch, it was a lovely experience. We both enjoyed omelets made to order at the omelet station along with some side dishes. An a la carte menu would have been a plus since we also had dinner reservations on our agenda for that evening. The service provided by Craig was excellent!!"

For years, owners Nat Ongsangkoon & Dia Khanthongthip have dreamed of bringing Thai market foods to DC, and are excited about the canvas Soi 38 presents. As natives of Bangkok, Thailand, they grew up relishing trips to the night market for some of the best food in Thailand, and are excited to bring this collection of street foods to Washington, DC.<br /><br />Inspired by the underground eateries around Bangkok’s night markets, Soi 38 features creative Thai street foods, hearty Thai favorites and a bar program featuring draft and bottled cocktails to DC’s West End neighborhood.<br /><br />The name Soi 38 is based on the iconic street food district and night market of the same name in Bangkok. As evening falls in Thailand, the Soi 38 night market transforms into a high energy, open-air food market crowded with stalls and rickety furniture where vendors dish out authentic Thai food favorites until the early-morning hours.

"Our first visit after seeing Soi 38 mentioned in the "new restaurants for 2014 in the Post". Excellent lunch of Sriracha fried rice with chicken and a lovely crispy duck dish. Also enjoyed our appetizers. Definitely on the "return for another visit soon" list!"

"Jane G's was new to us since we evidently haven't walked that specific area on any of our Philly visits since they opened. It was very quiet, but on a Saturday afternoon just before Christmas, that wasn't a surprise. The food is lovely and beautifully prepared. We enjoyed the won ton soup and then shared Kung Pao Chicken, steamed edamame and spring rolls. A perfect holiday lunch!"
