Hey, have you been wondering just where Gwyneth Paltrow likes to eat whenever she's in DC to hang out with a president or maybe pay a return visit to her buddy José Andrés? Obviously, you have. Fortunately, today's edition of Paltrow's newsletter GOOP provides a handy guide to our nation's capital from a Georgetown with "more cupcake shops than restaurants" to the "boom" of U Street and Penn Quarter. Here is a list of the bars and restaurants that made the cut.
Gwyneth Paltrow Approves of These Restaurants:
Ben's Chili Bowl
Central Michel Richard
Kaz Sushi Bistro
Rasika West End
The Tabard Inn
Off the Record
Paltrow also recommends having a drink at the Russia House if you happen to be in Dupont Circle, or maybe sandwiches at Georgetown's Booeymonger. So there you have it — a disappointingly good guide, actually. That is, if you're mainly sticking to Georgetown, Penn Quarter, Dupont Circle and U Street. Some have noted on Twitter that there are no Logan Circle spots on here. Estadio? Pearl Dive Oyster Palace? Sorry, no Paltrow endorsement for you guys. Better luck next time. Anyway, go read it.
