With Washington's D.C. fall launch of new distilleries, a destination casino, and plenty of neighborhood restaurants, it's hard to pick which is tempting taste buds the most.

One of the first up is Sweet Home Cafe inside the National Museum of African American History & Culture, with Carla Hall consulting on the menu. And while super pricey ($185 per person), The Shaw Bijou's ambitious, tasting menu-centric restaurant is getting lots of buzz, especially since Kwame Onwuachi (an Eleven Madison Park alumnus) was featured on the most recent season of 'Top Chef.'

Meanwhile, MGM Casino National Harbor is making a smart gamble on opening up a star-studded lineup of restaurants from Jose Andres, Marcus Samuelsson, and Bryan Voltaggio.

These are just a few of the projects coming to Washington this fall.

Here's Eater's comprehensive guide to all of the restaurant options coming to the city this season. Which one is most exciting? Vote in the poll below, or share other picks in the comments section.
