It's time to update the Eater 38, the answer to the age-old question about the best dining D.C. has to offer. This elite group covers the entire city and surrounding areas, spans myriad cuisines and budgets, and collectively satisfies nearly all restaurant needs — except for those occasions that typically mandate forking over half a paycheck. The list is fine-tuned every few months to accommodate outstanding newcomers (restaurants must be open at least six months to qualify) and/or returning favorites (which must have made major improvements).
This time around, additions include China Chilcano (for sharing the magic of chifa-style dining with the District), Proof (terrific wines, amazing food, and now brunch), and Range. To make room, it's time to say goodbye (for now) to Barrel + Crow, Jaleo, and The Partisan. The list has been arranged by neighborhood for easier mobile searching.
