D.C. is a city brimming with history, and its restaurants are no exception. To qualify for the following list of classics, restaurants had to open before 1970 and stand the test of time inside District lines.
Even more stalwarts can be found in the suburbs, including Quarry House, Tastee Diner, the Original Ledo Pizza, Woodside Delicatessen, Old Angler’s Inn, and Crisfield’s in Maryland. In Virginia there’s the Vienna Inn, 29 Diner, Bob & Edith’s Diner and L’Auberge Chez Francois. Get ready for the rebirth of downtown’s historic Waffle Shop, which developer Douglas Jemal is dismantling and reassembling in a new location.
