Most D.C. tourists find their way to Georgetown eventually. This historic neighborhood is a draw for its beautiful architecture and cobblestone streets, with plentiful shopping options.
Georgetown’s food scene is having a renaissance too, with new neighborhood arrivals from chef Michael Rafidi’s Levantine cafe Yellow, French brasserie L’Avant-Garde, and NYC’s dreamy cafe Maman. Two anticipated Japanese restaurants—Yume Sushi sibling Kyojin and Two Nine from two Sushi Taro alums—will pop in Georgetown this spring.
Restaurant magnate Stephen Starr will debut a “mega Italian” outpost on M Street this year with LA chef Nancy Silverton (Osteria Mozza). For now, Officina’s Georgetown market is the place to grab packaged pastas and other imported essentials. On the baked goods front, consider delightfully gooey cookies from NYC’s Levain, Parisian pastries from Boulangerie Christophe, and Call Your Mother’s beloved, President Joe Biden-approved bagels. For a luxe hotel meal, Georgetown is home to Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak in the Four Seasons and Wolfgang Puck’s Cut in the Rosewood. Georgetown’s sole Michelin-rated restaurant Reverie remains closed after suffering fire damage this summer. And French cafe Chez Billy Sud will resurface from a facelift this spring, but its wine bar is still open. Outdoor shipping container bar Sandlot plans to reopen for the season this month.
