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 Maydan, Brothers and Sisters, Elle, Kith and Kin, Momo Yakitori, and Taqueria Habanero. To make room, it’s time to say goodbye to Compass Rose, The Royal, Maketto, Ray’s the Steaks, Casolare, and Via Umbria.
