It's easy drop a lot of money on a meal in Washington, D.C. From uber-exclusive dining at six-seat Minibar to a 24-course tasting menu at Rogue 24, it's not uncommon for District tabs to run well into the triple digits.
And that's to be expected for fancy wining and dining. But sometimes, oddly expensive menu items are just head-scratchers. It turns out many restaurants also charge a pretty penny for regular dishes that can usually be found for much cheaper just about anywhere else. From sides and appetizers to beverages and desserts, here's a look at some of D.C.'s most curiously expensive dishes. And as for awkwardly-expensive items at D.C. diners? That's a whole different story.
