Visit Website
Plan Ahead: One of D.C.'s best restaurants is within walking distance of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (though it's a bit of a hike) — but reservations aren't easy to come by, so it's not a great fit for spontaneous diners. Solo eaters may be able to snag a spot at the bar to try the signature palak chat. Distance from CC: 0.6 miles.

26. Jaleo

Copy Link

Plan ahead: Jaleo's festive atmosphere and sharable menu of tapas make it a nice choice for groups — but it's busy enough that a large party may not be able to get in without a reservation, so call ahead to see if it's a fit. Distance from CC: 0.5 miles.

27. barmini by José Andrés
