Guide To Washington
Washington D.C. is a diverse area, and its restaurants reflect this diversity. Want to eat Ethopian? Moroccan? Japanese? Cajun? D.C. has excellent choices in almost any category you can think of.

Adams Morgan is one of the premiere areas for dining in D.C. It has dozens of foreign-food restaurants, such as Ethiopian, Indian, and Mexican, and several places serving old-fashion burgers and fries. It is difficult to go wrong with choosing a restaurant in this area.

If you love Ethiopian food or have ever been curious to try it, Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant ( 2434 18th St. N.W. ) is an excellent bet. Ethiopian food is traditionally served on "ingera," a thin, spongy bread that you tear up and use as a utensil to eat your food. At Meskerem, you can sit cross-legged on the floor or eat at a conventional table. Food is served together on 1 or 2 plates and is meant to be shared, enhancing the communal experience that characterizes Ethiopian dining.

Swanky and stylish, Felix Restaurant ( 2406 18th St NW ) is a unique, split-level club and restaurant. The design inside is inspired by James Bond and reeks of cool. Felix has a Kosher-style menu, a wide selection of martinis, scrumptious crab cakes, and live music at night. Casual wear is fine, but you won't feel out of place dressing up.

A great place for after-dinner coffee or drinks is Tryst Coffeehouse and Bar ( 2459 18th St ). NW. The hip and welcoming hangout is best summarized by its motto: " No corporate coffee, no matching silverware." Tryst serves liquor, wine and beers as well as a nice selection of coffee and snacks.

About driving to Adams Morgan: don't. Parking is difficult to find. Take the Metro (Adams Morgan, red line) or, better yet, rent a hotel in the area. A few hotels to check into: Marriott Wardman Park and Windsor Park Hotel.

A short distance from the Gallery Place Metro stop (red, yellow, green lines), Chinatown offers fine Asian cuisine and some restaurants atypical of what one would expect.

One of the best restaurants in the area is Burma Restaurant ( 740 Sixth St. NW ) . Located on the second floor above a video shop and modestly designed, Burma Restaurant's d├ęcor may not impress you, but its selection of exotic salads and spiced pork will.

Some of their dishes are sub-par, so if the owner is around, ask him for a recommendation. But don't let that scare you away. Even with that caveat, Burma Restaurant ranks highly in most restaurant guides and its prices are extremely reasonable.

If you are looking for pizza, Matchbox ( 713 H St. NW ) is a good bet. You'll see where the restaurant gets its name once you set down. Matchboxes from around the world are inset in the tables. You can design your own pizza from a selection of two dozen toppings or pick one of the recommended combinations from the menu. The brick oven delivers a thin, crisp crust with a slight char for flavor. Nothing too fancy, although along with beer and soda you can order a glass of wine with your meal.

If you want to stay in Chinatown , the Red Roof Inn - Downtown is one of the hotels in the area. A little further from Chinatown , but still downtown, are the Lincoln Suites - Downtown, and Marriott At Metro Center.

Bordering the Potomac River , Georgetown draws in travelers looking for history, shopping, and dining. In particular, M Street is home to many of Georgetown 's shops and restaurants.

The closest Metro stop is Foggy Bottom/GMU (orange, blue lines). To reach M street, go north for a few blocks from the Metro stop and then make a left to M Street.

Vegetarians will find comfort in the South Indian food served by Amma Vegetarian Kitchen ( 3291-A M St. NW). The quality of food for the cheap prices can't be beat.

Interested in French food? Oui? You can find several quality French restaurants in Georgetown , like Bistro Francais ( 3128 M St. NW) . The restaurant serves a mix of seafood, rich sauces, and other staples of French cuisine. Also, it is open until 3:00 A.M. on weekdays, 4:00 A.M. on weekends, late hours for D.C.

If you are in the mood for Americana , then stop by Clyde 's of Georgetown ( 3236 M St. NW) , which serves its award-winning chili as well as juicy burgers to its hungry customers.

Interested in setting camp in Georgetown ? A few of the hotels you can find here are the Latham Hotel, The Four Seasons, and Hotel Monticello of Georgetown .

What is appealing about the restaurants in Dupont Circle (red line) is the variety of cuisines for all price ranges. Within a few blocks of each other, you can generous portions of Italian food at Bucca di Beppo (moderate prices), a juicy steak at Ruth's Chris (expensive) Steak House, and what some call the best sushi in D.C. at Sushi Taro (moderate). You can find these restaurants a few blocks north of the Dupont Metro station (north entrance).

Bacchus Restaurant ( 1827 Jefferson Pl. NW ) offers wonderful Lebanese cooking and a 50-some item appetizer list that includes favorites such as m'saka, a caramelized onion and eggplant appetizer rich and full of flavor, and aged cheeses tossed with sumac, tomatoes and paprika.

Finally, if you're looking for a filling meal without spending much, the chain restaurant Chipotle ( 1629 Connecticut Ave. NW ) serves humongous burritos and other Mexican food.

Looking for a hotel in Dupont? You have many choices, such as the Hilton Washington, Windsor Park Hotel, Jurys Normandy Inn, and Courtyard by Marriott Northwest. All these hotels are a short walk from the Metro station and the restaurants in Dupont Circle .
