Blue Duck Tavern
Price: Expensive

The Blue Duck Tavern continues to be heaped with accolades. The open kitchen with wood-burning oven is surrounded by simple Americana décor like wooden Shaker furniture and quilts hanging from the wall. The real star, however, is the food. Artfully presented, traditional American fare includes everything from oysters and crab cakes to pheasant and braised beef rib, and the menu identifies where the main ingredient is sourced.

Price: Expensive

With a mid-Atlantic menu featuring seasonal and regionally inspired meals using organic ingredients grown within 160km (100 miles) of the restaurant, Equinox’s proximity to the White House attracts an esteemed clientele, including the Obamas. The creative American food includes line-caught swordfish steak with sweet Maine shrimp. Dine in the buzzing atrium, right on the street, or in the quieter main dining room.

Price: Expensive

In a dining room hung with vintage quilts, diners will find some of Washington, DC’s most creative dishes. And somehow restaurateur Nora Pouillon does it while making sure that everything is organic. The menu changes daily but you can’t go wrong with the miso soup or any of the seafood main courses.

The Jockey Club
Price: Expensive

Rub shoulders with politicians and Hollywood royalty in a restaurant which has been an important part of the Washington, DC scene for much of the time since opening in 1961. Closed for several year, the revamped restaurant reflects its original style but with a modern slant. The menu still serves Jockey Club classics such as Dover Sole Meuniere but also serves innovative herb and marspone ravioli.
Address: 2100 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington DC, United States of America, United States

Price: Expensive

Named after a type of onion so sweet it can be eaten like an apple, award-winning Vidalia makes sure that this unique vegetable figures prominently on the menu. The kitchen specialises in Southern fare, so diners should not miss out on favourites such as crab cakes and their famous shrimp and grits. There is complimentary wine tasting every Tuesday from 1730-1830.
Address: 1990 M Street, NW, Washington DC, United States of America, United States

Price: Moderate

The Mediterranean cuisine at Zaytinya excels. Tuck into the mouth-watering mezze, small plates of seafood, meat or vegetables. Save room for Turkish delight, a walnut ice cream creation with, among other things, caramelised pine nuts. The décor is simple with huge windows and white walls. Zaytinya only takes limited reservations so take a chance and join the hustle and bustle at the bar with others waiting for a table.
Address: 701 Ninth Street, NW, Washington DC, United States of America, United States

Mr Smith’s of Georgetown
Price: Moderate

A Georgetown institution, with its antique mirrors, lamps and piano bar, for over 40 years, regulars come here for the hearty home cooking from burgers to chili and fish and chips. The hidden garden buzzes with the sound of conversation and is open all year, heated by fireplaces and an electronic roof covering in winter.
