The venerable Old Angler's Inn may be the oldest continuously operating restaurant in DC. It had fallen completely off the radar in recent years until chef Nick Palermo breathed new life into the place. Palermo is now gone, but for now Old Angler's soldiers on.

"The oldest continually operating restaurant in the Washington, DC area, open in the same place since 1860, the loss of Chef Nick Palermo is possibly devastating." See 11/13/2013 Review…»

For a long while, this was one of the few places to get a decent bagel in the area. The offerings here probably won't impress a New Yorker, and the sandwiches tend to be a bit skimpy, but this is still one of the better places to go for a bagel and schmear.

BGR has expanded nationally, but it all started here in DC. The burgers are big, juicy, and cooked to order -- basically everything you could want in a burger joint.

This outdated review notes "prime, aged, hormone-free" beef "on a toasted sesame-seeded brioche bun," fries "made with Yukon Gold potatoes" and "shakes are so thick, they’re easier to eat with a spoon than a straw." See Full Review…»

Unrated (6/1/2014) — Cheap Eats 2014
"Beef Wellington—that pastry-wrapped staple of ’50s dinner parties—is the inspiration for this rock ’n’ roll burger chain’s behemoth ($8.99). The dry-aged patty is grilled, then laden with sautéed mushrooms and onions, plus loads of blue cheese. It’s probably the most elegant thing you’ll ever eat while surrounded by Journey album covers." See Full Review…»

"No longer under the original management, but if you stick with the basic hamburger, it's cooked to the specified temperature, and is surprisingly delicious." See 12/9/2015 Review…»
