This taqueria has two locations serving some of the area's better tacos, with some less typical fillings like lengua, barbacoa de chivo, chorizo, and chicharron.

This Caribbean and soul food restaurant, recently got a makeover that added room and makes it more welcoming. What hasn't changed are the large, inexpensive portions or tasty food, like the excellent curried chicken.

Andrene's "doesn't inspire confidence" because "the counter is protected by thick bulletproof glass" but "Andrene Finn's spacious kitchen behind the glass works hard to turn out satisfying Caribbean and soul food." See Full Review…»

Carolina Gomez and Jason Story, the husband and wife team behind this Petworth butchery, met while studying at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. Although they were recently forced to change the name, they still offer the same excellent house made charcuterie and salumi. There's also a limited roster of sandwiches available for carryout at lunch.

There are also delicious cocktails and frequent special events, like Chantal Tseng's literary cocktail series on Friday and Saturday nights.

"… Makoto Hamamura is the guy in charge of the short menu, and Kristi Green is responsible for what leaves the bar. On paper, those résumé details whet my appetite. The chef worked as a sous-chef at the four-star CityZen in the Mandarin Oriental for six years, and the drinks maker comes from the cheery Firefly in Dupont Circle. Named for a community newspaper published during World War I, Petworth Citizen was created to serve bar food with some twists. …" See Full Review…»
