For an epicurean adventure head to Adams Morgan, a neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C that is filled with all kinds of eclectic eats. Restaurants and offerings include Southern Hospitality, Awash (an Ethiopian restaurant), Himalayan Heritage, and Amsterdam Falafel Shop. Late night giant pizza slices on weekends in Adams Morgan are also a filling meal to try.

Besides the countless monuments, statues, and historical sites, another great place to enjoy history whilst in the city is the Occidental. The restaurant offers an opportunity to dine with former presidents, ambassadors, and and spymasters including Theodore Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, John Scali, and Alexander Fomin, among others thanks to the hundreds of historic photographs of past diners that completely cover the walls. Additionally, the restaurant offers excellent seafood and steaks. Be sure to try the Delmarva (a portmanteau of the states Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) oysters.

Georgia Brown’s, which opened in 1993, offers home-style Southern “Low Country” cuisine. Start off with the warm cornbread sticks and end with the rich red velvet cake. Although many Washingtonians don’t consider the city to be part of the American South, the dishes at Georgia Brown’s make a strong case for that to be the case.
