Planning a weekend getaway to our nation’s capital? Here’s where to eat in DC from local budget bars to pricier historic establishments.
There are plenty of dining options in DC, but one thing I noticed as a broke grad student was this: in DC, good food comes with a price tag. So if you’re on a budget, you’re probably wondering where to eat in DC that won’t hurt your wallet too much. DC is not like NYC where delicious food can be found in a hole in the wall for a few bucks. As a grad student, I was careful about when and where I splurged so not all my recommendations are fine dining options.
