Top Three of the Best DC Restaurants
Brimming with international flavors thanks to its ethnically diverse population, the capital city of the United States has been offering food lovers an exceptional selection of gastronomical delights for years. Among the many well-known dining establishments in the area, The Inn at Little Washington, Founding Farmers, and L’Auberge Chez Francois, stand out among the rest.
The Inn at Little Washington boasts a reputation for giving its customers not only an unforgettable traveling experience with its quality accommodation, but also a taste of the heavens with its delectable selection of cuisines. Culinary master Patrick O’Connell serves The Inn’s diners only the best in Classical French Cuisine, and guests can indulge their taste buds in a wondrously fantastical romantic setting designed for the stars. Diners of this restaurant can choose from a myriad of dining choices which include dishes such as the Chilled Maine Lobster served with Winter Vegetables and Clementine Sorbet, as well as the Curry Dusted Veal Sweetbreads laced with Homemade Apple Sauce, and served with Virginia Country Ham and Pappardelle Pasta.
Much different from The Inn, the Founding Farmers serves its customers only the best in wholesome All-American cuisine. True to its name, the restaurant pays tribute to the hard work of American farming families, from which it receives its supply of only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Coupled with the talents and skills of its kitchen staff and a comfortable and friendly environment, it is little wonder that this establishment is one of Washington’s favorites. Food lovers can indulge in a myriad of dishes such as those from their Signature line-up, which includes the Yankee Pot Roast and Skirt Steak and Enchilada, among others.
Since its opening in the mid fifties, the family owned L’Auberge Chez Francois has long captured the hearts of the locals of DC with not only its delicious French delights, but also with their warm and hospitable service. Its head chef, Jacques Haeringer continues the tradition his father began by serving only the best in French cuisine, such as the Pinot Noir Braised Ribs and Vegetable Puree, and the Matelote of Salmon served with an exquisite White Lobster Sauce. For an exceptional lunch dining experience, diners can treat their taste buds with the fresh filet of Norwegian salmon served with mushrooms, béarnaise sauce and vegetables, as well as the grilled lamb chops garnished with herbs de Provence, tarragon sauce and vegetable medley.
Food lovers local and abroad will certainly indulge their taste buds with the delectable selections offered by these three prestigious dining establishments in the Washington area.
