  • Union Station

    Union Station

    50 Massachusetts Ave NE
    Not just a train station or metro stop, the grandiose 1908 Beaux Arts building by legendary American architect Daniel Burnham makes it worth a look—the ceremonial entrance is stunning. Open long after the museums close, it contains shops, restaurants and a cinema. A large monument to Christopher Columbus stands outside the building.

  • B Smith's

    B Smith's

    50 Massachusetts Ave NE
    M-Th 11:30AM-10PM, F-Sa 11:30AM-11PM, Su 11AM-9PM. $25-60. Some of D.C.'s best upscale soul food and Creole cuisine is served here, in a beautiful, dining room, which was once the presidential waiting room at the station. B. Smith's is rather famous with visiting celebrities, as well as national politicians. They'll probably get a private room, but you might nonetheless see some famous fellow diners. Best for brunch/lunch.

  • Ethiopic Restaurant

    401 H St NE
    Tu-Th 5PM-10PM, F-Su noon-10PM. $14-22. While too far west to be considered part of the H St scene (it's closer to Union Station), this trendy restaurant was almost immediately hailed as D.C.'s best Ethiopian cooking on virtually all fronts. That's enormous praise in this city that is home to the second largest Ethiopian population in the world after Addis Ababa. If you are OK with raw meat, the raw kitfo is a standout entrée, especially with a little extra spicy red powder on the side. The location makes it a little hard to get to and from without a car—especially from, as it's hard to hail a taxi. The walk to Union Station isn't too far, but can be creepy in the quiet of the night.

  • Charlie Palmer's Steakhouse

    Charlie Palmer's Steakhouse

    101 Constitution Ave NW
    Lunch: M-F 11:30AM-2:30PM; dinner: M-F 5:30PM-10PM, Sa 5PM-10:30PM. $35-85. Charlie Palmer is a national celebrity chef, and his steakhouse vies with two others for the title of the city's favorite steak (and those Republicans like their steak). On the scale of the three, it sits comfortably between trendy and traditional. And of course, it sits somewhere the other steakhouses do not—literally right across the street from the Capitol Building. The views are fantastic. Don't worry if you don't like steak, as this is an all-around outstanding restaurant, with a variety of excellent American dishes.
