Floriana Mercury Grill is located at 1602 17th Street NW. It has one of the best reputations in town… as a wonderful Italian restaurant with consistent service and great prices.
Logan Tavern is located at 1423 P Street NW and is one of the pioneering restaurants in the revival of the 14th Street corridor. Always a good bet for a pleasant meal, with a diverse menu.
HR-57 is located at 1610 14th Street NW. A favorite of mine, it is not really a place to eat, but a wonderful place to fill the spirit with great live jazz music. You can bring your own liquor or allow them to serve you. There are some finger foods available.
