El Sol is located at 1930 9th Street NW in what is known as Little Ethiopia, but the menu is Mexican-Salvadoran. The food has great reviews is has affordable prices.

Rice Restaurant, is located at 1608 14th Street NW. Always a favorite of ours. The menu is delicious with a variety of East and Southeast Asian choices… the food is beautifully presented with a very nice atmosphere. Make reservations if you are planning to go on a weekend.

Solly’s is located at 1942 11th Street NW, and it is a place to go and have a beer or three; your neighborhood bar… very laid-back atmosphere. Don’t count on getting any food there.
