DC is full of gems [gems, not germs. well, it's probably full of those too...], and my few days in our nation's capital left me fully satiated. Let's make our way, shall we?
Barracks Row). We wandered around too long to be able to enjoy their full menu, which stops being served at 10:30p, but settled on veggie tacos that I didn't regret in the least.

This GC, I assure you, was nothing but ordinary. Fresh, baked-on-site bread, full of texture and flavor, crispy and exuding the essence of garlicky awesomeness, covered with creamy local cheese, tomatoes, and alongside a salad of greens and eggplant. Umm...yeah.
mezze-style restaurant/bar was not at all what we were expecting when some friends recommended it (I was looking for a hole-in-the-wall, but instead found a huge and modern building in downtown DC). Fresh pita bread (unlimited, warm, perfect), creamy labneh, salty summer squash saganaki, warm "ímam bayildi" and "mercimek köftesi" [we didn't even attempt pronouncing the latter two] covered our table and filled our stomachs. No complaints here at all.
But... of course (!) my favorite food stop on the whole trip was actually in New Jersey, at none other than Ralph's. It just can't be rivaled. Sorry.
If you make your way to D.C. any time soon, your food options won't be limited, I assure you.
Best of luck, and enjoy! Food! Yay!
