Even though DC is somewhat insulated from the current economic crisis, it’s always a good time to think about getting a great bargain. That’s why we’ve come up with the following list of places in DC to get an amazing dish at an affordable price.
Bar Pilar – This hipster hang-out is known for it’s fantastic dinner menu, particularly its generous array of small plates.
Ben’s Chili Bowl – A DC staple, Ben’s Chili Bowl has hosted some of the most recognizable individuals in the area and abroad. Just make sure you don’t mind smelling like fried food after you eat there.
Pho 75 – The only decoration in the Arlington pho house is a wall full of awards and accolades for the delicious, steaming hot bowls of pho the restaurant serves. Lines have been known to extend out the door especially on weekend afternoons.
Palena (Cafe Menu) – Palena is one of the top fine dining restaurants in the DC area. While its restaurant menu is a bit pricey for the budget-conscious individual, its cafe menu certainly qualifies as fiscally responsible.
Pasta Mia – I sometimes find myself wondering whether Pasta Mia has an actual restaurant license or is just some Italian person in a house in Adams Morgan cooking authentically delicious cheap Italian dishes. Then I realize I don’t care and stuff my face.
