G. Garvin’s Washington D.C. Travel Tips

Every American should visit the nation’s capital. Obviously there is a great deal of history here and incredible monuments. The food scene is going strong as well. The next time you get the chance to visit D.C., make sure you’re not just seeing the historic landmarks but also going to different parts of the city to get the full experience. H Street is filled with new, hot restaurants.

Sixth Engine (pictured above)
I love this place. It’s set in an old firehouse and you can really feel it with the decor and old paintings on the brick walls. Chef Paul Madrid makes a great no-nonsense grilled shrimp dish and his black-eyed peas are super flavorful. I had an amazing time cooking for the firemen.

Birch & Barley
Birch & Barley is the perfect date spot. It has a nice atmosphere, an awesome beer selection and a wonderfully diverse menu. The desserts are especially spectacular — Chef Tiffany MacIsaac is doing such unique takes on old classics that you’ll never skip dessert at Birch & Barley.

Boundary Road
The Obamas have eaten at Boundary Road and I could see why. It’s filled with class and character and the food is reminiscent of true Southern cooking. Chef Brad is doing his own thing here and it’s definitely playing a part in reviving H Street.

minibar
In Penn Quarter, minibar is the brainchild of Chef Jose Andres. He’s also an artist so you can see his creativity come to life here. It’s an intimate setting with a crazy tasting menu, perfect for a date with your special someone. There’s care and attention brought to every bite of what you’re eating.

Ben’s Chili Bowl
Ben’s Chili Bowl isn’t just a great chili spot — it’s an institution. It’s set on historic U Street where famous musicians like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington frequented. It’s also a popular place for presidents. “The Bowl” is a great D.C. landmark and hot spot.

Fast Gourmet
It may be strange to stop by a gas station for lunch, but D.C. locals flock here for the sandwiches. Instead of a typical deli sandwich, you’ll find yellowfin tuna steak on organic bread, paired with a fresh juice. Fast Gourmet’s run by a 300-pound tattooed chef by the name of Nacho who’s studied in France and Italy.

Get the addresses of G’s favorite D.C. spots.
