D.C. eats: The best of 2008

The restaurant scene in Washington, D.C. is thriving.

The Washington, D.C., restaurant scene is thriving despite troubled economic times, said Tom Sietsema in The Washington Post. As a new administration prepares to take office, here are three top choices from our annual roundup of the best places to eat around the nation’s capital.

Komi “One of the finest places to eat in the country.” The extraordinary wine list, “one bite wonder” appetizers, and prix fixe menu are signs of “a superior restaurant.” 1509 17th St. NW, (202) 332-9200

The Inn at Little Washington “The most famous inn in the country.” Four-course dinner options include cod swaddled in pork belly or, if you’re a vegetarian, a beet “fantasia.” Middle and Main Sts., Washington, Va., (540) 675-3800

Restaurant Eve’s Tasting Room “Not the most glamorous place” for a five-course meal. But you won’t forget the Randall Lineback beef fillet or the “dewy sea bream carpaccio.” 110 S. Pitt St., Alexandria, Va., (703) 706-0450
