According to the National Restaurant Association, gay Washington DC has a higher ratio than NYC of restaurants to population, at 332 restaurants per 100,000 people! Now, that’s a lot of choice! But don’t worry, we’ll make it easy for you. Here’s misterb&b’s selection of our favorite places to dine in and nearby DC’s gay neighborhood, Dupont Circle.
For a classic American meal in the capital city, try out Luna Bar and Grill. The establishment cooks one of the meanest burgers in the city! Likewise, legendary steaks can always be found at Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse, as well as delicious late-night bites. The establishment is a true Dupont Circle institution.
Get a taste of New England at Hank’s Oyster Bar, with some incredible lobster rolls and fried clams. This swanky restaurant is always packed, so reservations are recommended.
