12 "Lunch" restaurants in Washington DC.
Part trendy clothing store, part Cambodian/Thai restaurant, Maketto might just be the coolest spot in DC right now.
Another Jose Andres spot with solid tapas. Head to Zaytinya for a power lunch that doesn't feel like a power lunch.
Timber is a casual pizza spot in Shaw that's great for a low-key dinner or a group-hang outside.
Smoked & Stacked is a sandwich shop in Shaw that will meet (and exceed) all your greasy pastrami needs.
A casual spot by day, and a proper restaurant by night, hit The Partisan if you really enjoy meat.
There are plenty of ramen options in the District nowadays. Head to Daikaya in Chinatown when you're craving lighter, more traditional noodles.
When you're feeling guilty about all the pizza you've had recently, head to Shouk in Mt. Vernon for healthy-ish salads and pita sandwiches.
Hit Bethesda Bagels for breakfast and lunch in Dupont, but expect a line.
Tabard Inn in Dupont has a reliable brunch, but the patio is a nice spot for dinner (and live jazz), too.
Surfside Taco is a 24-hour, hole-in-the-wall with tacos, burritos, and quesadillas in Dupont. You'll probably find yourself here at 2pm and 2am.
Stop by Glen's in Dupont for a quick sandwich or pizza on the patio.
