23 "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.
Sweetgreen is the best place for a casual salad in DC, and definitely in Foggy Bottom.
&pizza does make-your-own fast-casual pizza, and it’s great for an easy lunch or dinner in Foggy Bottom.
Swizzler is a gourmet hot dog truck (you have options like pesto and mozzarella) that you can find around GW, Georgetown, and Northwest DC.
The best sandwiches in Foggy Bottom are at Jetties. Expect a long line at lunch, but the Thanksgiving Nobadeer is worth it.
Beefsteak has things like beet burgers on the menu, but also rice bowls for the less health-crazed. Use it for a quick lunch in Foggy Bottom.
One of the best spots in Bethesda for lunch. The sandwiches are stars of the menu, but they also have salads and soups.
Sweetgreen in Bethesda is further proof that the chain is taking over the DMV with salads. That's a good thing.
