Fancy Radish is a new vegan restaurant on H Street. Some vegan places rely too heavily on meat substitutes, but here it’s all vegetables, all the time. Everything on the menu is $12-$20, and you’ll actually be full when you leave. The menu rotates based on what’s in season, but the fancy radishes, dan dan noodles, and rutabaga fondue are three dishes you should hope are available when you go. They also serve interesting cocktails (made with things like olive oil, yuzu, and kombucha) that almost taste healthy, and pair well with all of the vegetables you’ll be eating.

The Fainting Goat
Fainting Goat isn’t great, but you’ll end up here at some point. When the time comes, go heavy on the drinks and light on the food.
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.
