While we prefer the old-school vibes in the original Penn Quarter spot, Rasika West End also serves some of the best upscale Indian food in the city. The design here is sleek and modern, and it’s a great place for a special occasion or client dinner around Foggy Bottom. The menu is a little different, but you’ll still find the classics like black cod and and spinach chaat. It’s not an every night kind of restaurant, but if you’re looking to impress, Rasika is where you go.
