Lively Restaurants in Washington DC

Even politicians and bureaucrats like to have a good time and they support a wide variety of fun restaurants here in Washington, DC. Central Michel Richard is a modern American brasserie between the White House and the Capitol. It offers great American cuisine with a French accent and a vibrant bar scene with boutique beers and wines and modern and classic cocktails. Zaytinya specializes in Greek, Turkish and Lebanese food served as mezze - small plates, similar in size to tapas. Local 16 makes you feel at home: as you enter the restaurant, you're greeted by a casual atmosphere, unpolished floors, hanging lamps and bordello-red walls. Acadiana is a glass-walled triangle-shaped restaurant that's close to the convention center - and if you're in need of a Sazerac or mint julep pick-me-up in the middle of your meetings, the bar stays open straight through from lunch to dinner. Wherever you elect to go, you'll find a delightful experience in the fun restaurants of Washington, DC.
