Restaurants in Foggy Bottom

A West End favorite, Blue Duck Tavern serves home-style American fare with an emphasis on traditional methods of cooking like roasting, braising, preserving, and smoking.

Ideal for pre-theatre dining, this small, intimate Italian restaurant is located in the Foggy Bottom district, just a seven-minute walk from the Kennedy Center.

Founded by John Snedden, Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Co. first opened in Glover Park in 1990. Now a regional chain with locations in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C., Rocklands serves classic, affordable barbecue cooked only with red oak and hickory.

Green to the extreme, this 21st-century approximation of a farmhouse just blocks from the White House features menus printed on recycled paper and award-winning CORE architecture.
