DC Dinner & Lunch Recommendations

Here's the report back -

Il canale - tried to change reservations via open table, but showed zero availability around our time. Arrived at the restaurant and it was half empty. Service was good, nothing exceptional. Started with two pizzas which were fantastic. Followed up by the bufala, which My party felt had an odd taste (we are all huge mozz and bufala fans). We did pastas as main course and the gnocchi and seafood pasta were both fantastic. Seafood pasta was one of the best I've ever enjoyed.

Old ebbitt grill - great lunch, salmon highlighted on the menu was probably the best salmos I've ever had - perfect pan seared crust - seasoned perfect.

Founding farmers - really like the atmosphere and had fantastic service - but felt the food was more gimmicky than good. Couple of neat things on the menu, but overall felt the execution was poor. The chicken and waffles had delicious crispy chicken and a soggy stale 1/2 waffle.

Graffiato - least favorite meal that I really wanted to enjoy. They should give you a heads up that the good comes out immediately. Was there with a party of five and we were in and out within an hour - including wine and drinks. Some of the dishes were really good, others were average. The pepperoni sauce was good, but reminded me of something they should serve with a little Caesars pizza. My wife asked for more dipping bread and they just brought and charged us for another order.

Overall - wish I would've had more time in Georgetown to try some of the other recommendations. Other thing which baffled me - the options near the mall / monuments are almost non existent. I did see a line of what appeared to be good trucks, got exited, but they were all dirty ice cream trucks. What a fantastic place to have a bunch of resident food trucks.
