Going To Dc (georgetown)

Recommended Posts

Hubby and I are going to DC in mid-Feb and staying in Georgetown. haven't been to DC since I've been gluten-free so I'm looking for some restaurant recommendations. We will be seeing the sights (Smithsonian etc.) during the day and i always find lunch difficult.

Also want one really nice dinner since it's his birthday. Thank you!

I haven't been to DC since before gluten-free, but I wanted to say that I loved the Smithsonian! I could have spent several days there.

Hope you get lots of suggestions--and Angus's new pic is cute! He's really getting big! :D

You HAVE to go to Clyde's!!! They do not have a gluten free menu, but they are gluten free aware.

Clyde's is an old romantic spot for us. Sitting in the window at Clyde's and watching the snow fall....well that snow amounted to 36 inches and he was marooned with me for three days. Well, we made the best of the worst times and stilll married to him. :rolleyes: It is in Georgetown at 3236 M Street, and very established and well known.

1769, 1226 36th Street is a high end restaurant and is also in the Triumph Dining Guide. Just below 1769 is a pub called "The Tombs"....... OMG, we used to skip school (high school) go into the city and eat pizza and drink 3/2 beer and return back to go to Mr. Barretts civic class. He never fussed as long as we brought him some pizza. Those were the days.

The Capital Grille, 601 Penn. Ave, (not in Georgetown, but a short cab ride to the Hill) , could be very interesting if you want to see who is who in DC. They DO have a gluten free menu.

I love that city. Enjoy your time there.

PM me about your dates.

I don't really live in DC, but I used to.

I am not familiar with the restaurant that you mentioned and it is not in the Gluten Free Dining Guide.

I would recommend that you get some dining cards that are in several languages. It has always been a big help to me.

I am sorry that I am not much help.

Lisa! I never knew about these places!!!!!!!!!!! I think maybe I will have to check them out!

(Bev, I am in the DC suburbs.......would love to see you!)

Bev, I'll do a search...I have posted a few times about places up here. I'll try to find it.

I lived here twice as a kid (non Celiac at the time), and my family has been in the "midAtlantic" area since I was in elementary school. We were in VaBeach for a year and just moved up here in Oct.
