Washington, Dc

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just found out that I will be moving to Washington, DC in the summer for at least 2 years, but probably longer. I will be spending most of my time at/near Georgetown U, but I will be most likely living in Virginia or Maryland.

Does anyone have any experience in eating on Georgetown's campus or the surrounding area, or any recommendations on any locations with cheap, safe food. (and preferably cheap rent :rolleyes: ). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!


Symptoms on and off my whole life

Major symptoms starting 2005

Zero blood antibodies

Gluten free with positive dietary response since April 2007

There are a ton of great restaurants that are gluten free. As for cheap rent, not so much.

1. Jaleo/Austin Grill/Oyamel/Zaytina/Cafe Atlantico all have a special gluten free menu

2. California tortilla has some gluten-free options as well

3. lots of the sushi places are really helpful

hope that helps!!! i find when i call ahead most of the restaurants are willing to help

Just to update anyone moving to DC, here is what I found--

In Georgetown: SweetGreen, Qdoba, Chipotle, 5 Guys, and the Tombs were my staples. The Tombs is amazing with allergies, I highly recommend it. The same people (I think) own Clydes, so I am sure they would be easy too.

In Rosslyn/Court House: Silver Diner, Pho 75, Baja Fresh, California Tortilla, Chipotle

Bethesda: Original House of Pancakes, Austin Grill, Chipotle, Baja Fresh, and supposedly Lilit Cafe...

I tried Lilit Cafe, but they messed up my take-out order/I was recovering from norovirus, so I have nothing really to report :o .

My gosh, is the Tombs still open. That's where we went, when we skipped Mr. Barletts government class, to hang out. (but don't tell my mom :ph34r: )

Flemings in McLean/Tysons Corner, VA is very accommodating. The waiter was fairly knowledgeable about wheat and I explained to him that it included barley and rye as well. He was pleasant and understanding and wasn't afraid to ask me questions back, which I appreciated.

Ted's Montana Grill was really great and have a gluten-free menu. The one I went to was in Crystal City (Arlington) and is a very short walk from the metro. I know this may not apply to the original poster but it may apply to those still looking lol

BTB, does anyone know if you can get to that Lilith Cafe from the DC metro? I am living in Crystal City / interning in DC for the summer and both were right off the metro so I didn't feel the need to have a car with me.
