As nice as it is to go to the latest, trendiest "it" restaurants and bars here in DC where a new establishment seems to crop up overnight on a daily basis, eating out on a regular basis can play havoc on one's wallet. As someone who is planning a wedding next year (apparently this is still a thing), I appreciate any opportunity to save a couple of bucks while not sacrificing quality or tastiness. Surprisingly DC is not short of local spots that offer great food at economical prices, if you're willing to go a little further afield away or in some cases, just look a little closer.
I've included a couple of recent local favorites I've discovered around town after the jump!
One woman's journey to eat all the food. Or at least, most of it.
