We are constantly asked by email and phone if there is anywhere to eat before you come on one of our magical tours. So, in an effort to give our customer service ghosts a break and to allow them to sample more “spirits” around the office, we have employed a special person to provide you with that she feels is the best options around all of our tours.
Our Grub Guide for Washington DC:
WHITE HOUSE PUB TOUR:
Founding Farmers: $$$
I like this for several reasons, but the daily popcorn options are a great appetizer option. My favorite dinner option is the skirt steak at Founding Farmers. It’s a hard to find dish and even harder to find cooked perfectly, but they do it!
Georgia Browns: $$
This place is well known for their famous brunch that feeds you twice in one day, with their to go meal when you finish eating their endless buffet. The dinner menu has some winners as well! The fried green tomatoes are the best I’ve ever had and they come with a creamy goat cheese filling on top of the tomato, then its fried and served with a tomato relish. Can’t go wrong with the shrimp ‘n’grits either!
District of Pi : $
I will probably catch some heat from this because we are sure to have New Yorkers and Chi-Towners that love their pizzas and this is on the verge of a $$, but it is worth visiting. They have a great pizza and beer selection here and can accommodate small and large groups. Order your pizza however you like it!
OLD TOWN PUB TOUR:
Virtue is located really close to our starting line. We think they have a really great atmosphere that is perfect if you want a pre-tour cocktail as well as some pretty good grub. Make sure you try the I.P.A Mac and cheese! Reservations are highly reccomended.
Fish Market: $$
Many of you are going to think seafood and probably book Chart House on the water. However, this little gem has much better food and you can eat at a Landry’s restaurant anytime, so skip the Chart House. The spiced shrimp are some of the best I have ever had and are well known in the area. I also highly recommend the Po’ Boy and if you can make it for happy hour, you will love your wallet with huge schooner beers and cheap apps.
Bugsy Pizza: $
Notice a theme of Pizza shops? We like pizza, so we like to keep one option on the list for all the locations. This place has pretty decent pizza at a reasonable price. It is also near the starting line, so if you are shorter on time, I would go here for a quicker bite before the tour.
