Dining in DC

The Vienna Hotdog:

This is the best hotdog in the US.  It's meant to be a street dog, but the Shake Shack used to be a street vender.  Vienna hotdogs are only sold to street venders.  My guess is that the Shake Shack was grandfathered in when it left the streets for its dine-in restaurant.  Hotdogs, in my opinion, don't get any better than this.

The Shake Shack:

This place is off Dupont Circle.  Just google the Shake Shack to find directions.  I would give them to you, but I get lost in DC.

Here's the main fare there: hotdogs and hamburgers with fries.  My daughter Michelle took me here for lunch.  She had the burger and I had the dog.  Love Vienna hotdogs.  If you ever come across a street vender, ask what kind of hotdogs (s)he's selling.  If it's Vienna, buy one.

Scion's Restaurant:

This place is a few blocks off of Dupont Circle and has some great dishes.


Where's the macaroni?  Look at all that cheese.  And the bacon flavor!  I ordered this for an evening meal.  Big mistake, but it was one of the most tasty mistakes of my life.  Forget about the pounds I gained over night and the trouble going to sleep with acid reflux.  This dish was awesome!

My daughter ordered this Swiss-cheeseburger.  It had fried pickles on top.  Another not-good-to-eat-late dinner.

DC Harvest:

The DC Harvest tends to serve more healthy foods, though tasty.  And I can't even begin to tell you where this one's located.  To keep me from getting you lost in DC, I'll let you google this one as well. Note: Brunch is served only on Friday thru Sunday.

House Scramble:

This omelet is the Harvest's house scramble.  It's stuffed with sautéed mushrooms and goat cheese.  Michelle's friend, Ann, ordered it.  They also make a scramble with spicy lamb sausage, peppers, and caramelized onions.  Thanks, Ann for taking us here.

Shrimp & Grits:

Typically, this is a New Orleans dish.   To my surprise, shrimp & grits was on the menu at the DC Harvest.  I had to order it, and it was so good.


My daughter ordered the pancakes.  She topped them with their awesome homemade strawberry preserves.  Need I say anything more?
