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.
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.
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.
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.
