    The food was amazing as always but the service was A1. I am a regular at Georgia Browns and had never seen Tishonda there before but she was amazing. She checked on us every chance she got to make sure we were good or if we wanted more drinks. I look forward to service like this because let’s be honest in the district it’s not the best. I will be ack of course and hopefully will see her again!

    Loved everything about the place. Even if you’re a party of two or dining alone there is a 20% gratuity added to the bill. So just be aware. I had the short ribs and I was honestly blown away. It was soo tender and juicy and delicious. I had it with the Mac and cheese and asparagus. My gf had the pan seared salmon and mashed potatoes and it was amazing as well! Drinks were hella strong! We also had spinach dip. Our food plus our 4 drinks which averaged about $19 a piece plus gratuity came out to about $180. It was worth it and we’ll be back.

Discover District of Columbia

The District of Columbia is a place where eating out can be an adventure. Caribbean, Italian, and Pakistani cuisine can be found in the area. You can also dine on classic American fare, seafood, and barbecue. Try the Jamaican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin or the steak churrasco for a taste of the Caribbean. If you plan to eat Italian cuisine, sample the gamberi, cannelloni, or the pollo parmigiano. The District of Columbia’s Pakistani fare is traditional with dishes like Punjabi boti chicken tikka, goat dum biryani, or the butter chicken. For breakfast, you might like steel cut oats, organic cottage cheese and fresh fruit, or French toast and beef hash. This is a destination where the food is almost as good as the sights.
