International in White House Area & Foggy Bottom

Washington Circle's best-known tavern/bistro has sleek surrounds, friendly but harried staff and extensive food and drink menus. The main drawcard is the hopping bar, where drinkers sit alongside diners enjoying choices from the kitchen (steaks, burgers, pastas), raw bar and open-hearth oven. The formidable beer list includes 99 choices.
