Occidental Grill

Steak in White House Area & Foggy Bottom

This DC institution is practically wallpapered with mug shots of congresspeople and other political celebs who have dined here through the years. And although the Occidental isn’t the nerve center it once was, plenty of bigwigs still roll up their pinstripes to dive into its hamburgers (lunch only), salads, steaks and seafood. It also hosts a popular happy hour (4pm to 7pm weekdays).
