Kibbee Nayee Posted January 25, 2014 Share Posted January 25, 2014 I got to thinking....does Washington have an iconic food place, not a 3-star (necessarily) but a place that defines the city, where locals eat all the time but tourists also flock to, where the food is honest and the place has been around long enough to be passed down from generation to generation. Like Katz's Deli in New York, or Swan Oyster Depot in S.F., or the No Name Restaurant in Boston. Definitely NOT Pat's or Geno's in Philly because most locals avoid them, but perhaps Tony Luke's. Or like Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat one of those. Two questions, more or less.... Name the landmark restaurants or food joints that define American cities. Does L.A. have one (Pink's?) or Chicago (Geno's?) or Boise or Des Moines or wherever? And then name the place that defines Washington DC.... I'm guessing it's Ben's Chili Bowl in DC, with Old Ebbitt Grill in second place....but am I missing one or more...? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
