Good Eats in Washington, D.C.

I’ve been lucky enough to call D.C. home at two times in my life: during my Georgetown graduate school days, and then again last summer during my legal internship at Compassion Over Killing. Visiting again just last month, I enjoyed several of my favorite spots. Washington, D.C. has so many vegan-friendly options for dining. Here are the ones that make the top of my list… Cafe Green This restaurant, owned by the same team that runs Java Green, opened up last summer while I was living in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Yellow Curry Road to Bali and Seoul Food Platter are favorites. Zed’s Ethiopian A long-time fave for me! LOVE the Collard Greens Gomen. The Vegetarian Dinner for Two makes for a wonderful, romantic meal. In the Adams Morgan neighborhood, there’s Meskerem for Ethiopian, which is also delightful (and the first place I ever had Ethipoian in my life!) update 2012: Zed’s has a new name/owner, but it’s still great! Check out Das Ethiopian. Restaurant Nora America’s first certified organic restaurant couldn’t be a more romantic setting for dinner with a special someone. There are always vegetarian choices on the seasonal menu, and they are happy to accommodate vegans. And guess who was dining at the table right next to ours the last time we were there: Bill and Hilary seemed to be having a good time at Nora’s, too. Basil Thai I love this little Thai place at the top of the hill on Wisconsin. Whenever I’m wandering around D.C. and Georgetown, I usually wind up here for dinner least once during my visit. Harmony Cafe Harmony is tucked away downstairs on Georgetown’s M Street like a best-kept secret. But — trust me — it’s no secret how great this place is, especially among D.C. vegans. Harmony has some of the best pan-Asian food around, and they’ll make anything on the menu with mock meats, so there’s so much to choose from. I usually go for the Clay Pot curry. Asylum Great place in Adams Morgan for a happy hour or to hear some live music. The pub has several vegan items on the menu, and on Tuesdays you’ll get half-off a second order. I hear Asylum has a great vegan brunch on Sundays, too. Science Club This lounge/restaurant is great place to meet up with friends for drinks. The vibe reminds me of a lounge in my old NYC neighborhood, with its dim lighting and vintage chairs. Also the best vegan burger in town, made on the premises. Last time I was there, I met an old friend after work. We didn’t leave until almost midnight. Good times....

Dining Out: The Art of Improvising (in Africa)

Dining Out: The Art of Improvising (in Africa)

I’ve had friends ask about the challenges of dining out when adhering to a vegan diet. I always suggest checking out menus ahead of time, and even calling ahead. With a little planning, dining out really is a breeze most of the time, even when a restaurant isn’t ostensibly vegan-friendly. While we were in Zimbabwe, our itinerary included a stay at the country’s only five-star hotel, The Victoria Falls Hotel. The accommodations were lovely, and the staff top-notch. However, with menus that highlight local favorites such as crocodile and ostrich (with just  a few vegetarian options that centered on cheese and cream sauces), it took a little extra effort and creativity by the chefs to make our meals memorable and cruelty-free. Whether dining here in the States or abroad, the basic principle remains the same: it’s easiest to recommend substitutions and create variations on what’s already there, borrowing from other items on the menu. For example, I asked the kitchen to hold the feta and salmon on my “Nicoise” salad, and instead toss in some grilled red onions and pineapple that were part of other dishes on the menu. The grilled pineapple was borrowed from a dessert offering. My salad was SO awesome, I suggested to the maitre d’ that he recommend this dish to any vegetarians in the future, and further that the hotel consider adding the salad to its regular menu. Here’s hoping that, if the hotel gets repeated requests and recommendations like mine, a vegan menu option will materialize. At the same lunch, Seth wanted a sandwich, so he asked for one made with the stir-fry vegetables, a “side” on the menu. Easy enough, and...
