100 Best Restaurants 2012: Cashion's Eat Place

From soulful bistros to high-gloss steakhouses, there's lots of good eating in DC, Maryland, and Virginia


The urbane, casually romantic restaurant is suddenly all the rage among big-city restaurateurs. Well, this Adams Morgan haunt devised the script nearly two decades ago. Lots of places do cozy and charming--they also do it for a lot more money.

The bar is a low-key party even on weeknights, service is attentive and warm, and the cooking, under chef/owner John Manolatos, strikes a balance between comfort and polish. You might not talk about something you ate at dinner for the rest of your life, but you'll likely walk out happy.

What to get: Foie gras with cider gastrique; fried rabbit loin with Creole mustard; head-on shrimp cooked a la plancha; chicken posole with crème fraîche and fried tortillas; rabbit meatloaf with braised red cabbage and mushroom gravy; miso-marinated wild sablefish with bok choy and shiitakes; spit-roasted goat with grilled flatbread, tzatziki, and black-eyed-pea salad; cannoli with pistachio ice cream; cherry clafoutis.

Open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, Sunday for brunch and dinner. Expensive.
