Eliot on 4th’s Southwest DC apartments are just moments from 2017’s highest-rated restaurants.

In a city known for its historic monuments and political atmosphere, it’s the dining scene that’s been making headlines.

Through the help of passionate foodies, including Neighborhood Restaurant Group and José Andrés Think Food Group to name but a few, Washington, DC, ranked as Zagat’s Number 1 Hottest Food City in 2016. The district is now providing more Michelin-awarded dining experiences than ever before.

“Most longtime residents would agree that DC was stuck in a dining rut for decades, and it’s almost as if someone hit the fast-forward button… The dining revolution here has happened so quickly, and now’s the moment we sit back and savor it. So to DC chefs, we’d like to say this: You rock. Keep killing it. We’re proud of you.”
