We thought that might get your attention. Now that we have it, be sure to mark your calendar for FamousDC’s next Food For Thought on September 29. Bring your appetite, an open mind and get ready for some food and some thought.

DC is rapidly becoming one of the country’s best food cities, ranging from cheap eats to expensive tasting menus. Next time you want to go out, but don’t want to break the bank, try these DC establishments for some change (pun intended).
The seasons might change, but the swamp ain’t.
