If you are looking for good dining before a night at the Kennedy Center, District Commons is a great choice. It is located only one block from the Foggy Bottom Metro station where you can catch the free shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center.This posh, sassy addition to the Foggy Bottom dining scene (from the Passion Food Hospitality group) updates the tavern concept with a cool, modern look featuring huge windows, plus a cheeky menu that reimagines American comfort food. Service hits the mark. The real issue is that when it gets busy, it can really put the "din" in dinner. (from Zagat)

We were going to decline dessert, but when I saw that there was Boardwalk funnel cake with butterscotch and whipped cream I convinced Judy to share a plate. Being that we were from South Jersey and had spent many days at the Jersey shore, I thought that was the least we could do for our old Summer playground given the destruction from Hurricane Sandy.
