D.C. was never a foodie town, but that is starting to change. Here are some great family choices: Smithsonian Museums: The “food trucks” outside the museums are pretty awful, but some of the cafeterias have better-than-expected food. Plan your day to be near the National Museum of American History around lunch and eat at the Stars and Stripes Café for regional and locally sourced dishes. Also the National Museum of the American Indian has native-inspired cuisine at the Mitsitam Café. National Cathedral: Our favorite pizza is at 2Amy’s. Grownup combinations and kid-friendly options abound. Plus a wine bar. Plus homemade doughnuts on Saturday and Sunday! (3715 Macomb St. NW., 202885-5700, 2amyspizza.com) U.S. Capitol: The Monocle Restaurant is on the Senate side of Capitol Hill, and is an institution. Dinner is pricey, but lunch affordable if you don’t let your kids order a steak (sandwiches and salads are in the $12-15 range). You’re bound to rub elbows with Senate staff and lobbyists, and the atmosphere can’t be beat. (107 D St., 202-546-4488, themonocle.com)
