Friday Question of the Day – Restaurants and/or Retail You Think are Overlooked?

2212 14th Street, NW

A couple weeks ago when we spoke about abrupt closure of the recently opened Diego restaurant at 14th and V St, NW – some commenters mentioned the nearby Judy Restaurant:

“Judys is an authentic Salvadoran/Mexican restaurant that has been around for more than 20 years. We are right between two of the busiest locations in DC: U Street and Columbia Heights. Along with our many authentic and delicious plates, we are best known for our pupusas and curtido!! Also one of our best kept secrets is our pool tables located on the second floor. Whether you’re in the neighborhood or just visiting, please come and join us for great and affordable food and drinks!”

You can see their menu here.

I thought we could use today’s FQotD to talk about some overlooked spots in town. It doesn’t necessarily have to be cheap eats and it doesn’t necessarily even have to be a restaurant – could be some good clothing or other retail spot. What do you think are the best, most overlooked spots in town?

I’m gonna vote for the sandwiches and back patio of The Bean Counter in Georgetown.

1665 Wisconsin Avenue, NW

It’s not the fanciest of patios but I’ve walked past it a hundred times without realizing it was there. And it’s a great spot to enjoy a great sandwich. You can see their simple but tasty menu here.
