3 DC Restaurants (2 from Shaw) Make OpenTable’s Top 100 Neighborhood Gems in the Nation

Tortino Italian Restaurant at 1228 11th St, NW

From an email:

“Three Washington, D.C. restaurants made OpenTable’s 2014 Diners’ Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Neighborhood Gems in America! This list is comprised of tried and true local standbys that boast cult-like followings.

D.C. winners include Thally, Tortino and Buck’s Fishing & Camping. Just over ten years old, Buck’s Fishing & Camping is well-known for its steaks, folky flair and locally sourced ingredients. Thally wins its affection from the locals with its fresh food and nod to the Shaw neighborhood (“Thally” refers to the Tally-Ho Stables, built in 1883, located in Naylor Court directly behind the restaurant).

These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for approximately 19,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
