Ed. Note: Wait till they hear about Casa Luca

“Dear PoPville,

Which D.C. restaurants are popular with national politicians?

According to a investigative website, it’s these:

Charlie Palmer Steak
Joe’s Stone Crab
Bistro Bis
Casa Luca
Acqua Al 2
Fiola
Morton’s
Cap Grille”

Ed. Note two: A similar unofficial and unaffiliated study has revealed that Dan Silverman spent most at Blue 44, Nanny O’Briens, Vace, Soapstone Market, Raku and 2Amy’s. Just being honest, if I had my druthers it’d all go to Pho Viet, Himitsu and Sushi Taro. What have your studies revealed?
