1. Cedar 822 E St NW , Washington, DC , DC 20004 (Penn Quarter)

You'd think this place's prime Penn Quarter spot would guarantee a perpetual influx of tourists, but it stays under the radar in a basement with minimal signage. Even with its decadent interior with polished, black-lit mirrors, silky tablecloths, and forest-patterned wallpaper, Cedar remains to be one of DC's hidden gems that you can enjoy all to yourself (and with a few others). The fare here revolves around game like venison, elk and duck with sides and starters made from local produce like sweet potato soup, roasted beet salad, and diver scallops.
