1. Senart's Oyster and Chop House 520 8th St SE, Washington, DC 20003 (Barracks Row)

Built in the shell (and spirit) of the original Barracks Row oyster house that closed down in 1939, the new Senart's is a haven to the butchered and bivalve'd: a classic chophouse covered in marble, South Carolina Walnut, and old-timey photos of DC, all lit by skylights cut into a recess that once housed the Senart family's one bedroom apartment, where a lack of privacy and abundance of oysters probably resulted in some really awkward nights.
