Some people have a hard time going to a restaurant and eating alone. But I quite enjoy it!
I sit at the bar, people watch and happily enjoy a favorite dish I don't have to share. If you are visiting DC may I suggest the octopus at Zaytinya? They do an outstanding job!
Many friends who have told us "oh, I don't like octopus!" have changed their mind after sampling it here. If you go, let me know what you think.
