Fodor's Expert Review Jimmy T's Place

$ Capitol Hill American

Known for its boisterous owner and throngs of talkative regulars, this D.C. institution is tucked into the first floor of an old row house only five blocks from the Capitol. Enjoy favorites like eggs Benedict made with a toasted English muffin, a huge piece of ham, and lots of hollandaise sauce. Expect the unexpected in terms of clientele, and don't forget to play by the rules (that is, no substitutions, cash only, and as few questions for the staff as possible).
