Fodor's Expert Review P.J. Clarke's DC

$$ Downtown Burger
The D.C. branch of the venerable New York institution focuses on classic American comfort food, including burgers, oysters, rotisserie chicken, and steaks. The checkered tablecloths, rich woods, and relaxed service make it clear that this is an old-fashioned saloon. Happy hour is popular, offering great oyster and beer specials. It's just a stone's throw from the White House. Downstairs is a members-only dining room, called Sidecar, that costs nothing to join, but you need a referral. Quieter than upstairs, it offers precisely the same menu.
