Owner description: The U Street Corridor is home to some of DC's iconic foods. Ben's Chili Bowl, home of the half-smoke, is there plus an area referred to by some as "Little Ethiopia" due to the large number of Ethiopian restaurants.

U street is the place to start your weekend in DC, we found very interesting restaurants and bars along the street, and finally decides for an amazing meal at an ethiope place

This used to be one of the worst areas of DC, but voila! There's been a renaissance and this area has come back big time. Interesting and varied restaurants, clubs, bars and even a place where you can read and hear poetry (Busboy & Poets). Music is a big deal now and you can catch jazz (Bohemian Caverns the best spot) at several places and live music at several clubs. A favorite restaurant next door to the famous Ben's Chili Bowl, is "Next Door" one of the few places in DC that serves delicious and rarely served "kale" -- the other is B Smith's at Union Station. This is an area where you can come for dinner and party all night.

Visiting U street is to me taking a step into another world. The restaurants are great, lots of soul. I visited U street in the sixties often going to the Bohemian Caverns (Home of The In Crowd-Ramsey Lewis) If you visit DC check out U street. You won't be disappointed.

It's not the best I've ever had but the best for this DMV area for sure. Plus the place has a lot of history so going to check it out isn't a bad thing either.

I didn't rate this highly because visitors to Washington with limited time can find more interesting places to spend their time. This corridor is probably past "up-and-coming".
