Visiting Tips
Most of the rides in this region are rideable all year round. The Frederick Watershed, Gambrel State Park, Emmitsburg, and trails in the George Washington National Forest tend to do better when conditions are wet in other area trails. MORE has a "trail status" page which is updated by local riders, please check it, or better yet, submit your trail reports to alert other users of trail conditions.
Food and Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

Protein Bar Fantastic selection, amazing high-energy food in a bright clean venue
Oyamel Cocina Mexicana This Mexican playground from creator Jose Andres is a trailblazer. Thanks to recent expansion next door, it's also more comfortable than ever.
Wiseguy NY Pizza Most authentic NY pizza I have had in DC. It's delicious. They also have EXCELLENT garlic knots - an impossible find in DC.
Food Truck Alley Dropped a co-worker off @ train station and stumbled across this great food truck stop. Previous tips say Tues/Weds are best but today (Thurs) had tons of trucks. Vendors said Tues-Thurs are best.
Daikaya High-5 the manager Eddie for wearing a Hugh & Crye shirt.
Roti Mediterranean Grill Great customer service. Had to wait three minutes for rice, so they offered me a free drink and cookie to make up for it!
Beef N' Bread Cali beef or Cali turkey. Amazing sandwiches with delicious crispy bacon.
a baked joint Don't miss the biscuit with chesse and egg. It is happiness
440 K St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 408-6985
Central Michel Richard Best bets: lobster and tuna burgers in addition to the beef standard. The fried chicken is also incredible.
Pi Pizzeria Their deep dish “The Kirkwood” cops ingredients like mozzarella, Italian meatballs, and red peppers, presumably named for what Shatner gets every time he hears someone mention deep dish pizza.
910 F St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 393-5484
&pizza Made to order flat pizza in the heart of DC!!! See for yourself!!!
1005 E St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 347-5056
Taylor Gourmet We are going to keep it fresh and continually change up the specials!
485 K St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 289-8001
Nando's PERi-PERi This Nando's location is hands down the best in the area - the staff are super sweet
CAVA Very fresh. All the meats look great. Had the falafel-- pretty good. Yummy house made sauces, sides & drinks (eg. honey basil green tea).
707 H St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 719-0111
Busboys and Poets Named after the poet Langston Hughes, this restaurant/bookstore/fair-trade market is a favorite hangout among NPR staffers.
Matchbox Vintage Pizza Bistro If God ate pizza, He'd eat at matchbox. At the fucking bar. And He'd cuss because God rocks you. I reccommend the following bartenders: Shannon, Laura, Eric and I'm warming up to Lauren and Lindsey.
713 H St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 289-4441
Shouk Everything!!
655 K St NW, Washington D.C. — (202) 652-1464
sweetgreen best salads ever. cesar reggiano is a classic and delicious :)
We, The Pizza Arugula Files recommends trying the meatball sub. "Nona Colletti's meatballs taste just like an Italian grandmother's meatballs should: light and meaty."
Indigo If you ever choose TD Burger over this place, you've failed as a human.
243 K St NE, Washington D.C. — (202) 544-4777
