The debate over the best tapas in D.C. isn’t likely to be resolved anytime soon, but next dinner out try La Tasca, one of the city’s best. Tapas aren’t cheap, but when splitting with friends the price never seems too overwhelming. La Tasca has several locations, including an extremely Metro-accessible location in Chinatown. The menu is extensive, offering both standard Spanish tapas such as tortilla española and patatas bravas as well as their own creations, including literally the best eggplant you will ever put in your mouth. It’s fried in this light batter and served with a delicate cheesy sauce that is not to be missed. A side bonus? La Tasca has amazing opportunities for vegetarians, including the previously mentioned eggplant. With options for everyone and a lively crowd, get here early on weekends or come during the week to avoid the inevitable wait.
