Food scene in Prince George's County

Market
$$
“A trendy food space with lots of options to explore. Options range from gourmet ice cream to a mix of global flavors including Indian, Peruvian, Italian, and many more. Just outside the main market on a side street in the Village Cafe when is my favorite local coffee shop run by native Washingtonians and tucked next door to Politics and Prose Bookstore, a great local Indie bookstore. Tons of other great restaurants around the market too.”

French Restaurant
$$$
“Bustling brasserie serves classic French fare & drinks amid a zinc bar, tile floors & sidewalk cafe. Washington Post Review by Tom Sietsema Here’s why it’s so hard to book a table at a decent hour at the city’s most popular French restaurant: the bread basket, generously filled with three flavors, including country wheat; the waiters in their long white aprons, there when you need them and quick to describe any dish to your satisfaction; a setting of pressed-tin ceilings, blood-red banquettes and honeyed lighting that could pass for a brasserie in the country of inspiration. Then there’s the food, textbook versions of onion soup, steak frites and apple tarte Tatin, plus daily specials that will make you glad to be there on, say, Friday for spot-on bouillabaisse. Who in town makes a lighter foie gras mousse, or a finer duck a l’orange, the skin of the leg fried so that it shatters under your teeth? Noise is the cochon at the party. Otherwise, I recognize the attraction of fans including Gérard Araud. If it’s good enough for the discerning French ambassador, it’s good enough for moi.”

Wine Bar
$$
“This place is pretty popular right now. It has a high end feel, but you can still wear a button down or dress/jeans. You often will see exotic cars parked out front and the clientele reflects that. If you are in DC on a cool night, appetizers are excellent out on the front patio. High-end cocktails are the norm, but you may see some of the younger crowd line up some shots later in the evening. ”

American Restaurant

“Located just down Monroe Street, I’m at The Coupe at least once a week! They do coffee and pastries to-go ($3-$5), as well as sit down breakfast ($15pp), lunch, and dinner. It’s pretty big so there isn’t usually a wait (Sometimes for brunch), and very reasonably priced. Definitely worth checking out! ”
