    Rasika in Washington, DC is a swanky Indian restaurant in the Penn Quarter

    VIBE

    Swanky Indian restaurant that’s one of DC’s hottest dining spots. With strands of crystals hanging from the ceiling, blonde wood tables, and crisp white linens, the modern décor is the perfect accompaniment to the fashionably creative Indian dishes coming out of the kitchen. Although not strictly traditional, the flavorful grilled meats, curries, and rice dishes are a fun take on the Indian classics, and the lively crowd sure eats it up.

    CROWD

    A well-heeled mix of DC socialites, party-goers, and jetsetters at night, and the business set by day.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Something chic like black pants, a silk top, and bold accessories

    Friends; a date; co-workers

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The sleek décor, the glamorous crowd, the inventive dishes–we love it all. Also, this is a great place for vegetarians, given the range of veggie stews, chutneys, and dumplings on the menu.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The food is a little overpriced for what it is, and we think the naan should be complimentary (USD 8 for a bread basket?).

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Rasika offers a pre-theater menu, as well as catering services (check the website for details).
