Jay Woodward, AI Programmer: If you’re visiting the National Mall in downtown D.C., THE place to eat is the Mitsitam CafÃ©, at the National Museum of the American Indian. Their selection is extremely wide, and inspired by native cuisine from five different regions of North and South America. On Saturday I was there with my girlfriend, and we split a “five-region sampler platter”: buffalo steak, salmon filet, wild rice, carrots, and a vegetable salad. Completely excellent! Other than that, lately it’s been a mix of Baja Fresh, Chipotle, and (naturally) the Bethesda cafeteria — home of a vast array of delights, including the unstoppably delicious maple peppered bacon BLT on flatbread.
Michael Lattanzia, QA: Lots of delicious Renaissance Festival food, like Cheesecake on a Stick!
Ricardo Gonzalez, Stuff-His-Face Programmer: Chipotle. All else is but ashes in my mouth. I’m eating a burrito right now ( no joke ).
