It’s Friday night! Congress is on recess, my boss is on vacation, and the work week has officially (almost) ended. Life is good!
As I was brainstorming dinner spots to take a friend who is visiting from out of town this weekend, it occurred to me that restaurant dining (and drinking) is one arena where I’m not as conscious as I should be about my choices.

Deciding I needed to remedy this, I set out on a hunt for a listing of restaurants with locally-sourced food, organic noms, and other green places to enjoy a night out.
Surprisingly, my first sweep through available online information didn’t yield the impressive listings that I was going for. But, after a little bit of digging, I did find two reliable places to get started on my mission to find eco-friendly noms in DC, Maryland, and northern Virginia.
