FGS Conference 2019 or Bust: FOOD

Now to the important question. What restaurants are around the hotel? For anyone not going to a sponsored lunch it's always good to know what the alternatives are. Also if you are staying at the hotel, some of the restaurants are only open for dinner.

So here is a list of restaurants I saw during my scouting trip. There may be more but these are the ones I saw!

I know I will be trying out a few of these myself. And remember, this is Washington, District of Columbia...so things can be a BIT pricey...so don't be shocked!!! 😄💲💲💲

Sorry for the delay. Lots of work things, life things, just things took me away from getting *MY* stuff done! Now on to the next project before next Monday!

Hope to see you there!!!


  1. What valuable and much needed information! We are so very grateful you shared!

  2. Thanks for the list. Not only is DC pricey, so is most of VA.

  3. Petits Plats is hands down the best restaurant in the area!
