I was just in D.C. during the last week of June (think massive rainfall and flooding) for a conference. I was fortunate enough to be staying in a hotel which was attached to the Crystal City shops, so I didn't have to head out into the elements to forage for food. I happened upon Oyamel's menu while cruising the shops and I was intrigued. I ended up eating there for both lunch and dinner. I absolutely loved the creative menu, the atmosphere, and the flavor of the cuisine. Yes, I'm using the word cuisine here because it definitely wasn't your standard fare. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I tried. (I only wish I could have tried more...) There were plenty of veggie options for those who are avoiding meat, but there were plenty of meat options as well. I've already said it, but I'll sum it up again: creative, great atmosphere, great food. Definitely worth a try! (And if you should happen to go when it's cold/rainy, try their Mexican hot chocolate. It warms your belly and your soul!)
