Washington, DC

Washington D.C.’s status as the nation’s capital is largely due to a dinner hosted at the home of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson met with James Madison and Alexander Hamilton to negotiate the relocation of the Capitol from New York City. Originally chosen by George Washington for both its natural beauty and the navigability of the Potomac River, the District is bordered by Maryland and Virginia. The influence held in the District of Columbia over the nation’s eating and drinking habits is literally immeasurable. The Food and Drug Administration regulates food products across the United States, assuring food safety through the enforcement of guidelines. Due to its cosmopolitan nature and being host to a number of foreign embassies, Washington D.C. is awash in restaurants featuring cuisines from around the world.
