In the whirlwind of Trump’s first 100 days, it’s understandable if you forgot to make Valentine’s Day date plans.
Lucky for you, some of Washington’s hottest restaurants don’t take reservations anyway – meaning you can cut out of work early, bring a book, and hold the line until your date arrives.
Our reservation-free recommendations:
Little Serow (if you can take the heat), Bad Saint (for Filipino fare and cozy vibes), Menomale (for romantic Neapolitan pizza), or Rose’s Luxury and Compass Rose (which actually did accept special reservations for tonight; but one couple’s last-minute breakup could mean your tasty treat!).
