Discover Shaw

The Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C. is known for being a hub of international restaurants. Running from Mt. Vernon Square to U Street, this trendy area is packed with eateries and hosts everything from Thai and West African cuisine to French-Asian fusion food. These multicultural restaurants frequently entertain throngs of students from Howard University as well as business professionals meeting for lunch before heading back to the Mt. Vernon Square Convention Center. If your taste buds prefer more classic American-style food, try the half-smoke hot dog, one of D.C.'s most iconic dishes. This hot dog is smothered in french fries, cheese sauce, meaty chili and raw onions. You can grab one of these hearty hot dogs just east of the African-American Civil War Memorial.
