Dining in Bethesda & our Nation's Capital
At the Bethesda Hyatt Regency
There are convenient and delicious dining options right at the hotel:
A short walk outside the hotel provides a whole host of dining options. Wandering through Bethesda Row, you'll find a plethora of delicious choices. Here are a few highlights.
- Think you can handle eating a nine pound burger, then stop in BGR: The Burger Joint (but call ahead if you really want the nine-pounder!). Oh, you may want to bring a friend or two to help with one of the biggest burgers on the block!
- Looking for a healthier option? Head over to Sweet Green for a yummy salad.
- Vapiano provides a casual place to kickback and lounge while enjoying some pizza, pasta, and salads.
- In need of a sweet treat? You gotta visit Georgetown Cupcakes! They have a location at Bethesda Row, and within walking distance of the hotel.

- Alex Nicholson has kept tabs on places where the First Family has dined around the District so check out their picks! One is a classic D.C. establishment—Ben’s Chili Bowl—where you can get chili cheese dogs, half-smokes, or burgers and fries. It’s located just off the U Street-Cardozo Metro stop on the Green Line. The U Street area is a vibrant area full of a wonderful array of bars and eateries that are not the typical tourist traps. This was one of President Obama’s first food stops before his inauguration.
- As IR folks, how can we turn down the opportunity to eat pizza at a restaurant that pays tribute to pi? The District of Pi is located near the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro Station.
