Taste

Where Washington - - WHERE NOW -

High-pro­file peo­ple, in­clud­ing for­mer D.C. Mayor Vin­cent Gray, have dined on low-coun­try com­fort foods like gumbo at Ge­or­gia Brown’s (950 15th St. NW, 202.393.4499), which also hosts a pop­u­lar Sun­day gospel brunch. Marvin (2007 14th St. NW, 202.797.7171) pays homage to R&B singer Marvin Gaye with an eclec­tic menu re­flect­ing the vo­cal­ist’s years in D.C. and Bel­gium. Ben and Vir­ginia Ali’s beloved Ben’s Chili Bowl (1213 U St. NW, 202.667.0909, left) has been serv­ing up the city’s fa­mous “half­smoke” hot dogs since 1958, draw­ing celebs and politi­cos, whose pho­tos dec­o­rate the walls in­side. In 2008, the Alis’ sons opened Ben’s

Next Door (1211 U St. NW, 202.667.8880), dish­ing up a full menu of South­ern fa­vorites like brined fried chicken and shrimp and white grits.
