Bangkok Joe's

Washington DC is a very international city -- diplomats and professionals from all over the globe come to the capital of the United States to be close to where the decitions are made in the world's only remaining super power. As a result, you can choose from a large number of cool high quality restaurant serving all kinds of exotic food. Bangkok Joe's is one of these.

By Guest writer Susanne Koch

You find Bangkok Joe's in Washington Harbor, a cluster of restaurants located in or around some old harbor buildings right on the Potomac river in charming Georgetown.

The interior decoration is chique and artistic. There are no paintings. In stead there are wall mounted sculptures (pictured) and all the lamps are sculptures as well.

In spite of the posh location and the hip interior, the prices are not bad. In fact, there were quite a few students dining the night I was there. So the athosphere feels 'young'. But the usual Georgetown crew of powerful politicos was there as well.

The menu has a nice mix of classic Thai dishes (including a divine Pad Thai) and some more artistic fusion dishes. I had a hard time making up my mind.

All the dishes my table ordered were pretty, tasty and generous. The service was good and the drinks too :).

If you're dining n Washington DC, you might also want to try The Grill from Ipanema.
