Who is the Hungry Lobbyist?
HungryLobbyist was founded by Brian Johnson, a DC lobbyist who has a serious passion for cooking, eating, pocket squares, and all things DC, and has become a must-read for District dwellers and visitors alike. The site takes a satirical, often ironic, and more often humorously judgmental look at restaurants, politics, clothing, DC events, and other things going on in our nation’s Capital. FoxNews.com says HungryLobbyist is, “An atypical Washington D.C. inside-the-beltway blog that’s actually meaningful outside the beltway as well.”
About the site
Our blog roll will contain general musings about lobbying, the DC food scene, event postings, recipes, as well as restaurant reviews and more.
While also posted on the blog, we’ll pull out all the restaurant reviews and list them under the menu item so they’re easy to find when you need a quick bite or have to make a last minute client dinner reservation. They’re also divided into three convenient categories.
- K Street Classics – here you’ll find reviews and recommendations of some of Washington DC’s most popular lobbyist haunts. K Street is historically known to house some of the areas biggest law firms and lobbying shops. As such, many of the tried-and-true staples still dot this street and the surrounding areas. This section will provide you with the classic DC restaurants both on K Street, and in the downtown and Capitol Hill surrounding neighborhoods.
- Off the Lobbyist Path – sometimes the traditional steak house with black napkins just doesn’t cut it. Here we’ll provide you with some alternative, and even more adventurous options. From Korean food in Dupont, to Peking Duck in Alexandria – these restaurants are sure to impress your most adventurous guests.
- Lobbyist On the Run – Don’t have time for the standard three-martini lunch? No problem. DC has become home to almost one-hundred of the best food trucks in the country. Sometimes, a quick bite between meetings is all you need. We’ll provide your mobile food truck reviews here.
