Here at 2M Apartments, we adore our proximity to the Metro. With only 2 blocks to the NoMa-Gallaudet Station, it is so easy to access shops, office buildings and restaurants along the Red Line. To make it even simpler, we have compiled our favorite eateries that are just steps from various Red Line stations in the District. Want to get out of the neighborhood without hopping in the car? These Restaurants on the Red Line are here to save the day! Today we are featuring the Tenleytown-AU Metro Station.
As the name suggests, crisp and juicy Peruvian-style chicken is the star of the show here. Flavorful sides like fried yuca and plantains round out the plate in delicious fashion. Stop in for a causal dinner you can dig into with your hands, or take it home to feed a crowd.
A fun and relaxed atmosphere with generous portions make this a great option for larger parties and family dinners. With ample chips and salsa and oversized margaritas, you can’t go wrong! The Tenleytown Metro station is literally across the street, so eat to your heart’s content, then meander back to the rail.
For an authentic Indian food experience at a great value, stop in for the lunch buffet. Be sure to sample the naan bread and save some room for the unique dessert options!
