One of the most-frequented southern restaurants in Washington, Optimism offers a delightful menu. The laid-back atmosphere and reasonable prices allow visitors to focus on what matters: the high quality food.
There's no particular required attire, so feel free to dress comfortably. Also, sometimes there's live music, but keep in mind it can get a little loud.
According to locals, it's been tabbed as a really good option for both large groups, in addition to dancing. If you need food provided for a local event, take advantage of its catering options. Or, if you're looking for the perfect spot to unwind after work, it's got a phenomenal happy hour and a pretty stout selection behind the bar.
A good option for some of the best late-night food in Brookland, you won't walk away from Optimism disappointed.
