Within the beltway, the lunchtime crowd has high standards for everything and limited time between congressional hearings or client meetings to grab a bite, let alone check their personal phones. However, lunch is necessary, because happy hour isn’t for another 5 hours.

Here are 8 quick-grab spots that will keep you full and focused for the rest of the workday:


Buredo – DC & Bethesda

This burrito take on sushi will have your mouth watering and your waistline praising you. It’s basically your favorite rolls in a more convenient packaging and overstuffed with all-natural ingredients like fresh fish, seafood and loads of veggies.




Try: Gogo burrito (spicy tuna tartare, avocado, cucumber, cilantro, jicama, coconut flakes, tempura crunch, coconut crema)


Fruitive – City Center

Liquid meals pack a punch of flavor at this District juicery. Everything on the lengthy menu is organic, plant-based and made from scratch. And for those needing more lunchtime sustenance, their solid food options – like the Tuscan Kale Grilled Wrap – will have you leaping out of your desk at 12:00 PM on the dot!



Try: PB No J Superberry Bowl
