WASHINGTON, DC. - We've been conditioned to think that the best restaurants require some kind of hurdle. Surely, you’ll have to wait an hour or two in line. Or you’ll have to remember to make a reservation months in advance.

So, I was pleased how easy it was on a recent beautiful evening to get a table on the patio at Pineapple and Pearls—number one on Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants ranking. You probably know about the fine dining establishment’s ticketed $280 tasting menu. But it turns out the much more affordable a la carte menu of snacks and drinks available al fresco is somewhat of a hidden gem. I was surprised to learn later how many people, even avid restaurant-goers, didn’t know about it. It’s time to correct that (so yes, reservations may get a little tougher).
