When it comes to food courts, you can't go wrong. Chances are, you'll be in the mood for at least one of the many food type selections. Plus you'll find a fresh selection for a low price.
Food courts can be summed up as any indoor area with a variety of food options. The routine is you grab a tray, choose a drink, and order food from different stations or sellers. This may be one wholly owned food provider with a cashier at the end of your destination, or it may be a conglomeration of food businesses that take your money at one section. The common thread is you take your food, pay, and then sit down in an indoor common area full of tables.
Food courts are pretty common along the tourist trail. Some are found in museums, they're reliably located in shopping malls, and they're sprinkled around various locations where business and tourist points of interest converge.
A few places to find food courts are:
- Union Station
- The Old Post Office Pavilion
- The Fashion Center at Pentagon City
If you're traveling with picky eaters, this is one way to find a selection to suit everyone's tastes.
