Inspired by MC Slim JB’s “”27 Really Terrible Boston Restaurant Names” from last week’s Weekly Food News Round Up, we thought that DC should have its own.

So here it is, a list of oddly/funnily/unfortunately names restaurants in the DC area. If you’re on the list, take no offense, all in good fun.

  • The Sacrificial Lamb (DC) – I like to picture my dinner bleating as it get its throat cut.
  • Sauciety (National Harbor) – Apparently this is part of a chain of Starwood hotel restaurants. They focus on sauces. *Groan*
  • Tono Sushi (DC) – You know how much sushi I’m going to eat tonight? A ton-o.
  • Co Co. Sala (DC) – It has an extra period. Probably why it needs all that chocolate.
  • Fyve (Pentagon City)- What’s wrong with Five?
  • Pusser’s Caribbean Grill (Annapolis) – Ick. Their website pusserusa.com makes it worse.
  • Savour and Sutra (DC) – Technically it’s two places with two names which are okay. But together, they freak me out.
  • Pho Kim (Alexandria) – And all his friends.
  • Sou’Wester (DC) – “Hey, we’re in SW”
  • Meat in a Box (Falls Church) – These guys get it. I love them.
  • Cheep Cheep Chicken (Annapolis) – The sound a little chick makes or the value of the meat. Which is worse?
  • Mr. Yogato (DC) – Domo arigato
  • Pete’s Apizza (DC)- For people who aren’t from around here, they always think I’m trying to bring back the Little Ceasar’s tagline. Which make me look like a loser and I hate that.
  • Corduroy (DC) – Not something I want in my mouth.
  • Moby Dick House of Kabob (Metro) – Another one you forget about until you discuss lunch plans with out-of-towners.
  • Againn (DC) – They used the “n,” again.
  • Bilbo Baggins (Alexandria)- A global wine cafe and restaurant, named after a hairy-footed Hobbit.
  • Prego Again (DC) – A tweet from a reader makes me realize just how funny this really is. You slut.
  • Steam Cafe (DC) – You know what’s not appetizing at all? Steam.
  • The Fractured Prune (Metro) – Bad name, good donuts.
  • Oohhs and Aahhs (DC) – No one knows how to spell it, and no one likes saying it.
  • Thaitanic and Thaiphoon (DC and Alexandria)- The ability to make terrible disasters seem cute by blending them with national identify = delicious.
  • New Big Wong (DC) – Caught my boyfriend taking cell phone pics of this one. We all should really.
