Sichuan Pavilion (DC), web site, 1814 K Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-466-7790 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Google | Yelp]
No relation to the Sichuan Pavilion in Rockville.
This is mostly a normal (though somewhat above average) American Chinese restaurant, but they have some legitimate Sichuan dishes yes right there in midtown DC, K Street at that! The steamed bacon (pork belly) with preserved vegetables is excellent. The Dan Dan noodles are not bad. There may be a few other gems hidden in the menu, so given its location this place offers some real value. Just keep in mind what it’s good at and where it is simply K Street mainstream.
