With nearly 50 years as one of black Washington's strongholds, Ben's Chili Bowl is being "rediscovered" by DCers from other neighborhoods as the place to cozy up with some damn good, uh, chili. Indeed, it has a retro feel--minus the segregation--that attracts a cross-section of folks, from area residents, to theatre-goers, to indie rockers. Check your pretensions at the door. As long as you're here to eat, you're in good hands.
