Where to Eat Near Nationals Park (LET'S GO NATS!!)
With Game 7 of the World Series just hours away, picking the right venue to watch the game is just as important as knowing the pitch count. We have picked our favorite Navy Yard spots for watching the game, from late-night grub to popular bar balconies.
79 Potomac Ave SE
The Navy Yard location of Chef Michael Friedman's widely popular pizzeria is a great spot if you are craving some Italian-American cuisine such as oven-baked pizzas and braised meatballs. All Purpose's roomy roof bar is the perfect spot to start working on drinks, and being located on Potomac Ave near the ballpark means All-Purpose is the perfect spot to start your night.

Quick and casual, Rasa brings delicious Indian flavor to the Navy Yard. Vegetarian options are plentiful, and you can craft your own bowl to fit your own tastes. Vivid decorations and lots of natural light make Rasa a great alternative to the traditional industrial styles that abound in Navy Yard. While not the best bar to view the game, being on First and N means that Rasa is the perfect spot to grab a quick bite if you are running late to your friends' watch party.
1221 Van St SE
Located across M Street from Nats Park, Mission Navy Yard offers up delicious Mexican food and strong cocktails. Vibrant and spacious, Mission is the perfect spot for a bar viewing party with its self-proclaimed "DC's largest bar". Measuring at 150 feet, we have no reason to doubt that claim! All that elbow room lets you keep your eyes glued to one of many TV screens and not worrying about losing your spot. If the game gets down to the wire and you need a breath of fresh air, large outdoor balconies are only feet away.
202 M St SE
(Recommended after the Nats game... and after a couple drinks... ;))
The World Series is over and there isn't a better spot for a late night bite. Serving up oversized slices of the best thin crust in town, Wiseguys is the perfect pit spot before heading home. Everybody knows that pizza is the best thing to have after a couple of drinks and hours of cheering on your favorite team.
300 Tingey St SE
Are good brews as important to you as the game? Then Blue Jacket will be the perfect spot. With draft options ranging from Sweet Stouts to Mosaic IPAS, BlueJacket has beers for every craft beer enthusiast. The industrial aesthetic and wide-open layout allow for a comfortable viewing experience, all while surrounded by high-quality brewery grub like wings, beer, and pretzels. Located on the corner of 4th and Tingey, BlueJacket is only a short walk from Nats Park, allowing you to join your fellow fans once the celebration kicks off.
Nashville Hot Chicken, Mac n Cheese, Collard Greens + Ice Cream TACOOS
1025 First St SE
Are you a lover of fried chicken? What about oysters? Maybe ice cream tacos? If so, Roy Boys will be the perfect spot for a tasty pregame meal. The infamous Nats W logo inside Roy Boys lets you know you're in the right spot to watch the final game of the World Series. With enough TV's inside and a dope drink menu, rest assured you WILL have a good time here. Situated on First and L, Roy Boys is only a couple blocks away from Nats Park and is right in the thick of things, making it easy to join the festivities with fellow fans.
