The Smithsonian's National Zoo is updating and renovating its dining options! In the meantime, The Mane Grill remains open and local food trucks can be found along Olmsted Walk. Check back in a few weeks to see what's new! We promise it'll be toad-ally awesome. Kid-friendly, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options are often available, and as a commitment to conservation, the Zoo serves only Bird Friendly Coffee—the only 100% organic and shade-grown coffee certification available.
Group meals can be pre-ordered for 10 or more guests.
