As the name suggests, this classy little restaurant above its more casual street-level counterpart, Von's, prides itself on its seafood selection. The menu features jumbo shrimp and the fresh catch of the day, but also offers less aquatic alternatives, including a variety of steak, chicken and pasta dishes. Overlooking the friendly arts district of the Glebe, Flipper's attracts a local business crowd for lunch and is a popular date location in the evenings.
