As the inauguration approaches, and threatens to turn our town into one giant parking lot, we’ll start scouring the town (well, the Web, too) to unearth the most interesting eats out there to celebrate Barack Obama’s first day in office.

This handy little compendium of ideas comes courtesy of ZagatBuzz, D.C. edition. Among other tidbits, ZagatBuzz notes:

At Fyve in the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, DC will get a taste of Hawaii (poke, macadamia-crusted mahi-mahi) in à la carte offerings or as a $48 prix fixe from January 13th–20th; PS 7’s is focusing on Illinois regional cuisine (who knew there was one?) in a four-course $65 prix fixe; and, finally, Asia Nine is rolling sushi with politics in mind, i.e., a lean, green Obama roll (filled with vegetables) and a Lame Duck roll (roasted duck, cucumber and soy nuggets).
