Located in Penn Quarter, Nando’s newest flagship restaurant is helping the people of Washington, DC find their spicy place, one piece of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken at a time. Always fresh, never frozen, our chicken is marinated in PERi-PERi for 24-hours, and flame-grilled to order in the heat level of your choice. And a little secret you may not know…we partner with small-scale farmers in Southern Africa to source our authentic PERi-PERi chilis.
Nando's originated in a small town in South Africa in 1987 and has grown to include locations across the globe, including our home here in Penn Quarter. Within walking distance to the National Portrait Gallery, Capital One Arena, Ford’s Theatre, and the DC Convention Center, Nando’s Penn Quarter is an ideal spot for happy hour, private parties, and upscale, casual dining before the show or game. Share and enjoy our delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
