House dining services looks for feedback on all nine eateries

Restaurant Associates surveying customers for feedback on ambiance, sanitation, price, quality and more.

Nov. 7—Before the cupcake, Daniel Minchew’s lunch in the Longworth Cafe, in Washington, D.C., totaled $5.50. Dessert pushed it to $7.75.

“Prices are fair — all of this for less than $8,” said Minchew, who ventures from his job in the Capitol Visitor Center to the House office complex a few times a week for breakfast and midday meals. His favorites come from the global food section, priced at 55 cents per ounce. Monday’s selection was Mexican.

“I tend to look at the international choices first, salads second,” Minchew said. Greens from the salad bar go for 48 cents per ounce. “I love the barbecue and brisket, but it’s just a little too heavy for me most days.”
