On a recent walk, we noticed this plaque recognizing one of many significant historic events to occur at The Willard Hotel (1401 Penn. Ave., NW). This is the location where Julia Ward Howe, after meeting with President Lincoln in November 1861, is said to have written “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” This is her best […]
We recently had the pleasure of enjoying a truly delicious lunch at the just re-opened Source (575 Penn. Ave, NW). Following a month-long closing at the end of the Summer, there’s a new look and revised menu to enjoy. One favorite from our recent trip that is perfect for lunch, dinner or a late-night snack, […]

The modern, airy space with open kitchen manages to be both inviting and hip. The menu is ever-changing […]

But previous visits to date had us thinking maybe some places and […]
A fun twist on our standby gin & tonic with fresh cilantro at The Oval Room (800 Conn. Ave., NW) is just what we need to cool down during these dog days of Summer. The restaurant is also featuring an entire menu featuring tomatoes that sounds delicious.
