Finally, a bit of a walk but well worth it: Bread Furst is a James Beard Award winning local bakery created by local chef Mark Furstenberg. Get there early, especially on weekends, but don't take your laptop - it is a place for eating, socializing, or picking up pastries not doing office work. They have a schedule of their breads: https://www.breadfurst.com/breads

This isn't really a restaurant, but it has delicious fresh pizza (pick up only, though you can order ahead) and a wonderful selection of fresh and frozen Italian food. Picking up the pizza is a two person affair - one to go in and pick up the pizza, and the other to drive around the block.

We were regulars at their U Street location when we lived near there. We haven't tried the uptown restaurant yet but can recommend their great pizzas, salad and selection of beer.

Besides the Whole Foods Market in Tenleytown, and the huge 24 hour Giant on Wisconsin and Macomb, these stores are within walking distance.

Walking and Bicycle Trails
Rock Creek Park has numerous trails perfect for biking, jogging, or dog walking. Just walk down the hill past the old spring house to connect to the bike trail at Peirce Mill, and the side trail to Melvin Hazen Park which will return you to Connecticut Avenue. Save some energy if you plan to come back up the hill - it is long and steep!
Just down the hill is Peirce Mill and Rock Creek Park, site of an extensive network of bicycle and hiking trails maintained by the National Park Service. They provide an interactive map here: https://www.nps.gov/rocr/planyourvisit/maps.htm

For a longer walk, the National Zoo is down Connecticut Avenue. The stars are the pandas, but it also includes a beautiful aviary and tropical forest, and sea lions who are usually fun to watch. The rear entrance opens into Rock Creek Park, so it is possible to make a loop and return along the Rock Creek trail.
