This small restaurant is just a few doors down on the block, opened by a couple in the neighborhood. It's cheap and fast, great for a quick bite and a beer. Highly recommend the cholitos!

Delicious coffee, nice atmosphere, and you can catch the Bloomingdale farmer's market outside on Sundays! This is a great place for a quick bite, if you need to do some work on a laptop, or to read a book.

This restaurant was one of the first hot spots to open in the neighborhood several years ago. They have good food and a great selection of beer, wine, and mixed drinks. I'd recommend for brunch, especially because they have $15 bottomless mimosas/bloody marys! It can get crowded during busy times.

This is an Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. It's probably the highest price point ($20-$30 for an entree), but it's quite good. I'd recommend making a reservation if you want to go during the dinner rush.

This is my favorite pizza place in the city. They make their own dough and use high quality ingredients. The pizzas are lovingly named after the different neighborhoods in DC (my favorite is the Shaw pizza with pesto sauce, prosciutto, baby arugula, and cherry tomatoes, mmm!). You can order takeout or they have a few tables and they serve alcohol as well.

This is a mediterranean restaurant with great food that is not usually crowded. It can be on the pricey side, but I'd recommend going for happy hour (Sun-Fri 4-7pm) because they have a great selection of food and drinks for cheap. My favorite is the mücver.

This is a poultry themed restaurant that is close to my heart because I used to work here. The food is delicious (executive chef won on the show Chopped!) and they have very creative cocktails. Lots of patio space. Happy hour is available every day!

Drinks & Nightlife
This is our favorite dive bar in the city and happens to be our local neighborhood hangout as well. The drinks are cheap, you can get a NattyBoh and shot for $5, but don't expect any fancy cocktails. They don't have food, but you can bring in outside food or get delivery. Great soul music on the [free] jukebox and they have local DJs on the weekends. Local band Granny and the Boys plays on Sunday evenings. Note: this bar is cash only, they have an ATM.

This is a Chicago sports bar. If there is a game on, it can get quiet crowded and loud, but where there are not games, it's just a great dive bar. They have hot dogs and cheap beer. There's a roofdeck upstairs with a pool table. Note: this bar is cash only, they have an ATM.

Lots of big artists who come through DC play at this venue. It's nice because it's relatively small and can be a pretty intimate experience. They have drinks and food, but they are a little on the pricey side.
