Lunch Around The Library of Congress
25 years ago, the first time I lived in DC, this place was said to have the best sandwiches in town. I worked at 17th and Penn and sent our interns to mangialardo's to pick up our lunch orders.
A few weeks ago, I went back for the first time in decades and fond teir food to be as good as ever.
The Library has its own cafeteria.
OR explore the Capital Hill Historic District
Jimmy T's at 5th and East Capital Street gives you a chance to walk up one of Washington's most beautiful Streets.
Or walk over to Pennsylvania Avenue SE
In the 200 and 300 blocks you'll find everything from upscale Sonoma to the Tune-In (breakfast anytime), Burrito Brothers, Firehook, Cosi, Thai Roma, Starbucks, Hawk and Dove, Taverna, some pedestrian chinese, Pete's....
Hill staffers, local residents, tourists, maybe a Senator, occasional celebrity sightings, little bit of everything on the strip at lunchtime and after work.
