Barbara just returned from the inauguration in Washington, DC and had a chance to do some DC dining along the way. Barbara suggests that it’s easy (and safe) to get around the city by Metro.
For Italian Barbara recommends Chef Fabio Trabocchi’s Fiola in Downtown.
For a taste of New Orleans Barbara suggests Bayou Bakery Coffee Bar & Eatery in Arlington. The proprietor is a really experienced pastry chef.
For amazing steamed mussels Barbara’s choice is Brasserie Beck, a contemporary Belgian brasserie in Washington, DC.
