Makes me homesick for DC – I used to live in Washington DC and this is one of the places I miss the very most! A wide selection of books and a menu that can't be beat. Whenever I visit it's definitely a must stop on my list. Great for dates too.

Great bookstore and great restaurant – This is a fun bookstore/restaurant combo in Dupont- less than a block from the metro. The restaurant is a great place for a snack after a night out in Dupont- the trick is to know that you have to ask your server for a coin to get into the…
