Here’s my friend Elizabeth’s recomendations for Must-Visit DC:

Peregrine Espresso

http://peregrineespresso.com/

Their coffee is amazing! and they individually brew each cup. When you walk in you don’t feel like you’re in DC at all. And it’s right by Eastern Market which is really fun.

2 Amys Pizza

Their pizza is very authentic and so, so delicious.

Pitango Gelato

Their gelato is extremely tasty and it’s made from grass-fed organic milk.

Teaism

I love their Palak Paneer and their salty oat cookies are famous for a good reason. And their star of Africa rooibus tea is amazing!!

I’ll add more stops when I get a chance.

And here’s my iPhone photo slide-show with commentary in captions:

  3. [...] After the Guayaki – Paraguay luncheon and speeches, I sat around a table (with Adam Shake, and also David DiFrenza of Treehugger, the Green Giant of today’s green journalism), and closely questioned two of the founders: Alex Pryor, and David Karr, whom I had known a little bit for a long time.
