Food scene
Welcome to Union Market, DC’s hippest feasting ground, a revived mid-century produce- and meat-selling bazaar that holds food stalls, informal restaurants and kitchenware boutiques that’d impress even Top Chef competitors. Since it was restored and reopened in 2012, the industrial-cool space has grown to include 40-plus vendors, from pop-up dumpling stands to permanent fixtures like Buffalo & Bergen, a throwback, Brooklyn diner-inspired spot where you can munch bagels and slurp egg creams at a long bar. Other businesses offer takeout to eat at indoor or outdoor tables; try TaKorean for addictive bulgogi beef tacos and Puddin' for decadent shrimp ‘n' grits. Just know that, on weekends, the place is justifiably jammed. Make sure to check out all of our can't miss food experiences at Union Market.

The future of dining probably looks something like this hybrid cafe/men’s-streetwear shop/Southeast Asian restaurant—retail-and-restaurant combos are popping up everywhere right now. Mostly, we’re here for Erik Bruner-Yang’s take on Taiwanese and Cambodian cuisines. An order of pork or leek-and-mushroom bao is a no-brainer, and spicy lamb noodles are an obvious temptation. That said, we can never say no to the fried chicken. Big enough for two or more, the extra-crispy breasts are livened with Szechuan peppercorns, pickled cabbage, and a heavy drizzle of sweet caramelized fish sauce that soaks into hunks of baguette. Moderate.

Sightseeing
Situated on the Anacostia River and 1 mile from Eastern Market, the Navy Yard area has been making quite a name for itself these past few years, with a mix of dining, shopping, and loads of outdoor activities. Here’s why you need to check out this southeast treasure. The area has plenty of great cafes and restaurants, but Bluejacket tops them all. Out front, there’s a dog-friendly patio with Edison-bulb string lights and picnic tables. Inside, there’s a large industrial-style dining room with a rotating selection of beers and an extensive food menu that has something for everyone, from boards of housemade pickles to falafel burgers. One of this area’s most unique attractions is the Trapeze School. It hosts 12 classes for all skill levels of gymnasts, from juggling to acrobatics. You can buy a ticket for just one activity, or purchase a membership to hone your trapeze skills over a few weeks. Passes start at $50. Capitol Riverfront features water jets and a wading pool to help you beat the heat. On sunny weekends, you’ll find tons of DC residents and tourists alike splashing around and enjoying snacks at the nearby picnic tables, so pack a PB&J and some sunblock for a great afternoon. Whaley’s Raw Bar and Restaurant opened its trendy Rosé Garden just in time for summer. With pink-striped umbrellas, lush potted plants, and a view of the Anacostia, this is an Instagrammer’s dream. The menu includes a frozen gin cocktail, pina colada, and 10 different rosés by the glass or bottle. Every Friday evening from May to September, you can treat your ears to a free concert series on the riverfront. The shows start at 6:30pm and include local rock bands, jazz ensembles, and, maybe best of all, a Journey cover band.

Always specify NW / NE / SW / SE
The city is broken up into quadrants and many (if not all) street names can be duplicated over all 4 of the quadrants. That makes it EXTREMELY important for you to ALWAYS specify the quadrant you are looking to end up in. Because NW is on the opposite side of the city as SE and it can be the difference between a 15 minute ride or a 45 minute ride. Be sure to note when entering in your apps North West (NW) / North East (NE)/ South West (SW) / South East (SE)
