9. The Wydown 1924 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20009 (U Street)

This coffee bar from two brothers is the place to go for a good cup of Joe, likely due to the standards they’ve put in place: a simple but tasty Italian-style espresso menu and a no-skim-milk policy -- it ruins the texture, they say. Its short and sweet coffee menu includes well-made basic espresso drinks, drip coffee, pour-overs, and teas. There’s also a rotating assortment of house-made baked goods, including scones, cupcakes, and cookies. Follow them on social media if you want to be in the know for upcoming coffee tastings.

12. Tico 1926 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20009 (U Street)

The bright and graffic graffiti murals are the first clues that your visit to Tico, an outpost of original Boston tapas bar, is going to be a colorful one. Inspired by Schlow's travels in Latin America, Spain, and Mexico, Tico offers bold small plates with Latin leanings, like roasted cauliflower with cotija cheese, black bass ceviche, and a velvety tres leches cake for dessert. There are multiple taco varieties too, but what keeps fans coming back for more are the addictive hibiscus margaritas.

13. Denizens Brewing Co 1115 E West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910 (Silver Spring)

Denizens Brewing Co is quite the set up in Silver Spring, complete with a beer garden and barbecue -- since you know there are few things better in life than chowing down on a pulled pork sandwich while drinking craft beer and playing cornhole outside. Head brewer Jeff Ramirez makes super-innovative brews, and if you grab a seat inside you can hear, see and smell the brewing process. The real pro move here is to just ask the bartender what bottles they have available... sometimes, you’ll seriously luck out.
