5:15pm // Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, 14th St. corridor // Watching the evening rush hour and enjoying the crisp October weather with a glass of rosé at Pearl Dive’s lively sidewalk bar. Discussion focused on our latest DIY adventures in auctions, antiquing, refinishing and reupholstering. Lately, there’s been no shortage of culinary activity during 14th Street’s restaurant renaissance — we’ve enjoyed amazing bites like the mushroom tart at Le Diplomate and the wood-fired pizza at Etto. We can’t wait to sample the South Asian cuisine at Doi Moi and to share tapas around Barcelona‘s outdoor fireplace. What new DC hotspots are you eager to try this fall?
