I spent my past weekend exploring parts of DC I haven't been to in awhile and found hidden gems in Dupont Circle. I haven't been to Dupont in awhile and was pleasantly surprised by how much it has changed.
Few places I went to and would recommend for eats: Mandu, Tabard Inn, Shake Shack, Dolcezza
Coffee: La Colombe (not in DuPont but nearby)
I don't go into DC often but find myself amazed at how much DC has to offer. Oh and also Sundays are a perfect day to go into Dupont Circle because they have a farmers market - I love supporting and shopping local.
