Where to eat
For cheap and tasty Ethiopian fare, Adams Morgan is the area to head to; a favourite here is Meskerem (2434 18th Street). You should also try the massive hot dogs and piled-high burgers at Ben's Chili Bowl (1213 U Street). For an absolute splash out, try the superbly crafted dishes at Komi (1509 17th Street), such as scallop with truffle emulsion, and spaghetti with sea urchin.
Art buffs have much to entertain them; the Smithsonian American Art Museum (8th and F) in particular has an unbeatable collection of American art. Music and theatre are easy to come by; for an evening of music in the USA’s oldest jazz supper club, head to Blues Alley (1073 Wisconsin Avenue).
