The August Hit List: Albi, Compass Rose, DCity Smokehouse, and More

By

It is once more August in D.C., and while some have planned a convenient escape to Nantucket or whatever, the rest of us will confront this disrespectful heat ourselves, relishing their absence and the slight calm before schools (and traffic) is back in session.

The strategy is simple: Stay hydrated, calm and masked indoors, drink an afternoon spanish gin & tonic at Estadio, devour all the barbequed lamb at Albi, refuel with espresso martinis and brunch at Pearl Dive, and do less sweating on the Peloton, but more sweating over a bowl of kimchi ramen at Toki Underground. All this and more on your latest Hit List.
