    This place has nice tables. Oaken, rich, sensual qualities that harken back to the age of pure craftsmanship. Ron Swanson would be proud.

    This is a hidden gem in DC at the corner of New York Ave. and 13th St. The art work, all by women, is magnificent, covering a wide range of art from different eras.

    They won't let you carry around coffee in the gift shop but they have a café 50 feet from Renaissance paintings. Kind of BS.
