Washington Post Gives You Their Best Bets for Eastern Market and Barracks Row

“Unless you live in the neighborhood, this section of Capitol Hill can be a bit of a world unto itself. So while many have strolled through the historic market hall on Seventh Street SE and waited in a long line for Market Lunch’s blueberry buckwheat pancakes, it’s easy for an outsider to overlook the intimate bistros and book shops that sit within the Eastern Market’s shadow.

And then there’s Barracks Row, on Eighth Street SE, a commercial strip that’s seen a bar-and-restaurant boom in recent years, transitioning from a strip marked by empty storefronts to a destination where one can stroll, eat, drink and shop a day away.”
