Floriana Mercury Grill is located at 1602 17th Street NW. It has one of the best reputations in town… as a wonderful Italian restaurant with consistent service and great prices.

Logan Tavern is located at 1423 P Street NW and is one of the pioneering restaurants in the revival of the 14th Street corridor. Always a good bet for a pleasant meal, with a diverse menu.

HR-57 is located at 1610 14th Street NW. A favorite of mine, it is not really a place to eat, but a wonderful place to fill the spirit with great live jazz  music. You can bring your own liquor or allow them to serve you. There are some finger foods available.

Free Stuff: Los Dias de los Muertos Celebration at Smithsonian


Free in DC has listings of lots of great free things to see and do in Washington. Here is another one from Free in DC

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the National Museum of American History are co-sponsoring a celebration of the Latin American holiday Los Días de los Muertos (Days of the Dead), with a two-day family-friendly event at the National Museum of the American Indian Mall Museum.

The Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe will feature a special menu for the weekend, including roasted chicken with a vanilla-cinnamon mole sauce, two sides, and pan de muertos (a special sweet bread made in honor of the occasion).

By the way, here is what Wikipedia has to say about Día de los Muertos:

The Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos in Spanish) is a holiday celebrated mainly in Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage (and others) living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and relatives who have died. The celebration occurs on the 1st and 2nd of November, in connection with the Catholic holy days of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day which take place on those days. Read entire post.
