vegan and vegetarian seasonal tacos for all at Chaia

take a stroll through georgetown!

walk along the waterfront and pit stop at Chaia, for some local, seasonal, delightful tacos (protip.. there is misfit juice on tap). continue your stroll (and get your shopping on) as you make your way up to the ladies at greenheart juice for a wholesome cold-pressed drink or probiotic coconut yogurt (boost that immune system!)

Gordy's Pickles are hand cut and hand packed. Pick some up at the Dupont Farmers Market on Sunday.

sunday funday at the Dupont Circle farmers market where you can sample all of the local cheesy, fruity delicacies. swing by Gordy’s Pickle Jar for some bloody mary mix to thank your cat sitter

delicious treats - meat and veggie options available - at On Rye 

spend an afternoon at the American History Museum and check out Julia Child’s Kitchen! you will surely work up an appetite there, so swing by the nearby and newly opened On Rye for a delightful vegetarian reuben and other delicious jewish treats (BABKA ICE CREAM SANDWICHES!!)

Bad Saint was recently named one of the Top 10 Restaurants of the Year by Bon Appetit Magazine

some of our dinner favorites:

Bon Appetit Top 10 restaurant winner Bad Saint is the most glorious Filipino food you’ve ever had. Note: be prepared to wait in line for hours before it opens. a great back-up plan is to dine at highly acclaimed Laotian restaurant Thip Khao. both restaurants are in the Columbia Heights neighborhood in NW DC.

if you’re into lists: our favorite plant-based blogger Alexandra Dawson highlighted her favorite vegetarian and vegan spots in DC with The New Potato (veggies are the best)


AND last but certainly not least, the inspiring women in service community of All In Service DC have rounded up some of the best restaurants in DC to open their doors to all visitors over Inauguration weekend and pledge to donate a portion of their proceeds to local nonprofits that keep our community thriving
