19th Century bank building renovated in 2018 and opened as a food and beer hall. There's a taproom in the basement and multiple local kitchens in the main hall. Worth a visit just to get inside the amazing building and a photo of the ornate ceiling!

Sightseeing
Just a ten minute walk from our house this is a must-see. Everyone tells you to visit the rose garden, but check out the succulents as well. There are a number of memorials and, of course, great views of the Capitol building itself.

Great spot for independent or foreign movies (among others). It's old but charming, and we always grab a post-movie bite at the adjoining Tower Cafe (this place gets packed at brunch and prime time dinner hour, but is calmer after an evening movie).
