The Best of The Hill, According to the City Paper

Every year the Washington City Paper publishes its “Best Of” list, sharing the results of their Readers’ Poll and staff picks.  And every year, more and more of the Hill is proudly represented.  I was particularly pleased to see how many of the staff picks included some of our neighborhood gems this year.  Congrats to all of our neighborhood winners!

Be sure to read the descriptions included for each staff pick on the Washington City Paper’s website for a bit more insight into why they chose what they did.  Some of the write ups are sure to put a smile on your face (and some of their categories will definitely make you laugh).  And the list of Hill picks are:
