When the weather in Washington, D.C., is delightfully sunny and dry, I can think of no better way to spend an afternoon than at Dunbarton Oaks Gardens. Tucked away in the highest point of this elegant neighborhood, you'll find the onetime "country...

What I love about the Tabard Inn is that most D.C. visitors and transplants have never heard of it, yet this place requires a brunch reservation 2 weeks in advance. The Tabard Inn is historic and creaky. The corridors are lined with quirky rooms...
