If you are accustomed to the changing pace in the D.C. restaurant scene, then sure you have noticed the sporadic elements of progressive metropolis along 14th Street. Now the foodie culture bubble seems to have shifted from the once bestowed locations of prime and proper Georgetown to cluster of locations rampant around borderline culture hubs. The Logan Circle area has always been a passerby attraction aside from those that either lived relatively close by or ventured away from the downtown bustling crowds to grab a sight of fresh air.
