“Dear PoP,

It’s been two years since we moved from our lovely abode on the 700 block of Girard St NW to my Midwestern homeland. And I’m finally coming back for a visit next month and was hoping you could give me your Top 10 List of “Must Sees” in the Logan Circle, U Street, Columbia Hgts, and Petworth neighborhoods. I do check in with the blog periodically, but would be much obliged if you and your readers could give me some pointers about the best bars, restaurants, shops, galleries, rehabs, that may have sprung up since July 2007. Thanks for your help!”

#1 – The Franciscan Monastery.

#2 – Room 11

#3 – Social

#4 – 1905

#5 – Mid City Caffe

#6 – Fusion

#7 – Lincoln Cottage

#8 – Pete’s Apizza and/or Red Rocks

#9 – Bloom Bars

#10 – Pho 14

I tried to name some of the newer spots (with the exception of the Franciscan Monastery in Brookland). What would you guys add? Any other must see spots in other neighborhoods? You can find a discussion we had on must visit spots throughout the city here.
