Between my love of supporting local businesses and eating delicious food, I am always on the hunt for a new favorite spot. Society Fair, located in Old Town Alexandria, is a personal favorite that really hits the spot (don’t miss the handmade chocolates-to die for!). The space is not only a sweet little shop filled with unique, gourmet eats, but also a wine bar, bakery, demo kitchen and butchery. Best of all- the space is available to host a variety of events.

Last week, I wrote about The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C., the famous Washington venue. Yet, just down the street, there is a lesser known but just a fabulous second property, The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown.
At the Georgetown location, Fahrenheit Ballroom is available for weddings and it is one of the most unique spaces in the city with loft-like ceilings, exposed steel beams and original red brick walls reminiscent of the hotel’s history as a turn-of-the-century brick factory structure that later served as an incinerator.

Many of you are looking for the perfect venue for your upcoming nuptials and I have a gem to share with you today that you just may not know about yet…The Rooftop Terrace of Charlie Palmer Steak at 101 Constitution Avenue NW has amazing food and beyond fabulous views of the Capitol and National Mall.
Next, with all of the recent holiday engagements, you may be thinking about the hot spots in town to celebrate. The Darlington House, just off of Dupont Circle, is the perfect venue as it combines elegant style with hip decor.
If you’re looking for that special place for a bridal shower, engagement party, or anniversary dinner, I highly recommend checking out Matisse. Located just north of the Tenleytown area on Wisconsin Avenue, this restaurant is wonderful in more ways than I can count. The service is impeccable. The design is so gorgeous. And the food is unbelievable. It is so chic, so filled with style. We went for brunch on Sunday, and I can’t wait to go back for dinner. This restaurant has been added to my list of D.C. Favorites!
