I will be visiting DC in September with my 70-something Mom. We will want to spend days seeing the sights, but I would like to stay someplace where there is good food. To me, good is simple food, well prepared, locally sourced, and made with some love. Mom can't tolerate spicy food so that will limit the ethnic choices.
My first inclination was to stay in the Capital Hill area, but from what I am seeing on this board, it might be tough to find nice bakeries for breakfast, and places that are walking distance or short cab rides for dinner... that it might be easiest to catch the Metro to see the sights during the day, but stay in Dupont Circle or Georgetown or ?
Help will be much appreciated!
