Good cafes to hit in Palisades/Foxhall/MacArthur Blvd area of DC?

Ziv | Dec 29, 201910:26 AM     5

I moved a while back & I am now just 8 or 9 minutes from Palisades/Foxhall at Arizona & MacArthur. The only place I have gone to in that area is Kotobuki, which I like quite a bit. The sushi there has been consistently pretty good.
I drove over in the rain today for lunch and hit Wagshalls on Massachusetts for the brisket sandwich. It was good but not great. There was not a lot of brisket on the sandwich, but what there was tasted pretty good. That slightly smokey flavor is a treat though the chips and pickle were a bit lame. I was wondering if there were any hidden gems in the Wagshalls menu that I should try?
In the same vein, are there any cafes that aren't expense account expensive in that area that are worth checking out on or near MacArthur? Or some that are on Massachusetts? Any good happy hours or any cafes with daily specials that are worth trying?
I have to admit that I have always wanted to try Black Salt but haven't gotten around to it. I probably will now since I am "in the area". The Provencal Seafood Stew there sounds like something I could enjoy on a cold day like today. Any other winners on the Black Salt menu?
