I have just moved to DC from New York. My favorite pastime in NY was finding every gourmet shops, chocolate stores, bakery, hotels with free apples, wine tastings or any place to pick up free samples. I had it so well mapped out that I barely had to walk a block without ducking into a shop for a sample of something or other.
Now, I have to start from scratch in DC! Any suggestions for your places to pick up some tasty samples in DC?
