Shaw is the “has-it-all” central neighborhood of D.C. Already one of its hippest communities, Indian summer days and crisp fall nights turn up the electricity. The foodie Shaw restaurants, cool local shops, concert halls and rich African-American history truly offer something for everyone. Be part of the excitement and culture that is Shaw. Here are some great places to start: DINE IN THE ALLEY The Dabney, at 122 Blagden Alley NW, sits in the heart of Shaw’s ally historic district. Occupying a row house from the late 1800s, the vibe inside The Dabney feels like a cozy ski lodge. The rich dark wood of the tables, chairs and floors is in perfect harmony with the original brick wall behind the bar. That same authentic character is the basis of their Modern American food. The Dabney boasts that they know the names and faces of the people who grow their produce and provide their proteins. If you like delicious, locally sourced food, this is your place!
