Legal Sea Bar

On the mezzanine level of Union Station you'll find Legal Sea Bar. If the name seems familiar, it's because this new bar and restaurant in the transportation hub is from the same folks behind D.C. Legal Sea Food in Chinatown.

The rectangular bar is reminiscent of airport bars, and it boasts the same wine, beer and basic liquor selection as its predecessor. The food is designed for those in a hurry, with bites like clam chowder, lobster rolls, fried clams and fish and chips dominating the menu. There's also entrees of haddock, lobster casserole and seared salmon for those with a more leisurely schedule.

Little Havana DC is a Cuban spot that recently opened at 3704 14th St. NW in Petworth. Inspired by Latin cuisine, the restaurant offers dishes like empanadas, seafood paella and grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, alongside Cuban classics like ropa vieja (shredded beef over rice) and the Cubano sandwich.

The bar program uses white and aged rum with fruit, coconut and syrups to create Caribbean-inspired cocktails. Beer and wine are also available.

The Dough Jar

Finally, wander over to 1332 Wisconsin Ave. NW in Georgetown and you'll find The Dough Jar. It's a spot to get the uncooked cookie dough you might have snuck as a child, but, in this case, a server gladly scoops it for you.

Here, cookie dough scoops can be served with toppings and a side of ice cream. Signature flavors include Sugar Sookie Confetti (sugar cookie dough plus sprinkles) and the gluten-free Monster Cookie (oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips and M&Ms).
