Little Pearl occupies the former carriage house of the Old Naval Hospital, the Civil War-era property that was transformed six years ago into the Hill Center, an arts, cultural and education facility. From the team responsible for the Michelin-starred Pineapple and Pearls and Rose's Luxury, Little Pearl offers pastries, sandwiches and gelati by day in its coffee shop, and snacks that pair with boutique wine when it transforms to a swanky wine bar at night.  Closest Metro is Eastern Market.

Kōbō is the small chef's sushi counter inside of Sushiko in Chevy Chase that serves dishes that are even more focused and intimate. The sushi is closer to true edomae style, using red vinegar from Yokoi Jozo that utilizes sake leaves in the rice to make it a maroon color. A set menu called the Kappo is available for $160 per person in regular, vegetarian, and vegan options.  We went to enjoy the Winter Experience to celebrate the start of Keith's birthday weekend. Closest Metro is Friendship Heights.
