Art and Lunch Near "The Hill"

Saturday, 18 June 2011

Before lunch on Wednesday we walked through the Hirshhorn Museum's Sculpture Garden. It opened in 1974 and displays work from Europe and North America. The art dates from the 1880s to now.

The weather was perfect for a walk outside and we enjoyed gazing at the different sculptures and thinking, "Could we make that?" My favorite piece is pictured below. The rider looks so free.

After visiting the sculpture garden, it was time for our lunch reservation at the Old Ebbitt Grill. This is where everyone who works on "The Hill" seems to go. While we were there at least 10 people seemed to be standing near the host waiting for a table the entire time.

Megan previously lived in D.C. and knew about this hot-spot near the White House. She booked ahead of time and if you want to eat here, don't forget the reservation.

From the Old Ebbitt Grill's website: Established in 1856, it was a favorite of Presidents Grant, Cleveland, Harding and Theodore Roosevelt and is still a popular meeting spot for political insiders, journalists, celebrities and theater-goers. As a bonus, the food was really good!
