In D.C., all roads lead to the Capitol building, just as Pierre Charles L’Enfant designed it back in 1791. The United States’ capital is chock full of must–see monuments, free museums and tangible history. It’s also one of most diverse cities in the country – it has the nation’s largest Ethiopian and El Salvadoran communities – making international dining de rigueur.
