Though the culture and dynamic of the city has changed since the Obamas have departed — and we’re all shedding tears about it — there are places that still encompass what once was known as “Chocolate City.” From traditional soul food eateries to classic DC staples that have been ingrained in the community for decades, the district has something for every palate. – Kimberly Wilson of Essence Magazine
