Ranking fifth in diverse dining hot spots in a recent study by Trulia, D.C. had its best neighborhoods serving for food and drink ranked by Thrillist. Coincidentally, these same neighborhoods are hot spots for housing, too

D.C. home prices increased 9.8 percent in August from a year earlier to a median sale price of $576,500, according to a new Redfin report. August sales surged 24.8 percent compared to last year. Some of the sales surge may be attributed to closings that were pushed into August from July, which had fewer business days than normal.
