Washington D.C.

Our nation's capital - so monumental! This city is filled with history and women taking charge, including 21 U.S. senators and 104 Congresswomen. Yes Way, ladies! D.C. is also home to some serious eats served up by fierce females in the hospitality industry. Serving our nation's top officials, it's no secret that D.C.'s restaurants, stores and watering holes are on point.
