Acacia Bistro & Wine Bar is located in the corner of a blocky office building in the decidedly uncharming Van Ness stretch of Connecticut Avenue. The interior is modern, neat and tidy, leaving the focus on the contents of the huge wine list and the creative menu. The underlying theme is Mediterranean--so you can find a variety of tapas, charcuterie and cheese plates and fresh pasta dishes. At lunch, paninis and burgers are the stars of the show, along with a few, well-chosen entrées. With so few decent restaurants in the immediate area, Acacia Bistro is the one place where you can depend upon a solid meal and a fine glass of wine. There’s also an ample patio area for outside dining.

The Parva Restaurant Bar & Lounge is named for the Colombian word that translates to “best of the best.” By fusing recipes from their native Colombia with Peruvian and Argentine culinary techniques, the cooks at Parva uphold the high standards their name promises. Parva uses fresh seasonal ingredients in its made-from-scratch dishes, which range from creamy quinoa risotto to Argentine new york steak. Though Parva’s cuisine has roots in traditional Latin dishes, its ivory interior exudes modern style, with lounge-type seating offsetting plush booths where patrons can sip on Argentine malbecs and Spanish sangrias.

Chevy Chase Ballroom & DanceSport Center’s professional instructors draw on competitive dance backgrounds to guide group classes that groove through a range of styles. Latin beginners learn the basics of the cha-cha, merengue, and rumba, and the argentine tango and beginner salsa classes rehearse dance-specific fundamentals, gradually adding steps until sure-footed feet cut right through the ballroom's sleek new floor. Onlookers can watch from benches lined against the wall, observing dancers as they perfect their moves or sneakily scout for new partners in the mirrored wall lining the studio. Check the full schedule for class times.
