Tongues must be constantly educated with new tastes and textures to keep them from turning to a life of crime in back alleys populated by Twinkie kingpins and cheap breakfast burritos. Keep tongues well rounded with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gourmet fare at Columbus Inn on Pennsylvania Avenue. Established in a post-Revolutionary structure that dates back to 1798, the Columbus Inn serves imaginative gourmet dishes in a historic American setting. The menu is studded with traditional entrees like tender filet mignon ($24 for 6 ounces, $32 for 10 ounces) and modern choices like sesame-crusted tuna ($25), served alongside bok choy and basmati rice. Midday hunger pangs get ameliorated with the Columbus Inn's gourmet pizzas ($10-$14) and sandwiches ($9-$14), and each Sunday comes attached to a delightful brunch buffet.
