Now that Mitchell and Tim Gold own a loft in Washington, they are spending more time enjoying their neighborhood and beyond. Here are some of their favorite local shops, restaurants and sights.

Busboys and Poets, 2021 14th St. NW. “Great for breakfast,” Mitchell says.

Jefferson Memorial, “Last spring Tim and I visited the memorials and cherry blossoms. I’ve done it many times and never tire of it. We can’t wait for friends to visit who haven’t been to D.C. in years and take them,” Mitchell says.

Library of Congress, 101 Independence Ave. SE. “Anyone can get a library card and sit in the reading room, preferably reading something, but the architecture can be extremely distracting,” Tim says.

Lincoln Memorial, “I like to go at 2 a.m., when most tourists have gone to bed. No better place to contemplate life . . . sitting on the steps, looking out toward the Capitol dome,” Tim says.

Miss Pixie’s Furnishings & Whatnot, 1626 14th St. NW. “Miss Pixie’s has just that extra little bit of funkiness I’m often looking for to make a room fun,” Mitchell says.

Ristorante Posto, 1515 14th St. NW. “Perfect pastas. But I also need places that have pleasant, modern decors. Posto is perfectly understated,” Mitchell says.

Second Story Books, 2000 P St. NW. “I love browsing through their used books,” Tim says.

Smithsonian National Postal Museum, 2 Massachusetts Ave. NE. “It’s housed in a beautiful building designed by Daniel Burnham, who also designed Union Station across the street,” Tim says.

The Source, Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at the Newseum, 575 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. “We enjoy the look of it and the food,” Mitchell says.

The home and design coverage of Jura Koncius has taken her inside hundreds of homes, from tiny studios in Penn Quarter to country castles in Warrenton. Jura also hosts the Home Front live chat, Thursdays at 11 a.m. ET.
