the New New Hampshire Avenue


“While feasting on the Indian food here, it's easy to see there really is also a cultural feast going on.
Walking around I see people wearing all sorts of different clothes and speaking many different languages.”

--Doug Barry, fan of South Indian restaurants and grocery stores
