top picks in northern Georgetown

We're going to stay 10 days in Georgetown in July; Our home is located North Georgetown University, precisely Hall Place NW.

Would you experts be kind enough to share your favorites in this area: restaurants, bars, shops, things to do, places to visit? Thanks!

I think that area is called Glover Park

Washington National Cathedral is nearby.

Looks like a Sushi Ko is nearby. I believe that is a well rated restaurant. http://www.sushikorestaurants.com/

Yes it is just south Glover Park. Thanks, Sushiko has a tempting menu, not only sushis...

Wisconsin Ave. right near there has always had good restaurants, though they've turned over enough that I don't think I can give a current recommendation. You can just stroll and select. Also head a bit further north on Wisc. for Cafe Deluxe. The Whole Foods near Hall will serve you well for groceries and take-out. Dumbarton Oaks is nearby and has beautiful gardens and a small, worthwhile museum. It's worth visiting the WMATA website to learn the bus routes and schedules that will get you to Georgetown and to the Metro. Mass Ave. near Hall is Embassy Row, check newspaper listings for events and exhibits they often host.

I used to live in Glover Park - great restaurants! I recommend:

*Surfside (tacos, very fresh)

*Rockland's Barbeque (local chain)

http://www.rocklands.com/

*Bourbon (great bar, brunch)

*Two Amys (pizza, a little further up north like Cafe Deluxe... always a wait during peak hours)

http://www.2amyspizza.com/

*Sushi-Ko, which has already been recommended.

I'm getting hungry....

The Cathedral is fun if that's you're type of thing. Your'e also not that far from the National Zoo, which is free and enjoyable on a nice day -- it's a short cab ride away.

For shopping, I'd walk south on Wisconsin (or take the Circulator) to the boutique shops on the northern side of Georgetown. Once you get further and further south, it's more chains. The shopping closer to where you'll be is much more unique.

Also a fun offbeat one: Klingle Road, heading down to the west bank of Rock Creek from the neighborhood east of the Cathedral. Think Logan's Run. Parkway access road temporarily closed by flood damage decades back, kept closed by political stalemate over whether to re-open, and nature is taking its course.
