Live the European life in the Central West End. Have breakfast at the Chase before buying a mystery at Big Sleep, a newspaper at Daily Planet, a fine single-malt at Brennan’s. Hit the antique stores—don’t miss West End Antiques, Rothschild’s and Sambeau’s. Browse at Arlene Lilie and Centro. Sit by the Maryland Plaza fountain, linger on Coffee Cartel’s huge patio, have a fragrance mixed for you at Cassie’s and browse Left Bank Books, the independent holdout. Sit in the late afternoon sun and drink Welsh ale at Llywelyn’s—or, in winter, by the fireplace with a Double Dragon ale at Dressel’s. Eat dinner at Bar Italia and finish with a martini at Sub Zero or a chocolate Pot de Crème at Bissinger’s.
