Like chocolate? Then you'll love CoCo. Sala, where they put the sweet stuff in almost everything, from bar bites and entrees to cocktails. Grab a seat at one of the two bars, settle into a low-slung couch, or to really impress your date, score a spacious table in the side dining room. The ambiance is equal parts exotic and swank, and by the time you split some bacon mac 'n' cheese (complete with chocolate-covered bacon) and a warm sticky toffee pudding cake, you'll totally forget about those nervous butterflies.
Where: CoCo. Sala, 929 F Street NW, 202-347-4265.
