TAKE MY WORD
DJ Duo Thievery Corporation on D.C.
"We recorded our new album in Adams Morgan in Washington, D.C. At the end of the day, we'd often wind up at the Rumba Café (2443 18th St. NW, 202/588-5501). It's a bar with Brazilian bands and tango groups. The mojitos ($7) are great, and I also love the Patacón Rumba ($10), which is flank steak betweeen two mashed-up plantains with cilantro sauce."
--Rob Garza of downtempo DJ duo Thievery Corporation, whose latest album is The Cosmic Game
