Rare is it that a restaurant switches daily from your own living room to a bar right off of U St. It’s rarer still to find said restaurant serving nearly 100% home-baked goods, championing a(n adorable) blind dog, and offering specials on cookies and milk. Sounds pretty magical, right? Enter: Blind Dog Cafe at Darnell’s, one of D.C.’s newest popups designed to bring you local food and the kind of laid-back ambiance you’d find in your own home.
