The Essence of WASHINGTON

POWER. GRABBING IT, being close to it, trading it, talking about who has it and who doesn’t— for many Washingtonians, that’s what defines DC. As a result, this image of the capital city is so often broadcast to the nation and the world. In this issue of Capitol File, we’ve examined power in Washington through a standout collection of topical features and compelling profiles. Flip through to read about captains of industry and thinkers who are getting us talking, or about politicos and media mavens who are changing the culture and landscape of our city and country. Rep. Eric Cantor, Cecilia Rouse, Jay Carney, Jake Tapper, Jason Grumet and Cathy Lanier are just a few whose words, actions and personalities caught our eye this year.

Also in this issue, you’ll find an insider’s look at where the movers and shakers eat and drink, and how they dress up and play. Check our rundown of the top tables at DC’s best restaurants, and peruse fashion editor Madalyn Rothman’s nod to the new power wardrobe. And for a look inside one of the District’s most talked-about events of the year, pick up our summer issue—due out June 18—to pore over photos from Capitol File’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Afterparty.
