2200 Block : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
This gently sloped portion of Massachusetts Avenue, flanked by attached town houses, provides a pleasant entry to Sheridan Circle. Occupying a choice corner lot, the limestone mansion at no. 2200 houses the embassy of Luxembourg. Completed in 1909 at a cost of approximately $92,000, the building incorporates characteristic Beaux-Arts features: symmetrical design, a rusticated first floor, arched windows, and a mansard roof rising above a stone balustrade. The embassies of Togo and the Sudan are located at nos. 2208 and 2210 respectively. At no. 2230 stands the smallest of the four Embassy Row residences. Completed in 1907, this brick-faced row house was designed in the so-called Chateauesque manner-an eclectic style briefly in vogue around the turn of the century. With elegant facades on both Massachusetts Avenue and Sheridan Circle, no. 2234 was erected in 1909 as a private residence. Since 1949 the building has housed the embassy of Ireland. The freestanding structure across the avenue at no. 2221 is the embassy of Greece.
