Smoked and Stacked

I have friend at work that I love having lunch with because she’s always eager to try someplace new.  It’s so easy to fall in the typical chain trap, so when you find a new place, it’s like a little lunch vacation.  That’s what happened yesterday at Smoked and Stacked.  I noticed this place a…

Swizzler

I love food trucks. Correction, I love the concept of food trucks. I even thought of starting one myself, but I don’t eat at food trucks. Until now. Thanks to all the foodies on Instagram, I saw the most mouthwatering hot dog and tracked it down. It belonged to Swizzler. A food truck. I followed…

Kinship

During my mother’s visit, we were lucky enough to have a girl’s night out.  Miles was invited to a birthday sleepover, so it was time for us to hit the town.  We must have spent an hour on Yelp reviewing menus trying to decide where to go.  We both had particular tastes and they didn’t…

Alpha Pie House

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to a food truck, my friend and I spotted Alpha Pie House.  We thought it was a dessert/pie shop, but as we got a little closer we discovered it was really an authentic Greek pie shop.  I went in to grab a menu, but they didn’t have any,…

DGS Delicatessen

DGS Delicatessen is my favorite deli in DC. Ok, so it’s the only deli I’ve been to and I use the term deli loosely because it’s more of an artisan deli. There isn’t anything on the menu that I’ve tried so far that I haven’t liked. Their corned beef and pastrami are cut differently from…

Mango Tree

Since my office moved approximately two blocks from our original location, it’s become increasingly difficult to find a place to eat for lunch.  Walking back to our old area seems too far (no judging) and the food trucks are just beginning to discover the park across from our building as a great place to camp out. …

Poppabox

I will fully admit to being one of those people who’ve succumbed to the food porn on Instagram. I post a ton of food pics there myself.  Instagram and Yelp have become two of the biggest tools I use when trying to decide where to eat (I also subscribe to a ton of local food…

Brasserie Beck

I’m beginning to wonder if it’s possible to eat too many croque monsieur’s.  It’s one of my favorite sandwiches, so whenever I see one on the menu, I have to order it.  I feel like I’ve eaten at least three this summer, which normally wouldn’t be that much, but add that with doughnut testing, and…

Sticky Rice – Update

For those of you who don’t know, I tend to go to Sticky Rice on H Street whenever I’m in the mood for tater tots.  It’s really a sushi/noodle spot, but they have really good tots!  Even their sweet potato tots are really good and those are very hard to make.  Even sweet potato fries…

Columbia Room

I met up with an old friend last night for drinks.  It was a long overdue hangout.  He’s a huge fan of rooftop bars and put the onus on me to find a spot.  Such pressure!  I really couldn’t think of anything that was nearby, so we started looking at the bar map on yelp…

Provision 14

Ah, brunch time again. One of the little pleasures in life that I’m able to take advantage of while Miles is away for the summer.  I met up with a friend from my last job and prepared myself for an afternoon of eating at Provision 14. What first attracted me to Provision 14 was the…

DGBG

A couple of weeks ago my company hosted an event for Women in Tech. Assisting clients with logistics for various events is just one of the many hats I wear. I have to say, this is one aspect of my job that I really enjoy. I love getting to meet new people from various industries. As…
