Roofer’s Union

I had dinner at Roofer’s Union on 8-12-2017. Okay fine it was my second dinner of the evening but when I found myself around the corner  I had to go in! The restaurant is upstairs in a building in Adam’s Morgan. This is the view from the entrance at the top of the stairs. The […]

Jack Rose Dining Saloon

I had dinner at Jack Rose on 8-12-2017. I actually didn’t realize they had food until the Guide came out so I was excited to check it out! Part of why I didn’t realize they served food is because they’re so well-known for their whisky collection. And speaking of said collection, look at the bottles […]

Pearl Dive Oyster Palace

I had a great brunch at Pearl Dive with my girlfriends Katie and Kathy on 8-12-2017. The food was good but let’s be honest: meeting Jeff Black was one of the highlights of this entire Mission!! If you’ve ever walked by Pearl Dive you’ve likely seen people hanging out in their awesome outdoor bar/patio. At […]

The Royal

I had lunch at the Royal on 8-11-2017. The food was awesome but Chef Cable was by far the highlight! The Royal is an all day restaurant located in LeDroit park that serves great specialty coffee drinks by day and cocktails by night. Since I was there for lunch there were people on laptops scattered […]

What a fun meal! I had dinner at Chiko with my girlfriend Ruth on 8-9-2017. The restaurant is fast casual (read: order at the counter, seat yourself) but they actually do a tasting menu as well! Love the bold colors and design. Speaking of design how awesome are these neon signs? They also had the […]

I had brunch at Kapnos with my little lady on 8-5-2017. It was a nice meal and very kid friendly. I definitely want to go back for dinner though since I don’t feel like I got to experience everything they have to offer. Atmosphere: 3 out of 5 Food & Drink: 3 out of 5 […]

Birds Eye Sandwiches*

Birds Eye Sandwiches isn’t technically in the Michelin Guide except it’s part of Doi Moi, which is, so I’m writing about it anyway. I’ve been here a few times and most recently had an awesome lunch on 8-4-2017. Basil Tea Punch (cachaça, basil, lemongrass, citrus, ginger). This was out of control good. It’s so perfectly […]

I had dinner at Maketto on 7-27-2017. I wasn’t really sure what to expect since it’s a restaurant attached to a retail shop. And while it looked sort of hisptery there was nothing pretentious or scene-y about it. The vibe was really chill and the food was outstanding! Atmosphere: 4 out of 5 Food & […]

Lupo Verde

I had dinner at Lupo Verde with coworkers on 7-24-2017. This has been on my list for a while and I’m so glad to have finally gone! I don’t seem to eat Italian that often and sometimes you just need some pasta in your life. This certainly did the trick and they have so many […]

minibar by José Andrés

This is the story of one of the most exciting nights of my life. On 7-14-2017 I was supposed to board a flight to Lisbon for a week in Portugal for work. Unfortunately my flight was canceled and I was devastated because I would be missing my birthday dinner at 100 Maneiras in Lisbon. That’s […]
