Restaurant Nora

I had dinner at Restaurant Nora with my friend and colleague Margie on 5-5-2017. The restaurant is an institution in D.C. and certainly within the organic food movement. My visit was bittersweet given that Nora closes on June 30th. I was lucky to get to experience it. Atmosphere: 3 out of 5 Food & Drink: 4 […]

Soi 38

I had lunch at Soi 38 with my friend/survey research idol Nancy on 4-21-2017. I don’t know how I’d never been here before given its proximity to both my old and new offices. Between the beautiful decor and delicious food, though, I will certainly make up for that in the future. Atmosphere: 5 out of […]
