Szechuan House Fusion Grill

I rarely venture out into the Capitol Hill area these days. It’s not that I don’t like the area – in fact, I love the area and I think it is just continuing to grow and thrive. The distance from Cleveland Park is what tends to keep me from venturing into Capitol Hill these days. […]

Commissary

A couple of weekends ago, Dean, Kamari and I headed over to meet for brunch at Commissary – an Eatwell DC restaurant located directly next to another Eatwell DC venue, Logan Tavern. The venue is complimentary is certainly complimentary in some ways (a bit more casual) however the differences are not substantial and I wonder […]

Huong Viet

Why can’t we have more places like Huong Viet in DC? Yes, I understand the economics, population diversity, and other factors of how Falls Church is different than Northwest DC but still, I want great tasting, easy and authentic Vietnamese food all within walking distance of Logan Circle. I know many of you go through […]

Logan Tavern

When I found out that a close friend of mine and her significant other were headed into DC for the night and wanted to grab dinner somewhere near Logan Circle I instantly thought of Logan Tavern. Granted, it had been quite some time since I had visited Logan Tavern but in a relatively short amount […]

Al Tiramisu

Although I love Italian Food, having had a slew of mediocre experiences over the past few years has really pushed Italian cuisine down on my list of preferences when eating out. So when I finally decided to try a new place, I tempered my expectations and chose Al Tiramisu in Dupont and I was glad […]
