La Tomate

Having to deal with the sweltering humidity of summer days in DC means you are rewarded with beautiful nights, and if you’re really lucky some al fresco dining. La Tomate is one of the many restaurants in DC that have taken advantage of summer nights and have set out a dining area for its outdoor […]

Paolo’s Ristorante

I was meeting a few friends in Georgetown on a Friday evening a few weeks back and suggested Cafe Bonaparte, my new favorite restaurant in DC.  Of course I forgot to make reservations and found out that the wait was going to be in excess of an hour so we decided to head down the […]


An old friend who used to live in DC was in town the other day for a few days and apparently had begun craving the Matchbox sliders as his plane landed on the tarmac so insisted I meet him at the venue, located in Chinatown.  Although I had ordered takeout from Matchbox in the past […]


Capitol Hill keeps giving me good reasons to leave my Northwest haven and head crosstown and when I heard about Locanda I decided it was time for me to once again risk getting lost (which always seems to happen when I drive into Capitol Hill) and make another trip to Southeast.  You see, the search […]

As much as I sometimes do enjoy the faux Italian restaurant with endless breadsticks and salads, there is nothing like authentic Italian cuisine that makes you appreciate the simplicity of quality ingredients mixed with heart, soul, and passion. As a hot spot for politicians and celebrities alike, this Georgetown gem is THE recommended place by […]

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 […]

Sette Osteria

I’ve visited Sette Osteria a number of times over the past few months – for brunch, dinner and lunch. For me, Sette Osteria is not necessarily about a fine dining experience (there are very few truly good Italian restaurants in the DC area). It is more about a convenient, pleasant experience than anything else. Cost […]

Circa at Dupont

Circa at Dupont is a relatively new establishment located right in the heart of Dupont Circle. With a good menu, an indoor bar area, and outdoor seating it figures to be a solid addition to the Dupont Circle nightlife. Dean and I hit Circa on a whim after running a few games at Balance Gym.  […]
