Cactus Cantina

It was about a month ago that I received a call from a friend of mine who was down in Glover Park completing a photo shoot and wanted to meet up for lunch (along with the subject of her photo shoot). The weather was warm outside so I recommended Cactus Cantina thinking it would be […]

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 […]

Peacock Cafe

A couple of weekends ago I was meeting with a few friends for brunch in Georgetown and we were debating were to eat.  It was a bit too muggy for the waterfront and none of us really wanted to deal with the crowds and parking down there so we decided on upper Georgetown.  My first […]

Lauriol Plaza

Lauriol Plaza is one of those few places that has a very broad appeal and can be many things to many people. For example, it’s both neighborhoody as well as a destination for visitors and it can be very casual dining or a little more on the sophisticated side. I somewhat agree with most that […]

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 […]


I decided to venture out to Cleveland Park on a particularly dull night to see if I could uncover a tasty establishment to lift my spirits. Although I arrived close to 10, the restaurant was still packed with hungry customers and with more coming through the door.  Seeing the guests pile in was what sold […]

Good Stuff Eatery

The DC version of the Battle of the Burgers has recently started and after reviewing the best burger brackets, I felt incomplete (actually more like robbed) that I haven’t had the burgers at a few of the spots being considered. To remedy the situation, it’s burgers for me for the next few weeks and I […]
