Rasika

May 16, 2010 Restaurants

A few weeks ago, I took my boyfriend out for dinner at Rasika to celebrate his 31st birthday. The weather in D.C. was still cool and crisp, perfect for a night of slow-cooked, comforting Indian cuisine. We had heard rave reviews of Rasika and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. This [...]

Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons

May 6, 2010 Restaurants

Sunday night I was invited to an event at the Kennedy Center with friends. Prior to the show, we decided on a little “pre-party” at Four Seasons restaurant Bourbon Steak. The name of the restaurant intimidated my veggie palate. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to eat anything on the menu and as a result, [...]

Valentine’s day at Founding Farmers

February 15, 2010 Restaurants

Last year, my boyfriend and I celebrated V-day here on D.C. Capitol Hill. We were not fans. The food was underwhelming for the price. But, I’m not gonna dwell on meals past. This year, we tried a new restaurant that has been all the buzz in D.C. lately. The restaurant is called Founding Farmers, located [...]

Jetties Sandwich Shop

January 30, 2010 Restaurants

A few months back, after a long morning of hiking, my boyfriend and I ducked into Jetties. We were ravenous and in search of sustenance that would replenish our energy and quiet our screaming muscles. We had heard good things about Jetties and decided to give it a try. We walked up to this adorable [...]

Sunday brunch at Busboys and Poets

December 7, 2009 Restaurants

Washingtonians loooove their brunch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a people so obsessed with fasting through the morning in order to chow down at midday-well maybe Europeans, but since they don’t read this blog, they don’t count. Anyway, you get the idea, Washington D.C. is very much a brunch town on weekends. Busboys and [...]

Omg ya’ll. I’m actually 30, today. Can you believe it?

OYA Restaurant

October 20, 2009 Restaurants

A while back, me and a few girlfriends got together for dinner out after work. We wanted to splurge without breaking the bank so we decided on OYA in D.C.’s Penn Quarter area. I know what you are thinking…why would we decide to splurge at OYA of all places, if you didn’t want to spend [...]

La Belle Jolie

October 5, 2009 Restaurants

Recently, while visiting a friend in Brooklyn, I had the pleasure of dining at Jolie restaurant. I don’t know about you all, but I’m often fearful of dining out when I visit the Big Apple. It’s not that I don’t love eating out (you know I do!), but the menu prices are often shockingly high, [...]
