Small Dishes Capture the Heart of Italy

Small Dishes Capture the Heart of Italy

Most people will acknowledge the communal nature of eating, at least in theory. But, when eating out, it often becomes apparent that despite how obvious it might seem to even the most casual eater, restaurants often fail to facilitate the communal appeal of food. Plates are often awkwardly allocated around[Read More…]

Seafood Pleases But Prices Upset

Seafood Pleases But Prices Upset

3/5 stars $$$$ Before dining in Arlington this past weekend, I never considered the land across Key Bridge one of multiple fine culinary options. However, Quarterdeck, a happening crab joint that is a 10-minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro station, proved me wrong.  The restaurant has been serving up fresh Maryland blue[Read More…]

Tasty Food With A Colonial Twist

$$$$ 3/5 Stars Let’s be real: One of the best parts about having your parents come into town is that they’ll bring you food from home and sometimes take you out for meals at expensive D.C. restaurants. Yes, you welcome the chance to leave campus, where Leo’s, Wisey’s takeout and Kraft mac[Read More…]

Brazilian Restaurant Beefs up Barbecue

5/5 stars   $$$$   This past weekend, Taste of D.C. dominated culinary headlines across the city. Right across from the event’s entrance, however, Fogo de Chão awaited with promises of meat and more meat — and an awesome salad bar if you’re into greens. The famous restaurant chain offers an authentic Brazilian churrasco experience, which[Read More…]

It Doesn’t Get Butter Than This

3/5 stars $$$$ Blame it on Paula Deen. With her recipes including four sticks of butter and enough cheddar cheese to keep Wisconsin’s economy going, Deen has likely convinced many that Southern food is the culprit in America’s obesity problem. Yet while Southern food may not be the best for[Read More…]

Don’t Be Ashamed To Pig Out

Don’t Be Ashamed To Pig Out

4/5 stars $$$$ The Pig is an enigma. A pleasant one, but an enigma nonetheless. Any restaurant that takes its name from a notoriously gluttonous animal should offer a meal with a calorie count that will keep me on the StairMaster for two and a half weeks. After perusing the menu at[Read More…]

Hidden Gem Serves Up Fresh, Authentic Thai Food

Hidden Gem Serves Up Fresh, Authentic Thai Food

4/5 stars $$$$ A short 15-minute walk from campus, Basil Thai gives its competitors in Georgetown a run for their Baht. With only 11 tables and 30 seats, the restaurant creates a welcoming and intimate atmosphere that the better-known Mai Thai and Bangkok Joe’s lack. Reservations are not needed, and parties[Read More…]

This is Why America Eats

Yet another culinary creation of José Andrés (Jaleo, Cafe Atlantico), this eatery offers diners a modern take on fine dining from America in the 1930s. Coinciding with the opening of the exhibit at the National Archives of the same name,[Read More…]

Take a Short Trip South of the Border

Take a Short Trip South of the Border

After a long week of hard work, I crave nothing more on a Friday night than a full-on Mexican feast. Sure, Georgetown has a few choices to appeal to Mexican food fanatics with Chipotle and Qdoba on M Street and Los Cuates further up Wisconsin, but none of the choices truly appeases my hunger[Read More…]

Takin’ Jamaican to the Next Level

When people think of food in D.C., they typically don’t think of Caribbean cuisine — Ethiopian and American, perhaps, but definitely not Jamaican. I myself am Jamaican, and grew up with a patty shop around the corner and hardo bread always within reach. Looking for a little bit of home in D.C., I craved[Read More…]
