I suggested we dine here for our May dinner. [Read more…]
Who else is excited that it is Friday today? Some of our weekend plans include cheering on the Caps tonight and Sunday, taking a day trip to Fredericksburg, Virginia (a town south of D.C.) to visit a brewery, grab lunch, and walk around downtown, and sending some neighbors off to Cali at a farewell BBQ.
This past Wednesday the 14th Street Eating crew decided to trek up to the Columbia Heights section of 14th Street to eat at Thip Khao, a self-described sleek & modern eatery showcasing spicy Laotian dishes & classic cocktails with an exotic twist. [Read more…]
There were good things about last night’s monthly 14th Street dinner at Matchbox and not-so good things. [Read more…]
So Tammy and I kind-of did our monthly 14th Street dinner tour on Monday night. Why kind of? Because we actually didn’t eat at a restaurant on 14th Street in DC, but at Hen Quarter in Old Town Alexandria. Let me explain – our gal Christina that makes up our now-trio (refer to Miki’s last dinner post) was seriously sick for the past several weeks (she had to be hospitalized), so while we wanted to honor our monthly dinner, we didn’t want to dine on 14th Street without Christina. So this was Tammy and my compromise, take it or leave it! 😉
I had actually never heard of Hen Quarter, but once I saw the restaurant on Monday night I realized I have driven past it several times. [Read more…]
On Tuesday night my 14th Street gals (minus Miki 🙁 ) and I dined at Sotto for the very first time.
The entrance to the restaurant reminded me of a club entrance, which makes a lot of sense since it is self- described as a speakeasy that has live jazz, blues and neo-soul music. Sotto sits atop Ghibellina (very apropos as “sotto” means “below” in Italian) and is neatly tucked in between Rice and Pearl Dive Oyster Place. I walked down a flight of stairs and once inside quickly forgot that it was sunny outside as the entire restaurant was very dark. [Read more…]
Happy Monday everyone! Hope your weekend was a good one.
One of my weekend highlights was a “ladies night” on Saturday night. Three gal pals and I met each other in Adam’s Morgan for some drinks, food, laughter, and good conversation in that order! I had reached out to several of my girlfriends last month seeing who would be interested in partaking in dinner and drinks with me sans Ava and Tommy. While several people couldn’t make it out because of previous commitments it was a ball. And no worries, I will be doing another one of these in the near future! [Read more…]
