The 1 Million Pop-Tart Giveaway Is an Atrocity

I was just waiting for you to slam the Denny's sandwich, and I am so glad you did. The things pumped out at that restaurant make my skin crawl. This sando, along with this monstrosity (, are completely disgusting and SHOULD be banned.

Graffiato by Mike Isabella opening soon...

I think its somewhat unreasonable to discount a restaurant completely because you are not a fan of the chefs personality. I don't know about you, but I usually go to restaurants to eat. Good food is good food. Period. Regardless of the brashness of the chef.

Thoughts? I hear they are serving his pepperoni sauce from the Top Chef All-Star's finale.

Chocolate Pecan Pie

My family always makes this over the summer, but we just call it Kentucky Bourbon Pie. Its always a crowd pleaser

Cocktails in DC!

Founding Farmers in Foggy Bottom ahs great cocktails

5 Days in DC. Where MUST I go eat?

In my opinion any one of José Andrés's restaurants is a good choice. My favorite is Zaytinya in Chinatown which serves Mediterranean mezze style dishes (small dishes like spanish tapas). Their braised then grilled octopus is out of this world. Also if you are craving a good steak go to Morton's In Georgetown.

Soup!!! Gotta have it!

A great option for homemade soup is This mother/daughter duo turns out one hearty and one appetizer a week (both vegetarian). There are pick-up spots all over the city and delivery for a small fee. I've already eaten crazy combos like african peanut vegetable stew and child hood favotrites like tomato and rice. Pretty Cheap and very delicious
