Former Washingtonian Needs Advice

I lived in DC for over six years...left early last winter. Over the past 1.5 years it seems a ton of new, hip, cool and delicious places have sprung up. Coming back for three days this week for a work trip (on an expense account but like to be reasonable and avoid majorly $$$ meals). Please suggest some new places that have opened up recently in the NW area (Dupont, Chinatown/Penn Quarter, U St, Logan, etc.). I now live in NYC if this put things in perspective about the access to the types of restaurants I regularly have access to. I'm looking for some places to meet friends with for dinner and some more low key lunch spots that are healthy (good salads and can be fast casual--like Sweetgreen). Thanks!

A veggie side to go with meatloaf cupcakes for April Fools?

To go with the theme, how about a "frosting" of mashed cauliflower?

TJ's Kale & Spinach Greek Yogurt Dip

Be careful with this as a snack. While it's "healthy" in moderation, the whole tub has around 500 calories!

I tried it in canned salmon, which is also tasty. I also put it on toast with avocado and separately with hard boiled egg whites one toast.

South African

I'm trying to give a friend who lives in NYC a taste from home. Where can one find some South African delicacies/bakery items/candy/food AND a large selection of South African wine (have found that most wine shops have maybe 2-5 tops of each a red and a white). Thanks

Food shopping in Fort Greene?

Yes, they are slightly bigger there but their selection has not changed much. This place is definitely not a place to do a "regular" weekly grocery shop at.

Sushi in the West Village

Where are some good sushi restaurants in the West Village for a date (no Sushi Samba please!)?

Food shopping in Fort Greene?

Was considering a move there as well, but for this reason i ended up in Park Slope. Pathmark isn't really close to prime Ft. Greene or at least when it's cold/carrying bags.

TJ's Kale & Spinach Greek Yogurt Dip

Love this newish product from Trader Joe's. Besides the obvious dipping of chips, veggies (and whatever else you dip), what are some other uses for this dip? I was thinking it might be good as the "cheese" of a homemade pizza or quesadilla. Other ideas or what are some healthy ways you use the dip?

What is with the smell at Subway??

Wish there was a "like" button as they have on FB!

What is with the smell at Subway??

I always thought it was the bread and some chemical reaction with a preservative once the dough was baked. However, I have traveled all over the world--six continents--and Subways are everywhere. That smell is at every one, and each country I know has different rules and regulations on the types of preservatives that can go into food. So I wonder if that smell comes from somewhere else. It's strange...

Trader Joe's Yay/Nay Thread - April 2013 [OLD]

Do you have a "rough" recipe for this?

Birthday dinner near DC Convention Center?

While I really like Corduroy, I wonder if a 1 year old's celebration might be more fun at a place like Aggain. Corduroy may be a little too serene.
