The Morning Roundup 2/11/2014

If you know me you know I’m wild about froyo. Yes Ice Cream is great, but for those of us who are lactose intolerant and don’t have ready access to Lactaid, froyo is a great option. In the great froyo craze that swept DC we got a lot of good options. Today’s Groupon for $15 for $30 to Pinkberry (available as 3 $10 Groupons) is wonderful. It’s going to be warm soon (though it looks like we might get slammed with snow), and you’re going to be happy you picked this up.

The Morning Roundup 2/3/2014

Happy post-Super Bowl everyone. I hope your food was of a higher quality than that game (amirite?). I nearly lost 100 Wingos wings, but that’s a story for another time. Anyway we got two really solid deals this morning.

I grew up on fried greasy seafood goodness. So a number of years ago when Tackle Box opened in Georgetown (3245 M St., NW) I was thrilled. Now you might say over the years the quality has gone down. But the Groupon for $15 for $30 is well worth it. Pick it up and go grab some fried seafood goodness. The corn on the cob is delicious as well.

Duke’s Grocery

There’s an old cliche that the British have terrible food. I guess it must have come from somewhere, but everything you read (and everything I’ve experienced) indicates that that may be overwrought. And if Duke’s Grocery is an any indication of what they’re doing over in England, I’m moving immediately. Located on 17th St. near such legends as Komi, Little Serow, and Sushi Taro, Duke’s Grocery is a pretty unassuming spot that’s delivering up some some really tasty fare.

Their menu rotates daily (albeit slightly) so make sure you check out Facebook for the daily menu.

My Snowed In Food Diary

Yesterday, like many of you, I enjoyed watching the snow fall from the comfort of my house. I didn’t brave the outdoors and fortunately could work from home. Had this been 2013 I likely would’ve had a few old eggs and some freezer burnt meat available. But my plan for 2014 has been to stock up on good food and prepare more meals at home. And so far it’s working. On Sunday you can almost certainly find me at the H St Giant or Union Market (or both). With many good options to choose I did what any food obsessed person would do on a day in the house, I ate…a lot.

The Morning Roundup 1/16/2014

So we told we were back and what good tidings we bring. Today’s deal actually wasn’t from today, but I saw it before we brought the blog back and it was so good I was mad I couldn’t share it. But guess what today is your day. DC is a city well known for it’s Ethiopian food. Everyone has their favorite spot. Today we are featuring my favorite Ethiopian joint, Etete (1942 9th St., NW). Located on 9th St in between U and T, Etete makes a perfect anytime meal. Whether you’re checking a show out at the 9:30 Club or looking for a cool date spot or just enjoying a night out with friends you can’t go wrong with LivingSocial’s offer of $20 for $40.

And We’re Back!

Hello there. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes or a bear awakening from hibernation or many other terrible metaphors we have returned. We’re sorry we went out for cigarettes and never came back. The good news is 2014 will once again be a year chock full of ETD goodness.

Now I could give you a lot of excuses for why we didn’t keep up the blog, but they would be just that. We got lazy in 2013. One big factor contributed to this. Last year was marked by an incredible number of restaurant openings (I ate well in 2013).

Mailbag: Birthday Indian Dinner Edition!

I’m looking for a nice-ish Indian restaurant for my birthday dinner with my parents this Friday.  Where would you recommend?

Oh man, I wish you hadn’t said THIS Friday, because all I want to do is send you to Rasika (or the sister restaurant Rasika West End) where you’ll spend slightly more money but have one of the best meals in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, reservations for a Friday night are hard to get a month in advance, let alone a couple of days, so you’re going to have to go elsewhere.

Hello world! Only one deal for you this morning, but if you work near Farragut Square you should be pretty happy.

Must-Buy: Today’s Groupon for either $6 for a meal for one or $12 for a meal for two at Naan & Beyond is the perfect lunch deal: a good amount of food at a real cheap price.  For $6 a person, you get a naan sandwich of your choice, masala chips, and a mango lassi to wash it down.  If you work anywhere within walking distance of Naan & Beyond, there’s no reason not to buy this.

The Morning Roundup 2/4/2013

Happy post-hangover Super Bowl Monday. The Ravens and I bet many of you are happy (I’m furious). I hope you stuffed your face with chicken wings. Yours truly was featured in this video. Only one real deal in the city today, and it’s okay.

Fifty-Fifty: My love for Recessions is well known. On a given Friday you have an above average chance (if you’re there before 10) of finding me there. However, I can count on one hand the number of times I have been to Recessions on the six other days of the week.

The Morning Roundup 01/29/2013

Good morning! Some good restaurants on our radar today; unfortunately, the deals themselves aren’t always quite so hot. Here’s what we got today.

Must-Buy: Groupon continues its run of 2012′s best deals with today’s offer of $20 for $40 of food at Lebanese Taverna, and once again we’ll declare you should absolutely take advantage. This place serves up some delicious Lebanese food, and $40 is enough to cover two entrees.  The only downside? The deal only applies to the Bethesda location, meaning a bit longer trip up the Red Line than if you could visit their Woodley Park spot.
