Nothing too spectacular this morning, but there’s a couple of deals that may be worth your attention, and one you shouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole. Here’s the roundup:
Fifty-Fifty: The Capitol Deal’s offer of $15.50 for an entree and unlimited mimosas or bloody marys at Ulah Bistro is real tempting. Ulah Bistro serves up a delicious brunch – I recommend the Eggs Chesapeake – and is a great place to spend a Saturday morning/early afternoon. That being said, this deal is only worth it for the drinks. One drink makes it worth the purchase, and if you’re looking to while away a Saturday after 2-3 mimosas, then definitely buy this. If not, you can eat cheaper without the deal.
Fifty-Fifty: Scoutmob’s Brookland Grill deal is going to get you $5 off a solid breakfast at a small, no-frills restaurant. Worth traveling across the city for? Probably not. Worth stopping in if you’re in the neighborhood and want some pancakes? Almost certainly.
Avoid: I saw Groupon’s all-you-can-eat crab feast at Steamer’s Seafood House in Bethesda and initially got pretty excited. Crabs! As many as you can have! What could be better! And then I saw the reviews. Tepid at best, scathing at worst, Steamer’s appears to be a place whose better days are behind it. Skip this, and satisfy your crab craving elsewhere.
