Last night, the Eat The District Crew was invited to Tonic at Quigley’s Bar and Restaurant over in Foggy Bottom for the roll out of their new summer menu. This truly was an event to remember, and if you are wondering what it is you should be ordering next time you are at this GW campus hotspot, we’ve got the scoop for you. But before we get into the food, lets showcase some culinary architecture.
Upon arriving at the party we were greeted and quickly introduced to one of the most important events of the night, the kickoff of Tonic’s new #playwithyourtots campaign.Read On
Happy last day of May everyone! It’s almost Friday, you’re almost here weekend. More deals please.
Must Buy: The H Street Corridor is a burgeoning food destination. It’s got countless great options to get you going, whether it’s a pre-bar meal or just a nice meal with a date or some friends. One of those options is the Belgian gastropub Granville Moore’s (1238 H St NE). Google Offers has got you covered with a $15 for $30 deal. Now the food here is a bit pricey, so this may not get you two full meals depending on when you go.Read On
On the corner of T and First Street NW in the Bloomingdale neighborhood sits Rustik Tavern, a tiny bar and restaurant that’s putting out some really delicious food. Brunch here is great, if a bit pricey: their frittatas are delicious and served in huge portions, with a side of fantastic roasted breakfast potatoes and a house-made biscuit. But the real star of the show at Rustic is their pizza, baked in the restaurant’s brick oven. And at happy hour, you can get a pizza for $3 off, making Rustik Tavern a fantastic dinner bargain.Read On
Bagels. Everyone loves bagels. I’m pretty sure that’s a fact. I’ve written about bagels here on Eat the District before (in it’s older incarnation). Bagels Etc. used to be my weekend stumble out of the apartment go to. But I’ve gotten older, friends and I’ve moved north to Tenleytown. The options here are more limited, especially when it comes to bagels. The best option is a quick drive north to Bethesda. There you’re presented with two options: Bethesda Bagels and Georgetown Bagelry.Read On
We’re still recovering from our great trip to Bandolero last night, but we’ll stop moaning about how much we ate long enough to bring you some deals!
Must-Buy: In my opinion, Scoutmob’s deal for Boundary Road is the best deal of the week (and this was a great week for deals!). This new restaurant on H Street, which received a huge boost early on when President Obama took a group of campaign donors here for dinner, has already established itself as one of the best restaurants in the Atlas District.Read On
One of the young women at the table next to us had gotten up to go to the bathroom, and the other was focused on her phone, carefully Instagram-ing pictures of what she’d eaten. Our friend Amanda gently leaned over and said softly, “You might want to look up.” She lifted her head to find Top Chef celebrity and Bandolero head chef Mike Isabella sitting across from her, calmly pretending to play with her friend’s phone. Rendered near speechless, she stammered a few words of small talk with Chef Isabella before he got up and moved on; she immediately turned to us and said, “Oh my god, I felt like a 13-year old girl!”
Bandolero’s first night was filled with a lot of little moments like this one, moments that made the evening feel like a combination of restaurant opening and movie premiere.Read On
It is hard to make a food truck stand out in the difficult and competitive landscape of Washington DC’s rolling eateries. Some trucks fall through the cracks. It is my belief that this occurs most often when a truck refuses to specialize. The most obvious example of this is the nameless halal food truck. If you frequent Farragut or L’Enfant’s lunch hours, you have seen these. The all offer permutations of gyro, chicken or falafel with rice, pita, hummus and other various Mediterranean street food staples.Read On
Hey guys, happy Thursday! You’re on your way! We have one in each category today and of course, the winner is:
Must Buy: A free smoothie from Juice Joint Cafe is being offered today by Scoutmob. Clearly this is a no brainer. Blended fruit smoothies for no money right in the middle of downtown DC. You don’t even need to print anything out! Big thanks to Scoutmob for keeping us cool as we jump into Summer.
Fifty-Fifty: Living Social’s $15 for 30 or $25 for 50 to Petits Plats is certainly a good looking offer.Read On
