My parents are coming to town this weekend, and I’m looking for a good restaurant for dinner on Friday night. Last time they were here, we ate at Founding Farmers, which was very well received. We’re pretty open to a variety of cuisines, and it can be a little pricey but not too extravagant. I work by Farragut West and live in Crystal City, so pretty much anything in the south half of DC and anywhere in Arlington is fair game. Any recommendations? Thanks!
I have plenty of recommendations! First off, again, there’s always Micah’s mother’s excellent guide to eating the District with parents.Read On
Happy Wednesday. It’s only three more days until the weekend. You can do it!
Must Buy: I’ve never had food from New Zealand. I know they eat a lot of lamb, but beyond that I’m at a loss. So that’s partly why today’s Scoutmob to Cassatt’s Kiwi Cafe & Gallery (4536 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA) is so intriguing. With a max discount of $10 at lunch or $15 at dinner you’re going to get a good amount of food, a lot of which looks mighty tasty.
Avoid: A lot of times you’ll see restaurants featured on multiple deal sites.Read On
You’ve already read my review of El Chilango the food truck (if you haven’t read it here). About a month ago it was announced that they would be opening a store on V Street. And then it was announced that it would open my birthday week. And then I found out I was moving 5 blocks away. So consider me excited when I checked it out last week. Would it live up to the truck? Would there be more menu options? Would there be habanero slaw. The answer to all these questions is an emphatic yes.
Tacos El Chilango the store lives up to the hype.Read On
Only one deal so far this morning, but it’s a great one. We’ll keep you posted if anything else rolls in.
Must-Buy: Considering its free, the words “must-buy” seem incorrect, but you know what we mean: today’s Scoutmob deal for a free beer at SOVA is as good as it gets. Known primarily as a cafe, SOVA serves beer, wine, and cocktails as well, and they’re looking to give some beers away. Why would you pass up that chance?Read On
There is a man. He is behind a counter. The counter resides at the back of the commercial space at 1020 19th Street NW. He holds in his hand a blade. He carves. Day after day, facing down a large turkey breast and sides of roast beef and ham, he carves.
Located on 19th between K and L, Cafe Carvy is a new sandwich spot serving out their wares during the work day to the suited denizens of the downtown DC business establishment. They have a relatively small menu but their focus is on their handcarved meats.Read On
