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.Read On
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.Read On
One deal for you this morning, and it’s aimed at a pretty specific group of people, which means for only the second time ever we’re breaking out the rare Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty Combo rating. Here you go.
Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty: Are you a vegan? Do you frequently dine with a vegan? Are you trying to impress a vegan? Then you’ll absolutely want to drive up to Soul Vegetarian Restaurant near Howard University and take advantage of today’s Scoutmob for $5 off food or smoothies. Everyone else?Read On
If I were to make a list of the places I’ve eaten at most in DC, Tortilla Cafe would easily be in the top three. The Mexican-Salvadoran restaurant, located in Capitol Hill just across from Eastern Market, may have the most reasonable menu in the District. With nothing above $9, most things below $7, and pretty much everything good to eat, Tortilla Cafe should be in everyone’s regular rotation.
Let’s start with breakfast. A stack of pancakes and egg? Only $4.25, and perfectly tasty, if nothing spectacular.Read On
Today’s The Cook’s Books is brought to you by Clementina Russo, the woman behind the always delicious Open Door Dining. Go here and sign up to receive invitations to her Friday night dinners: trust me, you won’t regret it.
My favorite cookbook is Italian Regional Cooking by Ada Boni. It is the best, most comprehensive and authentic Italian regional cooking book ever printed, and it is out of print. You can find copies on Amazon; if anyone is actually really interested in the diversity of Italian food, then this is the source to tap.Read On
It’s good to be back! Here’s what we’ve got today.
Fifty-Fifty: Scoutmob’s $25 for $50 worth of Cuban food at Cubano’s is a pretty good deal. The restaurant gets solid reviews from Yelpers and the Washington Post, and that $50 will cover dinner for two, although you’ll likely have to spend out of pocket to get drinks as well. The downside? It’s up in Silver Spring, which isn’t the most appealing destination for most DC residents. At only a 6 minute walk from the metro, though, this is still a viable option.Read On
