The Morning Roundup 08/07/12

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?

The Morning Roundup 8/1/2012

Happy August everyone. August is my favorite month (and not just because it’s my birthday). Hopefully we’ll have some great meal to close out the summer. Today is not so hot.

Fifty-Fifty: H St is one of our favorites here at ETD. Our H Street correspondent Evan Chiacchiaro has given us the low down on many excellent spots. Today’s Scoutmob to Pho Bar and Grill got me  because it combined H Street and Pho. But then when I dug a little deeper I realized this deal was only so-so. With only a max discount of $8 you’re not going to be getting a ton of food.

We’re back in the saddle. I hope you ate as well as I did this weekend. We have a couple of deals this morning. Also don’t forget to follow us on twitter @EatTheDistrict, and keep submitting your questions to micah@eatthedistrict.com.

Must Buy: Free bagel alert! I will eat a free bagel no matter what so Scoutmob’s deal to  SOVA Espresso and Wine (1359 H St., NE) makes me really happy. Go in, grab a free bagel, and snag a coffee. Sounds like a pretty ideal morning combination. All you H Street folks shouldn’t miss this.

The Morning Roundup 7/25/2012

Only one deal heading your way this morning, but if you like Moroccan food, get your credit cards ready.

Must-Buy: Today’s Google Offer for $18 for $40 at Souk first stands out because of its value, at more than 50%.  Once you get  a look at the menu, you’ll be hooked.  Souk serves up some tasty Moroccan food, both in tapas-style small plates and in larger entrees.  $40 should get you enough tapas for 2, and there’s enough entrees under $20 to get full dinners as well.  Even if you and your dining companion go for the more expensive tagines, you won’t go too far over your coupon’s value.

The Morning Roundup 07/17/2012

It’s going to be over 100 degrees today, folks. Oof.  Stay inside, drink a lot of water, and make yourself feel better by grabbing one of today’s great must-buys.

Must-buy: Groupon’s deal for $25 for $50 of food and drink at Biergarten Haus is a no-brainer, getting you 50% at one of the best spots to hangout on H Street.  Snap this deal up and spend an evening in their outdoor beer garden, snacking on German-style food and choosing from their extensive beer list.

Must-buy: Today’s Scoutmob for $20 for $40 at Casa Oaxaca is a great deal for some of the most authentic Mexican food in DC.

Drink the District: Church and State

Last week I wrote about The Liberty Tree, my favorite place on H Street to sit back, eat some fries, and drink a beer.  Today, it’s time to share my favorite place to go right after.  Almost every time I’ve eaten at The Liberty Tree, the night has continued a couple of blocks away at the speakeasy-style bar Church and State.  Located up a flight of stairs (directly above the bar formerly known as Fruit Bat, which will reopen soon in an undisclosed new format), Church and State mixes prohibition style drinks with flair.

Sticky Rice: Millenium +12

We here at Eat The District talk about sushi a lot. I have a small theory as to the nature of not only our personal infatuations with this cuisine, but with our love of sushi as a community; not just as a metropolitan community, not as an American community, but as a global community. The reason that we, as a race, love sushi is because when it is done right, it is arguably some of the best food on planet Earth. Sushi is a testament to simplicity and how far we can go with just fresh ingredients. Put simply sushi rocks.

MMMMM...

The Liberty Tree

There are some restaurants you go to in order to be surprised, to taste exotic dishes or strange combinations or old favorites re-imagined in ways you never thought possible.  And then there are restaurants you go to when you want to feel at home, to sit in a comfortable setting and eat the foods you’re accustomed to, maybe with a slight change or a bit of flair, but never straying too far from the original.  The Liberty Tree is decidedly the latter and all the better for it.

A small restaurant on H Street NE, you could easily walk right by if you weren’t looking for it.
