Mailbag: Birthday Indian Dinner Edition!

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.

The Morning Roundup 01/29/2013

Good morning! Some good restaurants on our radar today; unfortunately, the deals themselves aren’t always quite so hot. Here’s what we got today.

Must-Buy: Groupon continues its run of 2012’s best deals with today’s offer of $20 for $40 of food at Lebanese Taverna, and once again we’ll declare you should absolutely take advantage. This place serves up some delicious Lebanese food, and $40 is enough to cover two entrees.  The only downside? The deal only applies to the Bethesda location, meaning a bit longer trip up the Red Line than if you could visit their Woodley Park spot.

The Morning Roundup 7/31/12

Two great deals today! (And one not great deal).  Get ready to jump on these; I’ve already bought the first one.

Must-Buy: Stop whatever you’re doing, grab your credit card, and get today’s Capitol Deal for dinner for 2 at La Plaza on Capitol Hill. For just $25, you get any two entrees from their menu of Mexican and Salvadoran dishes to go along with two margaritas, and of course La Plaza’s bottomless chips and salsa.  Considering the price and La Plaza’s reputation as one of DC’s best Mexican/Salvadoran restaurants, this is absolutely a must-buy.

After a brief hiatus, I’m back on The Morning Roundup (I was out West, you’ll hear more about that later). And as if somehow the gods of the deal knew I was returning today, we’ve got some good ones for you:

Must Buy: Capitol Deal’s $20 for $40 at The Cajun Experience features so many added perks it’s astounding. In addition to the money, it’s available for Sunday’s bottomless mimosa brunch AND if you go between Monday-Wednesday you get 50% off a bottle of wine.
