The Morning Roundup

The Morning Roundup 10/03/2012

Lot’s to see here on this Wednesday. We got quite a few deals of all different qualities.

Must Buy: We like pizza. We like beer. Today’s Capitol Deal gives us both. $12 gets you a personal pizza and two beers at Pizza No. 17 (1523 17th St., NW). Even if the pizza isn’t the best in the city (it’s pretty good), this deal is made on the two beers. You can use multiple vouchers at one time so grab your friends and head on over.

Must Buy: When we lived in Tenleytown for a while our go-to for trivia was Union Jack’s in Bethesda (4915 Saint Elmo Ave., Bethesda).

The Morning Roundup 08/09/12

Theme of the day: restaurants we’ve featured before on The Morning Roundup. One deal gets better, one deal loses some value, and one deal is so similar I’m just going to copy and paste.  Here’s what we got for you today.

Must-buy: Today’s Groupon is $12 for $26 Boston-import The Upper Crust in Dupont Circle, and if you’re craving some good pizza this is one you shouldn’t miss.  This deal has a bit more going for it than the $10 for $20 one Micah gave a fifty-fifty in April; with $26, you’ll easily have enough food for 3, maybe 4 people, as this should cover or come close to covering both a pizza and one of their calzones.

Kouzina Angelina: A Homecoming

This post is one of a personal nature for me. It is perhaps going to ramble a bit more than usual, but I promise it’s worth it. This is a story about friendship and pizza. The story begins back in 2009. I was living on P St in Dupont, writing for the original incarnation of Eat the District, and happened to discover a magical pizza place known as Goody’s. Many of my friends ate there with me in those days and remember Angelina, the pizza chef with quite possibly the biggest heart in the restaurant business.

The Morning Roundup 07/05/12

Hope everyone had a great 4th! We got one good and one bad deal for you this morning.

Must Buy: DC is a city known for its good Ethiopian. Scoutmob’s deal to Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant (2434 18th St., NW) is no exception. While maybe not the top spot, it is certainly worth checking out at a discounted price. With up to $15 off you’ll get yourself a good amount of food.

Avoid: There’s no good reason to buy today’s Google Offer for Bestolli’s Pizza. Only $3 off subpar pizza is as much of an avoid as you can get.

The Morning Roundup 6/26/2012

Happy Tuesday everyone. The weather this morning was beautiful and the forecast looks fantastic. We got so

Must Buy: This first one is for all you Montgomery County dwellers. Bethesda has a lot of good restaurants, and one you may have overlooked was Pizza Tempo (8021 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MD). Google Offers has $10 for $20 today and we like it. With a lot of good looking pizzas this deal will get you an XL pizza at a minimum. With a rather extensive menu you can mix and match your way to $20 easily. Who doesn’t love discounted pizza?

The Morning Roundup 6/20/2012

Good morning and happy Wednesday. It’s going to be a scorcher out there, so be careful and make sure you’re staying hydrated.

Must Buy: Cheap pizza is cheap pizza is cheap pizza. A lot of it’s the same and mostly it’s not bad to good. But when you can get two slices, a salad, and a soda for $5 you can’t pass it up. Groupon has just that deal today to Washington Deli Pizza and Catering (5830 Georgia Ave. NW). Hurry on up to Petworth and chow down.

Fifty-Fifty/Avoid: File this one under deals I really wanted to like, but ultimately just couldn’t convince myself that it was worth it.

Vace

The strip of storefronts across the street from the Cleveland Park Metro station is filled with classier restaurants: Ardeo + Bardeo, Ripple, Lavandou, and Dino are all there, and Palena is only shopping center away.  But tucked in among these pricey, white tablecloth restaurants is Vace, an unassuming Italian delicatessen and store that’s hands down the best food value in the neighborhood.

Let’s start with the pizza. Is it 2 Amys or La Forchetta?

$3 off Pizzas at Rustik Tavern’s Happy Hour

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.

The Morning Roundup 5/22/2012

Welcome back. You survived Monday, give yourself a pat on the back. The weather is looking pretty gross once again. The deals? A little better.

Must Buy: Scoutmob’s 50% at RedRocks Pizzeria (1036 Park Rd., NW) is a typical no brainer from Scoutmob. Good food, not overly expensive, and no committment to buy make the Columbia Heights spot a slam dunk. Good pizza with a good beer selection sounds like a recipe for a great night out. The food is a little pricey, and you’re only getting $12 off but we still say yeah to this one.

Al Dente (formerly La Forchetta)

Al Dente, formerly known as La Forchetta, changed its name due to similarities with other restaurants both in DC and worldwide. Still the same menu, still the same chef, still the same review!

As an Italian, it’s a bit difficult to review an Italian restaurant. So many of my perceptions and opinions surrounding Italian food are inevitably wrapped up in memory and nostalgia, not driven by taste alone. No pizza will ever be better than Emilio’s around the corner; no spaghetti and meatballs will ever be better than my Dad’s on a Sunday.
