Source: Brightest Young Things DC

We originally published our Breakfast Guide in March of 2014. Three years later, the coffee and eggs scene tastes a little different. There are a few more diners, restaurants offering morning meals and still no Waffle House. Sooner or later, we’ll have breakfast establishment perfection in the District. Until then, here are some places where […]

Bring the family. | Farmers & Distillers is big. It’s one of D.C.’s largest restaurants. It bucks the trends of smell menus. It’s opening at an odd time. Most things about it don’t fit D.C. dining trends. But on the same block as RPM, it belongs.

If you’re one of those people who wears shorts or sandals the first day the temperature creeps over 65 degrees then we’re very different people. But whose to say that we can’t both enjoy a tropical drink at happy hour? I’ll wear my lightweight sweater and jeans, you’ll wear your t-shirt and shorts, and we’ll ponder about what life was like before the existence of those little toothpick cocktail umbrellas. …

If spring’s (soon-ish) arrival makes you want seafood then this list is for you. Or if you think it’s still pretty cold out and want a more hearty meal then this list is also for you. We did it!

The Right Way to Complain in a Restaurant

The Right Way to Complain in a Restaurant

We’ve all been there, right? At one point or another, diners received the wrong order, waited too long just to be greeted on a table, or were simply disappointed with the food. Unfortunately, not very many people complain there and then especially when given the opportunity to speak up. Most people bottle those ill feelings and complain on the internet, not allowing restaurants to correct their mistakes in the first place. So next time you have a poor dining experience follow these tips from the restaurants themselves.

Head towards Farmers Fishers Bakers and sample their Islay Swizzle, this week’s cocktail feature. It includes Monkey Shoulder, Mahina Coco, lemon, passion fruit, bitters, and Lagavulin 16-year-old whiskey and served in a tall glass garnished with orange slices. Unusual though it may seem because it uses Scotch as its base, the cocktail still carries that island flavour, thanks to the Mahina Coco liqueur. This is a drink that gets better with time so savour it.

However, there are a couple of handful of places worthy because of the food and their views too. Here’s where you can find them.

City Paper has a profile of a rather unconventional job that’s becoming quite common — Instagramming and tweeting food porn for a living. Take Vina Sananikone, for example. She’s the self-described “multimedia maven” who makes sure social media gets its fill of Cathal Armstrong’s cooking. Sananikone works full time for Armstrong’s Eat Good Food Group and its various enterprises, including Restaurant Eve, The Majestic, Eamonn’s, PX, and Society Fair. She “writes email blasts, shoots photos, updates the company’s web store, and manages all the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts”. But she’s not alone. ...
