As you will recall one of the things I do when writing about a restaurant is to describe the men’s restroom or increasingly unisex restrooms. Continue reading “Restaurant Restrooms”

On January 7th, Debbie and I attended the opening reception of Maialino Mare. (Washington Watch January 2020) The restaurant is located in the new Thompson Hotel. This is the first full-service D.C. restaurant opened by Danny Meyer and also the first full-service restaurant he has opened outside of New York as part of his Union Square Hospitality Group.
Our second visit was for dinner on March 2nd with Bev and Brady. We had a 6:45 p.m. reservation. (See note at the end.) Continue reading “Restaurant: Maialino Mare”
If this address sounds familiar it’s because it used to house Nora Pouillon’s restaurant for some 38 years. Over the years I dined there many times. Continue reading “Restaurant: Annabelle”
Debbie and I went to Bresca with Ricki and Tony. The restaurant has been open for about two years.
Bresca has a single Michelin star, one of 18 restaurants in the D.C. area that has one or more Michelin stars. Our experience proved that it deserves this honor. Neither Debbie or nor could recall a better meal from any of the many restaurants at which we have dined. (More about those 18 Michelin restaurants at the end of this piece.) Continue reading “Restaurant: Bresca”
This is a first for WW, reviewing a restaurant that Debbie and I visited the night before it opened.
We were invited to a reception on January 7th the night before the restaurant opened in its new home at the Navy Yard. The restaurant is located in the new Thompson Hotel which also opened the next day. Continue reading “Restaurant: Maialino Mare”
Debbie and I went to Brasserie Liberté with Elizabeth and Hilary. It is relatively new and located in what was for many years Morton’s Steak House. It is not a steak house. Continue reading “Restaurant: Brasserie Liberté”
This is not a restaurant, but WW has become so enamored with Melissa’s products that that they need to be shared.
Melissa Ben-Ishay has created a cupcake bonanza of tiny cupcakes. It is hard to describe. If there is a cupcake flavor/frosting that you would like, including gluten free, there is a high chance you can find it at Baked by Melissa. Continue reading “Baked by Melissa”

Debbie and I went to Iron Gate for brunch with Lea and Wayne at their suggestion. It turned out to be a great choice. Continue reading “Restaurant: Iron Gate”
The Hill Center was a Naval Hospital in the Civil War. Now it is an event and miscellaneous gallery/child and adult arts and education space including various classes including Tai Chi Chuan. Check out the Hill Center website. Continue reading “Restaurant: Little Pearl”
At their invitation, I went with Simma and Ron to the Oyster Palace. We settled into a booth on the right side of the restaurant. Continue reading “Restaurant: Pearl Dive Oyster Palace”
I went to Bistro Aracosia in the Palisades neighborhood of D.C. with Bob and Rita and Bev and Brady.
The restaurant describes itself as an “Authentic Afghan Gourmet + Chop House”, and who am I to argue with that description? Continue reading “Restaurant: Bistro Aracosia”
I went to Wild Tomato with Diane, John, Sherry and Mike.
The restaurant seats about 80 people including some 10 seats outside which are available when weather permits, as it did the night we were there. There is also an outdoor bar with six high seats. Continue reading “Restaurant: Wild Tomato”
[For the first time in its history, WW is publishing a review done by someone other than me. Bob Barnett, a regular reader of WW, graciously offered to do this review since the chances of my getting to the Roadkill Café are low.] Continue reading “Restaurant: Roadkill Café”
