Equinox: A Swoon-Worthy White Truffle Vegan Brunch

If the word vegan makes you go “meh,” it’s time to reconsider.  Vegan sometimes gets a bad rap.  The vegan brunch at Equinox can help sway a non-believer to gain an appreciation for the no meat, no fish, and no dairy side of cuisine. If you think you need a little something extra to persuade you, […]

San Diego: A Positive Verdict for Juniper & Ivy

As a new season of “Top Chef” premiered last week, numerous articles have appeared about current contestants.  DC’s own George Pagonis of Kapnos received a fair amount of press, and there was a collective sigh on my Twitter feed when he was sent home less than half way through the first episode. (I am hoping we will see […]

Ananda: A New Favorite

Ananda Avocado Salad

Tom Sietsema’s Fall Dining Guide 2014, published last weekend in The Washington Post Magazine, includes the critic’s ten favorite DC area restaurants.  It gets me thinking about my own top ten list. My top few are easy to identify, but after that it’s a challenge. It’s hard to compare mind-blowing/budget-busting meals at Minibar and Komi with […]

Nashville: A Noteworthy Scene

Hattie B's

I love “Nashville.”  I wonder how long it will take for Luke to turn evil, so Rayna and Deacon can reunite.  I enjoy the Avery character, partly because I watched Jonathan Jackson grow up on “General Hospital.”  And, although I’m not the biggest country music fan, I appreciate the musical performances.  Oh wait…did you think […]

Rural Society: Steaking a Claim

Rural Society Tenderloin

Steakhouses don’t usually top my list of “must go here” restaurants.  Not that there’s anything wrong with steak.  But I usually prefer food with a creative flair that isn’t always exhibited in even the best of steakhouses. Can DC’s new Rural Society break through my laissez-faire attitude and provide a notable culinary experience? Rural Society, the Argentinian steakhouse […]

Tico: Toying with Tacos and Tequila

Tico Striped Bass

After two visits to Tico I’m still talking about the tasty tacos, tantalizing tequilas, and tender tongue.  In fact, the Latin-influenced Tico is now on my regular rotation of restaurants. If I’m going too heavy on the alliteration, blame it on Tico chef/owner Michael Schlow.  The chef, who brings Tico to DC from its Boston location, […]
