Naples Ristorante E Pizzeria E Bar: Shopping Around for Pizza (CLOSED)

Long before I was known as a food-obsessed diner, I had a passion for shopping.  These days I spend more time shopping for restaurants than I do enhancing my wardrobe. Therefore, shopping for food and clothing in one fell swoop is a dream come true for a multi-tasker like me. I hear positive buzz for […]

Barrel and Crow: Chicken Worth Crowing About

Bethesda’s Barrel and Crow is many things. It’s a shining star among the multitude of decent, but not so exciting Bethesda restaurants.  It’s a place with a rustic/hip ambiance that is becoming commonplace in DC, but is still unique for the suburbs.  But above all, it’s a destination for incredible fried chicken. In fact, I think […]

CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar: Satisfying Cravings at Montgomery Mall

There was a time when I was known as a shopaholic. I still have trinkets adorned with cute little purses and shopping mottoes as evidence of my former passion. My addiction to restaurant dining surpassed shopping years ago, which seems to me like a much more palatable pastime. I recently attended a media dinner at the new […]

The Daily Dish: Spring is in the Air in Silver Spring

Can it be that spring has finally sprung?  A promising indicator is some of the new items on the menu at The Daily Dish, one of my favorite local restaurants.  I participate in a recent media dinner to check out what’s been cooking with this Silver Spring restaurant and catering company. The Daily Dish is […]
