Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster Barbecue: This Little Piggy

When it comes to dining out, I am hardly deprived.  I eat at fine dining restaurants, fine casual restaurants, fast casual restaurants, ethnic restaurants, and everything in between.  A void in my dining repertoire is barbecue restaurants. I actually get a pit in my stomach when I think about it. The invitation to dine at Myron […]

True Food Kitchen: Here’s to Your Health

If you’re of a certain age, you start hearing the term anti-inflammatory on a regular basis. And as much as my eating habits are decidedly more millennial than they are member of AARP, I’m not opposed to healthy eating. True Food Kitchen in Bethesda appeals to the part of me that really should be paying […]

Himitsu: Turning Up the Heat

For a moment I fear that we’ve stumbled into a private party.  There are […]

Fogo de Chão: Dreams Do Come True

I don’t dream about food, which is odd because I think about food all the time when I’m awake.  But there are meals that put me in a dreamlike state, which is actually better because the tastes and sensations are genuine.  Fogo de Chão is where my meat fantasies become reality.  Wait…you don’t fantasize about […]

Shouk: All Shook Up

It’s midnight.  I should go to bed. But there’s something nagging at me, and it’s keeping me from calling it a night. I shuffle down the stairs, open the refrigerator door and peer into a leftover rice bowl from Shouk.  The container of cauliflower, asparagus, arugula, za’atar, and tahini would make for a satisfying lunch […]
