Halloween in Georgetown at Filomena Ristorante

Yes, I know this should have been posted several weeks ago when it was actually Halloween. For one, we’ve been traveling, and for two, I’ve been lazy. In any case, we’re back at it now. We’d been meaning to try Filomena for some time, thanks in large part to friends of ours who are absolutely …

We’ve Found the Best Damned Bakery in America (and Possibly the World)

Let me just start by saying, I am not a dessert guy. I rarely leave enough room at the end of the meal, and I’ve never quite enjoyed sweet things as much as savory ones. So, when I tell you that we’ve found the best fucking bakery in America, and the cakes there will melt …

Brave the Crowds and Try This Busy Italian Restaurant in Richmond

If you visit this site, you know we’ve been on a bit of a Richmond kick recently. Our first visit back in July was eye-opening, and our second visit a few weeks ago was, if anything, even better. During our most recent visit, between all the biscuit eating, not to mention our return visit to …

Our Attempt to Find the Best Biscuit in Richmond

In a great Southern food city like Richmond, you’d expect it would be easy to find a quality biscuit. We sampled several during our first trip to Richmond, but none of the biscuits we tried were particularly satisfying. Our second trip, we decided, would be a different story. Prior to our most recent visit, Kathleen …

It’s Finally Time to Talk About Our Favorite Restaurant in D.C.

Before starting this website and subsequently posting our every food thought for all to read, we’d regularly field the question, “so what’s your favorite restaurant in D.C.?” Up until last year, we didn’t have a clear answer. But we do now; unequivocally, and without reservation. The answer? Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab! Despite …

How to Spend a Perfect Week in Paris

Last November, we spent Thanksgiving week in Paris. Our first trip to Paris wasn’t much of a success, so we were damned and determined to get it right this time. How’d we do this? We limited the number of sites to see each day, we slowed our pace of life to be more Parisian, and, …

An Italian Feast of Epic Proportion

The last week or so has been particularly stressful. People deal with stress in different ways—some people (i.e., weirdos) exercise, some people throw themselves into their creative outlets, and some people, like us, eat. And when I say eat, I mean consume a meal of such magnitude, such grandiosity, and such epic deliciousness, it can’t …

Brabo Restaurant: Old World Cuisine in Old Town Alexandria

It goes without saying that we love to discover new restaurants. Hell, we’ve devoted an entire website to writing about food. Apart from the joy of discovery, though, I sometimes feel like kicking myself after enjoying a good meal at a previously untried spot. It may be stupid, but sometimes I think to myself, man, …

Recipe: Gnocchi with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce

For some reason, up until last year, I’d lived my life without ever eating gnocchi. I don’t know exactly why this is. I’ve always been a picky eater, this is true, but gnocchi should have been right up my starchy, carby alley. Never fear though, I’ve discovered the joys of gnocchi, if late, and am …

Restaurant Review: Cheesetique | Alexandria, VA

Despite our documented struggles to find suitable dining in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, we ventured back there to re-visit a place we hadn’t tried for several years. It turned out to be an excellent choice. As the name implies, Cheesetique is a Mecca for all things cheesy. With seating in the back of …
