Two Breakfasts and a Lunch in Old Town Alexandria

Last weekend, we awoke majorly craving bagel sandwiches. It was the kind of craving only brought on by a night of drinking the evening prior. Unfortunately, Alexandria’s bagel scene is majorly lacking, to be charitable. At least it was…until Genuine Water Bagels recently came to town! Over on our DC Restaurants Page, we just posted …

Where to Eat in South Florida

Recently, I was chatting with a new friend I’d made on Twitter (and seriously, you should follow us there @FoodAndDINK if you haven’t already), and my Twitter friend mentioned plans to spend part of the upcoming summer in South Florida.

An Ode to Barbuto

I recently found out that my favorite restaurant in the entire world, Barbuto in New York City, is closing. My heart weeps, my soul has been torn asunder, and my tummy is downright depressed. Barbuto was where I first tasted my all-time favorite pasta dish, bucatini alla carbonara. And even that played second fiddle to …
