My Week In Food

Saturday, September 19:  Our staple pizza spot lately has been Kora.  While Sachin's been sticking to his duck confit pizza, I keep trying out new ones.  So far, my favorite has been the sausage pizza; you just can't beat the pools of creamy ricotta baked into the pie. This time I tried the chicken pesto pizza,  it was good, but not one I'd get again.  I did enjoy my whiskey sour though! 

Sunday, September 20:  To get back into the football season, Sachin and I met up wtih his friend at Bar Louie to watch the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins games. I had a hankering for some tater tots, so we down a big basket of perfectly fried tater tots and deliciously spiced buffalo-style boneless wings.  

Monday, September 21:  Since I'm a huge fan of the Chef Isabella restaurants in D.C., I had to try out Kapnos Taverna.  I went to happy hour with a couple of friends from law school. Chowed down on marinated octopus - with eggplant, red pepper and olives; marinated mussels - with celery, preserved lemon and pomegranate seeds; raw oysters - served with freshly grated horseradish, and crispy eggplant - with spicy honey and an orange pith puree.  I ordered the spit-roasted lamb which was served with grain salad and tzatziki. The flavor on the spit-roasted lamb was fantastic.  Charred edges, but with tender meat - it tasted so buttery.  

Tuesday, September 22:  I use to live in Cleveland Park, but it was only after I left, that Medium Rare popped up in the neighborhood.  This establishment touts its fixed menu, priced around $20, which offers customers bread, salad, and two servings of steak frites.  A pretty great deal I'd say, but I wanted to know whether the food was actually that good. Sonia, Mirona and I went there for dinner, and we were sold.  This is going to be a repeat spot!  The sauce poured over the steak frites is ridiculously good, it's almost like a gravy - creamy with peppercorns - just fantastic!  

Wednesday, September 23:  Chicken Tikka Masala for lunch, because listen, you work at least an 8-hour day, you might as well enjoy your meals!

Thursday, September 24:  I head off to San Francisco today for 6 days.  I'll be back on Wednesday, the 30th you guys, but of course follow our Instagram or Twitter account and I'll likely feature a lot of what I eat on the trip on this blog.
