What To Eat Tonight: Cheap Wings At Cap Lounge, Cheap Coffee at Union Station

A lot has changed at Capitol Lounge over the years. A 2005 fire consumed much of the kitschy decor, including a vast collection of soccer scarfs and political paraphernalia adorning the walls. Well, save for the longstanding Marion Barry campaign sign in the stairwell. The menu is a lot different, too, with executive chef Teddy […]

Gut Reaction: Fuel Pizza’s ‘#!^%@< Hot!’ Wings Are Just As Advertised

How does North Carolina's take on New York-style pizza compare to the standard Big Apple slice? That question alone was enough to lure Y&H to the new Fuel Pizza on K Street NW, the first D.C. outpost of the Charlotte-based pizzeria chain. Then I got distracted by a more burning question (literally): just how "#!^%@< […]

Some Early Intel on Fuel Pizza, Coming Soon to D.C.

Fuel Pizza, North Carolina's take on New York-style pies, is opening two locations in the District: one in the former bank building across from Verizon Center at 600 F St. NW and another inside the former Burger King space at 1606 K St. NW. Washington Business Journal has more details. For some early intel on […]

The Sauce Remains The Same: A Taste of Old Times at Capitol Lounge

"The heat really slows you down,” a victorious Jay Gorman declared after devouring a total of 53 chicken wings in 10 minutes to take the top prize at the first annual "Fire Breathing Wing Eating contest" on Tuesday night at Capitol Lounge. (Cloture Club has more on the contest here.) The charity event, benefiting the […]

Capitol Lounge Commemorates Disastrous Inferno With ‘Fire Breathing’ Wings-Eating Contest

It's been six years since an errant lit cigarette turned beloved watering hole Capitol Lounge into a fiery inferno and forever changed this columnist's opinion on smoking bans. (Y&H is referring to the first Cap Lounge fire, mind you, not the second blaze.) To commemorate this dubious date in D.C. drinking den history, the twice-burned […]

Good News for Midnight Snackers: D.C. Wings Haven Duffy’s Approved For Later Hours

Talk about the luck of the Irish. D.C.'s perennial chicken-wings powerhouse, Duffy's Irish Pub, has gotten its wish. Last week, the District's Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board voted to terminate the venue's restrictive voluntary agreement with neighbors. The blog We Love DC has the scoop. Among other things, the ruling effectively allows the place to […]

Beloved Wings Hub Duffy’s Irish Pub Fights for Later Hours

It's not every day that an angry neighbor complains to city officials about the local bar closing too early. Quite the contrary. But in the case of Duffy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, Young & Hungry's favorite spot for wings now four years running, nearby residents seem willing to make an exception. WRC-TV weekend anchor Craig […]

Sriracha Laced Rooster Wings Have Me Riding the Orange Line

Though I’m not enamored with nachos, my post earlier this week set off a craving. EatBar’s Monday night football menu promised an interesting version spiked with venison chili. The nachos were fine, but it was the rooster sauce wings on the menu that grabbed me. I’ve always been a Frank’s sauce purist, but sriracha has […]

Wing Man: Scott Drewno Stirs Up Szechwan Bar Food at The Source

Even if Bar Louie’s Szechwan wings weren’t at all spicy, they did ignite a fire of sorts. They’ve left me obsessed with Asian-style wings. I thought I could convince Great Wall-Szechuan House to whip me up a batch despite not having wings on the menu. Their ma po tofu had the exact flavor profile I […]
