Snagging a seat at the The Arsenal at Bluejacket has been no easy feat with throngs of beer lovers crowding the bar in its first two weeks. Last weekend, it was so busy that the restaurant had to start a line at the front door. At least now there's lunch. The dining room is now […]

Is the 14th Street Corridor Finally Becoming a Lunch Destination?

While the 14th Street corridor is one of the hottest dinner destinations in D.C., it's been a relative desert for weekday lunch.

Breadline Back in Business. If You’re a Fan, You Should Go.

      Just a week after it was closed for 19 violations of the D.C. food code, Breadline was back in business today.

The 225 University of Florida athletes who lunched today at Old Ebbitt Grill arrived 15 minutes late, which meant that the cooks and servers had 15 fewer minutes to get this massive crew in and out the door.
