You Can Now Eat Quinoa Pilaf at 4 a.m.

The Coupe has been open for about a week, but as of tonight, the Columbia Heights diner is officially going 24/7. The eatery is giving the first 50 customers after midnight a voucher for free breakfast of up to $10 at its sister restaurant, The Diner. Will the 24/7 model last? Or will it go […]

Last Night’s Leftovers: Coca-Cola Freestyle Edition

José Andrés almost crashed his new food truck into a tree. Let this be a lesson to all you young people entering the industry: don't eat and drive. [Eater DC] Mike Isabella dishes about his Mexican-inspired menu at the forthcoming Bandolero. Salsa? Not included. Fajitas? Maybe. Tacos? Most definitely. Margaritas? Hiccup!

Last Night’s Leftovers: Big Boys Show Edition

Local pols say a lot of nice things about The Hamilton; Yelpers not so much. [DCist, Eater DC] Having already conquered Hell's Kitchen, D.C. Central Kitchen's Rock Harper says he has no interest in appearing on other TV cooking competitions like Top Chef or Chopped . ("I won the big boys show," he laughs.) But […]

The Hamilton, By The Numbers

The initial figures on The Hamilton were pretty staggering. The massive new restaurant spans some 37,000 square feet, employs nearly 400 people and offers seating for up to 850 diners (that's counting all dining rooms, the upstairs loft area and downstairs concert hall, bar stools and all).
