What To Eat Tonight: ‘Peace In The Middle East,’ A Brisket-Falafel Sandwich, at Fruit Bat

Achieving true peace in the Middle East may seem hard to imagine. For now, we can at least enjoy its culinary equivalent. I'm referring, of course, to the "Peace In The Middle East" sandwiches that Pound The Hill's Kahlil Ghannam will be in the kitchen making tonight on special at Fruit Bat.  Blending brisket and […]

Witness the return of Washington's most famous Italian chef. Roberto Donna is running the kitchen at La Forchetta, which opens tonight in Wesley Heights near American University.

What To Eat Tonight: Cheaper Ceviche at Tortilla Coast

The newish (and purportedly more authentically Mexican) Tortilla Coast in Logan Circle this week extended its happy hour by a whole half-happy-hour. Another change that's designed to drive up the contentment factor: food specials. Pick from tamales with barbacoa chicken, crispy pulled chicken taquitos and chicken quesadilas with chihuahua cheese, each priced at $5.95. A […]

What To Eat (& Drink) Tonight: Sword-Popped Bubbly With Caviar & Canapés

Admit it: you've always wanted to learn how to pop-open a bottle of bubbly by using a sword.

Snack on caviar and blini canapés while […]

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 […]

What To Eat Tonight: Short Ribs and Pilsner Urquell at Station 4

The latest local restaurant to get into the beer dinner game is Southwest D.C.'s Station 4, which tonight launches a new Monday night special: three courses with sudsy pairings for $30 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Granted, the three featured brews aren't all that eclectic. We're talking about mainstream labels Peroni, Pilsner Urquell and […]

What To Eat Tonight: Prosciutto-Wrapped Snakehead at Dino

Dino's Dean Gold is the latest D.C. chef to embrace one of the hottest trends in the sustainable seafood movement. Tonight, he's serving up snakehead—the invasive species from Asia that is overtaking Chesapeake-area rivers and "a fish you can feel good about depleting," as Volt's Bryan Voltaggio told the Baltimore Sun last summer. Gold is […]
