It was quite the experience at the @yelpdc elite event tonight at @bibibopasiangrill! We ate yummy #Korean #rice bowls with so many healthy and flavorful toppings like pickled daikon radish (👌🏾), and then we had the chance to make our own #kimchi!
So excited to try @littlepearldc at night! The service was impeccable, the snacks were fun, and as someone trying to expand my wine horizons the offerings were really exciting. Cant wait to go back for the burger! Thank you @kmikalbrown and #instagramlessCorey!!

Number 95: I love visiting DC mainstays as part of this journey and Obelisk is a case in point. With the relaxed atmosphere and delicious food it’s easy to see why it’s been charming Washingtonians since 1987. To go on the day Chef\Owner Esther Lee was announced a @beardfoundation semi-finalist made it all the more special. And so glad you could join me on my mission @profedwards!!

Big throwback to much earlier last year @sfoglinadc ! Don’t remember why I didn’t post this because this was some badass pasta but here are the belated pics:
1) Riff on cacio e pepe
2) Beet stained goat cheese tortelloni
3) Lobster and octopus casarecce
4) Panna cotta
Number 93: Dinner at the Eritrean @kerenrestaurant! I brought my kids, which is always a crapshoot, but the staff couldn’t have been nicer—literally the most attentive service towards children I’ve ever experienced. The food was delicious (I’m addicted to the chicken) including the special dishes they brought out for the kids. Thank you so much Lemlem, we will be back!
- Tibsi (chicken with Eritrean spices, onion, tomato), lentil, potato and carrot, split pea, cabbage, salad, spinach over enjera
- Fūl (mashed cooked favs beans, tomato, onion, yogurt, olive oil, berbere)
- Lemlem! ♥️

Lunch from this week at @esaantumbar in McLean! Laab with pork, rich soup with beef, and sticky rice. If you like the funky sour north-eastern style Thai food definitely check this place out as it’s really damn good... Even if you’re not big on fish sauce or chili peppers their Khao soi (a red curry coconut soup with egg noodles) as well as their meats are also delicious. By my estimation the food is also also quite healthy. Great addition in the past year to the Nova (and McLean especially) food scene.
Number 92: fun dinner with my friends/co-workers at @ivycitysmokehouse! This restaurant is part of a whole surrounding fish complex: downstairs is a public market, upstairs is the tavern where we ate, and across the street are the associated ProFish warehouses. It doesn’t get much fresher than that so we ate alllll the fish plus the ribs! I loved the fish board and the salmon jerky, both smoked in-house right below where we sat! Thank you Greg, Chef Ron, and @Johnrwashdc!!

- Branzino Stuffed with Crab
- Half Rack of Ribs - Smoked Salmon Jerky - ProFish owner/partner Greg Casten and Chef/partner Ron Goodman

Last nights meal at @casaenrique in Long Island NY w/ @charles.scharfen . With no disrespect to any other places I’ve eaten I don’t think I’ve had Mexican food cooked at this level before . Everything I tasted was exceedingly fresh and well executed. I wish I could’ve ordered even more stuff but had a concert afterwards. Anyway, dishes pictured:
1) Mole de piaxtla : The mole sauce is made using a mix of dry peppers, almonds, raisins, plantain, sesame seeds and chocolate over chicken and rice.
2) Crab Tostadas : Crab in crispy tortilla with citrus, avocado, tomato, chile serrano, and cilantro.
3) Ceviche : Market fish cured in lime with onion, avocado, tomato.
*Not pictured : awesome mezcal margs.
** If you’re still reading - I accidentally ate that evil looking chili pepper on the mole dish and it was devastating 😂

Scenes from last Saturday @thedabneycellar in DC (with @kevtcort )! This place is just cool as fuck / similar look and feel to the Dabney’s main dining room but a little bit swankier with an almost “exclusive” feel (the entrance is off a street and not accessible through the restaurant). The downstairs cellar contains a different simpler menu with an extensive wine list. While the is largely not as preparation intensive as the creations from upstairs it manages to be every bit as delicious. The menu is heavy on raw and cured items (oysters, crudos, country hams) which all shine thanks to the high quality sourcing. However the menu also contains some delightful bacon buttermilk biscuits and decadent buttery lobster toast (on brioche) as a great finisher. *Food not displayed in order it was eaten*
1) Country Ham
2) Lobster Toast
3) Foie Gras Parfait
4) Bacon Buttermilk Biscuits
5) Tuna Crudo *Not displayed : oysters, wine, excellent service
