Brookland Pint, Brookland

I walked into Brookland Pint – the sibling restaurant to John Andrade’s Meridian Pint and Smoke and Barrel - last night, not realizing just how much publicity it had gotten pre-opening. Well, it’s safe to say, “The word got out.” The … Continue reading

Spacebar, Falls Church, VA

I stopped by Spacebar last night and had a #11, House Tuna Salad ($8.50) with Provolone and Swiss on Rye, and it was good – they grill the tuna salad on the flattop before doing anything else, so it’s a variation on … Continue reading

MoMo’s Nepalese Food, Springfield

I had several things here the other evening, among them Lamb Choila ($7.99) which was one of the oddest plates of food I’ve had in awhile. It’s possible they’d forgotten this dish, and rushed to prepare it, but what I got was … Continue reading

Virtue Feed & Grain, Old Town Alexandria
