Smoked eggplant, roasted peppers, walnuts, feta. Served with flatbread. $8
Kapnos, Washington DC
Mmm, this spread was delicious. I personally love eggplants and this preparation was new to me (and I loved it). Their made to order flatbread is also pretty amazing! Noms!
Prosecco “on tap”, Montelvini, Italy, MV. Glass $9
National Mall view from the Washington Monument towards the Capitol Building.
Blackberry mostarda. Happy hour $5
Graffiato, Washington DC
I thought that this was a really boring plate, and the sausage was even over charred. Lame.
View from the Kennedy Center.
Confit, sunnyside up egg, roasted potatoes. $15
Le Diplomate, Wahsington DC
Mmm, I love Le Diplomate. The service is wonderful and the food is very tasty. This duck dish was certainly heavy but it tasted great and the hollandaise sauce was surprisingly bright. Noms!

Bread basket. Complimentary
Omg, this bread basket is glorious!
Morning at Thomas Circle.
Braised wagyu beef belly, smoked chile. Happy hour $5
Rural Society, Washington DC
This empanada was delicious! The shredded beef belly was SO tender and juicy and flavorful, and the crust was flaky and perfect. I wish I had stayed and tried more food but I was in a rush and just ducked in for a quick snack.
Gaucho: Tito’s handmade vodka, Domaine de Canton, lime, mint. $7
Aspiration and Literature statue, Arlington Memorial Bridge.
Dolcezza, Washington DC
Well, this was good but not worth the high price tag. I was a little surprised because food in general was cheaper in DC than in SF, but for some reason Dolcezza seems to charge more for their gelato. The flavors were good, but I wasn’t amazed by the texture and probably won’t be running back for more.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
3 pieces falafel on white pita. Small $5.55
Amsterdam Falafelshop, Washington DC
Omg, I loved this place and totally think we need one in California! The ingredients were great and you could add anything you wanted as toppings. Just choose the number of falafel balls and type of pita and then you’re off to the toppings bar. The sandwich was delicious and all the ingredients were first-rate. Noms!
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. This place is huge!
Tomato, provolone, meatball. Happy hour $3
Graffiato, Washington DC
I wasn’t a fan of these happy hour mini pan pizzas. I felt like it was all dough and I didn’t enjoy the texture of it. The dough was uneven and too chewy. Meh…
Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
