A Half Smoke at Bold Bite

After Union Market, I headed to Union Station. I had a couple hours before I had to catch my train back to Newark. I completely missed the food options here the first time around. Since I had some time, I walked around and checked out the food court located on the bottom level. If there…

Rappahannock Oyster Bar

One of the more popular foods at Union Market are the variety of fresh oysters served up at the Rappahannock Oyster Bar. You’ll find an oyster bar as well as a long communal table behind it.

Union Market DC

I love food markets and try to check one out at any major city I travel to. I didn’t even know about Union Market my first time in DC a few years ago. I wasn’t gonna miss it this time. I headed straight over there after breakfast. The market is clean and bright. It’s fairly…

Founding Farmers

Donburi

If you’re looking for a good reasonably priced lunch, you’ll find many options in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.

I headed to Donburi for some Japanese comfort food of various rice bowls served in a small counter-only space….

After dinner, I walked around the corner and up the block to barmini by José Andrés. This swanky cocktail bar features an innovative menu of unique drinks and snacks. It all started over 15 years ago when the renowned chef created the Salt Air Margarita at his Nuevo Latino restaurant, Café Atlántico. Today, José pays homage…
