DC isn’t exactly a night owl of a city, but just because it’s way past Happy Hour, it does not mean there isn’t a great meal to be had. Here we run down the best of DC’s late night nibbling.
El Centro D.F –The main floor of this tequileria and taqueria has a late night menu, available from 11pm -2am on weekends. They offer tacos, quesadillas and tortas. I especially like their Pork Carnitas Torta.

It’s finally fall and almost October, which means it’s time for that annual, German, month-long celebration of beer. Yes, Oktoberfest. There are plenty of places in DC that will hold celebrations; here are my top picks.
Oktoberfest Brewery Bicycle tour from Bardo Brewpub (Sept 28)
On Saturday, Oct 28, Bardo Brewpub is sponsoring a bicycle brewery tour that visits DC Brau and New Columbia Distillery for tours and tastings. The tour wil... Read More
Home to the National Zoo, the Cleveland Park neighborhood of Washington, DC, attracts a number of tourists and locals every year. It is a beautiful self-contained part of the city, which does not get all the attention it deserves.
It is also home to a number of small and unique restaurants, shops and bars and feels like a wonderful neighborhood community. I have to admit; I don’t venture there as much as I should, but always enjoy it when I am ... Read More
The DC food scene has been garnering attention, and even earned us a spot as a “place worth visiting in 2013” due to the existing and expanding dining scene. No DC food article is complete these days without a mention of 14th Street NW.
Of course, there are great restaurants located all over DC, but you have to admit, 14th Street NW is doing well for itself this decade.
Now, the list below is definitely not comprehensive, and is probably... Read More
I can remember chasing the neighborhood ice cream truck up and down the street during the summer as a kid. Often times it didn’t stop to wait, leaving me popsicle-less and heartbroken. On the occasions I was able to snag a popsicle, I was absolutely euphoric. I always loved the Firecracker, a messy, patriotic themed popsicle.
Recently, I discovered Pleasant Pops, a gourmet popsicle cart, food truck and store. Reminded of my ice cream tr... Read More

Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I thought I'd round up some of the city's best hot chocolates. After all, it's still cccccccold outside and what better way to warm up than with than a steaming cup of hot cocoa? Add a Valentine into that equation and you've got a recipe for loooooove. (Or just a pleasant afternoon. Either way!)
It's not surprising that Co Co Sala makes incredible hot chocolate--after all it IS a chocolate restaurant. But tha... Read More
Sweetgreen Vs Chop't: Battle of the DC Designer Salad Shops
Sweetgreen and Chop't, Chop't and Sweetgreen. If you're of the veggie persuasion and you live in the DC area, chances are you've nommed on the big green salads at one of these establishments. District-dwellers love these salad spots because they're fast, easy and fresh. But if you put them in the ring, which one would come out on top? We investigate.
Both restaurants were started by c... Read More
Restaurant Week. A time of the year when the foodies get excited, the less adventurous go on a taste adventure, and chefs are driven mad. Ahhh yes, the wonderful time of the year when you have a legitimate excuse to drain your savings in order to dine out several nights in a row. I'm excited, and you should be too. Unfortunately I did not always feel this way. In the past, RW has brought a needless degree of anxiety to my life -which is very silly bec... Read More
Dupont Circle is likely one of DC's trendiest spots for restaurants. The neighborhood is full of chic eateries with modern decor, fusion-inspired menus and oddly-shaped plates striped with zigzags of fancy sauces. Dupont's trendy dining is not necessarily good or bad; some restaurants can pull it off with genuine flair, and others are just chic pretenders with a sleek facade and mediocre food within.
But, among all of Dupont's truly swanky (and wanna... Read More
Because of the massive variety of burger choices in the DC area, burgers are often mistaken for a commodity; something that is commonly available and has no variation of quality. Washingtonians are so overwhelmed with burger choices that they often choose their burgers by convenience instead of taste. It's certainly far easier to find the "nearest" burger instead of the "best" burger, but you're not doing yourself a favor by settling for a mediocre sa... Read More
