Not Your Usual Mall Fare: Wicked Waffle

by Allison February 20, 2014 Dining Out

Trips to the mall often end in a visit to the food court, where options tend to be heavy on the fried and greasy side. My kids are always happy to go for fries and a toy, but I usually leave wishing there was a better, healthier option. On our family’s last visit to Montgomery […]

New Restaurant to Try in D.C.: Sophie’s Cuban

by Elaine October 3, 2013 Dining Out

Disclosure: I was treated to a tasting menu at Sophie’s Cuban. It was such a wonderful lunch. I was not required to write about my visit. Thank you, Sophie’s – and welcome to the neighborhood!

Mezeh Grill at the Annapolis Mall: Healthy, Delicious & in Food Court

by christine July 25, 2013 Around Town

I don’t know about you, but whenever I end up starving in the food court of a mall, I usually survey my surroundings dejectedly, thinking, “Ugh, nope, gross, greasy, sigh, blah…” before ending up with a burger or a slice of greasy pizza or something that keeps my kids happy but is neither healthy nor […]

Fishnet: Good Eating in College Park

by christine March 5, 2013 Dining Out

One day last week I took the opportunity to try a local restaurant I’d heard about a while ago but never gone to. I hadn’t been before because it’s a fish restaurant and my husband, while possessing many fine qualities, is not a big fan of fish. Not that my four-year-old is either, but I […]

Sampling DC’s Finest Restaurants Guilt Free

by rebeccathomas February 20, 2013 Around Town

I’ve already established that I’m a minimalist when it comes to material possessions. So nearly 11 years ago, shortly after my husband and I married, I began a tradition that we instantly clung to and wholeheartedly enjoy today. We don’t exchange presents. That is, we don’t exchange material goods for birthdays and anniversaries–Christmas is our […]

by Jessica McFadden September 20, 2012 Around Town

Quench in Rockville loves adults (as evidenced by its beautiful craft cocktails selection), but it also adores kids. The opening of its new half-off-for-kids Sunday brunch this week on September 23 is proof!
