Restaurant Review: Rasika

November 6, 2009

Last restaurant week, my husband and I ate a little too much. I know that doesn’t mean much, coming from a food blogger, but it’s true. We went to Capital Grille for lunch exactly 6 hours before going to Rasika. For the most part, our food was delicious, but after Cap Grille’s steak and crab & lobster burger for lunch, we had to take most of our Rasika meal home. On the plus side, I can vouch for it being excellent the next day, naan included!

Appetizers

Delicious texture but a little salty.

Review: DC’s Café Atlántico

August 10, 2009

A while ago, my partner and I ate at Café Atlántico. Actually, we ate there twice – once during restaurant week (with very bad cell phone photos that will not be displayed here other than the drinks) and once before a play at the Shakespeare Theater (pictures after the bump). During restaurant week we got 2 appetizers, 2 mains, and 2 desserts. During non-restaurant week, we got guacamole, 2 mains, and 1 dessert. The guac is mighty – I’d recommend skipping an appetizer unless you’re sharing among many. Without further ado, Café Atlántico‘s spectacular eats:

Drinks
Salt and Lime Air Margarita – It has a salt and lime “foam” on top. It was hard to drink because the foam sloshed around on top. It was tasty, but I wouldn’t get it again.
El Presidente – a blood orange drink with bitters and some other stuff. My partner wasn’t expecting it to look as girly as it did. I didn’t like it much, but he did.
