Brunch at RockCreek and a Tip on Vif

I’ve never been a big brunch-goer. Some might argue that I’m anti-social, but the big issue is that I don’t like to wait in line for batter-based dishes that I can easily make at home.
So the first thing that makes the new RockCreek restaurant…

This weekend, Serious Eats posted my “Hangover Helper” article about “The Hangover” at Meander’s Kitchen in White Center. An excerpt:

Sexy Feast: Terra Plata Gives a Taste of Tumescence

Brunch at Fresh Bistro, less the Cracker Jack box

Obviously, I’m brutally backed up (aside from my Sound/City Arts reports) on my restaurant write-ups. So let’s start with a morning meal. Over the summer (remember summer?), I returned to Fresh Bistro (having previously discussed their brulee, bellies and beets) to sample a few of…

Congee is a brunch surprise at Dahlia Lounge

“Yeah, right.”
That’s what I said when I heard that Dahlia Lounge was cooking up congee for brunch.
