Photo via Ever since I discovered the underground Chipotle menu (that’s apparently not that secret…), I’ve been dying to try it. I’m a sucker for Mexican food and although I’m not obsessed with Chipotle like 99.9% of the human population, I do really appreciate their healthful ingredients and fresh taste. So a couple of weeks ago, my friends and I headed out to the Chipotle on M Street to catch up. I was probably more eager to try out the […]
It was only a matter of time until I reviewed Le Pain Quotidien. Scrumptious, organic French food in a charming communal table setting? That’s my heaven on earth. Plus, it’s considerably vegetarian-friendly (vegan, too). Since I first went with my Guest of a Guest editor in February, I’ve been hooked. Today’s post is about the rustic tuna & hummus tartine, but I’ve also had (and naturally loved) the bread basket (WTIH ALL OF THE DELICIOUS SPREADS, I CAN’T GET STARTED ON THEM), brioche, vegan […]

For Valentine’s Day (yes, I know: I’m late), my best friend and I dined at Bistro Français because we’re major francophiles and no one does romance better than the French (or food, really). We couldn’t have asked for a better V Day dinner: everything was incredibly delicious, the ambiance was lovely and the service was great. Too bad it’s much more of a couple’s restaurant… Name: Bistro Français Location: 3124 M St NW (Washington, D.C.) Time: 7:30 pm on a […]
Disclaimer: this review actually comes from a recent Dean & DeLuca outing, where they so happen to sell Astro Doughnuts. I have not (yet) been to Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, but plan on a visit in the near future (to sample all vegetarian options). While running some errands on M (a favorite hobby of mine), my friends and I stopped by D&D for a snack and, naturally, I gravitated to the pastries section. A little while ago I read […]
Behold, Kafè Leopold: one of Georgetown’s finest gems and loveliest eateries. This Austrian café, or “kafè” to maintain the authentic European flair, is renowned for its incredible pastries, delicious brunch, divine espresso drinks, and varied lunch/dinner options. Is there anything that Kafè Leopold can’t do?! I have been thrice: once for a brioche bread (oh my goodness), once for a hot latte and yogurt parfait with granola/berries (I’ve never experienced parfaits in the quite the same way), and once for […]

Before I begin my praise for PAUL’s pastries and this apple tart’s splendor, I will apologize for my recent paucity of posts. It’s midterm season here at Georgetown and my studying has demanded more time than I’d like to spend. The good news is that I’m returning with a review of ONE OF THE BEST TARTS I HAVE EVER CONSUMED. MY, OH MY. My last review of PAUL covered a bisque and a croissant, which were both delicious, but this one […]

In tandem with my last Pie Sisters post, I’m writing another review on their absurd delicacies. As you know, I adore this bakery with all of my heart and enjoy each experience there like it’s my first. This second review refers to an afternoon when a good friend of mine and I grabbed lunch at Sweetgreen and headed over to Pie Sisters for dessert. Name: Pie Sisters Location: 3423 M Street NW (Washington, D.C.) Time: 2:30 pm on Friday Order: […]
In tandem with my Baked & Wired post, I’ll catch up on my last special Georgetown Cupcake adventure. In October (I know, super long ago), I went with my best friend to try out the pumpkin cheesecake cupcake that our roommate recommended. I’d been a bunch of times before and a few times after. The truth is that Georgetown Cupcake is insanely overrated; I went during GAAP weekend for the first time and did the typical touristy picture, once again […]
Even though I don’t eat any meat or poultry, I still was dying to try out Good Stuff Eatery when it joined the slew of restaurants on M. During my first week back, I went for the first time. Since then, I’ve been twice and plan on going again. Three times in a semester might not seem like a lot, but it’s a pretty solid number considering how unhealthful the food is and how often I actually trek past campus’s […]
