Ever since I got to Georgetown, I’ve been dying to try out Sequoia, a popular restaurant on the Waterfront that’s well-known for its brunch menu (or at least, that’s what it seems like on my Instagram feed). Back in February, a big group of us went to Sequoia to celebrate one of my roommate’s birthdays for dinner. So alas, I tried the famed eatery. Disclaimer: This review is about a lobster dish served at Sequoia. Before the lobster mac ‘n cheese dish, I […]
One of the many things I inherited from my grandmother is my love of flowers. I often joke with my friends that I’d rather receive flowers than chocolate (not jewelry, of course…). And of course, spring flowers are my absolute favorite. Luckily for me, the cherry blossom festival is in full swing here in Washington, D.C. and I live pretty close to the Tidal Basin, aka the cherry blossom jackpot. I convinced my best friend to trek over with me […]
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 […]

My friends and I carry a tradition of going out to dinner in Georgetown for each other’s birthdays. Last year I went to Peacock Café and loved it, but I wanted to go somewhere new. Although I had been to Mai Thai before, I wanted to go again and knew it’s a crowd favorite. Name: Mai Thai Location: 3251 Prospect Street NW (Washington, D.C.) Time: 7:30 pm on Friday (with a reservation) Order: Philadelphia Roll ($5.95) and brown rice side […]
On September 22nd, my best friend and I cabbed it to the Verizon Center to see the ever-so romantic, charming, Canadian crooner Michael Bublé. We’ve been forever fans of this insanely talented singer and fell even more in love with each joke, song, and dance. Everyone knows that Michael Bublé is a hopeless romantic with a light-hearted, self-depracating sense of humor, as seen through his late night television interviews, famous concert YouTube videos, and SNL appearances. I just didn’t know […]
Behold, Farmers Fishers Bakers: one of my Georgetown obsessions. Right on the waterfront, it’s one of Georgetown’s gems (Kafè Leopold being another major one) and local favorites. They serve lunch/dinner, dessert, and brunch – which is my absolute favorite there. I first went last spring and experienced the Farmers Fishers Bakers brunch extravaganza: yogurt parfaits, salsa and guacamole, french toast, candied popcorn, salads galore, etc. It’s on a running to-do list of mine to go again and brunch at FFB. All of […]
