I am navigating through figuring out a rhythm on the blog postings; i.e, twice a week, more, less? Social media can get tedious and hard to keep track of things you want to try, so I got to thinking – why not introduce another layer, especially with the long holiday weekend coming up. Eateries & Sip tips, ala My Simple Table. I am all about the experience and if I love it, I’ll post on it. Everyone must go!
First up, Founding Farmers. This was the motherlode for me. I had a lunch meeting in Tyson’s and had wanted to try this place for a while. I had the Chicken Salad Salad and cornbread and boy, was that a treat. Attentive waitstaff, great decor, the place was hopping! Make sure to make a reservation and trust me, use the valet parking.
Next up…Fig & Olive in DC/City Centre. First of all, great location. OMG. We might have overstayed our welcome, but it was worth it, every penny. They had a most delicious happy hour/cocktail menu, but just so you can drool, the Tuscan Artichoke, Mushroom Croquette & Crostini Trio. Get in my belly!
If you want to head to the Virginia countryside, get to Stone Tower Winery. The place is a heavenly retreat. The champagne was my favorite…I need to go back, stat.
Now, I kind of can’t help myself with sharing the following…I have wanted to keep them a secret but, that’s selfish. If you head up to Maryland…
Petit Louis Bistro in Roland Park; all I can say is settle in, and just…enjoy. I tried to break the code on the vinaigrette but it’s best leaving it to them. The place is lovely.
Zensations; owned by a friend, APOTHECARY OVERLOAD awesomeness. Ask for Jenny, tell her I sent you.
Woodberry Kitchen; delush, hip, relaxed, Fleetwood Mac playing in the back. They have everything and anything and you kind of can’t go wrong, and the staff know their stuff.
The Food Market: look at the Avocado Toast; need I say more?
I have many more to feature, so stay tuned. And if you have any hot spots to suggest, send me a tip and I’ll add it to my visit list!
