What better way to spend a beautiful weekend than eating good food? Here are this week's restaurant picks.
Crepes at the Market
“Open year-round Saturdays and Sundays, a crepe is the perfect accompaniment to a walk through Eastern Market in the morning — you can get something sweet or savory. If you’re new to crepe-fare, I would suggest sticking with something more traditional (like strawberry, banana and Nutella, or ham and Gruyere), but if you’re feeling adventurous you can choose from a huge selection and make your own.”
— Rosemary D’Amour, intern
Florida Avenue Grill
“Florida Avenue Grill is probably the best spot near U Street for a late morning brunch; It's quick, friendly, and at a price that can't be beaten.
The place gets pretty busy but it's worth the wait. This DC institution has a huge breakfast special for just about $10.
It's not a place to take your mom. ... There's nothing fancy about it; but whether you're rubbing elbows with your neighbors at the counter, or squishing into a booth ... The grease is a guaranteed way to clear your mind.”
— Will Dugan, writer/producer
“Even if you’re a carnivore, Maoz is an awesome lunch pick. Their falafel sandwiches are massive — and they have a big bar of sauces, salads and slaws to dress up the fried chickpea goodness any way you want.”
— Mandy Jenkins, social media editor
Farmers & Fishers
“F&F is a place for good service, fresh food, and a pretty large menu with simple dishes at reasonable prices. The restaurant prides itself on high quality fresh food from family farms that use sustainable methods.”
— Jeff Sonderman, senior community host
