Back in November local DC food blog Girl Meets Food celebrated it’s 3rd blogiversary and decided to spread the love by giving away over $400 in gift cards for readers to enjoy at local DC restaurants. I was lucky winner #1 and was very excited to receive the $100 gift card to Granville Moore’s in the mail a few days later. Not a bad deal to be able to say: ‘Date night is on me, honey.’
We started the night by checking out the Boat Parade of Lights at the Southwest Waterfront. As promised, the hoopla was complete with ‘snow’ and warm cider that we purchased to enjoy (and keep our hands warm!) while watching the boats. The whole event felt very festive and I think we’ll make this an annual event to attend every holiday season!
Moving on to our dinner date, we arrived at a busy Granville Moore’s but happily agreed to wait the anticipated 45 minutes by having a drink at the bar. 70 minutes later we finally got seated, 1 drink had turned into 2. Well, maybe 3. We were seated upstairs at a cozy nook by the window. We were as happy as a couple on their 1st date until we noticed that our cozy corner was quite the drafty corner. Not to worry, we were quickly moved to another table and ordered away. This is not a place to be fussy, you’re here simply for the food, the beer, the rustic decor and the authentic H street experience. Love it or leave it.
I started with the grilled white asparagus which was delicious. This girl loves her frisee and perfectly poached egg. The flatbread was delish too and much to the liking of le boyfriend. We moved on to devour the bison burger and the ‘Bleu’ moules. Delicious all around- expect the burger to be greasy and the moules to taste like a blue cheese sans crackers, just like it all should. Check out the rest of the menu here.
Bavik, Delirium Nocturnum and a Blanche de Bruxelles washed down the meal and left us with no room for dessert. We grew quite fond of the darker variant of Delirium and we’ll be back for more. Thank you Girl Meets Food for making a lovely date night possible for us and congratulations again on turning 3…or 21 as it was. I hope 2013 is the year you continue ‘to do whatever we want, however we want, when we want and to whomever we want’. Cheers to you!
