REAL Restaurants in DC

When I heard about a place called Elizabeth’s Gone Raw  with only raw vegan food, it sounded intriguing enough to try despite being a fan of filet mignon.  When an opportunity presented itself to attend the presentation of DC’s first REAL Restaurants I signed up immediately.

Suffering from anxiety about summer time coming to an end, and not yet having been on a relax-by-the-pool-and-drink-sugary-cocktails type of vacation, I urged my friends to head down to Cantina Marina with me to watch the sunset and enjoy a few cocktails.

The Skinny: Cuba Libre DC

On a random Saturday night, I ended up at Cuba Libre with le boyfriend and company. The drinks were sugary sweet (‘Real boatdrinks!’ le boyfriend exclaimed) and the music was fun. The decor was different and we had a great time dancing the night away. When I was later invited to Cuba Libre for dinner, … Continue reading

Despite its rather masculine name, Bullfeathers managed to appeal to about 25 women who descended, thirsty and hungry, from a conference held on the Hill on Saturday morning in June.
