You may have seen that Tom Sietsema, the longtime Washington Post food critic, recently decided to permanently end the awarding of stars. His column explaining his decision made a powerful case, just not the one he was trying to make. He didn’t convince me that he did the right thing by dropping ratings from his reviews; he convinced me ...READ MORE »
Ordering at Kreme ‘N Kone
I’m a few days late because I just got back from Cape Cod where I expected to have so many delicious things to eat that I’d have a hard time culling through them for this post. Turns out, not so much. I’ve been spoiled by my recent summer vacations in Maine, where the water isn’t quite ...READ MORE »
Lucky Danger, 455 I St NW, Washington DC (Mt. Vernon Square), reviewed January 12, 2021
You’ll be glad to know this isn’t a 2020 year-in-review. No one wants to relive that shit show, including me. I thought about doing a post on the best takeout I had in 2020. I even started flipping through my photos only to realize that, ...READ MORE »

Anafre, 3704 14th Street NW, Washington DC (Columbia Heights)
There were two big freak outs in the foodie community over the past month.
The first was AOC declaring it’s impossible to get a good bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwich in DC. Foodie Twitter got so bent out of shape that you think she’d done something completely unforgivable like wear a ...READ MORE »
Little Beast, 5600 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC (reviewed March 4, 2019)
This is a review of Little Beast, not I’m Eddie Cano! But it’s almost impossible to talk about one without the other ever since they opened within weeks of each other on a stretch of upper Connecticut that badly needed them both. It’s like when 30 Rock and ...READ MORE »
My family and I just got back from a ten-day trip to Rome, Florence, Milan and the Cinque Terra region of the Ligurian coast.
Before we get to the food, let me show you all the things we did other than eat.
We saw this.
And a bunch of things like this.
And several of these.
I knew I should’ve taken better notes but you ...READ MORE »
