Palena Cafe's cheeseburger is understated, balanced, and packed with such dense flavor, it might catch you off guard (in a good way).
'Cleveland Park' on Serious Eats
Since its opening a little more than a decade ago, Cleveland Park's 2Amys has become a household name in Washington, DC. Even as the Neapolitan pie scene becomes increasingly more crowded, there has yet to be a real contender to challenge 2Amys' reign for best pizzeria in the District. That said, we recently became aware of the glaring omission of never having formally reviewed 2Amys' pies here on Slice. So, to remedy this, we made it out to Cleveland Park to check in on how the pizza is doing at the longtime DC favorite.
Ripple's Grilled Cheese Bar operates on a small counter, complete with a meat slicer, panini press, and an array of cheeses. You can get the Stinky Pete ($9) made with "hideously smelly" Torta la Serena cheese, asparagus, and anchovies; and Krusty Krab ($11), made with jumbo lump crab and béchamel.
Sugar Magnolia, a new ice cream sandwich shop by the owners of Ripple, opened its doors in D.C. We dropped in to see what's in the freezer.
