After I graduated from Johns Hopkins with a writing degree, I attended culinary school at L'Academie de Cuisine. Now, I work as a garde manger, saute and grill cook at a fine-dining D.C. restaurant and I also write for my blog, D.C. Food Rag.
Thank you for the tip about J. Chocolatier. That's too bad, but at least the cookies will still be available!
It always seems like there are limited options around Union Station and you definitely highlighted the good ones! Johnny's Half Shell is high on my list of places to try next in D.C.
Baked and Wired is great, but the lines are ridiculous! I'm a big fan of Tryst and Counter Culture coffee - haven't heard of Filter before. Will have to try it out!
cool places, will have to check them out. Also look at Hana Japanese Market on the U and 17th Street. It's a tiny little market but they have some good stuff (Mai Ploy sauce and more!).
Cashion's is great! I also like Tryst right up the street in Adams Morgan, and Open City across the bridge in Woodley Park.
I love Market Lunch. Amazing pulled pork sandwich!!!
