Lotsa Food!

So this week is Restaurant Week! And I love trying me some new places to eat.
I am going to include one that did was not RW dining experience.
  • Co Co Sala - H and I went there on a Friday night (for V-Day, since she had to work the next night). My this is a yummy place. We started off with 2 delicious drinks (I had a MMM (Malted Milk Martini... it had Bailey's so of course I couldn't resist) and she had a Disia (Lychee Puree)) then ordered 4 Coco Bites (everything is small plate nowadays). My god they do good Mac and Cheese (we ordered one of each) as well as 2 sliders. We followed of course with Chocolate, going with the Aztec Experience with an extra order of tiramisu. So full and satisfied after that evening.
  • Georgia Browns - My RW Dinner. We went with beers with this meal. I went with the Black Bean Soup (meh.. it was okay), Sassafrass BBQ St. Louis Ribs (with Mac and Cheese.... this was so yummy. It just about fell of the bone) and Chocolate Pecan Pie (Good god this was good... chocolate with pecan pie. Who would have thunk it). H had Duck Spinach Salad (pretty good actually), Blue Cornmeal Fried Chicken (I liked it, also really good) and Coconut Cake (really good but not as good as the pie). Yet again, I left stuff. The breads (Cornbread stick and buttermilk biscuits) with Peach butter was fantastic!
  • Pinzimini - I took my Mom to lunch here. Not sure what to expect but it is a really nice modern restaurant. We both started with the asparagus crepes (big portion and really tasty), I had the pizza (all Italian meats) and my mom had the fish (Sole, breaded), both were very tasty and the portions were overly generous. We followed it with the tiramisu.

Also in the past week a number of us went to the DC Food and Wine Festival at the Reagan Building. So many wines. It further confirmed my love of German wines (so sweet).

My daughter took me to Ceiba (14th and G) for lunch was wonderful. She had a marvelous blackened fish sandwich and a Caesar salad; I had Peruvian ceviche and Jamaican jerk seasoned salmon with plantains, greens, and rice; we both had the tres leches cake and coffee for dessert. Needless to say, I didn't get much done the rest of the afternoon. This restaurant gets a huge thumbs up for excellence of food and great service.

I'm not a big restaurant weeker - it doesn't mesh well with vegetarianism but PS7 had a lovely nutty goat flatbread and gorgeous risotto. We had to get two desserts (to share, of course).
