Where’s Del Ray? It’s a charming neighborhood in Alexandria, just a mile or so from Old Town.
You might find yourself in Foggy Bottom without even realizing it. Maybe you drifted in from downtown, perhaps you meandered up from the National Mall. Maybe you walked down from Georgetown on the Rock Creek Park walking trail. Maybe you’re looking for a quick bite before a Kennedy Center show! No matter how you find yourself here, you’ll definitely want to eat!
I’m about to wow you… there’s more to food in Texas than Tex-Mex! On my recent trip to visit my friend Jill in Plano, just north of Dallas, we made sure to get the best of what Plano has to offer. So here are our recomendations, from biscuits to sushi to—you guessed it—Mexican!
D.C.’s neighborhood pride is real! Each neighborhood has its cool places to go, cool things to do, and cool food. Here are some of my favorites from Penn Quarter, which is the area around Pennsylvania Avenue, the National Archives, and adjacent to Chinatown. Take a look and bring your appetite!
When I decided to go visit my coffee-loving friend Jill in Plano, TX, I knew a post all about coffee would be a fun one to write… and research! Here are the best locally-owned coffee shops in Plano!
There’s a great selection, and even a few iconic restaurants Downtown. Take a look and pack your appetite!
Memphis has definitely undergone a revival since my parents lived there as newlyweds, and on our recent family trip back to the city where my dad went to optometry school forty years ago, we ate at some old favorites and tried out some newcomers. Here’s the best of what and where we ate in Memphis!
First up: Lebanon, Tennessee, where I spent about half my childhood and teenage years. This is where my family and I went to church, where most of my childhood friends lived, and where I still return every time I go home!
I have to urge you to put D.C. on your list of foodie bucket list destinations! D.C. restaurants have to be excellent to last around here, so when you find one with longevity, you know it’s for good reason.
Of all the neighborhoods in D.C., my personal opinion is that Georgetown has the best food! Businesses that thrive here have to be creative and original—no exceptions. So next time you’re in D.C., put in a little effort to walk or Uber into Georgetown (the closest Metro is a mile in either direction!). You won’t be disappointed.
