Nommin’ Out: Celebrations at Agora

26 Jan

First, thank you to all of those who have humored me with this blog endeavor; I reached 1500 hits this weekend!! Who would have thunk it.  This blog’s milestone and a good friend’s 25th birthday led a group of us girls to Agora on 17th and R st NW.

Agora is the second best brunch deal in the district, just behind Local 16 on U street.  Their brunch “is served from 11am to 3pm, Saturday & Sunday. A la carte or pre-fixe. All dishes served as ready. Unlimited pre fixe brunch – $32.99. Choose as many brunch items as you like from our entire brunch selection. (pre fixe menu limited to two hours, seating ends at 2:30pm). Includes bottomless supply of any of the following: mimosa, bloody mary, champagne, house vodka / gin / rum / tequila house gin&vodka martinis”.  Parties have two hours to enjoy literally anything and everything on the menu.  The servers are attentive, pleasant, and your glass will never be left empty.  Below were some of the menu superstars from our Saturday:

Challah French Toast

Nommin’ Out/In: Greek Spot

6 Jan

Image

I’m back after a holiday hiatus!  Hope you all had marvelous Christmases, Hanukkahs, Kwanzaas, etc and are back on that work grind. I’m devoting this post to my house’s new tradition: Seamless Sundays.  Basically, most of our Sundays are spent lounging on the couch, watching stellar movies, and ordering (at least) one meal via Seamless.  In case you’ve been living under a rock, Seamless is an online food-ordering platform that saves lives.  Seamless has it all- Italian, Chinese, Thai, Sushi, Burgers, Mexican, and even Malaysian for those of you feeling adventurous.  My favorite place to order from resides in the Greek category, and aptly named Greek Spot. Located just off of U street NW on 11th street, Greek Spot produces quite possibly the best gyros ever made.  The $6.75 lamb gyro (they also have veggie) has thin strips of meat, lettuce, tomato, feta and tzatziki sauce.  Paired with their peppery french fries and extra tzatziki, this meal is sure to take your Sunday from sub-par to incredible.  I have also tried the gyro platter (pictured) that comes with orzo and the Greek burger, both of which are bomb. You can order online at Seamless, Greek spot’s website online ordering, or by phone at (202) 265-3118.  I highly encourage you to add this spot to your dining repertoire, and feel free to adopt Seamless Sundays as part of your own lifestyle. It’s fantastic.
