Nommin’ Out: Medium Rare

6 Nov

My carnivorous people, pay attention. Medium Rare restaurant, originally started in the Cleveland Park metro area of DC, has expanded to Barracks Row in Eastern Market! My coworker, a staunch Arlington-dweller, mentioned that I need to make it a priority on my restaurant list, and a DC recommendation from him is a big deal.  I shared my desire with a fellow steak lover, and made it a dinner stop this week.  Let me break it down for ya: they serve one thing for dinner only.  Its a $19.75 pre-fixed menu of rustic bread, garden salad, and special-sauce covered steak with hand-cut fries cooked to perfection just the way you like it.  The best part? They serve the steak and fries to you TWICE. Your dinner comes in two parts to ensure the steak and fries stay warm and amazing, #thoughtful.  Paired with a $30 bottle of red wine and I was a happy camper!

Nommin’ Out: Ulah Bistro on U Street

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

So recently us DC dwellers have been getting lucky with the evening weather.  No brow-beating sun, a nice little breeze, cool enough to actually wear the occasional pant.  To take advantage, my roommate and I decided to dine outside on U street.  We walked the few blocks from our house and settled on Ulah Bistro, where I have had brunch before but never dinner.  We sat near the sidewalk to easily/obviously people-watch while we chatted over a Moscow Mule.  These drinks are DELICIOUS, an absolute must summer cocktail.  Starving, we glanced at the appetizers and immediately tunnel-visioned to the Crab and Artichoke dip, because duh.  It arrived, and was basically a bowl of molten cheese with some think slices of bread to accompany it.  Don’t get me wrong- I love my cheese.  I eat more cheese in one day that is probably doctor-recommended.  However, I ordered CRAB and ARTICHOKE dip, not melted string cheese and parsley that would promptly fill me up before my entree arrived.  For $10, not great.   My dining experience wasn’t too deterred though; Ulah made up for the app with a delicious salmon Caesar salad.  My roomie got the fried chicken sandwich with duck fat fries (extra $2).  Those things… I die.  My advice: skip the pricey appetizer list and order an extra  cocktail and a side of Duck Fat fries for the table, or ideally just for yourself.  Trust me, you’re worth it.
