Washington, DC – 11/2/14 – DBGB and Rasika

DBGB
Sometimes when you have been out too late and maybe had one too many drinks, you need an old favorite. Even though the DC DBGB is new it still fit the bill. And while it had my NY favorites, executed perfectly, there were slight differences which kept it from feeling like a chain.

Rasika
It has probably been years since I have had Indian food and other than the chai, this certainly made me wonder why it’s been so long! Unfortunately sleep deprivation has caught up to me and I can’t remember what all of the dishes were so a few are missing descriptions. They were delicious whatever they were!
