Welcome to BYT’s newest “hot damn, how could I live without this” column, Eating Out. We’ll be highlighting one food or booze special event every night of the week. From the best happy hours in the city to the uber expensive $500 per person tasting menus, there is something good to eat or drink every single night in this city and we want to help you find it. And yes, we get the joke.
Close your eyes, take a bite and you’ll swear you’re in Japan. In honor of The Source’s 10th anniversary, they’re taking you on a culinary trip to Japan, featuring all of the sushi, dumplings, ramen and desserts you could eat. Of course, you’re going to need something to drink with all that food, and The Source has you covered there too. Expect plenty of Japanese whisky and sake straight from the barrel.
Comida Cubana Book Release Party @ Cotton & Reed
Spend your night drinking rum cocktails and skimming through Marcella Kriebel’s second cookbook. Comida Cubana focuses on Cuban cuisine (surprise!) and is packed with Kriebel’s delightful illustrations. Grab a daiquiri and start planning out all the Cuban meals you’re going to be making.
Buy On Get One for $1 @ All About Burger
I love burgers, you love burgers and we all love cheap burgers. Order a burger at All About Burger and they’ll give you a second for $1. With prices that low, how can you afford not to buy it?
Get ready to fill up on some food trucks and get weird to some live DJ’s, the first night of Annandale’s night market is here. You can expect food trucks like DC Fried Chicken, Buena’dillas, Cap Mac, but regardless of what you got for, we recommend you finish it all off with a helping of Snocream.
Brewers Brunch @ Hellbender Brewing Company
One of your favorite local brewers is teaming up with Shakshuka Shack for a boozy and delicious lunch collaboration. There will be all the beer you could possibly dream of, as well as multiple courses of shakshuka, hummus, baba ganoush and some award winning baklava. Heaven is a place on earth.
Your week looks delicious.
