It’s been a little while since I updated my blog, buttttt I’m back and ready to write! My first post back revolves around one of my favorite things – city dining. I am truly a foodie at heart. This week I ventured out of D.C. and over to a restaurant called Raku in the city’s neighboring little sister – Bethesda, Md.
The self-proclaimed Asian, Sushi & Sake joint is to die for. Here’s what I snagged during my friend’s birthday dinner (clearly margs are a must during birthday festivities!) –
Sushi lovers in the DMV, you’re definitely going to want to check this place out.
Fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and a great ambiance – what’s not to love?
Last night a group of nine of us headed over to Founding Farmers to celebrate my friend Lyndsay’s birthday. First of all, there’s nothing better than celebrating a birthday over delicious plates and delectable wine – in my opinion!
I’ve always heard amazing reviews on the place and I was excited to try it myself! Between our group, we probably ordered 15 separate plates – they were all mouthwatering. My friend Ali and I split the Lemon Meunière Diver Scallops – paired with butternut squash risotto and a lemon brown butter sauce – and Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese. Both were INCREDIBLE.
