Friday Fun – Foodie Edition

March 9, 2018

FFpics-001 FFpics-002

Giant picture of me & some french fries for this one because this Friday Fun I’m switching it up a bit and doing something that caters more to my foodie side (hahahaha see what I did there!!) A couple of weekends ago I had the time to sit by butt down and inhale (gonna keep these coming haha) the Washingtonian Magazine’s article about their Top 100 Restaurants to try out in DC! And naturally I wanted to go to pretty much every single restaurant listed within the 5 pages but I decided to narrow down the list a bit based off of what my pocketbook could handle and ones that were more central to DC rather than father out in the suburbs!

Even so the list was still quite extensive so I decided to categorize it by the type of food for anyone craving a particular type 😀 I didn’t include any ones that I’ve already been to but maybe in a year I’ll update the list with my reviews of the ones that I’m able to cross off! If you’re reading this and you live in DC or are coming to visit hit me up if you want to go to one together!!
