Great Eats: 901 Restaurant

Recently I had one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time at the Penn Quarter’s 901 Restaurant.The menu is filled with unique American-Asian cuisine.  I loved that the menu actually was lit.. so when you opened it you could see everything perfectly! I found the appetizers to be delicious and the meat so tender. I highly recommend the Craft Beer Satays which are 901 lager marinated chicken and beef tips in a curry peanut sauce, with Thai basil. I found the Chinese Spiced Duck Breast to be so tender too. The sweet potato puree it was in was delcious! Another hot item is the citrus XO Shrimp over polenta cake which was a hit at our table.I would definitely go back and bring a group of friends! Such a warm atmosphere!

This tender chicken over yakisoba noodles reminded me of my visits to Japan!

the menu lights up!

901 had a great winter drink menu

Fashion’s Night Out

Pounding Rain, 2 and half hours sitting in traffic.. nothing could keep me away from Fashion’s Night Out. I joined good girlfriends to toast FNO Georgetown at the VIP reception held at L2. From their we made our rounds to Dean & Deluca, Nectar Skin Bar, Intermix  and more. We enjoyed Citronelle’s fashion show and great wining and dining at Peacock Cafe’ after hours.  Check out more pictures from DC’s most fashionable night!

Oh and of course you know who had to partake in FNO! Check out her new boots.

Big congrats to Kirk McEwen and Mike O’Meara the funny co-hosts of the Kirk &  Mike Show on 105.9 The Edge. I love being part of this show daily and can honestly say they always help put me in a good mood early in the morning even when I’m fighting it.

Eye Gazing Party sparks “Love at first sight?”

A new dating trend hits the DC area. They’re called Eye Gazing Parties. With men on one side women on the other the idea is to stare into each others eyes for 2 minutes. The hope is that eye contact can spark a connection. A recent party was held at Tabaq Bistro on U Street Northwest.
