If you buy into the agenda, the holidays are a time for love and togetherness, but let’s be realists. This isn’t a time for people to let down their guards and be vulnerable with the people they care most about, this is a time to keep each other on our toes. You will have last minute guests that drive you up the wall. You will get that 99th hour invite to a dinner where you’re supposed to BYOB and BYOF (the f is for forensics food). You will have that person who promised they wouldn’t buy ...

Why a Local-Foods Grocer is Responding to Trump by Selling Non-Local Foods

When Glen’s Garden Market first opened in Dupont Circle four years ago, employees donned shirts with a “no bananas” logo on the back. After all, sourcing products from the District and six states within the Chesapeake Watershed was a key principle of grocer Danielle Vogel’s environmentally minded market. Non-local necessities such as (recycled) paper towels were […]

Bánh Mì D.C. Sandwich

3103 Graham Rd., Falls Church; 703-205-9300

It’s too bad there’s no place to sit, because these sandwiches deserve to be lingered over—though just try not to down the whole thing in less than five minutes. The bánh mì, an ingenious mingling of East and West, takes as its starting point the baguettes and pâtés that are the basis of every French picnic, lightens them (the baguettes are made with rice flour, the pâtés thinly spread), and then piles ...

The Best Cheap Restaurants for Vegetarians Around DC

Bob’s Shanghai 66

Chinese/Taiwanese It tells you something that on a menu encompassing dim sum; dumplings (there’s a special window to watch the cooks stretch and roll the dough); and Cantonese, Szechuan, and Taiwanese dishes, one of the most winning items is the simplest: a plate of snow-pea leaves. They hit the table tender and crunchy, the slight vegetal bitterness leavened by generous spoonfuls of fortified cooking liquid. When it’s on—and lately it has been very on—Bob’s delivers this degree of effortless excellence across the board, in teeming bowls of delicately wrought soups that are best shared with a group, ...

The 29 Best Cheap Restaurants to Get a Drink Around Washington

Bayou Bakery

Some chefs credit their Michelin-starred mentors for shaping their culinary vision and style. David Guas gives biggest props to his 69-year-old aunt Boo, a cooking-school teacher who hails from Abbeville, Louisiana. Her Cajun-country influence is the reason he keeps his zesty jambalaya extra-moist—unorthodox trick: a little tomato purée—and his crawfish étouffée stays on the mild side (dress it up with hot sauce if you like). Not everything nods toward Louisiana: A BLT with roasted tomatoes is simply a really terrific BLT, and a kale Caesar has nudged its way onto the menu. Guas spent most of his career ...

The ’Wiching Hour: Glen’s Garden Market’s Yankee Pot Roast

Source: Washington City Paper Young & Hungry

Wiching01

The Sandwich: Yankee Pot Roast

Where: Glen’s Garden Market, 1942 8th St. NW

Price: $10

Bread: White sandwich roll

Stuffings: Cider-braised beef, roasted onions, roasted carrots, apple slaw, cheddar cheese

Thickness: 3.5 inches

Pros: Roasted veggies give this sandwich an extra dose of flavor without sloppy and unnecessary condiments: The carrots are so soft and sweet, they’re almost like jam. The cabbage in the slaw gives the sandwich some necessary crunch and a bit of sourness that cuts through four thick slices of beef.

Cons: While most pot roasts highlight slowly cooked, tender meat, the beef in this sandwich feels ...

There will soon be a new place to find D.C.-made chocolates, vinegars, beers, and more in Shaw. Glen’s Garden Market, which sources nearly everything within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, will open its second location at 1924 8th St. NW at noon on Saturday.

The new location is less than half the size of its Dupont counterpart, but its beer garden will be twice as big. The outdoor space is getting an awning and will have heaters, fans, and lights so it can be used year-round. Pints of local beers will continue to be $4 at all times.

The main differences between the locations ...

Fair Winds Siren’s Lure

Where in Town: Glen’s Garden Market, 2001 S St. NW

Price: $4/10 oz.

Green for Less Green
Glen’s Garden Market in north Dupont Circle is well known for its commitment to sourcing nearly all its artisanal products and prepared food ingredients from within the Chesapeake Bay watershed, a 64,000 square–mile area that cuts across six mid-Atlantic states (and D.C.). But lesser known is the fact that the eco-friendly store is also one of the better craft beer spots in town, with a modest but well-curated bottle shop and a bar featuring eight taps and growler fills. ...

Handsome Beer Company, D.C.’s latest craft brewing venture, launches this weekend and will hold a slew of events over the next two weeks across the District and as far away as Annapolis, Baltimore, and Frederick.
