Washington, DC

11th and Lamont St, NW

From La Tejana:

“Following last week‘s sold out event at Room 11, La Tejana’s Tex-Mex breakfast taco pop-up is returning tomorrow (Saturday 12/14 from 10 am – sellout) with a double batch of homemade flour tortillas, chorizo, migas, papas con huevo and boozy topo chico. Because holiday shopping is better when slightly buzzed and three breakfast tacos deep…

Shout out to everyone who came out last weekend (and waited patiently for their tacos – shorter wait times are guaranteed this weekend). Might even be a surprise or two in store”

Anyone take a taste last week?

Thanks to a couple of readers for sending word:

Queen’s English got a stop work order after their new vestibule was installed on Sunday morning. Gotta at least love the positive attitude about their sticker! But the real question is how did someone get someone from DCRA to come out at 9:26 am on a Sunday? I’ve put in illegal construction requests for bricks falling during business hours and months later got a closed notification email and a “how did we do?” survey request.” Read More

From a press release:

“Chef Alfredo Solis opens his newest venture, Anafre on Friday, November 22.

An anafre, meaning “portable oven” in Spanish, is traditionally a clay pot that has an opening in the bottom where hot coals are placed that then heat up the dish on top of the pot. The restaurant is an ode to Chef Solis’ mother who grew up on the Mexican countryside where she was tasked with cooking for the family. Since they lived without gas or electric, the anafre was their only stove. This style of cooking is interpreted in an open kitchen where most items will be prepared on over charcoal. Read More
