You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

Ed. Note: Wait till they hear about Casa Luca…
Which D.C. restaurants are popular with national politicians?
According to a investigative website, it’s these:
Charlie Palmer Steak
Joe’s Stone Crab
Acqua Al 2
Ed. Note two: A similar unofficial and unaffiliated study has revealed that Dan Silverman spent most at Blue 44, Nanny O’Briens, Vace, Soapstone Market, Raku and 2Amy’s. Just being honest, if I had my druthers it’d all go to Pho Viet, Himitsu and Sushi Taro. What have your studies revealed?
DC restaurants where members of Congress spent most from their leadership PACs (since 2013):
Charlie Palmer Steak $252k
Joe’s Stone Crab $192k

Casa Luca $146k
