Oh my God. The sable, the salmon – DO NOT sleep on the Salmon BLT – perhaps the best seafood sandwich in all Washington D.C. Neopol Savory Smokery is quite possibly the most under-hyped but best seafood in town. They currently have an outpost in Union Market and when I stopped by the new spot on Saturday they looked about ready to open in Georgetown on Grace Street. Grace Street, by the by, has quietly become a phenomenal little street not to be missed, bookmarked by Chaia Tacos and Dog Tag Bakery on one end and Sundevich and Grace Street Coffee on the other with more good stuff in between. Neopol will fit in on the block quite nicely. (more…)

Right? I’m so scared. I feel like we’ve been so lucky up to this point. Stock up your deet, or eucalyptus oil or whatever – stock up on something!!
Dear God was this good!!
From Manos de Maiz’s website:
“For us, corn is much more than just a commodity, for us it means family and tradition. At manos de maíz we source blue (conico) and white (bolita) heritage corn grown and harvested by Purepecha farmers. They have formed a network of 100 farmers whose families have worked the land for centuries and have passed their farming knowledge from one generation to another.
Taste tradition in a new way, try our maizope, a thick open faced tortilla made fresh by hand and served with our original recipes of seasonal toppings made with local ingredients. We have a rotating menu every week, please check our social media for updates.
BRISKET TINGA. Beef brisket, sweet chipotle, avocado, .
CHICKEN MOLE. Chicken breast, house almond mole, black beans, frisee.
BREAKFAST. Eggs, potato hash, green chili.
MUSHROOM. Wild mushrooms, charred poblano, crema.
CEVICHE. Tuna, lemon, habanero, corn, red onions.”
Their Facebook says:
“Making maizopes with Mexican heritage corn. Find us every Saturday at Mt Pleasant Farmers Market and Sunday at Eastern Market.”
Ed. Note: I’m pretty sure I was at Eastern Market on a Saturday but I think they said they’ll be switching back to the regular Saturday in Mount Pleasant, Sunday in Eastern Market schedule soon. I plan on stalking them regularly so I’ll be sure to update.

Just throwing this out there because I’m getting a few crazy messages from some after today’s earlier vandalism at 12th and L St, NW. That group is not representative of the hundreds of thousands of peaceful folks planning on Marching tomorrow in the spirit of love, hope and equality. For those who were planning to march tomorrow, I hope you are not in any way dissuaded from doing so because of the actions of this small, unrepresentative group.

Because they’ve been around for so long, I sometimes forget about their deliciousness. You can see Julia’s Empanadas full menu here. But make no mistake – the SALTEñAS are the best!
There are locations in Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle and Brightwood.
3000 Connecticut Ave, NW
Truth. You can see Duke’s menu here.
And they even brought back live Jazz (photo from last Sunday):
