restaurant roundup.

Over the past two weeks, we have been packing, moving and on the run so much that we have also been eating out a lot. So here is a combined restaurant round-up...

Taqueria Nacional just opened a couple weeks ago at 14th and T and man is it good and affordable! The inside is great and it is an old post office so they tried to keep the postal theme running throughout. More importantly, our tacos were fantastic, the frozen margarita was spot on and we loved the yucca fries. Definitely go check it out!

We went to Maple in Columbia Heights with Josh and Erin and it was great. Loved the inside. We sat at a tall table at the end of the bar and the food was really solid.

A couple of weeks we ended up at Izakaya with Seals. I had been wanting to get there for a long while and unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to expectations. The upstairs was interesting, the space is unique, the food, well, it left something to be desired....

A couple blocks from the house is Chinitos Burritos. We are happy to have some mexican nearby and last night we went to check out the burrito scene. If you are looking for the definition of a burrito bomb, you have found the right place. The burrito that Ben walked out with was huge. They were packed and hit the spot. We crossed the street into Gallaudet University and sat on the steps stuffing ourselves!

Piola is yet another opening on 14th street and pizza again, naturally we went to check it out! The space is really impressive, three big floors with space between the tables and great service. We had a great meal for four there, the pizza was solid (though of course nothing compared to Etto).
