Whether you’re a visitor or a local, Downtown LA has transformed from taco carts and ramen joints into a progressive food scene worth sinking your fork into. Check out this list of great restaurants to try next time you’re scoping out where to eat in DTLA.
Found on the east side of the nation’s capital, Penn Quarter has become a bustling and exciting area of Washington DC where both tourists and locals gather for arts, entertainment, sports and history. A stroll through its streets will lead you past lots of historical sites, including the J. Edgar Hoover Building, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, National Portrait Gallery and the National Mall.
The most popular of poultries, chicken has been a staple on menus of all cuisine types for centuries. Whether grilled, smoked, roasted or fried, this easy-to-love bird has earned a reputation as a solid menu standby — the original white meat to order up when nothing else seems appealing and no adventuresome entree will do.
We love documenting our nights out on social media. Whether it’s who you’re with, where you’re at or what you’re drinking, we can’t help a little snap and share action. The photo fun is even better when the subjects are not only eye-catching and ready for the drinking, but oh-so-tasty.
As summer heats up, we just want to chill out — and what better way than with a deliciously sweet treat? Scoop up some sorbet, go for the gelato or get into all sorts of ice cream to find that perfect summer dessert for you.
Drink in these beautiful summer days with a refreshing cocktail in hand. There’s no better way to soak up the sun than with your feet up and some tasty beach drinks to cool you down. Even if you can’t jetset off to Jamaica or boat over to the Bahamas, you can spend the day living like you have. Beat the heat with a blended margarita or kick back with a coconut and a straw.
Once a breakfast-only tradition, eggs have made their way into every meal of the day and we couldn’t be more egg-cited. Wake up to lots of egg styles — like scrambled, fried or sunny side — take a mid-day break for deviled eggs, try a refreshing tuna tartare with an egg plopped on top, stir one into a hearty bowl of pasta or whip them into a delicious sauce to pour all over the perfect entree.
Can’t keep your hands off corn? We get it. It’s even harder to pick a favorite way to eat it — grilled, popped, baked or boiled. How is it possible we’ve discovered so many amazing ways to enjoy this bright yellow veggie? We’ve had 10,000 years to tinker with new corn dishes since the indigenous people of Mexico first domesticated maize, more commonly known as corn.
Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? Who cares, it’s delicious! The great tomato debate has kept us intrigued since we first realized this fruit was sitting on the veggie side of the stands. But while you may say tomato and others say tomahto, there are too many tasty types of tomatoes to call the whole thing off.
It’s hard to imagine life without pickles — those crunchy delights straight out of the jar, the tangy, sweet surprises tucked into a burger, or the sliced spears served fresh, ready for the tasting on the side of your plate. When we hear the word “pickle” we tend to think of the classic cucumber variety (which goes by “gherkin” if you’re passing through the UK or Ireland), but there are plenty of other pickled foods, like vegetables, fruits and even meats, that can make the transformation, too.
