When we started our blog we included the category City Life. After two years I think we have only written a handful of posts about the awesome cities we live in (DC for me and NYC for Jessica). So I decided that is a shame we haven’t written more about all the cool adventures we have!
I have lived in DC for over two years and I still love it. While my commute can be rough at times DC’s charm still keeps me wanting more. How will I ever get rid of weekly trips to Eastern Market and runs that pass the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial? And all of the restaurants…oh the restaurants that are popping up like wild-fire.
My husband tore his achilles tendon this summer…whomp whomp. He is recovering wonderfully and we are very thankful that he had no issues, but it has been a difficult summer for him. The poor thing couldn’t do anything for over a month. We spent a lot of time watching documentaries and hanging out. Now that he is walking (and driving – YES) we have been packing in as many summer fun things we can do to make up for lost time. Nationals games, new restaurants and exploring all that DC has to offer. We recently tried Granville Moore’s on H street NE and it was DELICIOUS. Known for its Belgian beers and upscale bar food (moules/mussels and frites), it’s a real treat.
We have walked by it so many times without even blinking, it’s a true hole in the wall – BUT an amazing one. Open for lunch, brunch and dinner Saturday brunch is the meal to try. Walking into the restaurant takes you into a time warp with its dark cavernous interior. The beer selection is extensive and will please beer lovers alike. I tried the mussels and my husband had the sunrise burger (made with bison). Both solid choices. I washed the mussels down with a few mimosas and was one happy camper. My husband thought the food was a little heavy for a summer day, but would be a great go-to spot once it is cooler. I was super impressed with the mussels and will definitely go back to try some of the other specials. It’s a small restaurant so I wouldn’t bring a big group, but for one to four people it is a fun intimate place.
