  1. He's doing some pop up times at tacklebox in cleveland park for 3 weeks later this month/early may. You can make a reservation a which directs you to CityEats. You need a credit card to hold the rez with a $65 no show fee.

    I'm in for Apr 25.

    1. Just what DC needs. [eye-roll]

        Based on what we tasted at Taste of the Nation, we would agree.

          Really? We weren't super impressed at Graffiato but we'd give them a 2d chance . I wonder if we should cancel the reservation..

            It was just a charity event, but I won't go to a $65 a head dinner when that amount would get me a screaming good meal with drinks and wine and Palena, Dino or Ripple on the same metro stop. Or a meal at Bar Pilar or St Ex. Or Hanks.

        1. Someone should open a strip club/small plates restaurant. Topless tapas!
