DC Experiences

Twice this week in DC, at Lunchtime we found ourselves in the DuPont Circle neighborhood. On Conn. Ave we stumbed into a Greek spot called Zorba's for a taste of Feta and olives. The food was delightful, but the smiling young man at the counter where one places orders, insured our experience would be a good one. My salad was the real thing, so fresh flavorful.
Today in a howling cold wind we rushed down 19th from the Metro about two blocks to C F Folks. It's a neighbors' diner on the ground floor of an office building, obsure for sure. It's also way more than good. Small menu, daily specials, & people who care about feeding others well. From my accent, the proprietor knew I was from the South. That brought on a discussion of how he orders crab meat (blue crab) as the season moves from Texas around & up to Chess. Bay.
Pasta Mia........just wonderful, absolutely wonderful.

    What is that a picture of?

      Zorbas and CF are both good, but within that radius I still swear by Kosta's.

        Me, too, but not in the howling cold wind.

          or in the blazing, swirling atmospheric face of Venus humidity known fondly as "August"

            I'd rather eat Greek Deli "al fresco" on the curb in mid summer than most other sitdown Greek places downtown. Just not in January.
