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.
