Le Diplomate DC

It’s been quite awhile since I have done a restaurant review, but this post is long overdue for multiple reasons.  Chris and I have been planning to have a night out at Le Diplomate for a little over a year now.  It was supposed to be our Christmas present to each other last year.  We just…

Miso Brussels Sprouts

I went out to brunch at Pennsylvania 6 DC on Saturday.  I was truly impressed with the entire experience from the my steak and eggs to the bottomless mimosa bar.  However, my favorite part of this brunch was the fried miso Brussels sprouts.  I had never thought to use miso in Brussels sprouts before, but…
