Toro Toro DC

I swear that half of my friends were born in the last week of February.  It is already a short month, and then I typically have all these birthday activities packed into that one week.  That means I get in a ton of socializing, food, and booze into my schedule. My friend Andrew (not Andrew…

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…
