Mount Vernon: Cafe Fili

One of Mount Vernon’s newest spots, Cafe Fili has become one of my go-tos recently. The Mediterranean inspired cafe has plenty of dishes that always hit the spot. Recently, my Girlfriend and I stopped in for a weekend lunch and as usual, were blown away by the flavors […]

Navy Yard, D.C.: Chloe

Navy Yard is seriously just exploding. Something new and fantastic is popping up every week. Most recently, I checked out Chloe by Haidar Karoum and I’m already thinking about my next trip. The space was beautiful. And each bite was more delicious than the last. My girlfriend and I […]

Food Truck: B’more Greek

Hampden: Souvlaki

Mediterranean Dips

Columbia: Hickory Ridge Grill

Update: Hickory Ridge Grill is now closed. In one of those many strip malls in Columbia that looks exactly like the rest of Howard County, there’s Hickory Ridge Grill. The restaurant specializes in American food, with a Mediterranean twist which is perfect because my friends and I were […]
