Post food critic Tom Sietsema’s weekly chat is always a must for restaurant recommendations, dining etiquette and news on the latest comings and goings in D.C. area kitchens. This week, Tom led his chat with some of the hour’s juiciest (tastiest?) tidbits.
The subject of brunch comes up a lot here. Always a good place to start the weekend, Cashion's Eat Place is about to get more interesting. Or, as chef John Manolatos put it in an email to me, “No more Starbucks pastries for Adams Morgan on Sunday mornings.”
Lauren Bonfiglio , his pastry chef, will be offering warm doughnuts, sticky buns, bear claws and sweet corn bread.
There are about a dozen new additions to Cashion’s brunch menu. The savory dishes include scrapple with a vegetable cake, a pork burger, fish & chips, huevos rancheros and fried oyster po boy, “which will cure any night of drinking you might have walked into the previous night,” promises Manolatos. (The line starts with me.)
