Best New Eatery in Dupont Circle

Best New Eatery in Dupont Circle

When it comes to discovering new food joints, social media is a beautiful thing.

It wasn’t until I saw a tweet by @DupontCircleDC did I think to try Food Corner Kabob House, located at 2029 P Street, for lunch.  It’s a good thing I saw it, because Food Corner Kabob is the best new eatery I’ve been to in Dupont Circle.

“Had lunch at new Food Corner Kabob in Dupont Circle (P St between 20+21) and was blown away at how good it was” the tweet read.  Following the statement was the link to Food Corner Kabob’s Yelp page, where it was receiving stellar reviews. 

Five out five stars on Yelp is…well…something to yelp about.

HAUGHTY COSMETICS LAUNCHES IN DC: Launch Event will Benefit Becky’s Fund

HAUGHTY COSMETICS LAUNCHES IN DC: Launch Event will Benefit Becky’s Fund

WASHINGTON DC----- Haughty Cosmetics, a new luxury makeup line founded by Michelle Coyle, will launch in DC with an event benefiting Becky’s Fund, a non profit organization focused on domestic violence awareness and education, on March 10. Haughty’s mission is to empower women to feel beautiful inside and out while raising money and awareness for domestic violence prevention.

Coyle, 29, founded Haughty after realizing that she could make a difference for countless women by combining her love of cosmetics with her passion to end relationship violence. The resulting product line pledges 50 percent of its profits to domestic violence prevention education. “I am so proud to be launching a company founded on one of my core beliefs: that true beauty comes from empowering others”, Coyle said.

Coyle is proud to partner with Becky’s Fund because they share a common life goal: preventing as many young women as possible from entering into violent and unhealthy relationships.

Best Salad I've Ever Ate: Dupont Circle

Best Salad I've Ever Ate: Dupont Circle

I feel kind of weird about this "Best Of" article.  Why?

Because of the fact I always write about how D.C. is the city of the hidden gem and that I don't believe I've ever written a "Best Thing I've Ever Ate" article about a chain restaurant.  

Regardless of the history of this column though, today I break the mold, and firmly stand by my statement that the Monterey salad at Chop't is the Best Salad I've Ever Eaten in or around Dupont Circle.

One Lounge Owner Celebrates 29th Birthday At His Home Base

One Lounge Owner Celebrates 29th Birthday At His Home Base

One Lounge Principal and Managing Member Seth McClelland celebrated his 29th birthday last night in the cozy confines of his own establishment.  

McClelland, a Virginia native, opened One Lounge, located at 1606 20th Street next to the Dupont Metro, just fifteen months ago, but the cocktail bar has already found its way onto the D.C. food and nightlife map.  A unique layout, laid back-atmosphere, and a real, true "lounge feel" are just some of the reasons One is making a name for itself.

If you haven't checked out One, you most certainly need to.  It's just different than most places in D.C...in a totally cool way.

I'll have a lot more about McClelland and the rise of One Lounge in the near future, but until then, happy birthday to one of the head honchos at one of Dupont Circle's special spots.
