Given the recent holiday bustle, you may well have missed out on a bit of local news. Here's some stuff that may have flown under the radar.
Did you know Sticky Rice (1224 H Street) has a kids' night? It's true. Every Tuesday from 5-7pm kids under the age of 12 eat free off the kids menu (download). Have you heard that Sticky Rice now has bento boxes? Six different choices for $10 each. Try one next time you stop in for lunch.
Over at the Argonaut (1433 H Street) they have expanded their popular weekend brunch. You can now enjoy full brunch service on Thursday & Friday (10am-3pm), as well as Saturday & Sunday.
Just before Christmas white paper went up in the windows at Steak & Ice. Rumors had circulated for more than a month that the owners were considering a possible format change. Jessica Sidman of the Washington City Paper managed to extract a little more info on what exactly is going down at 1320 H Street, but it's very sketchy on detail at the moment.
The blog Best Thing on the Menu has some suggestions for your next visit to Taylor Gourmet (1116 H Street). The author is particularly partial to the Cottman Avenue (a chicken cutlet with pepperoni, roasted red peppers, basil, & fresh mozzarella). My current favorite is the Queen Lane (spicy Italian sausage with eggs, super garlicky broccoli rabe, & provolone).
Interested in the would-be Angelico's location (1421 H Street)? You can lease it for $5,250.00 a month ($35 a square foot).
Remember those DC firefighters instructed to sit in their parked firetruck in Trinidad? Someone has been breaking into the firefighters' cars while they are parked away from their home station.
