InterContinental Wharf DC Hotel Review

InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf front entrance

Room with a (Majestic) View

It's literally been months since our last post. COVID-19 has turned the world upside down, and DC Outlook is no exception. But life goes on, and we decided to venture out. Cross town, to the District Wharf and the exquisite InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf. The kind of place that transcends the term "staycation" into something sublime. After all, if you're finally going to go out, why not go all the way?

Elevation Burger at Mane Grill Food Review

Elevation Burger with Classic Olive Oil Fries

Restaurants are closing at an alarming rate, due to COVID-19; so the opening of a new one (and a burger joint, to boot) a mere two blocks from home was cause for celebration. Elevation Burger at Mane Grill opened two days ago, on the same day the Smithsonian's National Zoo reopened. Needless to say, I immediately secured a reserve entry pass (available here) and showed up today at 2:30 sharp, to try them out. It requires a bit of a walk (it's closer to the less traveled Harvard Street Bridge entrance) but as I've proven time and time again, I'll go to the ends of the Earth for a delicious burger and fries. Let's see if this first visit was worth the trip...

Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar Food Review II

Kam Lu Wantan at Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar

Sadly, the world is still being held hostage by COVID-19; but it's high time to get back to some sense of normalcy. In my case, that means returning to what I do best... eating. After months of home cooking and takeaway, I decided to visit one of my favorite restaurants in DC, Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar. Their bustling patio along L Street, NW was literally calling yelling out my name; and who am I, to say no to the best Peruvian food in the DMV?
