Photo Recap: 5th Annual Taste of DC - Day 2

Honest Abe and friends

Day two of the fifth annual Taste of DC managed to do the impossible... it matched Saturday's opening day, person for person and taste for taste (not to mention rays of sunshine.) Washingtonians returned to Pennsylvania Avenue in droves, feasting on a wide array of delicious bites, libations and great music/fun. Combined with the annual Safeway Barbecue Battle, it's safe to say DC has officially become a food festival mecca. Bon appétit!

Fish & Chips at Rí Rá Irish Pub

Rí Rá Irish Pub: Picture this: Ale-battered Atlantic cod with hand cut chips (AKA fries) and tartar sauce on the side... for just three bucks! Rí Rá Georgetown's signature tasting item may have been my only bite of the day; but odds are, it would have trumped any other offering in terms of taste and value. Flaky cod? Check. Generous portion? Check. Salty, authentic chips? Check, check. Wrap this sucker in newspaper, and I'd swear I was back on Dublin's Grafton Street.
