Food.Fun.Stuff: Upgrade You

[ 0 ] December 9, 2009 |

The restaurant scene in the District is booming, everyday there is something new to see or somewhere to be seen.

>Michael Landrum (*Ray’s Hell Burger) leads the pack today with his new plans to expand his brand to include a wine bar, a larger space for his burger operation and a burger joint that will feature wild game. He also has plans to open a seafood venue in Arlington and he’s working on a project in NE Washington. Busy man. We are looking forward to the wild game burger which takes us back to our time in South Africa, where it’s infamous for featuring wild game on the menu. More info here.

>Bourbon Steak turns One:-) Aren’t firsts the best? Michael Mina is pulling out all the stops in celebration of the restaurants first year @ the Four Seasons Hotel. From December 12-19, 2009, the restaurant will feature a special menu featuring Lobster corn dogs (*extra Yum.), BBQ pork baby back ribs and specialty cocktails Winter Sazerac (*Rye, Coffe Syrup & Bitters) and Original Sazerac (*Cognac, Peychaud’s and simple syrup). The menu celebrates the restaurants best bar bites from the past year and commemorates its “paper” anniversary. Additionally, there will be daily gift certificate giveaways and more special cocktails. Happy Anniversary!
