Food.Fun.Stuff: Bond 45 Opens & My Kid Eats Octopus

[ 1 ] February 2, 2010 |

>>>Bond 45 is open. Recently, we attended a media dinner @ the new National Harbor restaurant and left with one thing on our brain…chocolate mousse. If you read JKGF regularly, you know how we feel about sweet stuff (*usually not our cup of tea…) but this restaurant has a catchy presentation that makes you eat with your eyes and ohh, with your mouth. The chocolate mousse was the star of the show (*other headliners included the Burrata which is cream filled mozzarella and the Maryland Jumbo Crab Steak). The mousse was brought out in large tin buckets like the ones pictured above. For the kid at heart this is the perfect way to present treats! Try the headliners listed above and stay away from the Artichokes alla Giudea (*they remind us of burnt potato chips…). Now back to daydreaming about that mousse and whipped creamed topping…Yum.

The Where:
Bond 45
149 Waterfront Street
National Harbor, MD 20745
(301) 839-1445

>>>Want your kids to eat more like the well-rounded foodie you are?? Nancy Tringali Piho, author of My Two Year Old Eats Octopus, will be at Michel Richard’s Citronelle to help you find the answer (*and sign copies of her book, of course). Piho has concluded its flavor that attracts children to a broader palate, not fancy or expensive dishes. Bring the kids along on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 for an evening of picking apart the pickiest eaters: children. Citronelle has created a special menu for the evening: Pearl Pasta Risotto, Lobster Burgers, Braised Short Ribs and a Chocolate Bar. Two guesses which one will be the favorite of the kids…

The Where:
3000 M street, NW
Washington, DC

The Money: $95 for Adults, $37 for children under 12 and books will be available for purchase ($15)

More Info: You Must RSVP @ or @ (202) 625-2150
