Asia Nine has added a twist to its Asian Fusion cuisine:  Italian.  In celebration of La Dolce DC, the Penn Quarter restaurant has put a spin on Italian classics, Bolognese and Tiramisu, among other Italian favorites.  I had the opt to try the Braised Short Ribs with Thai Kaffir Curried Bolognese and the Thai Tiramisu a la Mode.  I think I’m liking this new fusion of the two cuisines…

Did you enjoy the DC State Fair last year?? If so and you enjoyed, then you will want to visit the bake sale fundraiser @ Zorba’s Café on July 17, 2011 (8:30 am -11 am).  Keep the festivities going, having a State Fair is a huge step in the right direction.
