Things to do for November 21, 2013
Steak-Cut Bacon, Pecan-Pie Donuts and Bottomless Mussels
The weekend sees everything through gravy-colored glasses.
Pork Belly Buns in a Convenience Store
It’s time you buckled down and started training for Thanksgiving dinner. Exercise #1: eat these filling bao buns, like fenugreek pork belly with pickled mustard greens, from the chef behind the Ball or Nothing meatball truck. You can find him downstairs in the Oasis Grocery convenience store near Dupont. Naturally.
Richmond’s Finest, Popping Up in Gtown
Here tomorrow for your holiday-gifting pleasure (and your own pleasure): a pop-up by Richmond-born Ledbury. First, take a look at all the taxidermy they brought up. Cool. Then on to their Italian-cotton shirts, herringbone coats, cashmere scarves and a new quail-hunting collection. Never know when Cheney might call.
Your Steak-Cut Bacon Is Here
At Petworth Citizen’s new brunch, you could get a beet sandwich. Okay. But you could also get “steak-cut” bacon with pumpernickel and a poached egg, Bloody Marys with garlic and sriracha, and a rotating brunch punch. Go on, get the brunch punch.
Attention: Thanksgiving Donut Alert
Next week, it’s time to try something different with your pie. Like have it in donut form. Submitted for your approval: these huge Thanksgiving donuts from Astro—pumpkin-filled with vanilla glaze, apple-filled with cinnamon glaze and bourbon-caramel glazed with toasted pecans. You should still top them with ice cream.
Bottomless Pre-Holiday Mussels
And now, an early invitation to gluttony. Et Voila, the Belgian destination spot in the Palisades, is hosting a “Stretch Your Belly” party with unlimited mussels, frites and Belgian white beer. A suitable pregame to your bottomless mashed potatoes.
