Authentic Jamaican cuisine was underrepresented in DC, which is why Earl Chinn, founder of Negril, decided to open his own quick-service restaurant serving authentic Jamaican fare. Earl is a native to Jamaica, living in the city of D.C. and giving the people what they want: real Jamaican food!
At Negril you can expect to find things like jerk chicken, Jamaican beef patties, coco bread, curry goat, oxtail, and curry shrimp all on one delicious menu. The chefs are 100% Jamaican with experience cooking authentic Jamaican food which makes this the perfect spot for the city dwellers to finally get their taste of the islands. Don’t forget about dessert either, as Negril has the best tasting banana bread, carrot cake, and rum cake you could imagine!
This time of year, few things hit the spot quite as much as a cold beer—but not just any beer. For the best experience possible, you need a genuine, high-quality brew. In these moments, you can trust Astro Lab Brewing to offer just that.
You might decide to visit the Taproom directly, sipping your drink of choice. Or, you might order online to pick up in person or have a quality craft beer brought to your door. Either way, it’s easy to find your new favorite brews. If you do choose to visit the Taproom, you can treat yourself to a snack alongside your chosen beer. Options like a steak and stout pot pie, hummus, or an ice cream sandwich complete your Astro Lab experience, pairing your brew with the perfect bites.
Several reviewers note that Astro Lab’s menu has an especially strong focus on IPAs, which is worth noting if you have a particular preference for or against India pale ale. But, with a wide-ranging, ever-changing menu, you never know what gem you might find.
They say the easiest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so it’s only fitting that a day devoted to Dad would be full of delicious things to eat. And when the food surprises his taste buds with unique flavor combinations and unexpected ingredients? Even better! This Father’s Day, treat Dad to a delicious brunch spread centered around out-of-the-ordinary recipes like the ones below!
Sunny Mary: Even the most diehard enthusiast of the Bloody Mary is unlikely to have tried this unique cocktail, which gets its golden hue from pureed and strained yellow tomatoes. The tomatoes are combined with one cup chilled vodka, lemon juice, and, for a tart twist, the pickling juice from jarred pepperoncini peppers.
Loco Moco: Shortening the distance between your apartment and Hawaii, this unique twist on a traditional Hawaiian dish results in a one-plate meal that’s perfect for starting Father’s Day on a savory note. Beef patties are nestled atop a bed of hot, steamed basmati rice, then finished with a few spoonfuls of fresh mushroom gravy and a fried egg.
Chicken and Corn Bread Pancakes with Spicy Syrup: We bet you’ve never had pancakes quite like these! Made moist with the addition of buttermilk, these cornmeal-centric flapjacks pair perfectly with crispy fried chicken and a drizzle of Tabasco maple syrup.
Sunny’s Easy Bacon ‘n’ Egg Breakfast Pizza: Perfect for sharing, this recipe tops pizza dough with marinara sauce, sambal, maple syrup, and bacon. Shredded cheese is sprinkled over top, then joined by two eggs and popped into the oven until the eggs are set.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread: For the dad with the (not so) sweet tooth, this pumpkin chocolate chip bread strikes the perfect balance between chocolaty and earthy. Pair each slice with a cup of Dad’s favorite coffee.Read More
