It was a bit of a pain in the ass reviewing Black Squirrel. 80P first brought it to my attention when it got some press in the Post. Well, and the press declared that all food on Tuesday was *half off* !!
We ate some amazing, affordable fish dishes. And when I pitched it to review, we tried to go again on a double date with Tim and Alice. However that time the cheapness caught on (re: totally crowded) so the four of us were forced to eat at Red Rocks: an over-hyped pizza place where the pies are flimsy and the pepperoni is burnt. Ugh.
The next time 80 and I went to Black Squirrel it produced actual seats, but the new entree listing had already transitioned the fish off the menu. The wings were sad creatures – dry and lacking heat. But some of the food was totally worth its 50% off status. As were the Farrah Fawcett posters.
But alas, DCist just reported that the Tuesday special is a dead dog. Enjoy my outdated review nonetheless.
