Onions For Everyone!


Editors Note: Shameless self promotion

For all you ES DC residents, I have a food feature in this week’s AV Club, in the Onion weekly. You can pick up a copy on almost every street corner—today!

Teaser: “It’s lunchtime, and everyone in D.C. is eating at a posh steakhouse, right? Dark mahogany, pinstripe suits, large hunks of bloody meat…yeah, not even close: When it’s time for that much need break from the 9-to-5, everyone from construction workers to senior VPs head straight for the cafeteria. And not always for lunch, either—the work crowd snags a tray for breakfast, snack time, second lunch, a chocolate break, and even an early dinner…”

    Nice feature, Gansie! Interesting subject and a pretty good overview of what’s out there.

    One thing – it seems like the Onion omitted the quadrant information for each of the places you mentioned. I wouldn’t have noticed except Tim Carman’s Hot Plate this week reviewed a steak from the Capital Grille (Young and Hungry, indeed) and their address is 601 Pennsylvania, NW…pretty much the exact opposite of the SizzEx at 600 Penn, SE.

    yea, not sure why they don’t put the quadrant in there, they don’t do it for the reviews either.

    oh, and thanks, joehoya!

    I would give anything for a SizzEx Rueben today

  • 80 Proof October 19, 2007  

    mmm…SizzEx turkey rueben. So amazing. I think they only have it at the Capitol Hill location on 6th and Penn, SE. I’ve tried to get them at other SizzEx’s with no success.

  • JoeHoya October 19, 2007  

    Pretty sure they’ve got it at the location across from the Trader Joe’s in Old Town, but I doubt that’s going to be much help to you.
