67a. Eat at 10 new-to-me restaurants

Current Progress: 5/10

Sou'Wester - With a name so casual you'd think this would be kind of a dive, but it's actually a fairly upscale restaurant inside the super fancy Mandarin Oriental Hotel in DC. I was there because my friends and I were stranded in the culinary wasteland that is 12th Street and this was pretty much the only thing that Yelp said was open and near by. (Weekend meals in downtown DC can be tricky, as most places are only open Monday through Friday.) Anyway, we went and the burgers were quite tasty, the bread was yummy, and the corn fritters were kind of just weird. Probably not somewhere I'd go again, but it's nice to know it's there. Bonus: across the street is a CVS where I bought a bag of Brite Crawlers. It made my day.

First Watch - I'd never even heard of this apparently national chain of restaurants until my personal trainer encouraged me to go one morning after my workout. She did not lead me astray - the omelet I had was really yummy. Better yet, their motto is, "If eating pancakes for lunch is wrong, then we don't want to be right." That's my kind of place. I'll have to take my husband there sometime.
