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

Blue Water Grille - Some coworkers took me here last week and I totally forgot to mention it here. It was tasty but nothing spectacular. Our waitress was great, though.

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.

Before BrickFair a few weeks ago, my friends and I had lunch at nearby Bob O's. It was standard pub fare, but they served omelets all day so I was all over that. I could eat cheesy eggs all day long.

Verdict: I would eat here again. I don't know that I'd go out of my way to eat here - it was good but not unique - but it's certainly a good place to stop by when you're attending something at the Dulles Expo Center.

Roy Rogers is a decent fast food restaurant. Though we make jokes about Trigger Burgers, both the burger and the fried chicken were fine. I don't think I'd go out of my way to eat at a Roy Rogers, but I won't actively avoid it anymore either.

Jersey Mike's was a sub shop I'd never given much thought to until I saw some folks debating the relative merits of various sub places, including Subway, Firehouse, and Quizno's. There's one fairly close to my house so I decided to give it a try. It was pretty blah. I mean, it wasn't a bad sandwich, but certainly nothing I'd go out of my way to eat.

These two places, while they are major chains, are both in my local area and new to me, so they count. I didn't eat them on the same day, or even in the same month. I simply forgot to post about them.
