Caramel Popcorn Salty Ice Cream Sundae...Found at "The W" in Washington, D.C. One of the best desserts I have ever tasted and a MUST if you are visiting D.C....YUM!!!
The next morning we got up and decided to set out for breakfast. Wanting something different, we sort of just searched for something fairly near to where we were staying and came up with "Founding Farmers". This restaurant touts its fresh and organic ingredients. The atmosphere is "farmish" also, with wood everywhere, big clouds made from cotton boles hanging from the ceiling and displays of huge jars filled with fresh veggies. I must say...the food was WONDERFUL! And no wonder...the guy who sat next to us while we dined informed us that it was in the "Top Restaurants Recommended by the Food Network"!
We ended up in Georgetown around lunchtime and popped in to a little restaurant to eat there. But before we did that, a cute market caught my eye and I HAD to wander in to take a look.
And, of course, whenever one gets ready to stop for a little snack during the day...there are CUPCAKE shops to be found EVERYWHERE...
For dinner, we visited a cute little restaurant that is close to where Caitlin lives; "Ted's Bulletin". This is an Old Timey restaurant that has a neat little bar in the front and the 50's style booths in the back. There was a big screen T.V. on one wall playing "The Wizard of Oz" while we were there. There are several really neat things about this establishment; they are known for their homemade pop-tarts and delicious shakes!
This is the bar in the front room of "Ted's Bulletin"
Caitlin got the "Oreo Cookie Shake" that has little pieces of crushed up cookies in it and Robby had the "Peppermint Shake" that had peppermint pieces in it. What did I have??? Why I just had a little taste of both of theirs! They were Both YUMMY!
We were so stuffed when we left "Ted's Bulletin" that we had to take our homemade pop-tarts to go! But WOW! They were delicious and so soft; nothing like the Pop-Tarts that you buy in the store.
I must say that D.C. DOES have some neat and interesting places to dine! And I was certainly at an advantage since Caitlin has been living here all semester and ventured out and found and tried them in advance. There were plenty other interesting things that we did on our D.C. visit this time around...Watch for my next posting where you will get to see LOTS of beautiful photographs from around the city!
