Great Food in Adams Morgan...

Split plates are definitely the key to eating well in this city on a budget. Perennial favorites:

Bistrot du Coin (Dupont): mussel pot, $8.
El Pollo Rico (Clarendon): half chicken, $8.
Kramer Books (Dupont): Mixed Grill, under $20
L'Oreal Plaza (Adams Morgan): Surf n Turf Grill, under $20

But the great new discovery is half price burger night at the Black Squirrel, a great Adams Morgan bar with 85+ beers. The burgers at this place are beyond compare. The chef sources his own meat and grinds his own unique mixture, which includes, of all things, duck fat. Then the burgers are cooked in a cast iron skillet. We ordered one with brie and caramelized onions, and it was definitely enough food to split. (And, at half price.) Did I mention they have more than 85 beers...?

We will definitely be back, quite possibly every single Thursday night this summer!
