  1. If anyone is looking for a great photographer whether it be for a family shoot or wedding, this guy is awesome. Being in the business as long as I have been recommending purveyors has never been a top priority simply because I deal with so many of them on a day to day situation. Djenno was awesome to deal with and has always been highly recommended not because he is over the top but because of his approach. Photographers from what I now know have to read so many different cards before getting the right shot. Lighting, scene, the individuals they are shooting and so on. When it came time to take some pictures of my boys for the family, we had never used a professional before always opting for the iPhone shot. My wife having worked with Djenno before while planning events (which is what she does in her spare time) said she wanted him to do the pictures and she couldn't have been more right. He was great to work with, had a plan of places to take the pictures from that would be a good setting not just for me and my wife but my two little ones. He couldn't have been any nicer to work with when it came to getting a 3 year old and 10 year old to hold positions, get into certain positions. I guess having two little girls as he does helps to be able to communicate to children. The pictures were fantastic and like I said I would recommend him for any style of photo shoot.

  2. The chef is Howsoon Cham (originally from the Gambia, from what I recall). He previously headed the short-lived Newtown Grill on U Street, and before that a restaurant (can't remember the name) in Dupont that had been BEDUCI (currently Scion), and before that Red Ginger in Georgetwon. I think there was a thread about Red Ginger on here where Charlie Adler touted his skills. I've never eaten at any of his restaurants, so I can't speak to that, but I hope that this does better than the preceeding three.
  3. Yesterday I picked up a few warm pretzels at the newly opened Pretzel Bakery on 15th Street, SE (340 15th Street; cross street: D). I got three for $5. They are otherwise $2 a piece, and 12 for $15, if you want to buy in bulk. The pretzels were quite good, though a little softer and not quite as elongated as my memories of Philadelphia pretzels go. I didn't buy any mustards, since I figured I had those at home. It's a nice little space, just a walk-up stand. It's the next block down from Crepes on the Corner. You can spot the bakery by the red awning outside. The woman working behind the counter was pleasant and friendly. Today I saw this story about the business from the Post and discovered that yesterday was National Pretzel Day! The article has more details about the bakery and its owner. This is their website: http://thepretzelbakery.com/
  4. Mi Vecindad, in the old Pacific Cafe space, opened the other night -- just went by with the dog and noticed lunch service today. According to The Hill is Home's "First Bite"* from opening night, it's the menu from La Plaza up at the top of Penn (same owner) with a Cuban twist. It's a block away so I'll have to try it once I can manage to walk more than half a block without melting into a puddle of goo, which is not a pleasant state in which to consume food. *Guess the Post doesn't have this trademarked.
  5. A friend last night was raving about this place and I couldn't find a thread for it here. It's a weekday-only, lunch-only place. Inconvenient, but maybe worth a trip one workday. DCist covered it last year, couldn't find coverage in wp, etc. Mangialardo & Sons, Inc. 1317 Pennsylvania Ave., SE 202-543-6212 Metro: Potomac Avenue
