From a decadent apple pie, to a meatless Monday favorite, here are the best things the Capitol File staffers ate last month.
We celebrated the holidays as a team this year at Nopa in Penn Quarter, and aside from the company, the best thing about the lunch was this decadent buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with the best hand cut French fries. I’m still dreaming about it!”—Amy Moeller, editor
“My favorite meal this month included the drunken noodles and fresh rolls I ordered from I Thai for our team’s Meatless Monday.”—Meredith Merrill, associate publisher
“The fried apple pie at Nopa. With cinnamon glaze, candied apples, and cinnamon ice cream it’s the most delicious apple pie I’ve had in years. It was sweet, with the perfect crunch and flakiness of an apple pie.”—Christina Cuevas, account executive
“The chicken and waffles from Kapnos hit the spot during a brunch with friends.”—Laura Mullen, director of events and marketing
“The best thing I ate this month was the Heirloom Rye Gnocchi from Bourbon Steak—it was the perfect new twist on a favorite classic dish.”—Erin Gleason, business development coordinator
“The best thing I ate this month was the spaghetti with Sunday Sauce 27, pork shoulder, house-made Italian sausage, ground beef braised in a red wine tomato sauce at The Forum Restaurant in The Greenbrier. The sauce, which is their version of Bolognese, is unforgettable.”—Suzy Jacobs, publisher
