Roaming Rooster, Washington, DC

Do you remember the much-publicized challenge by Popeye’s to the Chick-fil-A fried chicken sandwich dominance? Me neither. I was reminded of it, however, by the arrival of a Roaming Rooster branch in Tenleytown, not far from our home. Roaming Rooster was a major beneficiary of the Popeye’s ad campaign. How? Just when lots of people were focused on fried chicken sandwiches, a local musician/influencer, Bri … Continue reading Roaming Rooster, Washington, DC

New Orleans by Myra is Back! In Lusby, Maryland

Oh, I got excited! Nancy and I went down to Lusby, Maryland, for the weekend and I saw it! The New Orleans by Myra’s food truck, the source of the best Shrimp Po-Boy and the best Oyster Po-Boy in the area. They’d been away for months, and I’d been left bereft. No more! Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer … well, … Continue reading New Orleans by Myra is Back! In Lusby, Maryland

The Best Coffee in Town, Key West, Florida

It can be a real challenge to find the best coffee in Key West. It’s a big town for coffee, especially Cuban style cafe con leche, and there seem to be a million choices. You can wander from place to place, drinking coffee, taking notes, and getting progressively more wired. Or you can cut the Gordian Knot and google “best coffee in town.” That miraculously … Continue reading The Best Coffee in Town, Key West, Florida

The Cafe at Louie’s Backyard, Key West, Florida

Nancy and I stayed over in Key West for a day after Liza, Mike, and the kids left so we could spend some time with Mike’s parents, Sue and David Boyd. Nancy and I did the same thing last year, and we had lunch at Louie’s Backyard with them before our afternoon flight home. You can read details here. That lunch was on the back … Continue reading The Cafe at Louie’s Backyard, Key West, Florida

Cuban Coffee Queen, Key West, Florida

Back to my Key West Cuban sandwich survey. Sue and David Boyd suggested Cuban Coffee Queen, so off we all went. Cuban Coffee Queen is set in the center of a city block. Not the middle of a block as in halfway down a street, but the very center of the block, as if it had wandered in among the other buildings and become lost. … Continue reading Cuban Coffee Queen, Key West, Florida

Floridita Food Truck, Key West, Florida

During our delightful stay at Havana Cabana, Nancy and I hit the Floridita Food Truck several times. Well, I did. Actually, the food truck is permanently parked, or rather set up, on the grounds of Havana Cabana. It is, in effect, the hotel pool grill, but all customers are welcome, and all should stop by. The truck is set under a big tiki, with plenty … Continue reading Floridita Food Truck, Key West, Florida

First Flight Restaurant and Brewery, Key West, Florida

Nancy and I met Michael, Liza, Ella, and Lily at Key West’s wonderful Butterfly Museum. (Sue and David Boyd had been there the week before with the California Boyds, Peter, Christine, Devon, and Ryan, so took a pass.) It’s a magical place, and you should go there with or without children. Afterwards, we went our various ways and regrouped at the First Flight Restaurant and … Continue reading First Flight Restaurant and Brewery, Key West, Florida

Sandy’s Cafe at M and M Laundromat, Key West, Florida

When Nancy and I are in Key West, we usually end up eating at our co-grandparents’ along with Mike, Liza, and Ella, and Lily. David and Sue Boyd are lovely people and sensational hosts. Wonderful as they are, duty calls me relentlessly. I needed to do research for the Blog. Regular readers will guess that the research included Cuban sandwiches. I’d had a good Cuban … Continue reading Sandy’s Cafe at M and M Laundromat, Key West, Florida

Little Sesame Pop-Up at Sugar Fox, Washington, DC

We have another good place to eat! Nancy and I finally had a chance to try the Little Sesame pop-up at Sugar Fox, the sweet shop associated with the Red Fox, next to Buck’s and across the street from Rosemary Bistro and I’m Eddie Cano. That’s quite a block. Little Sesame’s pop-up is very popular. I tried ordering at 6:00 or 6:30 on a Wednesday … Continue reading Little Sesame Pop-Up at Sugar Fox, Washington, DC
