More on Morou and New Rumberos

Erin Killian at the Washington Business Journal brings us more information on chef Morou's new restaurant, Farrah Olivia. The spot is named for his 2-year-old daughter but will also get help from Mom, according to the story:

Now that he's found the space, Ouattara is nailing down details, including his menu and dishes. He says his mother will be a key taste tester because she regularly eats in both Africa and the United States.

Meanwhile, over on the GOG Blog, Erin Hartigan reports on her first impressions of the new Rumberos in Columbia Heights:

The restaurant has a spacious bar, and the drinks were delicious. We delighted in watching our bartender mix together vibrant green leaves of mint for our freshly muddled caipirinhas and mojitos. But the food, well, left us wanting more drinks.
