Five Bites on Friday

After working through a backlog of delicious bites with double doses each week (thanks to all of your wonderful submissions), Five Bites slims down to its original single-serving format today.

Marie Fritz, a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland who works at a non-profit housing organization, offers today's selections. Her dinner at Blacksalt was the result of a lost wager in which her friend chose the restaurant. Despite being a seafood joint, the restaurant put together a fantastic vegetable dish.

1. Egg and cheese on a bagel from the Kalorama Deli

2. Vegetable cous cous from Pyramid Restaurant (where "the sweetest woman cooks great and affordable Moroccan food")

3. Gnocchi appetizer and veggie plate with strawberry shortcake for dessert at BlackSalt

4. La Capra pizza at Faccia Luna

5. Chocolate bombe with a Pom Fizz cocktail at Tallula

Tell Metrocurean readers which dishes you're enjoying around town by e-mailing five of your favorite dishes or drinks and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean AT gmail DOT com.

LOVE that Pom Fizz, wish I could figure out how to make it myself, or the Wimbledon (with pop rocks on the rim!)

I was so pleased to find that your Five Bites included one from Pyramid Restaurant! I just moved in around the corner from them and have heard nothing but raves about their Moroccan food. I noticed, however, on your link the address is wrong-- Pyramid Restaurant is at 1840 6th St NW, NOT 1840 Florida Ave. NW I wouldn't want anyone to miss it by going to the wrong address!

Great catch, Margaret. Washingtonian has updated the entry with the correct address!
