Five Bites On Friday

Satya Thallam, a member of DC-based band The Method (catch them tonight at the Rock and Roll Hotel!), serves up today's bites. In truly candid spirit, he writes: "The temptation is to appear selectively hipper than I really am, but I'll try to remain honest."

1. Bison burger with bleu cheese at Granville Moore's

2. Crispy spinach (palak chaat) at Rasika

3. Emperador Marinado at Taberna del Alabardero (pictured)

4. Yucca fries at Crisp & Juicy

5. Oatmeal-chocolate chip cookie at Potbelly

Five Bites is a place for Metrocurean readers — and now DC's top chefs — to share all the delicious things they've been eating and drinking. E-mail five of your favorites and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean AT gmail DOT com.

Stay tuned later today for Five Bites from chef Olivier Perret of Ici.
