The Salt Line

The Salt Line
 is located across the street from the Nationals Ballpark, and has been one of our favorite seafood spots in the city since it opened in June 2017. Looking through the blog archives, I noticed I've never written up a review before. How is this possible?! Well, in order to document this restaurant in my catalog, let's start today. Led by chef and partner, Kyle Bailey, this restaurant takes inspiration from the magical blend where fresh and salt water come together, allowing oysters to thrive. The other major partner is Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, so this place is often jammed on game nights. Classic New England dishes influenced by the bounty of the Chesapeake are highlighted on the menu, along with a nice selection of local beer, wine, and frozen drinks. Closest Metro is Navy Yard.

Little Pearl

Little Pearl occupies the former carriage house of the Old Naval Hospital, the Civil War-era property that was transformed six years ago into the Hill Center, an arts, cultural and education facility. From the team responsible for the Michelin-starred Pineapple and Pearls and Rose's Luxury, Little Pearl offers pastries, sandwiches and gelati by day in its coffee shop, and snacks that pair with boutique wine when it transforms to a swanky wine bar at night.  Closest Metro is Eastern Market.

At Home: S'mores Cookies

When the pandemic hit and it was clear that we'd be spending more time at home, we took our refunds from canceled trips and invested it in renovating our backyard space.  We got new patio furniture with a pergola and a gas fire pit.  It's been a nice spot to work from home during the week and to lay out and read on the weekends.  One night, we went outside and made s'mores over the fire pit - you know the classic treat made by roasting marshmallows over a campfire, and then smooshing the melted marshmallow between chocolate and graham crackers, to make a gooey sweet sandwich that you just want "some more" of.  Well, now that the summer heat wave has arrived in DC, it feels too swampy outside and I still had s'mores ingredients leftover that I found would be great to make into a cookie.  Follow this recipe for S'mores Cookies here on What Micky Eats...At Home.
