We’re addicted to bowls
Local influencers weigh in on their latest obsessions. This month? Bowls— both nutritious and delicious—are all the rage. Here's where they get them.
I love that this is a homegrown chain, and the variety can't be beat. Plus, the close attention to local sourcing and sustainable ingredients is seriously admirable. –Lani Furbank, food and travel writer, @lanifurbank
Here you can get ramen and more. I've tried pretty much every bowl on the menu— they're my favorite helpings of cultural comfort food. –Kate Michael, former Miss D.C.; editor at large, K Street Magazine; @theauthentikate
With warm bowls, I can maintain my energy without becoming too full. At Beefsteak, my favorite bowl is the Kimchi-wa, which has rice, sweet potatoes, carrots, cabbage, edamame and bok choy with kimchi and soy-ginger dressing. It keeps me coming back for more! –Ashley Murphy, dancer, The Washington Ballet, @cocoaballerina
The first location is two blocks from my office—perfect for when I crave Spicy Sabzi. I also try all the seasonal flavors when they come out. –Kate Goodall, CEO, Halcyon, @goodallkate
The Hilltop Bar & Restaurant
This spot offers a Scramble Bowl inspired by its new brunch mistress, Lia Seremetis, a Greek who hails from California. I call it Greekifornia. –Philippa Hughes, chief creative contrarian, The Pink Line Project, @pinklineproject
