Welcome to thrifty/epicure. We’re here to help you find some food, for cheap, while avoiding the McDonald’s route. Frankly, we’re here to help you avoid a lot of things: buying cheap food isn’t the only way to go wrong in this town. Plenty of “meh” up and down the price spectrum, from Lauriol Plaza to Raku (with PLENTY of stops along the way). Also, no cat food. Though we hear Fancy Feast is nice.
If you’re looking for somebody to review the newest, fanciest, hippest places in town, don’t hold your breath. Alternatively, you could send checks. Its not that we don’t want to eat at those places – and we’ll probably try to get in at Restaurant Week – but its not the mission, and frankly, we don’t have the money.
We’re here to find the places you might have missed, the diners, dives and hopefully the diamonds in the rough. We’re here to give you some perspective, to look at food in District in a way you might not have before. Finally, we’re here to bring a little scrutiny to the conventional wisdom on cheap eats around this town. Everyone has their suggestions, but can the big shots big trusted to bring good food to the little guy?
Food, drink, special events. We’ll bring it to you.
