People get the biggest kicks from bold and daring things, like the rush of jumping out of a plane, or Brittany Rice finally not choosing truth and...oh man, how in the world did she just say "chubby bunny" with six marshmallows!?!? For a restaurant with a pretty damn daring name, check out Bite M.e.
Just opened on F Street in the former Star of India Space (newly revamped to give off a minimalistic/modern vibe), Bite's the latest counter-ordering project from the dude behind Toscana and Cafe LuLu, with the second part of its name (Mediterranean eatery) playfully abbreviated to complete the slur, also a game show that Denis Leary is kind of awesome at. Main dishes include the signature charbroiled filet mignon/ veggie Meat Me, fire-roasted Donor Chicken/ Beef, and deep-fried falafel, which can all be slapped down on a plate with basmati rice and choice of Shirazi/ Tabbouleh salad, or wrapped up in flatbread with hummus and other accouterments, which is French for "don't make me say lettuce/tomato/onion". Housemade dips, from Tzatziki to the weirdly intriguing Avocado Sour are available for extra sauciness, alongside meal supplements like battered cauliflower Cauli-Pops, spiced and crumbly bleu cheese-covered Bite Me Wings, and even melted cheese- and gravy-smothered Bite Me Tots, so maybe don't order those over the phone if you work at a day care.
With a beer and wine license in the works, they'll soon be slinging local-centric suds with an emphasis on Ballast Point and Stone, the latter of which your mom will cast at you when she sees what type of sins Brit's committed re: her marshmallow stash.
