Shaw has surely stepped up its restaurant game lately with the opening of many new hot spots in the past two years.

The view from the restaurant is simply breathtaking, and Malliouhana has always been in my opinion, one of the prime real estate restaurant locales on the island. As I sat perched high,…

Let’s be honest… this brunching lifestyle can get expensive! A brunch entrée alone can cost almost $19 at many DC restaurants; and three course or bottomless DC brunches usually run between $29 to $39. So I…
