Takoma Park Restaurant Scene Praised by WaPo’s Tom Sietsema

Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema heaped praise on Takoma Park’s restaurant scene in his November 4 Ask Tom live chat.

When asked by a soon-to-be Takoma Park transplant from Washington, D.C.’s H Street neighborhood for restaurant recommendations, Tom responded with several of his favorites:

“Food-loving friends who live in Takoma Park give shout outs to Takoma Beverage Company, which locals refer to as TakomaBev; (Trattoria da Lina’s) Carpe Diem Pizzeria for pizza and calzones; Cielo Rojo for good Mexican (a view I share, having dispatched at the mom-and-pop tacos bulked up with shredded pork flavored with orange juice and grilled rockfish striped in two sauces); and the Girl & The Vine for good takeout sandwiches that I, too, gobbled up while sitting at the bar in pre-pandemic times. If it’s offered, spring for the juicy chicken schnitzel BLT served on an onion bun.”
