East Coast Food Swing- Philly Cheesesteaks + DC Seafood and Brunch

Recently I did a little East Coast swing by spending time in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia PA. Seafood and Philly Cheesesteaks is mostly what were on.  This trip was about exploration of culture, architecture, landmarks, and food. Lots of food. In DC upon arrival the first restaurant we went to was Lapis for brunch. Lapis is a Michelin Bib Gourmand rated restaurant specializing in Afghan cuisine that boasts one of the best brunches in DC.  What captured my attention when doing research on various brunch spots were the rosewater and cardamom pancakes with pistachios and warm rosewater syrup served here . This sounded pretty intriguing.   Very unique to my palate and very delicious. It was even garnished with edible rose petals. So glad I tried this! Here are some of the other establishments where we dined and what we thought about them.  Old Ebbitt Grill - Salmon Salad (B+) and Trout Parmesan (B-). The salad was good and hearty. The trout was better than decent, but the first bite
