Developments

Washington City Paper reports that restaurateur Victor Albisu will finally give D.C. diners a chance to try the gourmet tacos he’s fed Northern Virginians for years by planting a temporary Taco Bamba inside Penn Quarter restaurant Del Campo. The taco stand will operate during lunch from Wednesday, November 8, through January 2018. [WCP]

Adventures in Drinking

Washingtonian reports that Logan Circle restaurant The Bird will continue its tradition of pouring discounted drinks when weirdness happens at the White House by serving $5 “Moscow Muellers” following any indictment of an administration official. Firing specials will also remain in effect. [Washingtonian]

Spotted

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had dinner October 31 at the original Rasika in Penn Quarter. Tipsters report that the former governor of South Carolina spent about 90 minutes eating Indian food with her husband and two children.

Other Trump administration officials have also found their way to the award-winning restaurant — including repeat visitor Ivanka Trump.
