The January Hit List: Le Pigeon, Mama Dut, the Waiting Room, and More

By

Dining at the beginning of a new year always feels confusing: We crave comfort food and old standbys to fight back against the cold weather, but also insist on implementing healthy resolutions. To cover the bases, we’re bringing you both comfort and health on this month’s roster. Line up for a plate of kalua pig and mac salad from the buzzy, new GrindWitTryz brick and mortar; order wine for same day delivery from natural wine bar Dame; or head to the Buckman neighborhood for Mama Dut and Plant Based Papi, the brand new vegan duo located side-by-side, respectively serving Vietnamese and comfort food. Where should you order takeout from this month? We’ve got it in our January Hit List.
