  1. Beautiful photos indeed. it seems as if butter based sauces are having their moment (not a huge fan).
  2. In the beginning they might not have even offered tasting menus. I remember at some point they added one that was available Thursday thru Saturday (if I remember correctly). but it was very much in the same mold as Palena Cafe (the first incarnation). i loved going there and grabbing a few plates for dinner. Delicious food at a very good perceived value. While Johnny and Kwame were both young, only one was offering up a good perceived value...hence only one is still cooking.
  3. Conveyor belt pizza...the worst of the worst. ironically, conveyor belt ovens, due to the multitude of parts, are typically the most expensive types of ovens when compared to deck and wood fired ovens.
  4. Thank you. That means a lot. One of the best pizzas I ever had in my life was also a marinara pizza, but from Florence, Italy.
  5. The plating of this food is pretty terrible across the board. It makes Cedric's food (which is typicallly very delicious) look rather unappealing.
  6. I'm not a mash-up kinda guy. I bet if you mentioned high-chairs to the owner they would remedy the situation.
  7. Were there any dishes that were more Mexican? Seems an odd choice to put what amounts to eggs benedict at a Mexican restaurant (Mexican culture has a rich breakfast/brunch tradition).
  8. Perhaps the photo is misleading, but this looks like quite a small portion, and a bizarre ratio of broth to fish.
  9. This looks so far removed from what I expect when I order pizza anywhere, that it's just shocking to me that it was just named the #1 restaurant in Washington, DC by Tom. While I applaud the team there for wanting to do something a bit different from Neapolitan pizza, the end product still needs to be good. Different for different's sake doesn't do it for me.

  11. His twice a year dining guides are silly. He should spend the time reviewing restaurants that would typically not receive the press because they are/were off his radar or off the beaten path. And perhaps, he should even consider stepping aside as food critic...this isn't the Supreme Court. It shouldn't be a lifetime appointment. Some fresh blood with some fresh eyes/palette would do the Post wonders.
