  1. Clementine is in a unique area of Baltimore that is unpopulated by the usual hip restaurants. This place has the feel of a general store, and they cure their own bacon and make other charcuterie. It's a great spot to bring kids; there's a cute play area off in the corner. Great assortment of sodas from rosemary lemon fizz, lime basil elixir, Cheerwine, and other drinks. We went for breakfast. The waffles are fantastic - almost fried and funnel cake like with strawberries and whipped cream. There's an Elvis version with bacon, bananas and nutella as well, which I did not get to try. We ordered catfish with grits, corned beef hash, and their regular scramble. Be sure to ask for their housemade hot sauces that come in both green and red. Catfish was cooked to the right texture so that it didn't end up tough with great grits. The corned beef hash is unlike any other hash - the meat was high quality and came in chunks, lovely chunks of squash and potato. And I'm not sure what they put in their scramble of eggs, potatoes, red cabbage, onion and duroc bacon, but yum. Definitely want to return to try their version of bi bim bap and charcuterie. This has definitely unseated Miss Shirley's as my favorite brunch spot in Baltimore.
  2. If you have never been here, it is worth the trip. Cozy, dimmed lights, limited seating, very French country ambiance...and if you don't know WHERE it is, you'll miss it. This was my impression. I've been to Adams Morgan a thousand times and have passed right by this little gem of a restaurant. I loved how it all comes together. But specifically, a dish to note: Duck Breast served with Mushroom Risotto and a cherry/port wine sauce . Now, I am a big fan of duck.... duck pate, duck confit, you name it. And so many times when I order it out in restaurants, its either too dry or too crispy. I'm not a crispy duck fan. This Duck Breast was very tender, juicy and cooked "just right" - medium to medium rare . The sauce really added to the taste of the dish - sweetening the experience, literally.. It was also half price bottle of wine night - so that always makes everything right. Go for the Duck!
  3. Jonathan Gold's review makes me want to hop a plane and go *right* *now* to Dudley Market: "In Venice Beach, the Place to Eat is Dudley Market, and the Dish to Try is Uni-Topped Black Risotto" by Jonathan Gold on latimes.com
  4. Alobar draws from the hipster playbook - low-key come-as-you-are vibe, all sorts of reclaimed stuff, mismatched furniture, old timey lighting, open kitchen, chefy riffs on comfort food. Fortunately they do it well. Baked Huevos Rancheros was a bowl of chorizo, eggs, blacks and rice, with a side of tortillas and avocado slices. A couple splashes of hot sauce was all it needed. Graceland Toast (brioche, peanut butter, and caramelized bananas) and Wild Mushroom Toast (Sunny Side Egg, Smoked Ricotta, red wine onions) kept the vegetarians more than happy. Slices of freshly baked raisin bread were enjoyed while deciding on entrees. The only disappointing item was the weak Bloody Mary. Alobar is conveniently located two blocks from MoMA PS 1, so if you find yourself in this part of Queens, I would recommend, especially for brunch.
  5. A hearty congratulations to the newest record holder for worst meal in DC. I didn't think anyone could top the level of awful I had previously found in the area, but huzzah to you guys - you did it! Arriving late morning to see some friends performing in their celtic band, I discovered the full menu was not available. A brunch buffet, you say? Well....all right, but my level of skepticism was high. Justifiably, it turns out. Potatoes half cooked and beyond greasy full on into oily. Bacon about the same level of doneness and viscosity. And the eggs - green. Not a fun Irish St. Patick's Day green but an "Oh dear heaven above what did you do to those eggs" green. And tough. Green and tough. Several of us wisely (we thought) eschewed the buffet and chose to wait for the full "Irish Pub" menu to open up at noon. While it may not actually have anything as pedantic as Corned Beef and Cabbage, it does feature such charming fare as "Banger Rolls" and "Boxty Rueben Bites." One member of our party ordered some sort of chicken dish that was served raw in the middle. Yes, that's right. The chicken was medium rare. Make my pain work for you. Avoid like the plague.
  6. I drove by today, and there was a sign up for Sheba, an Ethiopian restaurant, saying it would be opening in November, 2011. I can't imagine this space will be much more than a few burners simmering pots of long-cooked stews; the good news is that might be all you need. Wild Chicken isn't much of a landmark (it's an impossibly obscure restaurant in its own right), but they're next door to each other.
  7. Hi, I'm Michael, a DR.com supporter and friend and owner of Quench, in Rockville MD. In April 2013 we were named favorite new restaurant by the Restaurant Association of MD, and now we're more actively branching out into catering and events. We've hosted class reunions, weddings a bat mitzvah and numerous parties and corporate events ranging from 20 - 120 people at our restaurant. We also work off-site, providing catering services for The Glenstone Museum, Mercedes Benz, Medimmune and countless others. Again, size of event is not an issue, as we've done everything from a 10 person private dinner to 900 people at Euro Motorcars Bethesda. We'd love to work with the Don Rockwell community, so email Michael@quenchnation.com if interested, and if you mention that you found us here, we'll give you 10% off your group or catering event. Thanks!
  8. A friend from Atlanta is hosting an event in DC in November, and here is her plea: "Can you make 2-3 recommendations of places to hold an event with 100 people...50 people in each class then the two classes have a reception together at the end. The most central location is best or a really popular one to draw a crowd. A steakhouse or brewery would work." Any thoughts? I am not familiar at all with private room availability and capacity. Thanks!
  9. Had dinner at Farmicia this past weekend and had an enjoyable meal. Highlights for me were the Tuscan Grain Salad (organic spelt, chopped garden vegetables, lemon-basil vinaigrette, arugula) and the Crispy Fried Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail (atop a trio of fries, bloody mary dipping sauce). My entree of Boneless Pork Chop Dijon (grilled, honey glazed turnips, broccoli, cider-sage sauce) was good, but the meat was slightly overcooked and therefore a bit dry, but the sauce helped. It did have a nice bit of char from the grill that went well with the sweetness of the turnips.
  10. I saw this hilarious truck parked in front of Walter Johnson high school today (Rockledge Drive in Bethesda): This particular one is owned by the same company that owns Party Warehouse, etc. They offer 35 flavors of shaved ice, and will drive right up to your party to complement your Moon Bounce. Snowie is a Utah company that will sell you a brand new bus for $78,900, with numerous variations.
  11. The Birchrunville Cafe is in the middle of nowhere somewhere in Chester county and, for better or worse, has 28 from Zagat for food. The only light in the dining room at dinner is from candlelight. Has anyone been?
