A couple of recent posts that I invite you to check out.

My interview with Top Judges Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons is here: http://beenthereeate...d-gail-simmons/

If you are heading to NYC, here are two fine options for Italian food- Rosemary's in the West Village and Rubirosa in Nolita. Rubirosa has seriously good pizza!

Recent dining in DC outings have included two restaurants that share a similar down-home vibe along with great food.

No ifs, ands, or butts...Izakaya Seki knocks me off my feet: http://beenthereeate...1/izakaya-seki/

and

Seriously good Vegetarian at Thai Xing: http://beenthereeate.../11/thai-x-ing/

My newest review is titled "Suna...not later" about the intriguing new Suna on Capitol Hill. I've included a quote from a conversation on this board, since it gave another perspective on the one dish that I didn't really like.

Thank you, Lori! Please keep posting - I love reading your reviews. I'm a fan of Tom, but your pictures alone show that Equinox - at least on that night - easily deserves more than 1.5 stars.

 

[Bloggers, in general, please post up to twice a month about your work! Lori has been doing this for awhile now, and it keeps reminding me to read her fine blog.]

My latest post is about the new Range in Mazza Gallery. If you are familiar with my blog, it won't surprise you that I like it.  But Chef Voltaggio isn't the only thing Range has going for it.

Some new posts on Been There, Eaten That

 

Last month's dining adventures included Alinea- the best meal of my life.  I share my experience here:

http://beenthereeate...2013/06/alinea/

 

Also, I am guessing there aren't too many kosher participants on this site, but here's a kosher spot in Philly that merits a visit:

http://beenthereeate...itron-and-rose/

 

and finally, my most recent post is about Daikaya in DC.

As evidenced by the long list of restaurant openings on this board, it's hard to keep up.  My most recent blog posts focus on the 14th Street additions of Le Diplomate, Ghibellina, and Etto. 

 

Le Diplomate

Ghibellina and Etto

http://beenthereeate...w-dc-hot-spots/

 

plus...a welcome renovation to Persimmon in Bethesda.

It's been a busy summer.  Thought I would share some of my recent posts:

 

My first post about Masala Art was three years ago and focused on some very incompetent service.  On a recent visit, I was better able to focus on the food:

http://beenthereeate...9/masala-art-2/

 

I also made a return visit to Trummer's on Main, where despite some literal bumps in the road we enjoyed some very good dishes:

http://beenthereeate...mers-on-main-2/

 

I loved the robust flavors of the food at 14 Global in Bethany Beach.  I'm hearing great things from some readers who made visits after reading my review:

http://beenthereeate...3/08/14-global/

 

I also wrote about restaurants in Atlanta and New York which can be found on my blog under reviews by locale, around the US.

Two new restaurants...two new posts. (and the key word here seems to be TWO).

 

I made two visits to Doi Moi within a few days of each other, and had two sightings of Supreme Court Justices.

 

http://beenthereeate...013/11/doi-moi/

 

I fell hard for Rose's Luxury, and am anxious for a second visit.

Lori’s review of 8407 Kitchen Bar. Yes, she gives us a shout-out here, but Lori has been a treasured member of this community for a long time now, and I like her reviews very much - there’s a certain “coming of age” quality to them that I find genuine and real.

thanks, Don for your kind words and your support, which I value.  but I'm pushing 60.  How old to I have to be before I'm "of age?"

On August 1 Been There, Eaten That turned four years old.  I still feel like the little engine that could, but I appreciate all the support from Don and the members here.  Please give me a follow at beenthereeatenthat.net and @foodobsessed6 on Twitter.

 

Thanks!
