  1. At whatever number Nobu in Atlantis Bahamas, it was the food that taste awful.
  2. The Michelin Guide

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/food/michelins-starry-view-of-dc-is-a-head-scratcher/2017/10/17/c271aad2-b352-11e7-9e58-e6288544af98_story.html?utm_term=.f7e6a9aba54b Sietsema doesn’t think Michelin can cover DC but he thinks he can rate all the cities in the u.s. based on on one visit. I have no respect for Sietsema’s opinion at all. I know he has no clue about Asian cuisines. To say Minibar is the best avant-garde kitchen is to reveal his ignorance.
  3. If Marie Antoinette was alive and lives in DC, she would've said "let them eat steak!"

  5. I went there. Had Chinese Bacon and Cauliflower with Black Beans from Tiger Fork. The mustard greens under the "bacon" were really salty. And I've never had cauliflower with black beans before. Nothing was bad but nothing was all that good. Ashak from Lapis. I forgot veggies were inside ( very bitter with no other balancing flavor). I threw this dish away after one bite. Dried Fried Noodles from Queen Ammanisa. I didn't realize the noodles would be fairly spicy. I was not amazed with the texture of the noodles - they were under tin foil so the steaming probably affected the texture. Vietnamese Salad from Himatsu. They it was a little spicy, but it was definitely Thai spicy based on the Bangkok Golden scale. Tasty cabbage salad but it wrecked my stomach later.
  6. Went here for lunch because my senior partner who pays for lunch wanted Korean. I figure Han Gang would still be good, if not the best in Annandale. I briefly thought about taking him to Tok So Jip but I decided he's not really looking for that kind of authenticity. We only order 2 dishes, which was more than enough for lunch. The seafood pancake was superb - wonderful texture (a little crispy outside, not at all dense inside) and seasoning, with a variety of seafood (mostly squid ). The galbi (short rib) was fatty in a good way - my boss was impressed with its tenderness. It's more expensive than other joints, but I wasn't paying.
  7. I know Lotus Garden has 2 websites and both of them reflect the old Lotus Garden menu (with hand pulled noodles). I know that Lotus Garden and East Chateau had the same owner. Did Lotus Garden move to the east chateau space?
  8. "'Top Chef' Alum Jennifer Carroll Quits Mike Isabella's Restaurant Empire" by Warren Rojas on dc.eater.com didn't think it was all that good with her there. Not sure if this dog will still hunt.
  9. After Scotland failed to qualify, their Manager said: I think the U.S. team is genetically challenged too. They must have the smallest hearts.
  10. In a group where 2/3 of the teams have an opportunity to advance. How is it that only 1/3 of the teams in European groups has an opportunity to advance and 1/2 of the teams in Conmebol has an opportunity to advance? I'm pretty sure Concacaf teams aren't stronger than Conmebol teams.
  11. Some fine print from the website for anyone interested in going. $595 per person all inclusive of beverages, gratuity and tax. Due to the unique nature of this benefit and that all proceeds go to great causes, there will be no refunds.
  12. https://www.washingtonian.com/2017/10/10/jose-andres-patrick-oconnell-and-aaron-silverman-will-cook-a-michelin-all-star-dinner-at-pineapple-and-pearls/ I'm thinking about making reservation tomorrow...

    Good calls...I'd throw in The Dabney for top spot contention.
  14. La Favola

    La Favola opened recently in the old Ovvio space. The menu has pizza and mostly uninteresting Italian dishes. It's not red sauce Italian...I don't know what it is.
  15. Lotus Garden had been closed for renovation since April. I just noticed that their website said they've reopened.
