  1. I second this suggestion. I live in South Arlington, and I think this is one of the best restaurants in our neighborhood.
  2. My sweetheart treated me to a wonderful take-out Valentine’s Day meal from Tail-Up Goat. Four courses, plus an amuse bouche, dessert, and a couple of bonus sweets. It was all delicious, but the standouts were: the charred octopus salad, with panelle, sorrel, pickled mustard seeds and sofrito, and the squab, with Madeira jus, black truffle, cabbage and sweet potato gratin. The dessert, a chocolate and clementine torte, nasturtium flowers and Aleppo, was lovely and delectable. We also enjoyed two delightful, little “my heart is in your hands” apple pies. There was so much food, we wound up
  3. Tonight we are enjoying poke. The delicious tuna was delivered by Georgetown Butcher. They have fantastic fish there. Last night we enjoyed their halibut, pan-seared, with a butter, caper and lemon sauce, on mashed Yukon gold potatoes.
  4. Just bought some Ice Cream Jubilee “Sweet Cream and Honey” ice cream at Whole Foods. It is quite good, and not as expensive as some of the other premium ice cream brands.
  5. Why mess with perfection? Our most recent pint of Brown Butter Passionfruit Ice Cream had Chocowaffle instead of Chocolate. While this ice cream is still incredibly delicious, this change is not an improvement. I prefer the original contrast of dark chocolate with passionfruit instead of these sweeter waffle bits.
  6. I couldn’t believe how quickly a 14 pound bird cooked! I made my personal-best gravy with the giblets.
  7. Apparently a synonym is gewgaw. Who knew?
  8. I didn't think I could love any dessert more than Happy Gyro's Olive Oil Gelato and Cocoa Crumble until their Basque Cheesecake came along. Now both of these have been topped. Happy Gyro's Brown Butter Ice Cream with Passionfruit and Chocolate takes frozen dessert to a whole new level. I can't think of an ice cream I have enjoyed more. Creamy, delicious and texturally interesting. This one is a winner.
  9. If it is on the menu, treat yourself to Happy Gyro's Basque cheesecake. I am not crazy about traditional cheesecake, and I had never had Basque cheesecake before, but I certainly will order it again. The outside was deliciously caramelized, while the inside was oh so creamy. After admiring the beautiful burnt exterior, I drizzled the berry sauce on top. I thought nothing could top Happy Gyro's gelato, but this is just as good, if not better.
  10. Just when I thought their pizzas couldn't get any better, we ordered this week's pie featuring fresh peaches, olives, salami and red onions. It was fantastic! Ours had a tomato vodka sauce that I really enjoyed. It also was available with a creamy garlic sauce. As always, the crust was perfect. I also loved their new dessert offering--a goat cheese gelato with blackberry and shortbread. Heavenly.
  11. Agreed. Ina's are always wonderful, but some of Martha's are "meh."
  12. I’m raising a glass of champagne to (and with) the sweetest man I’ve ever known. Happy birthday, DonRocks!
  13. I recently re-watched this film, and shortly after, "Suspicion." The former held up much better for a second viewing than the latter. I loved "Rebecca" the second time around, but Suspicion seemed dull, and the contrived ending annoyed me. I had no idea Mrs. Danvers was the inspiration for Cloris Leachman's character in "Young Frankenstein." Having recently watched the 1931 version of "Frankenstein," and then "Rebecca," it was great fun viewing this 1974 comedy again, which I hadn't seen since I was still in elementary school.
  14. Scallops with fennel grenobloise, and dark-chocolate-dipped strawberries and bananas and a black plum for dessert.
