  1. Little Serow is offering Khao Soi dinner kit to go for two next week. Some reheating will be required and instructions are included. https://serowtogo.square.site/khao-soi For $110, the package comes with: Nam Prik Num & Crispy Pork Skin Chayote & Peanut Salad Jackfruit & Pork Herbal Pork Sausage Chicken Khao Soi Sweet Rice Slice Bite We ordered a kit for Friday and can't wait to try it out.
  2. Continuing our love affair with Detroit-style pizza, @MichaelBDCtried Motown Square Pizza (delivery by DoorDash). The chef is from Detroit with roots in Ethiopia, so we were intrigued by and planned to order the special tibs pizza. However, in an incredible brain fart I ordered the Motor City pizza instead. No matter, because it allowed us to do a more apples to apples comparison with our favorite, Della Barba. The Motor City (available only on Fridays and Saturdays) comes with sausage, ricotta, hot honey, mozzarella, and parsley in addition to the standard crushed tomatoes and Wisconsin
  3. I read through the entirety of this thread the other day and it's quite interesting to see how Maketto has changed since it's opening and settled into its current iteration as it is one of our favorite places in the city right now. The Maketto of the first few posts is almost unrecognizable to the Maketto today, especially during COVID times. Reading about people packed together trying to order from the bar made do a double take. The puppy's groomer is a few blocks away so @MichaelBDCand I have made it a routine to drop the pup off and head to Maketto for a cup of coffee or tea and lunch
  4. Ten months later, we finally got that fried chicken dinner. Pickup is even more seamless than before. You go in one door, the host walks you to your order on the bar, hands it to you, and you exit through another door. The food stayed warm and the chicken remained crisp after our 15 minute walk back to the apartment. The order consisted of a whole chicken broken into parts, mashed potatoes & gravy, biscuits & bacon jam, and coleslaw. Everything was fantastic, especially the chicken, and we still have half of the meal left over for another meal. A truly excellent meal. The cost is
  5. Try Haikan. Website says they are continuing outdoor seating, but not sure if it's heated or not.
  6. After a series of pepperoni Detroit pizza, we branched out and ordered the Detroit Hottie, a special with Habaneros, Jalapenos, & Calabrian Chili Oil. We added pepperoni as well. Unfortunately, it was way too spicy for me, but we still managed to enjoy it enough to finish off the pie in multiple rounds. Additionally, Washingtonian reports that Della Barba will go from a takeout/delivery kitchen in Ivy City to a cafe on Capitol Hill around Lincoln Park. The address is 1382 E. Capitol St. NE, currently an Al's Pizza. There is promise of housemade bacon, baguettes, and pastries. Looking
  7. Christmas Eve dinner from Convivial, our second Convivial to go dinner during the time of COVID and this dinner was phenomenal. Chestnut & Foie Gras soup and the Duck & Armagnac Country Pate to start and both were very very good. The soup was the best soup I have had in a while and the pate came with a generously large and tasty baguette. It didn't seem like a generous portion but after our appetizers, @MichaelBDC and I were so full we ended up splitting the cassoulet. There was a lot of pork and sausage to go with the perfectly al dente beans. After all that food, I managed a bi
  8. So jealous! We had wanted to do Kinship for our Christmas Eve Dinner too, but decided too late and they were sold out, so we went with Convivial instead. Walked by Kinship on our way to and from Convivial and saw that they were doing brisk to-go service. I am going to pretend we passed each other on 7th St.
  9. This is so sad. I had some of the best times at Big Hunt and two of my favorite bar stories took place here. The first is when I got to talking to some friends of the owner and they covered my tab and then some. The second was when I finally got to use this line on some douche bro, "You know what they say about people who wear sunglasses inside? You're either blind or an asshole."
  10. @Bart, we had to cancel our annual Christmas trip to San Diego this year because of COVID. I will note that there is a stay at home order in San Diego right now and restaurants are only open for delivery and takeout. That being said, I would advise against a nice dinner in Little Italy. We stayed in Little Italy the last few times we've been in San Diego and I think the places are not as good as they once were with the exception of Crack Shack, but that is very casual. If you really had to do NYE dinner at (or from) a place in Little Italy, look to Juniper & Ivy, Herb& Wood, and K
  11. This radical liberal forgot all about the DCist story until I came here to write up a recent Rose's At Home dinner we ordered. It's amusing to me because I am usually one of the first in line to write off businesses with problematic owners and chefs. Not sure the lack of impact that DCist story had on me speaks more about me or Aaron Silverman. Back to the food, we had Rose's At Home delivered to our place last week. The current menu, which ends this week, consisted of a night called TOMATOES ONLY and another night PICNIC PACK. A third night option would have been ROSE'S CLASSICS (spicy j
  12. We did the chef's choice takeout at Nina May a few weeks ago and we LOVED it. Everything survived the 20 minute walk home and another hour or so of sitting on the counter because we weren't hungry yet. When I got there, around 6:15pm on a Friday, the patio was pretty full and there were three other to-go orders getting taken out. Hope they continue the good things and can stick it out through these COVID times.
  13. Mélange recently opened in the City Vista, taking over the spot left vacant when the excellent Ray's Hell Burger closed. We (and the neighborhood) have truly missed Ray's, but after an initial lunch on Friday, I think Mélange is a worthy replacement (though we will miss Ray's forever). @MichaelBDC ordered The Classic ($13). The description, burger with American cheese, iceberg lettuce tomato, pickled red onions, and brown butter aioli does not do the burger justice. In the words of @MichaelBDC "the chef makes one hell of a burger." I had one bite and agree it was truly delicious. An Eate
  14. Rasa took over the empty space left behind by Taylor Gourmet in the City Vista. While we miss Taylor, Rasa is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. @MichaelBDC have picked up lunch here twice since it has opened and enjoyed our meals both times. The Home Cooking with turmeric ginger shrimp over rice noodles has been my favorite so far even though I was a little hesitant to order shrimp at a fast casual place. I also liked the Tikka Chance on Me although I found the chicken to be a little dry. Michael ordered the Open Sesame his first go round and loved the lamb meatballs although he commente
