  1. After reading the above post by @Mark Dedrick, we ordered Grazie Grazie for lunch today via DoorDash. That 8+1 indeed hits our love for an Italian Hoagie that hasn't been replaced since losing Taylor Gourmet. We also got a Lil C's salad that hit the spot because we really wanted a nice crisp salad, but it wasn't anything better than what we could have made at home.
  2. Yes. I think you also have to activate your DashPass membership which gives you reduced service fees and free delivery, but I'm not positive about this. Like your travel credit, you Door Dash credit gets reimbursed. Also, it's $60 for 2020 and $60 for 2021.
  3. We've been trying to do takeout or delivery once a week each for lunch and dinner. I never thought the DoorDash credit from our Chase Sapphire Reserve card would come in handy, but here we are. Ordered from Zenebech last Friday for dinner and our usual order of awaze tibs and vegetarian platter was good for dinner that night and Sunday lunch. Sweetgreen is always a good excuse to go for a midday stroll as is Sundevich when I need the stroll to be a little longer. After picking up our sandwiches and a side of hummus this past Friday, I stopped by Buttercream Bakeshop for some delicious baked goods. Unfortunately Buttercream is closed now. I also walked by All Purpose which displayed their wines for sale for some very reasonable looking prices. If I had more hands, I would certainly have bought a bottle or two. But a return trip is definitely in the cards. This coronavirus situation was also a good excuse to order Chiko, which we were never able to visit prior to this pandemic. Della Barba and Beau Thai have been our delivery go-tos for a long time and we continue to keep them in the rotation. Next up, probably Grazie Grazie for lunch later this week because we miss Taylor Gourmet.
  4. DC location as well as Poca Madre are no longer doing carryout.
  5. We finally ordered something other than a Detroit style pizza (though we also ordered a Detroit style pizza). The NY Style with onions and mushrooms was very tasty. I would say the crust is not as good as Wise Guys, but still very very good. Toppings are first rate (much better than Wise Guys) and I'm a toppings gal, so Della Barba gets the nod overall. But the Detroit style is a truly great pizza and that will probably be our standing order every time we get a pizza from Della Barba.
  6. Taco Bamba (at least the one in DC) is doing carryout. We ordered online and our order was ready when we arrived. Remember to ask for your salsa(s) of choice.
  7. Chiko is a pretty good delivery option for dining in the time of the coronavirus. My cousin stopped by to drop off a bunch of stuff after closing down her dorm room for the semester so we ordered Chiko via Caviar for lunch. Between the three of us, we had the pork and kimchi potstickers, cumin lamb stir fry, the crispy chicken rice bowl, and the Sichuan hot fried chicken sandwich. We all enjoyed our food, but I think I enjoyed my chicken sandwich the best. The potstickers were tasty but I would eat nearly any kind of dumpling at anytime so it's a pretty low bar for me. My cousin said she liked her crispy chicken rice bowl. @MichaelBDC thought his cumin lamb stir fry was all right, but in his view, the cumin lamb we make at home is better. Happy to support local businesses during these extraordinary times, so we'll keep them on our list of delivery options while we balance cooking at home and supporting local restaurants.
  8. Went to ABC Pony for lunch amid the coronavirus pandemic and it was nearly empty. One person at the bar, my friend and I, and a table of four that walked in after us. They were grateful for our business, but I feel terrible for all affected by this disease. This is just the beginning and I fear the next few months are going to be a bloodbath for our fave restaurants and bars among other small businesses. Onto the food, my friend and I split the artichoke salad with broken pesto, and wild greens. I am an artichoke fiend and LOVED this salad. Despite having some pasta for dinner the previous night, I couldn't resist ordering the spaghetti with XO sauce and gremolata. I have nothing to add to @lotus125 description and review. So weird but so tasty. This is a fun place and I would definitely go back for lunch or a casual dinner.
  9. Our ( @MichaelBDC and mine) personal trainer would like to attend. This is not a joke.
  10. We've been depending on A. Literri at Union Market for our wine supply. They usually taste a few bottles on the weekends including one higher end one. The wine selection is mostly Italian wines but they have wines from other regions as well, across all price ranges. Max is great and we really trust his opinions.
  11. I think Ken bought the store from the original owners in late 2018/early 2019, but I don't think it transferred ownership a second time after the original owners sold it.
  12. The difference between $19 chow fun at Tiger Fork and the $12 chow fun you can get in Chinatown is the same difference between the $11 per person pasta you can get at Buca di Beppo and the $19 plate of pasta at Sfoglina.
