  1. I felt like scoring a Detroit style pie from Della Barba, but @eatruneat wasn't so sure. I inquired with her as to what she wanted, but she was unsure. I suggested that we try Rumi's Kitchen as I read it was very good and it would give us just the short walk our dog needed. We looked over the menu and decided to go with the Shirazi Salad and Mirza Ghasemi to start and Duck Fesenjoon and Chinjeh Lubia Polo for our 'Feast'. We walked over and found the patio at socially distancing capacity despite the chilly weather outside with propane heating towers ablaze. I had to wait outside with the
  2. I'm guessing Stellina Pizzeria. The crust in the top right of the pic looks like their crust and the dots on the paper under the crust looks like the dots in their logo.
  3. @eatruneat and I were feeling good, but in need of a snack after doing a wine tasting at A Litteri and scoring several bottles - seriously, if you like Italian wine, you need to check out A Litteri. They won an award as the best selection of Italian wine outside of Italy a few years ago. Anyway, we sat down at the bar and were warmly greeted by co-owner Antonio. I ordered a glass of wine and @eatruneat ordered the 'Stellina Sprotz'. After trying her drink I immediately regretted ordering wine. Made with DC distiller Don Ciccio & Figli's Amborsia liqueur and a few other ingredients, it
  4. I don't know that I've ever seen Sietsema give a place three stars. Especially on a first review. Thankfully @eatruneat read something about the restaurant in Washingtonian prior to Sietsema's review coming out so we were able to get a reservation before the madness began. After meeting up with her at Franklin Hall - my god that place is big - and getting my ass handed to me at a few games of Simon while she cackled in delight, we walked around the corner to the subterranean entrance. We were greeted by the chef's wife and General Manager, Carey Tang and shown to our table. For the $65 pe
  5. The Crispy Pommes Anna on the current menu is outstanding! I would go to the bar just to get that...assuming they serve it at the bar. Great for sharing if you're willing to after the first bite.
  6. @eatruneat and I decided last minute to go out for dinner and were hoping to try a new place that we could walk in to. We decided to see if we could get a table at Unconventional Diner thinking we could always go to the bar at Corduroy for their wonderful 3-for-$30 deal if the wait was too long. We walked in and were greeted by the nice hostess who informed us it would be about 20 minutes for a table and that we could wait at the bar. We headed over to the bar and after waiting on one of the bartenders to finish his pontification of the state of craft beer brewing in the US we were able to
  7. Daylight Savings Time dinner was a brined and roasted pork tenderloin from Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home served with lemon oregano potatoes (a favorite of mine) and braised red cabbage (butter, chicken stock, red wine, and red wine vinegar). A great meal for daylight savings time as it was not a lot of work yet resulted in an amazing dinner.
  8. Maybe I just hadn't had proper dan dan noodles, but the ones from Panda Gourmet blew me away. Amazing! Glad @eatruneat made the suggestion
  9. So long, Table. @eatruneat and I had one our first and most memorable dates there. Thank you for the memory. I hope the staff all land on their feet.
  10. It truly was a great time with @eatruneat. @CanY and his staff are at the top of their game and there wasn't a moment that we wanted for anything. As always, the fish was fresh and amazing. Especially the amberjack. I would have eaten the entire fish if I had any room after the wonderful variety of sushi that came before and after it. I know there are other, more expensive sushi restaurants in town, but I can't imagine what they could possibly do better than the team at Sushi Ogawa. We'll be back soon
  11. I saw the tweet come across a few hours ago and it looks like they're almost full...if not completely full by now... Osteria Morini, D.C. @OsteriaMoriniDC 2h Thanks for spreading the word @Eater_DC ! We just opened the last 20 reservations! Hope to see you there! dc.eater.com/2016/12/7/1386…
  12. Now that the baseball season is over, I want to know when Morini Mondays are coming back. Seems like they're a little late considering when it started last year. It's been too long since @eatruneat and I have enjoyed a meal there
