  1. Pupatella Pizzeria Aims for Fall Opening in Reston by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Although the COVID-19 pandemic stalled plans to open but early 2020 at 1821 Wiehle Avenue, founding partner Michael Berger told Reston Now the restaurant is planning for a fall opening.
  2. I believe it at multiple locations, but this was at Reston. They are offering USDA Prime burger today, curbside pick up with a bottle of Pebble Lane, for $19.99. Specials change and are not every day.
  3. Banana Nutella Bread, stupid good. Lasted 48 hours in our house.
  4. Mortons delivered to our doorstep, USDA Prime burgers for $11. They also had Filet Sandwiches for $1/each....could not beat that, kids devoured them (so did I).
  5. Because around here (DC/MD/VA) they are going to cut you off anyway, whether you let them in or not, so why should they wave "thank you" - they own the road 😉 I, too let people in all the time, and maybe 15% of the time get a "thank you" wave. I rarely use my horn unless someone clearly doesn't see me - since that is a 100% guaranteed 🖕 - If I ever get honked at, I always respond with the "thank you" wave.
  6. MAKERS UNION PUB COMING TO RESTON TOWN CENTER by Chris Wadsworth, TheBurn We’re a diverse team of makers — baristas, bartenders, chefs, mixologists, roasters, distillers and brewers — who came together to create a neighborhood place we all need.
  7. No specific recommendations - Boston is a great city - the Northend is littered with Italian stuff, stores and restaurants. Depending on the nights there, you may need reservations, but literally take your pick, of what looks cool - you will likely have a great meal.
  8. Sakura does take reservations, but will not seat you unless your entire party is present. Place is big, and they get you seated, cook and out of there pretty quickly. Double your mileage limit (19) but an easy drive on the Toll Road is Nagoya. They take reservations, are in Ashburn, and have been there almost 20 years. We have probably been there 30 times. Kids love it, tables seat 10 and it is more calm and less rushed than Sakura. I think Sakura has ~20 locations, Nagoya 1.
  9. Korean Fried Chicken Spot to Open in Reston by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Bonchon coming to Plaza America - soon to be home to some great wings.
  10. Lost Dog Cafe, has always had a pretty decent selection of beers on tap, as well as bottled and seasonal beers to go. Not sure if there is a thread on this place, but I have been going here since the late 80s and happy to start one. The detailed descriptions of the beers are helpful too if one willing to try something on description alone. Food and pizzas are very good at the original (North Arlington) location, some of the off-shoots are hit-or-miss.
  11. The Capital Burger to Open in Reston Town Center Next Week by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Roll up your sleeves Reston, and prepare for greatness on a brioche bun. The Capital Burger, with its luxe burgers, hand-cut fries, boozy shakes and an exceptional wine list, is a welcome addition to Reston Town Center’s fine dining scene
  12. Finally made it by to check out the location/wine/food options. Kitchen & bar are still in the same locations as they were before. Kitchen is opened up now with the renovation and they raised the ceilings and really opened the play up a lot. Clean, crisp lines, bare wood and simple painted wood. Service was ok, food was very good from appetizers <calamari, white truffle garlic bread, grilled cauliflower> Entrees followed and included pizza, squid ink pasta with calamari & white shrimp, chicken parm, bolognese all with fresh pasta. The Super Tuscan wine we enjoyed was reasonably priced and everyone enjoyed it. Overall - worth a try, place was decently busy and bill wasn't bad either.
  13. Had dinner here (Penn Quarter location) twice this past week. Originally enticed by Restaurant week offerings, and lured back because the dinner was good enough to simplify and try their burgers. Ricotta gnocchi truffle cream, was some of the best I have had. Literally cut the gnocchi into halves to make it last longer in order to mop up the truffle cream. Chicken pot pie braised chicken, baby portobello mushrooms, pearl onion, cheddar biscuit top - the cheddar biscuit top was more of a flakier, dumpling consistency than a more traditional pie--type of crust. The braised chicken and broth all finished well; not a piece left at our table of 4. Caramel banana bread pudding brown butter ice cream, banana rum caramel - cannot describe it any better than that - enough said. Atmosphere was lively, bar was hoping before the dinner crowd picked up both nights. The circa 1950s black/white themed dining area was comfortable and sounds reasonable. You could talk at a normal tone without shouting as is often the case in open-air type restaurants. Service never missed a beat, and from water service to clearing our tables efficiently everything flowed seamlessly. Overall dining time ~1 hour 15 minutes with 2 rounds of cocktails from the bar. Bar drinks were quick and pretty consistent. Nightly specials are static and looked good; hence why we came back for the Burger Royale Thursday night. Burgers were very good, and the fries made all of us clean our plates.
  14. Local Food Truck-Turned-Restaurant Expands to Ashburn by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Business must be pretty good for a second location. Have recently redone the original location to get more seats/table/barstools - glad to see life is good for them, very nice people and great food.
  15. Great game last night vs the NJ Devils, whom the CAPS lost to by 5 recently. A 5-2 WIN with Ovechkin contributing his 25th career hat trick was excellent. The actual hats on the ice kept coming for probably 5 minutes and the turnout pretty decent for a Thursday night. Dinner at The Smith prior to puck drop was actually very good as well. Samsonov played pretty well - the CAPS giving up a goal on their own power play advantage but the kid is quick and seems to have the speed needed for a decent future in the NHL.
