  1. 2Amys is closed. As are Etto, Thip Khao and Hanumanh. Two or three weeks from now there might be few decent spots still open.
  2. Don: How does one choose the bottles at Happy Gyro? (Or is the idea to leave yourself in their hands?)
  3. Dean: Is it significantly better than Arlington Kabob (which is much closer to my house)?
  4. Please never patronize Hill Restaurant Group joints.
  5. The Maketto pop-up, discussed five years ago, is long gone. (James Wozniuk now has his own Malaysian joint at Makan/Thirsty Crow.) District Fishwife has been my go-to for a while (I'm partial to the Donburi bowls). (Alas, Onwuachi's cheesesteak place is no more.) The choices at Union Market have recently improved dramatically, however, with the additions of outposts of Fava Pot, Indigo, and Lucky Buns, as well as Alex McCoy's Thai street food counter, Som Tam, and a new location of Laoban, a dumpling place with other locations (I haven't been) that recently brought onboard Tim Ma as "culinary director." Of these, I've only tried Indigo and Som Tam, both of which were very good. Like everything else at Union Market, these aren't cheap lunches--everything is at least a dollar or two more than it should be (and would be in many other, lower-rent spots). But at least now when I'm over there buying seafood from District Fishwife, I've got plenty of options for lunch, in addition to D.F itself.

  7. Loved Marjie's Grill the one time I was there. Your description is just right.
  8. So glad it lived up to my hype. I haven't even had half those dishes--can't wait to try them!
  9. Harsh! (FWIW, the only thing I've had there is the branzino, which was much better than I expected.)
  10. The hotpot is not the thing to get here (even though most do). The "specials" listed on the board are where it's at.
