  1. You mean if smokey actually makes the 1400-mile round trip to grab some potstickers and spicy cukes--only then should she write to Debbie w/her appreciation? 😉
  2. Taro is reopened for carry-out only and ... well, it's far better sushi than any other I've had during COVID. Not cheap, of course, but not absurd (or NYC-level) prices, either. We had both the Bara Chirashi ($24) and Jo Chirashi ($38). The latter has better and more important cuts (a rich tuna/uni), but the Bara has considerably more food, and it's as great as it's always been (somewhere upthread above I've raved that it's one of my favorite DC lunches). There's a lot to experiment with on the menu, too.
  3. Just to be clear: That's Alinea, not Makan.
  4. Not having made it to Albi before COVID, we finally got carry-out last night--the whole bass dinner. Absolutely delicious. And a very generous series of dishes for the price ($35/person plus 30% tip & tax). The Levantine Old-Fashioned was also fantastic--and a good deal ($20 for what amounted to three drinks). GRILLED BLACK BASS-- MD crab + blistered tomato + corn butter --wood-fired pitabeiruti-style hummus pea-hini + harissa + grilled onions tomato + melon fattoush -- sumac + smoky labne tabouli -- heirloom tomato + a lot of parsley & mint burnt cinnamon cookies -- brow
  5. Head's up: RH reopening Friday for service -- prix fixe ($45 plus tax and 22% service fee + beverages for choice of three options for each course). If anyone is going to be able to pull this off safely, responsibly and deliciously, Jill, Jon and Bill surely will. Check out their plan on the website.
