  1. Had a very good, creative chirashi today ($21) at the Chinablock location. Only 12 seats; approximately the same pricing as Takumi, perhaps a bit higher. Two levels of omakase available: $38 for nine pieces plus handroll; $50 for 12 + handroll. It'll likely be the best sushi in that price-range in the District.
  2. Any further suggestions w/r/t Jim's query (best pho these days)? I haven't tried any of the three he mentions, nor Balo.
  3. I got the burger yesterday and it was better than other things I've had there--but not exceptional. I, too, love what they're trying to do, and DSLee and Tim Carman are to be trusted, but perhaps it's simply not to my taste.
  4. FWIW, just three blocks from there, on Grand Street, is a great new (and very inexpensive) Cantonese place, Green Garden Village. Make sure you order the dried scallop/shrimp rice roll if you go in the a.m.; barbecue thereafter.
  5. These two statements are mutually exclusive: "They are open." "Mr. & Mrs. Li no longer own it." Someone else might have bought the name and the fixtures, but the restaurant that is the subject of this thread is, I assure you, no longer open for business.
  6. Sorry, I think there'd be a copyright issue there. The principal theme, however, is that inconsistency is rampant. Here's the Top 10: 10. Hammerdown Barbeque 9. Liberty Barbecue 8. Garden District 7. Monk’s BBQ 6. Rolling Rib Part II 5. Sloppy Mama’s 4. DCity Smokehouse 3. Hill Country Barbecue Market 2. Federalist Pig 1. Texas Jack’s

  8. I agree that the original Chang restaurant was the best--and that he, like Chef Li, remains capable of hitting those highs on occasion.
  9. The fridge is almost cleaned out, so tomorrow night (Tuesday) is the last dance for Grace Garden--the most unusual, and most nights the best, Chinese restaurant in the DMV for the past 14 years. Very sad to be losing such an idiosyncratic, family-run place with a master at the helm. (The meal we had tonight might have been the best ever.)
  10. Thought folks following this thread might be interested: Tomorrow night is the last dance for Grace Garden in Odenton--the most unusual, and most nights the best, Chinese restaurant in the DMV for the past 14 years. Very sad to be losing such an idiosyncratic, family-run place with a master at the helm. (The meal we had tonight might have been the best ever.) Not everything will be available tomorrow -- they're trying to clean out the fridge -- but there's probably enough to make for a great, varied, meal.
