  1. I live down the street from Indique and get take out once or twice a month. I also dine in occasionally. They do a better job with meat than vegetables. Their curries are decent. Their bread is sub par. Overall, it's not a place that I would go out of my way for.
  2. I used to work in the area and I ate here a lot. I agree that they are not the best, although some days are better than others. I think they're pretty good when you compare them to their competiton in the area, but that's an awfully big qualifier. There just aren't that many good places for take out lunch downtown and one can only eat at Greek Deli so many times.
  3. Special pizza with green tomatoes, grana and an egg at 2 Amy's. Very good and very rich. Green tea frozen yogurt at TangySweet. It was good I suppose, but I don't understand what all the froyo fuss is about.
  4. Having driven this stretch many times I have never found anything worth stopping for between Morgantown and DC. As for Morgantown itself, I have no idea.
  5. I need to find a place that can seat 14 tomorrow night. Requirements: casual, kid friendly, Crystal City or close in downtown.
  6. The menu changes weekly, so I am not sure what's on at the moment. Stuffed pastas and gnocchi are consistently excellent. Terrines are the best I have ever had.
  7. I take I-68 to Southern Ohio often and I am not aware of any good food on that route. I'd imagine there could be something worthwhile in Morgantown but I've never got off the highway to explore.
  8. If you priceline a 4 star hotel, you can get a good deal on hotel downtown (west side of the river). All of the 4 stars are centrally located. If you want something "hip" you can try the Ace Hotel. More importantly, eat at Le Pigeon.
  9. We were also at Corduroy on Friday night. It was nice to see some familiar faces and taste some familiar cooking. We started with crab custard/soup and scallop tartare. The custard was the only dish that didn't really work for me. The tartare was very nice though. We followed with crispy fluke w/ potato salad and salmon with snap peas. Both were perfectly prepared. The potato salad was the best I've ever had, hands down. The service, as always, was exceptional (thanks Katt.) The menu was a mix of stand by's (whole chicken, tuna, beet salad) and newer dishes. The new space is very nicely done and it goes without saying that it's a vast improvement over the Sheraton. As a former resident of the neighborhood, I think that putting a 4 star restaurant on that block is rather forward looking. It looks a little rough right now, but in a couple years it should be buzzing.
  10. Unless they've changed it recently the fish is fried, not grilled. It's scored crossways which could be why it appears grilled at a distance. And it's pretty tasty.
  11. My sage bush is officially out of control. Does anyone have an idea for what to do with a lot of sage? Most things that I cook only require a couple of leaves.
  12. As a fan of The Wire, my brand of choice is Honey Nut Cheerios.
