  1. Wow, my niece who was the subject of this original post is turning 30 this year!
  2. Sorry you did not have a good experience when you went. We did, but they are still very new and probably need to work out the kinks with consistency.
  3. @deangold I discovered shiokoji when I discovered Miyoko's products. I was making a mushroom pate for Thanksgiving, and wanted it to be vegan for my SIL. I was thrilled to find the cream cheese and butter products from Miyoko were very tasty. And that I also was able to eat them, due to no soy! I just started to look on all the options on Amazon, so glad to know what works and does not work for you. I may be asking for more detailed instructions if I try to replicate some of your efforts 😁
  4. These photos were taken the night we were there-we were sitting just to the right of the photographer! (We had everything that was shown in these pictures, plus more!)
  5. Not this weekend, but driving home now from a delicious dinner. Palena 2.0 🥰 Seriously-Mr. S said the chicken was just as he remembered it, and missed it. The menu was pared back from the original opening plans to better be able to manage and for the kitchen to get in its stride. We had no hiccups tonight. I’ll post menu and what we ordered after we get home.
  6. Las minute--If anyone is around town tonight, I find myself possibly waiting for Mr. S while he has a dinner meeting at Joe's Stone Crab. I was thinking of hanging out in the bar and getting a bite and wait for him, if anyone would like to join? I'm also game to go elsewhere nearby... (He just texted me about this-originally thought his meeting was Wednesday so I would have made plans sooner!)
  7. Annabelle's website showed that it was "open" at 5:30 today. Must be the soft opening, as official opening is Friday 17th. Popville has the bar, dessert, and wine menus as well. It reads very much like Palena, to me (and I don't see that as a bad thing.😁) If we hadn't already had plans today for Mr. S' birthday, we would seriously have considered popping in to the bar. Plan is to celebrate when we go on the 21st!
  8. Fingers crossed - Annabelle was slated to open "mid January" but I haven't heard anything anywhere about it. I found it interesting that today's article in the Washingtonian about the top ranked restaurant openings they are looking forward to in 2020, did not even make a mention of Annabelle! Good- better chance for me to get a reservation! 😉
  9. I’m sorry to say I’ve totally missed seeing this topic! Hopefully my reply will ensure I see the next class/gathering. 😁 Always wanted to learn to make tamales, but not adventurous enough to do so on my own.
  10. Whenever I find myself searching, it is by location first, then i can see what is nearby and what I am in the mood for... if neighborhood or area listings are lost, I don’t see it being as useful for me.
  11. Dang. If I like it, it closes. 😟 Unfortunately neither location was convenient for me, but I would go out of my way when the weather would allow, to grab a coffee and sandwich for lunch.
