  1. Actually, my daughter (the little girl in my profile avatar, now 20) made the boule!
  2. Wings there still rock. Pro tip: for takeout, order by the quart instead of bowl. Much cheaper per serving, and you probably have most of the stuff they're going to throw on in the house anyway.
  3. So far we have done Bob's Shanghai, A&J, CSNY Pizza, Spice Xing, and Hard Times Cafe. Tomorrow is Yekta Kabob.
  4. I will readily let people in when they signal and attempt to merge reasonably. If it's obvious that they've zoomed past a long line of cars and tried to cut in at the front, I am hugging the left side of the lane like a motherf*cker. Merge in behind me, jackass.
  5. Obviously postponed for now. Since the close date is June 14, I hope they will open again before closing for good.
  6. Wish I would have seen this earlier. On social media today they announced that they would open tables at Metier, and I saw at least one walk-in.
  7. My wife and I got engaged at Grapeseed, and our first date was there. But we didn't meet on DR.
  8. That dinner was sold out within seconds of the email going out. Luckily, I was able to grab a table off the waitlist at 6pm. Anyone else going?
  9. As Tim's review mentions, they don't provide much help in assembling a dry hot pot, and it's too easy to fumble the combination. But when you get it right, it's addictive.
  10. That's a fair assessment. It was a very good meal, but it should have been a great meal.
  11. After a little over 8 years, Jon and Ankur are closing Pizza CS to make way for the Wegmans development. They still crank out some of the finest Neopolitan pizzas in the DC area. Please come help us give them a Rockwellian farewell on Sunday March 29th at 2p. Since they're so fast with orders, it makes sense for people to just order on their own, and I'm sure there will be a lot of sharing going on. I'll order a few salads and nibbles when I check in to supplement, and of course there will be some donuts and ice cream. I told them we could get 20-30 people, so don't make me a liar. RSVP here, and I will PM you my phone number for day-of communications. Cheers!
  12. Nearly 20 years ago when they opened, they were the tops for cue in the area. They have slipped, but more than that, the market just zoomed past them.
  13. I agree with all of your "incredibles" save two: fried taro cake and leek & shrimp dumpling, both of which I think are inferior to their counterparts at China Garden (Rockville) and New Fortune (Gaithersburg), my regular haunts. Everything else was pretty spot-on. I think it falls a sliver short in quality next to China Garden, for about 25% less money. But CG is 10 minutes from my house, and VK is 30, so I'm unlikely to return to VK unless I'm in that hood, or Dean calls again and says he's ready to go check out the things we missed (BBQ, fry cart, chicken feet, tripe ...)
  14. Absolutely. Bringing my kid in every month was how I got him a job there one summer! I still think they have more of my money in the long run.
