  1. They are also serving the rolls "Connecticut style" - hot lobster in drawn butter instead of mayo. It's my personal preference if you ask me.
  2. It looks like the Bice group is opening up a restaurant in the old Old Homestead space in Bethesda.
  3. That's because he's so gosh darn cute! Well it's happened before.
  4. Staunton I'm heading to the Shenandoah this weekend with some friends - one of whom is from Staunton, VA. He's recommended that we have dinner at Staunton Grocery. Their website currently lists only a sample spring menu. Does anyone have any experience with this place or know anything about the chef (Ian Boden)?
  5. I'll be celebrating quite well this weekend thank you very much!
  6. It looks like the place is about to open. But "Cherry" has been painted over on the awning with the word "Plum Blossom".
  7. It looks like there will soon be a new Persian restaurant opening up a couple doors down from Philadelphia Mike's on Wisconsin Avenue. Anyone have the scoop on it? A visit to the current website (Javan Restaurant) brings up a password prompt.
  8. I must whole-heartily agree. What's the point of having "the single best pie in the D.C. area" if you have to be some part of inner circle (or read food bulletin boards) to find out about it? At the very least, add it to a specials menu or something.
  9. I'm going to be in Provincetown (without a car) for 10 days next month. These suggestions are a great start, but are there any other places I should check out or avoid completely?
  10. Although I do find this thread entertaining, how much more of this "my penis is bigger than your penis" do we have to take?
  11. Yes - it must've been really trying finding the farm-raised creature in a 150 acre fenced in area. Click
  12. This info is probably way outdated, but if no one else replies, at least it's a start. Click me!
  13. My buddies all loved this place when I took them there for dinner this past Sunday evening, but perhaps the best compliment came from my friend who had just recently returned to the U.S. after a year-long stint in Tokyo. "This place smells like a Japanese restaurant is supposed to." Tone Change: OK - although my friends were impressed, dinner was not really what I've been used to whenever I've gone during the week. Perhaps it's because it was a Sunday night and they were swamped, but most of the sushi I had was merely decent (the textures seemed a bit off) except for the amazing spicy scallop roll and white tuna nigiri. We also ordered the mountain vegetable kamameshi which I found to be a bit bland. I think I'll stick with the sweeter eel version from now on.
  14. Down 11 lbs total since January 1st. I obviously won't be making the full 20 by next weekend, but it's a good start.
  15. For regulars of the Dupont market on Sundays, who do you go to for meat? I stopped by this past Sunday morning to pick up a pound of bacon for a last minute brunch with friends (our moms were all traveling out of the country for Mother's Day). It tasted great, but I'd say the bacon was 90% fat (not that there's anything wrong with fat - it's just I would've bought more had I known I'd be left with only enough strips to feed 3 people).
  16. Most of mine seem to have already been covered: Cilantro - need I explain more? I've learned to not mind it when it's chopped up finely in salsas and the like, but there is no way you can get me to put sprigs of that stuff in a bowl of pho. I'll even pick the leaves out of a Vietnamese garden roll. Green beans - now I'm okay with sauteed haricot verts, but there's something about the texture of a cooked green bean (especially the pre-cut ones from the freezer section) that makes me shudder (like hearing nails on a chalkboard) when I bite into one. Colas - Coke, Pepsi, Tab (and even Dr. Pepper) all make me gag. Doctors suspect an allergy but haven't been able to figure out what it is in colas I may be allergic to. Bittermelon - my parents grow it in their backyard. I think it's vile.
  17. Is anyone planning on attending the Voting Rights march on Monday? (And to make it relevant to the board) If yes, would anyone like to meet up for a bite beforehand?
  18. The person who put the remainder on his card owes you $20.00.If you simplify the situation into just 2 parties, this becomes clearer. For example, you have a bill for $100.00 and plan on leaving $120.00 (or $60.00 each). Let's say you end up putting $60 on your card (which includes tip) and the other person puts "the remainder" on his card (or $40.00). When your credit slips come, you will have paid the correct amount, but most likely the person with the remainder will see his slip of $40.00 and think he only has to tip $8.00 leaving a total of $48 instead of $60.
  19. I'd be interested. I've only been there once.
  20. Apparently all of these dinners and happy hours have taken their toll. I was down 8 lbs, but as of today's weigh-in I'm back up to 185 But I also skipped the gym too much this past week due to the weather so hopefully once I get back on track the pounds should go away once again.
