  1. Great post as usual, Pool Boy, I think you might be an even bigger Frank fanboy than Don 😋 Can't wait to give this place a try.
  2. I gotta say, I look at the menu again every time I read a good comment or review about the place, and none of the food appeals to me. Seems like people are trying to mimic the success that Orsa & Winston has had in LA, but when I ate there it felt much more like a Japanese restaurant that simply borrowed some Italian ingredients, as opposed to here where they are really trying to mash things up and it just doesn't sound right.
  3. Has anyone else found the coating on the fried chicken to be excessively thick? I thought it put a bit of a damper on an otherwise lovely dish.
  4. Kinda. I'm not sure that thing will be the same if it's not coming out of the precise kitchen that Frank runs. Can't wait for Annabelle to open up, I've been devoid of a high end celebration place in DC since he left Mirabelle
  5. FYI they stopped free corkage here and are now charging $50/bottle, making this a considerably more expensive experience for someone who prefers to bring their own bottle in like myself.
  6. I love that they do the salmon medium rare, to be honest, its how I prepare it at home. St Anselm's continues to be one of our favorite regular spots.
  7. This is driving me nuts because I have eaten those wings a number times (years ago) and remember that sauce distinctly, but can't place where it is
  8. I loved the Miami location when I went in 2015, it was the kind of experience that I"m always hoping to get when I go to Southern, fried chicken joints but rarely get. Hopefully they can bring some of that magic and this franchise doesn't overexpand itself into mediocrity like so many have.....
  9. Great pics. I feel like these two have really fallen off since basically a year after Top Chef. I had one really good meal at VOLT, one solid meal at Range, and a great meal at Ink back many years now but everything since has been absolutely middling. I'll wait to read more reviews before shelling out for this place, the Voltaggios need to earn my trust back..... 😏
  10. I can't understand why the landlord wouldn't be up for that idea, it would have to be better than the $0 they have collected for that space since Palena closed 6 or 7 years ago....
  11. I'm surprised to read this. I ordered takeout from there a couple months back and we must have ordered different menu items. I found the wings to be gloppy and fried to complete submission and the cheesesteak greasy and odd in that the steak was a whole piece rather than the lovely chopped steaks you find at Jim's or Tony Luke's back in the day. I have always been of the mind that when you are eating something greasy/unhealthy, it should be good enough that it is hard to not eat every single bite. I left half of my cheesesteak and had just 2 wings. I have never gotten the Kwame food hype; he seems like a great guy and definitely the ambitious young chef that you would like to see succeed, but in the restaurant business you must yield results, and I'm just not seeing them here or the Wing Fry.
