  1. For that guidebook you were looking for on craft beer, try: Craftcheck. (It was created by a good friend of mine, so I may be a bit biased)
  2. Thanks all. I'll have to check out Almond next time I'm in town, that might have done the trick. The party kept growing, up to 6 ppl, and we ended up at Ma Peche. It seems like I've been to the city twice a year for the past 5 years, and at least 6 of those times, after looking all around for a new place to try, I just say f it, and let's go to a place where I know the food is excellent and I can get a reservation (turns out that when I called, changing from 3 to 4 to 6 people wasn't a problem). I hope to make better use of the guide and you guys for the next trip. Highlights from last night include the ever-awesome duck and habanero fried chicken. More in to follow in the proper thread.
  3. So I'm trying to get the quiet vibe of Corduory, as much as anything else. I think I've been to Bar Americain before, and that's not how I remember it.
  4. Hi, Quick trip to NYC just came up for tomorrow. Looking for something like Corduroy - quiet enough for a decent work conversation, excellent food, but not Per Se pricing as I have to pick up the tab for 5 of us. Ideally, this place is a quick walk from Penn Station. I love going to Ma Peche, but it's a bit too far, and they can't take 5 people til later in the evening. Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
  5. In looking for a space to host a private event around Chantilly/Herndon in a few weeks, I clicked on their site to learn that Europa is now closed.
  6. A bit sad to see that the Shields are headed back to Chicago. I had a great time at Townhouse and Riverstead back in 2010 and would have loved to have seen them set up shop in the DC area. http://www.chicagotribune.com/dining/john-karen-shields-town-house-virginia-new-chicago-restaurant-story.html
  7. The bar at Corduroy. Even though I'm there on nearly a weekly basis, I never tire of the 3 course options. And the corkage fee is very reasonable at $25 (max of 1 bottle). Take your leftover $30 and each of you can get another starter from the regular menu, or some cheese or dessert wine.
  8. Heading up to MSG for fight night with my brother tomorrow. He's got his heart set on steaks and I'm struggling to figure out where we should go and maybe even find a deal (I know, too much to ask). Staying at 48th and Lexington, so anywhere midtown is fair game, but willing to travel if the times work out with still getting to the fight by 9pm. Thanks.
  9. My favorite risotto is at Primi Piatti, where they finish it in a wheel of cheese tableside. I've probably had it there over a dozen times through the years and while it may not be "high art" like at some of the places mentioned above, it is pretty damn tasty.

    Chef's Tables

    I haven't been there yet to confirm, but Bidwell http://bidwelldc.com/ in Union Market was offering a Chef's counter tasting menu when I was looking to try a new place last month.
  11. Are you sure on that? It looks like it's around $25 a bottle from what I can find: http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1128080. I think you were looking at the 15yr. old bottle for around $140.
