  1. Just for a dissenting opinion, we ate at Ford's back in August and thought it was excellent. Very good charcuterie and cheese, lovely salads, interesting entrees, a nicely creative cocktail program, and, for dessert, one of the most evilly genius things I've ever tasted - Toblerone ice cream. It's not fine dining, but it's not trying to be - if I had to describe it in terms of someplace around here, it would be as a more casual version of Sonoma.

  3. Too long since anyone's mentioned this place. Marvelous hot dogs and surprisingly good french fries from the brick-and-mortar location in downtown Leesburg; haven't sampled the wares from the truck but can confirm that it's still at Blue Mount Nursery, at least on weekends.
  4. Corduroy and Palena have both had soft shells on as dinner specials in the last couple of weeks; it's worth calling both to check.
  5. For a lot of these records that aren't in perfect condition, they're having to make a choice between preserving as much of the original audio as possible when they're digitizing, and "remastering," which does technically involve choosing to remove some of that original audio. I asked the same question when I was out at NAVCC a while back, and they said that they're always going to choose to preserve more of the original audio, even if the finished product ends up with additional artifact as a result.
  6. There's definitely more on the way - including lots more from the 1920s, although I haven't heard specifics on what they're planning to include beyond that.
  7. Our Recorded Sound and Web Services folks are justifiably very proud of this launch; the interactive Book of Opera is especially impressive. Yay, team.
  8. I'd have to agree that the local/sustainable revamp has helped; their food used to be really pretty awful, and it's improved considerably since the menu change. The blueberry pancakes are actually worth going there for, which is saying something since SD used to be on my "avoid unless there's no other alternative" list, and the Greenberry's coffee is a huge, huge improvement over their prior coffeelike substance.
  9. I have a very recent report (Sat. night) from the Oak Room at the Seelbach; maybe a little posher than you're looking for, but sounds like the kitchen's back on form after a year or so of staff changes.
  10. A month or so on from the last post, sounds like they may have addressed some of their consistency issues. The crust on both the slices I got was appropriately chewy, the white pizza had plenty of roasted garlic flavor, and the sauce/crust/cheese ratio on the roasted tomato and mozzarella pizza seemed right on. I've been to Good Stuff once and haven't bothered returning despite the fact that I work a block and a half away, but We the Pizza is worth a return trip.
  11. Sonoma and Bistro Bis are generally pretty good bets for random member sightings when Congress is in session; Hunan Dynasty on Penn Ave SE is apparently Chuck Schumer's favorite, so you're likely to see him there.
  12. It may be worth going back and watching this one with the captions turned on. It sounded like he said sambal, what was presented looked like sambar, and it's not clear that either one is what he intended.
  13. Sambal's a pretty standard accompaniment to dosas, but I can't say that I've ever gotten any with soup, seeing as how sambal's kind of soupy already. The chickpeas and melon didn't seem out of line though.
  14. This sounds like a very close relative of the infamous Martinsville Speedway Hot Dog (note that they've "interviewed" the hot dog itself, which is a little scary. Also note that the race is sponsored by Tums. )
  15. The sesame semolina's acceptable, and the big round potatoey thing (forget what it's called) isn't bad either. The baguettes are really terrible, though.
