  1. Opening this weekend for carryout only. I know crabs are pricey but $425 for a bushel - ouch. http://www.capitalcrab.com/ https://dc.eater.com/2019/6/13/18677602/capital-crab-seafood-opening-chevy-chase-dc?fbclid=IwAR2W_snnaXJ64VUD0QZrSAcEe5owFwhBxkZQ8CRJplBFWU--OyDJx3erW8c
  2. Silver Spring location has closed per their Facebook page. "We are sad to announce our Silver Spring location is closed as of today, however a new concept will be coming soon! Thank you to all our customers, and don't forget to check out our Alexandria or DC locations!"
  3. I feel sorry for the innocent diners who may not have a dog in this fight and maybe were just trying to celebrate a special occasion (anniversary, birthday, etc.).
  4. "Ted Cruz Heckled out of DC Restaurant: 'We Believe Survivors!'" on thedailybeast.com Why anyone would want to be in politics is beyond me.

  8. The Philadelphia food critic is not a fan. "Founding Farmers May Have a Good Story and a Good Mission. But the Food ..." by Craig LaBan on philly.com --- See the extensive Washington, DC thread here.
  9. Redwood still has not re-opened following a water main break. http://www.bethesdamagazine.com/Bethesda-Beat/2018/Redwood-Hoping-to-Reopen-Soon-after-Pipe-Burst/ Apparently several large tax liens have been filed by both the state and feds. Looking like this one may be shuttered for good.

  11. Thanks for all recs. The group decided on Galway Bay. They are not very adventurous eaters. Will report back.
  12. We are going to the Caps game at Navy Stadium this Saturday night. We are going with friends and are thinking we would grab dinner somewhere before the game. We have not been to Annapolis is a long time so looking for suggestions. Open to anything as long as it is good.

  15. Thinking we may make some Philly cheesesteaks for a Superbowl party but drawing a blank on where we can pick up some decent quality rolls. Any suggestions?
  16. Downtown location has closed. https://dc.eater.com/2018/1/29/16947294/bold-bite-market-downtown-closed
  17. No, it was definitely Wagyu. I confirmed when I picked it up.
  18. Thanks for the tip. I will give a shot this way next time.
  19. So I e-mailed them last Friday morning with my order, requesting a pick-up on Saturday. Received a confirmation within an hour. Picked the meat up on Saturday with plans to cook it on Sunday. Cooked it on the Big Green Egg. Seasoned it myself. Cooked it for a few minutes at 550-600 degrees and then dropped the temperature down to 375 or so to finish it off. It came out a perfect medium rare. Unfortunately, the meat was extremely chewy despite slicing it fairly thin and across the grain. Not exactly sure went wrong but I highly suspect operator error on my part. I will have to give it another try.
