  1. We visited NYC last weekend for our annual trek and stopped by a new places, one being the Heatonist at Chelsea Market. As a fan of the Youtube series, Hot Ones, it was fun to try a couple of the lower hot sauces at the counter.

  2. Thank you for the informative talk. Sorry that I couldn't participate while it was ongoing but the questions and answers were very engaging. There really is a diversity to Indian cuisine which is unknown in the western world. In previous posts, my argument has been that things don't really travel outside of the area and I think that is especially true for Indian cuisine.

    Paid Parking Slowly Killing Reston Town Center?

    And we still don't have any interesting non chain places to eat other than places at Lake Anne!
  4. There is that element of the DC dining scene, where the power brokers frequent, restaurants have to bear the cost of association. It's a funny little dance, I guess in LA it is the same for Hollywood and in NYC for all stripes of celebrities, too.

    What Are Your Kids Eating Tonight?

    My wife made some pesto pasta for our son's dinner tonight, while I finished the leftover curry chicken and rice. Oh, she also made a grape tomato balsamic vinaigrette side dish. Trying to decide if I should go the ice cream route for dessert or just finish the last Petit Pot Riz Au Lait?

    We only ate at the Counter once, though have been meaning to go since they got the Impossible Burger. Tried the Beyond burger at home and was pleasantly surprised.
  9. Mosaic was already closed today at lunchtime. Sign in the door read location closed permanently.

    BGR and the Counter seem like the same place! As a side, stopped by the Bike Lane's new home and enjoyed some of their beer and desserts.
  11. We've enjoyed the risotto balls (regular) over the past few years with our son mainly at the Mosaic location. The sandwiches have been hit or miss. Over expansion and bad financials does seem like it will shut down many places that do have the appearance of being successful.
  12. Glad to hear they are adopting new strategies for handling openings in their evenings. Rose's has always been a high volume/high quality restaurant so being at full capacity is to their benefit.

    Video Door Bells

    That doesn't make me feel bad about still not setting up the water leak sensor for the past year! But had started the smart home process with some light switches and recessed led lighting last weekend. Think will slowly start adding some smart home features this fall.

    How has the Ring 2 been Eric? Just started installing some smart switches in the house looking to get some monitoring equipment as the next step.
