  1. Can you expand on this Eric? What do you mean? Are you saying that high end sushi is expensive, but it shouldn't be that expensive? In other words if the piece of tuna on your plate cost $10 to buy, prepare and serve, they will charge you $20 for it?
  2. What are you complaining about Eric? That's a mere 240% increase from earlier in this thread! I'm beginning to think some of these places are pushing the envelop to absurd levels because there are enough suckers and fools out there to support this insanity, present company excluded of course! I mean, I have no problem dropping stupid money on a great meal, but lately things have gotten ridiculous. I was looking at the menu for Jont (sister restaurant to Bresca) the other day and the cheapest wine by the glass is $20! (You can get the entire bottle of that Pinot Noir retail, for
  3. Eric - why? There are tons of "weird" dumplings on the dim sum menu so why don't "normal" dumplings make the cut? But the real reason for my post was to say that I did a large carry out order from here last night and they threw in a free order of Sesame Chicken!
  4. These guys are doing their second annual Kinship Roast Chicken Dinner on Sunday night, and shockingly, even in the pandemic, it's not sold out. I just got an email saying seats are avaialble. https://kinshipdc.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Kinship-Roast-Chicken-Dinner-2021-1.pdf
  5. I like the comments! Check out the comments to this Glenn Kessler/Fact Checker article on Biden's address last night where he's desperately looking for something to be horrified over: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/03/11/fact-checking-bidens-address-nation/ This comment pretty much nailed the article in a nutshell: Kessler's summarization that the speech was "light on facts" was more misleading than either of the two things he complains about.
  6. As a counterpoint perhaps, I recently made a reservation at some place which I no longer remember, on an app which I no longer remember for an indoor table, but when I got the confirmation email, it was for an outdoor table. This was in January and not in a warm spell, so I called the restaurant to try to get this changed, and the person on the phone basically said, "Yep, we have you down as inside, but the app doesn't allow the distinction" or something like that. Apologies for the fuzzy memory, but the gist of it was, I reserved an indoor seat, and was given an outdoor seat, but th
  7. I made a very similar post like this last fall. My father's interment was at 9am so I was looking for a brunch/lunch place. Busboys and Poets seemed prefect because they were open all day including breakfast and was very close (Shillington). The deal breaker was that because of Covid we would all have to sit at different tables (6 per table max) and they couldn't set up a coffee station or a buffet and they wouldn't let us mingle about. It would have been a bunch of people sitting a different tables not mixing and not mingling. I don't blame the restaurant for the restrictions of course,
  8. Hahhaha! No worries Don. I went in there once a couple years ago on a pilgrimage to see the White House Christmas Tree, and to eat at Central. Since it was right across the street, we took a stroll through the lobby, and honestly, putting my hate and disgust for Dolt45 aside, I wasn't that impressed with the inside. It's a great old building, but it seemed a little weird with this enormous, cavernous space that was part hotel lobby (front desk/check in), part bar area, and part restaurant(?). I think there were tables there with people eating but I can't completely remember. All of t

  10. As an FYI to the DR community, they are adding a 20% "Included gratuity" on the bill and they do not tell you about this. At least my server didn't mention it. I ended up tipping close to 50% the other night. It's printed on the bill, and definitely my fault for not noticing, but I can't help feel a little taken advantage of.
  11. Gold Rush are amazing storage apples. The flavor improves a month or two after picking and they stay firm and crunchy until June or July when they run out of the previous year's harvest. Of course they store them at something like 33 degrees under nitrogen, but even in the home fridge they'll last forever
  12. In the Before Times, I was a big fan of Kuhn's produce at my local farmers markets. They still come into the area at multiple farmers markets, most days of the week. Their schedule is here and they also have weekly delivery/pickup options. https://kuhnorchards.com/ Kuhn's is a great source for apples, especially, Gold Rush..........the greatest apple you haven't yet tried!! 😉
