  1. Cava tends to be a good bet for wine and they've added some items to their menu recently which are a nice change of pace. Senart's has a solid wine list as well.
  2. Does anyone know where I can find gooseberries in the area? Willing to drive out a ways to get them if I have to.
  3. I have some friends in town from Chicago who have asked if they can pick up a case of Old Style (anyone from or who has been to Chicago will know what I'm talking about). Anyone know of any good liquor stores in the area with a good beer selection that might have it?
  4. I went back in January soon after they opened. I was rather pleased with the Shawarma, but thought the service set up was slow and inefficient. Certainly a lot of potential there. It's good to have some competition in the neighborhood.
  5. The roof is going to be the place to be during the spring and summer. I remember taking the tour over a half year ago (back in May or June maybe?) and I'm so happy to see this opening. I wish I could be in town for it. Good luck Dave!
  6. I think it depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for straight up sushi, I feel that Sushi Ko might be the better choice. I've gone to Kaz when I want to mix things up a little. You can't go wrong with either place, I think it just depends on what you're looking for.
  7. So I'm in Chicago for the month on business, living in the Lakeview area (Belmont and Lakewood), and was wondering what's in the area that I shouldn't miss. I'm at work for most of the day (and night), so I don't have a lot of time, but I'd like to hit some of the highlights while I'm here.
  8. Tom on his weekly chat today said: Capitol Hill: Hi Tom, If you had to pick one Italian restaurant inside the Beltway that would make you think, "Wow, when did I arrive in Italy?", which would it be? Thanks! Tom Sietsema: Right now? Obelisk. The food coming out of that kitchen these days borders on enchanting.
  9. The Arizona Republic just gave his location there 4.5 stars. Frankly, it doesn't sound like anything special. I'll just keep putting my name down at Ray's like everyone else. http://www.azcentral.com/ent/dining/articl...729bourbon.html
  10. Eric Ripert weighs in on the "perfect burger" http://www.gourmet.com/restaurants/2008/07/ripert_burger What are the general thoughts on his burger at WestEnd? I'm still saving enough money to buy it.
  11. How about just a place called "on a stick"? You've got your meat on a stick. Veggies on a stick. chocolates on a stick. This needs to happen. and it needs to happen soon.
  12. What a great idea and great piece of news. It'll be interesting to see how this changes the dynamic in the main arteries of Arlington. Hopefully it'll bring some more diverse options into the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor.
  13. I had a very good meal at Etete this weekend, no reason not to stop by there tonight or any other.
  14. I don't want to keep adding to the idea that there's nothing but hate out there for Spike and this restaurant, but I just wanted to post a quote (along with the associated paragraph) of his from the article about him in the Express today and get reactions: Tall and lanky, with a wiry beard and a rotating collection of pork-pies, fedoras, and panamas, Evangelos "Spike" Mendelsohn left his job and his digs for what he calls the next gastronomic frontier: "D.C. is the next big food city. It's like Vegas was a few years ago. And nobody is doing what we are yet. We're paving a way for ourselves here in D.C., but also, we're paving a new direction for the food culture here." Discuss.
