  1. I was thrilled to join a friend on opening night of "Addie's 2.0". They plan to start taking reservations in about two weeks and will be on Open Table. Expect lunch to start in a month or so. And brunch will be added at some point. Seating at the new restaurant ins't much more plentiful than the old one. However, there's a nice two-sided bar (one side outdoor, one side indoor). There are several original craft cocktails on the menu. The two we tried were quite nice. But these are a bit complex to put together and I can see the bartenders getting backed up on a busy night. When we a
  2. Third trip to Q in 6 weeks and second dim sum brunch. While the dim sum menu is small it is filled with high quality tasty bites! There were four of us and we ordered up a storm. We had taro puffs, almond shrimp balls, soup dumplings, shrimp dumplings and egg tarts from the dim sum menu as well as the pan fried dumplings, Peking Duck appetizer, Kung Pao chicken and Dry Steamed snapper from the dinner menu. The dim sum was all excellent. The almond shrimp balls were unique and very good. The broth in the soup dumplings was really tasty, although these are probably more petite than the sou
  3. A group of 5 of us (2 of my companions were from Southern China), tried Q for the first time Thursday night. We all had positive impressions overall and wanted to return for the dim sum brunch. This was a business dinner, so I didn't take any pictures. Interestingly enough, the person picking up the tab thought the bill was very reasonable for the amount of food we had. We started with four of the dim sum appetizers. I loved the texture of the Scallion Bubble Pancake when it arrived at the table, but it does get a bit greasy as it cools. We all really enjoyed the Cilantro Fish Roll
  4. My wonderful brother-in-law/resident chef just served these biscuits on Easter. He purchased them frozen from a local grocer. FROZEN..and they were THE BEST biscuits I have ever tasted. Absolute biscuit nirvana! I can't wait for work to be over today so I can go on a hunt for them at a store near me.
  5. While I cannot offer any help on the construction of a wine cellar, I'm more than happy to participate in it's inaugural launch! Cellar warming anyone??
  6. I know I've been MIA for a while, and offer my apologies for being an under-performing member of our community. Let me earn a bit of redemption by letting you all in on a little secret hide-away all the way up in Monrovia Maryland. Wilcom's Inn is a refurbishment of the old dragway bar that sat at the crossroads of Routes 80 and 75. The building has been divided into a sports bar with full kitchen service and a white tablecloth steakhouse with Peruvian flair. L'Academie de Cuisine-trained Chef Mark Fuster has built his menu around steak house staples such as cowboy cut rib eye, NY s
  7. You should have taken a picture of that "thing" they have erected over the entrance to the parking garage. I believe it's supposed to be a Phoenician war ship..but it's "faux" aged...looks crazy...
  8. Can I get a stuffed animal that looks like Zooey's puppy picture??
  9. You may have noticed the adorable kitten who serves as my avatar. Here are a few pics of Belle all grown up, six years later. Also a few of her older brother from another mother, Blade. Belle is very "cat" like...she will deign to lounge across your lap, at her leisure...never yours. Blade is more dog than cat. He follows us from room to room, always wants to be our complete focus, and will cry if you walk out the door and leave him alone with only Belle for company.
  10. First visit to the Pike & Rose location this past Saturday night. I was shocked to realize they had been open for nine months already! We only saw a handful of tables besides our own 4-top all night; one larger party and two 2-tops. Certainly good company can make for a nice evening in any venue, but we really enjoyed ourselves and were planning our next visit while still at our table. We even moved from inside the restaurant to an outside table for after-dinner drinks. The outside tables have heaters and Owen's Ordinary next door has a large outdoor fireplace which kept us comf
  11. We were next door at Carluccio's Saturday night (post to come). Our waitress told us they were in "soft" opening for family and friends, expected to open to the public this week.
  12. Weezy, from your description, it sounds like you may be referring to Gemelli's Italian Market in Darnestown ( 12169 Darnestown Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 2087). I have bought many a great sandwich from them. it's also my go-to place when composing an antipasto plate for company.
  13. Although it's likely not worth a trip across the river, I thought I'd let my MoCo comrades know that the 2nd annual Corktoberfest has been scheduled for October 22-23 at the Fairgrounds. Last year there were about a dozen and a half wineries along with half a dozen food trucks. There's also a small area for wine-related crafts and merchandise. We went last year and had a good time.
