  1. First visit last weekend and brought home a treat for the family. Never heard of this bakery produce before, but it was worth a journey and not bad on day 2. Kouign Amann
  2. I loved those popovers at Patricia Murphy's, although I think the one I visited more often was on Long Island - Manhassat maybe.
  3. Shrimp tacos with chipotle crema, salsa, cilantro lime slaw and guac along with roasted kalettes from Twin Springs Farm.
  4. Made shakshuka from NYT last night. It may be more of a brunch dish, but we shared our meal with some vegetarian friends and added hummus and babaganoush, olives and a salad along with warm pita.
  5. I was unable to snag a same rez last Saturday but decided to do the line thing. A trip that used to take me 15 minutes door to door back in the day took me 40 minutes to Cap Hill for unknown reasons so I got in line at 4:30 rather than 4. I was 15th in line- most folks wanted to eat right away and I was given the opportunity to have a table at 6ish. There were 4 of us and we ordered almost all small plates. The standouts were: lychee salad bucatini pistou, Japanese pancake with mushroom jus (an umami bomb ) more like a dense soufflé with mushrooms and mushroom butter octopus bolognese foie gras French toast with cinnamon ice cream. Not PETA friendly but a delicious bite! A fun evening!
  6. Thank you, Shaho. Yes their system is buggy and I discussed the issue with Mike, the manager, who explained that while things were very slow during the furlough, they have been slammed with a combo of their new online res and the holiday gift card promo that came with a reservation, leaving only a third of seats available for same day res.
  7. Has anyone had success with making online same day reservations at Rose's Luxury? I have been trying for weeks @ exactly 9:00am and have not been able to get a table at any time on a Saturday, despite the fact that the website indicates that Saturday same day res are a possibility .
  8. I buy pine nuts at Mediterranean Bakery on Pickett st. They have large bags from China and really small ( and much much pricier) pine nuts from Spain .
  9. Had a great dinner celebrating a birthday last Tuesday. There were 6 of us and we were seated in the pasta room- quiet and private . We had great service and really enjoyed the pastas- I had white truffle with mine! The soft polenta with mushroom appetizer and grilled calamari and octopus were highlights! Happy to return!
  10. Sorry to rain on this parade but had dinner there Saturday night and the food and service was terrible. Perhaps they were missing some waitstaff but tho I have enjoyed the Tenley Town location for years, the food Saturday night was not good . There were 6 of us and we ordered several appetizers and all had different mains. The dishes had no flavor - as if they had run out of Indian spices.
