  1. I agree with all the choices here. I would add Amoos for kabobs and muru ( Vienna) may not have the spelling right, for Korean.
  2. Second Al Dente’s post. Claudia and I have eaten here twice in the last month. I also had the Crispy Chicken Breast and was equally impressed. We also ate off the bar menu one night with equally nice results. Hidden gem in the Vienna area.
  3. Wow it’s been years since I have seen prices this good
  4. This has been our goto place for several years. Lots of other great dishes on the menu as well. Try the spicy cabbage chicken, tofu and eggplant hotpot and pork with dried bean curd.
  5. All: Many of you know our fellow member Monica Bhide, author and literary coach. Last January, her world drastically changed when her husband suffered some medical issues and Monica had to start to care for him full time. She could use our support through a gofundme page that has been set up. I would appreciate if you could help with her support. https://www.gofundme.com/inspiration-through-tragedy thanks Scott J
  6. I think its just a few of the sausages to start. You still need to go to the mothership for Pastrami and Corn Beef
  7. Great News! Stachowski brand sausage and meats will be in 17 local Harris Teeter stores starting January 9th. You no longer have to wait and buy them at the farmers market, travel to Georgetown or do a "drug" deal out the back of his car at a unknown location (anyone remember this?). Show our own Jamie Stachowski some love and buy a package or two the first week! He will appreciate it and you will get to sample some fine sausage!
  8. Chef Jeff Heineman at Grapeseed has decided to offer a special menu on Friday and Saturday nights this weekend, to benefit CSAAC. Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children (CSAAC) has been supporting educational and residential services in Montgomery county for over 35 years. Its a special place and my Aunt has been a resident for some time. It looks like a great menu at a great price. Claudia and I plan to go on Saturday evening. If you would like to meet us, it would make the night a lot of fun. There will be a special menu for $40. And Grapeseed will donate $10 to CSAAC from each menu ordered: The details are here: Grilled Caesar Salad, Pork Belly BBQ Chicken and Wild Mushroom Soup, Cornmeal Dumplings Smoked Brisket, Crispy Potatoes, Pickled Onions Fried Apple Pie A la Mode Drink Pairings $20 Just RSVP and let Grapeseed know you want the special menu. We are also having a private concert at Strathmore Sunday night with Martina McBride.Great seats are still available.
  9. I stopped in last week, while I am not really eating bread these days, I had a bite of the pull pork with house pickles and a taste of the bulgogi sub with kimchi puree. Both were excellent and I plan on returning to try the rest of the menu. The ingredients are top notch, a very polite and engaged staff and a nice build out. Really a worthy addition to Vienna!
  10. Udvar Hazy, out in the burbs of Dulles, is a great place to journey, while there, grab an iMax movie as well
  11. Looks like the site is closing so you will have to google the previous posts.. Happy April Fools
  12. But the real story Born in Baltimore, MD Couple of years in Towson, then the rest in Timonium (parents still live in the house I grew up in) Summers at Camp Dudley in Westport NY and the rest of the summers on Buzzard's Bay University of MD College Park for two years, then 2.5 years at Lynchburg Colllege, Lynchburg Virginia\ Back to Timonium, worked in Baltimore, Ellicot City, Frederick Then off to Wilmington De for a couple of years Back to Bmore (Hampden hunn!) Then Fairfax, Va, year and 1/2 in Chevy Chase Mclean and now Tyson's
  13. In west Philadelphia born and raised On the playground was where I spent most of my days Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school When a couple of guys who were up to no good Started making trouble in my neighborhood I got in one little fight and my mom got scared She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air' I begged and pleaded with her day after day But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket. I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'. First class, yo this is bad Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass. Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like? Hmmmmm this might be alright. But wait I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, all that Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat? I don't think so I'll see when I get there I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air Well, the plane landed and when I came out There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out I ain't trying to get arrested yet I just got here I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared I whistled for a cab and when it came near The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror If anything I could say that this cab was rare But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - 'Yo, homes to Bel Air' I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later' I looked at my kingdom I was finally there To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air
  14. The new restaurant is very cool, lots of details and they ripped out almost all of INOX in the process. I believe they spent well over $4M to date and they still have other plans for a porch. The drinks we sampled were very very good, will remark on the food after they open on the 5th.
