  1. Tequila Grande closed late last year ( property will be redeveloped) owners moved to Oakton and open a new place called Mama Tiger. I suggest closing this thread.
  2. Da Dominico closed earlier this year, RIP, their sister restaurant in Herndon is still opened. While they say they might reopen at a new location, I would close this thread. To our amazing friends and guests,After 39 great years we have come to the end of our lease at 1992 Chain Bridge Road. Given the pandemic and it's implications on our restaurant we are unfortunately unable to remain open at this time. We want to thank you so much for all of your patronage and support. It has been a pleasure serving you! We are in the process of seeking a fresh new location and hope to open again soon when the climate is more stable. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME SEE US IN HERNDON AT OUR SISTER RESTAURANT, ZEFFIRELLI!
  3. Monday’s have housemate wontons, either in a spicy sauce or as a soup. The spicy beef soup at a three and the house made pot stickers are some of our boots here. The twice cook pork belly with leeks was fantastic last week.
  4. China wok is our go to take out and delivery. Best in the tysons area, but not as good as some others.
  5. I agree with all the choices here. I would add Amoos for kabobs and muru ( Vienna) may not have the spelling right, for Korean.
  6. 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.
  7. Wow it’s been years since I have seen prices this good
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. I think its just a few of the sausages to start. You still need to go to the mothership for Pastrami and Corn Beef
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
