  1. Heading to Charleston in early April for my brother's wedding. Getting in two days early to explore with a reservation one night at Husk. Any must try's for the second night? In terms of exploring the city, I plan on doing Fort Sumter by boat and Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Any other recs?
  2. I recently relocated to South Florida (Boca Raton to be more specific). Haven't had too much time to check out the restaurant scene but early assessment is that the pizza, Italian, and seafood are above par, and for anything else don't even bother (you'd think with this many Jews we could find some decent Chinese food!). I read about this new Kosher spot called Rami's Pita & Grill in Hollywood, FL (1/2 a mile west of 95 on Stirling). On Monday's and Wednesday's they do Lamb Shawarma as a special. First place I can seriously recommend. Right off the spit, fresh hummus, tahini, and Is
  3. We stayed at the Westin Paris - Vendome using Starwood points. Like Joe H said, it's not a great conversion but we were on our honeymoon and wanted to splurge. Bistro Paul Bert is a must for casual dinner.
  4. Had a longer write-up but screwed up the pictures which caused the post to delete. Just got back from Paris...incredible city just tough in 100 degree heat (hottest three days since 2003). Most restaurants don't have AC so keep an open mind. Lunches were quick and on the go. Definitely try Cojean (www.cojean.fr), a local chain there that's sort of like a Pret a Manger with healthier, fresher, more unique options. Two dinner highlights were Ellsworth and Bistro Paul Bert. Ellsworth is a four month old restaurant in the Palais-Royal area, a close walk from the Louvre. The chef is Canadi
  5. Went to Bistro Paul Bert last night for Steak Frites. Incredible meal and great value. Returning tomorrow and will post full write up with pics.
  6. Not sure if this is the right thread. Looking for Santorini and Mykonos restaurant recs. Thanks!
  7. Headed to Paris in late June. Right now I have a few reservations, would love to get feedback/other recs! Hero - http://www.heroparis.com/ Olio Pane Vino - http://parisbymouth.com/olio-pane-vino/ L'Avenue - http://www.avenue-restaurant.com/
  8. Looks like Adam Schop moved back to NYC. He's taking over the kitchen at Miss Lily's and their new East Village offshoot:
  9. Anyone been recently? Always been a fan of the chicken gyros. Haven't been in ages and would love some suggestions.
  10. Spoke to a guy at their Silver Spring location two weeks ago. Confirmed Potomac location.
  11. I'm always on the hunt for good falafel/shawarma in the DC area. Not a huge Amsterdam Falafel fan; prefer Pita Hut in Rockville. I went with a buddy for lunch today to the month old Shawafel in the Atlas District. The address is 1322 H St NE. I had the falafel/shawarma sandwich, which came with lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, pickled turnips, mint, and tahini. Everything is made in house. The sandwich was absolutely incredible and blew all competition out of the water. The space is really well laid out, extremely clean, and Alberto the owner couldn't have been nicer. All meats are spit roasted and
  12. I had the burger at Sei this past Friday. American Kobe with sautéed shitake | tempura bacon | gouda cheese | wasabi horseradish. The tempura bacon was AMAZING. I've had burgers almost everywhere in DC except for Palena and would easily put this burger in my top 5. Top 4 places in no particular order: Sei, Bourbon Steak, Central, and Ray's Hell Burger.
  13. Had dinner at the Alexandria location tonight. Wait was 30 minutes so we decided to eat in the bar area. Started with the carrot hummus which was great. Decided to try the slow roasted duck for my entree. Was one of the worst dishes I've had this year. Tough, salty duck on a bed of overcooked dirty rice. Was very surprised based on everything else I've tried at Rustico. The gf had the spicy shrimp pizza on chickpea crust (gluten allergy) which was pretty good. The shrimp was plain needed some form of seasoning or marinade.
  14. I was in Chicago this past weekend for a wedding. This was my second time back since moving away last October. I tried some new spots and some old haunts with an overall successful weekend. Friday: Hot Doug's for lunch with a buddy who had never been. Line was only 20 minutes long at around 11:45am which for Duckfat Friday's is not bad at all. Hits were the lamb merguez with cumin mayo and a goat cheese I believe, and the sauternes duck sausage with foie gras mousse and fleur de sel. Misses were the ribeye steak sausage with horseradish cream sauce and crispy fried onions and the alligat
