  2. These are questions I will field when I speak to one of the principals behind the group that orchestrated this foodhall. Is there anything our members want to know about Urbanspace? Please post your questions here!!

    Food Halls

    no bueno. This place you speak of wouldn’t be located in Maryland by chance would it?
  4. I have received word that Lady M will be opening in the Taste of Urbanspace Food Hall, tomorrow. It is times like this, I wish there was a bullet train directly into Tysons Galleria.

    Baby Wale is open on NYE. No cover, and there will be specials on deck. I reached out and was told that the loft has been reserved but the the main floor was available to the public. I think this is where I will land when the clock strikes Midnight. I think I will make it a progressive evening, and would love to make several stops. I would prefer not to commit to ticketed events on account I would have to hang at that location til the ball drop, otherwise keep the suggestions coming. What are some of your traditions for ringing in the New Year?

  7. One of the three bears, Joe Flamm. He is the executive chef at Spiaggia in Chicago. Winner of season 15. I really wanted Chef Chris to win. His current location is in Brooklyn, but he has roots in Philly and visits Lancaster County often. It would have been nice to get a little bit of that Top Chef action here in Amish Country.
  8. I enjoy the Top Chef franchise. I live tweeted the season opener. It was gobs of fun, and I think I will be doing it often. Chef Adejpong shows promise, but I am rooting for #teamnini. Who will be Top Chef?

    New Year's Eve 2018 Dining and Events

    I am thinking of spending NYE in the District😍 I know it happens to be crowned amateur night's out by industry folk, but honestly I don't give a hoot, and want to know where the most festive spot will be? Help!!!!
  11. Carlie Steiner Is Making the World More Fun to Drink In , Alex Beggs for Healthyish 12-7-18 I just devoured this entire article. I read every word, and when I was finished, I read it again. The parts I miss most about working in the District are the co workers that became family, and the sense of being a part of something special. I totally believe that if you take care of your employees, they will in turn take care of your guests and represent their place of employment with honor and pride. I do not know, or have dined at Hitmisu, but you can be sure I will make a trip to congratulate Carlie personally for setting the bar. We are family, Kat

  13. A Taste of Urbanspace is off to soft start with 5 concepts ranging from pizza, to Southern style Biscuits, ice cream , Japanese comfort food, to Lao cuisine. This is a starting point, with the plan to open more stalls. I have been actively following all stalls on the INSTA, and I can say I have rarely seen so much love and excitement for the opening of a food hall. Mclean holds a special place in my life on account it was the first place I arrived to back in 1976, when my parents made the maiden voyage to the US from Laos. I like the motley crew of different cuisines that are being offered , and look forward to visiting each one.
