  1. Perfect, thanks! If I leave out the nuts do you think it will be ok? I don't remember nuts in this from my youth.
  2. Does anyone have a good tsimmis recipe? I assume I just boil the carrots and Sweet potatoes and then bake, but I appreciate any tried and true variations. Thanks!
  3. I had the chance to go to both Againn and Birch and Barley in the past few weeks, and it was an interesting comparison. You can see my comments on Againn in its listing, but I left Birch and Barley wanting to go back (while I don't see myself going back to Againn until maybe next winter, if I am looking to fill up on some hearty food). I thought beer-wise, Birch and Barley wins hands down (it really isn't fair to compare). If you are a beer lover, I say try and avoid the crowds and go off hours for an great, wide selection. I like that they do half portions as I can't drink as much as I used
  4. After having my son a little over a year ago I have not had many opportunities to get to many new restaurants this past year or so, but in the past two weeks I have had the chance to try Againn and Birch and Barley. They both were similar, but I found the B&B to be the better of the two. I fount both to be the place to go for rich heavy food and I think both could maybe throw in a few lighter items to balance out the heavy ones. Most of the entrees chosen by my group at Againn fell on the heavy side, even my friend who had a "veggie" pie that they made for her said that it was pretty ric
  5. I went with some friend on Saturday night. It seemed busy when we got there, and was a little quiet by the end. All in all everyone was happy. My friend had a very nice butternut squash soup that had nice spicing. I had a bib salad that I would not order again. It was a half a head of lettuce and a very bland dressing that had no flavor. We had some oysters, which were huge, and pretty good (only $2 each). My friend had the NY Strip (?) steak that was very well cooked (I just recently went to Ray's, which would still be my go-to place if I want steak, but it was very good). I had the Crab
  6. I saw this film when it was at SilverDocs in June. It was very interesting. The "zen" chef was facinating, he is really an interesting character. The film made me want to go home and bake bread, and I know nothing about baking bread.
  7. I can't help with Albany, but here is one for Saratoga: Eartha's Kitchen (518-583-0602). They are in a different location then when I was there, but they have been around for ages (15 plus years) and I always loved the food there when I lived there. As a student I only ate there when my parents visited though. There are alot of not so great restaurants in Saratoga though, beware. Oh, and DO go to the track come next August. It is a blast. Don't eat at any of their overpriced eateries, though breakfast at the track (when they practice the horses) is worth it for the view. We usually eat at t
  8. My husband and I just had a great visit to Montreal. We of course visited the wonderful Schwarz's- it was so good, we went again Monday and got some sandwiches to go. I need to figure out if I can get that smoked meat delivered to my Father back in the states, I think I would win the daughter of the year award if I could. We went to the "house of meat/pork"--Au Pied de Couchon- wow. We had the Au Pied de Couchon salad that my father-in-law loves, and it was a salad of meat (well, pork) and just enough greens to almost be an actual salad. My husband had the boudin tart with smoked foie gras
  9. You are thinking of Kefa Cafe, which has a bit Gelato! sign 963 Bonifant St Silver Spring, MD 20910 (301) 589-9337 there is also Moorenko's, but I have never been: Moorenko's Ice Cream 8030 Georgia Ave Silver Spring,MD 20910 (301) 588-5656
  10. FYI, the Washington Post has an article posted, they are open again... http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...ml?hpid=artslot
  11. FYI, the Newseum's opening has been delayed. It will not open in October as planned, but a new opening date has not been announced yet. I hear the Source may still open in September though.
  12. I was sad to see an article in today's Washington Post that El Polo Rico was raided today: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...7071201963.html to quote from the article: Four members of a family that owns popular chicken restaurants in the Washington area were arrested by federal agents yesterday for knowingly employing illegal immigrants and laundering the money earned from that business, according to immigration officials. I am not sure what to say. On the one hand, it was the best chicken in the area. On the other hand, the money laundering (6 mil), if true, bothers me. I am no
  13. interesting. I went a month or so ago and we were one of two tables, so maybe they don't have enough customers? We were there @ 1:00 on a Friday and I also thought they were closed, but the door was open and they said come on in. I did love that steak salad though, one of the best I have ever had.
  14. I walked by this place yesterday. Has anyone else tried it? it does not bode well that there hasn't been a review or mention of it since November...
