  1. I had a chance to swing by Family Meal this past weekend for lunch. I was surprised to find it in a pretty industrial part of town and it's essentially a shiny glass island of a building on a huge blacktop so it's easily found if you're not familiar with Frederick. Even though the place is pretty expansive, there was a constant flow of traffic the whole time I was there. The lunch menu is littered with a lot of familiar American classics like deviled eggs, fried chicken, burgers and shakes. But, if you're looking for something a little more interesting, you can also find crispy pig ears and du
  2. okay, i feel like an idiot for asking the obvious and i've looked through the forums to see if I could figure it out but i honestly don't know what you mean by that. help!
  3. I finally got back to Toki Underground. I've been trying to go back for a return visit for a month now but the line and wait were always a bit much. Went back this past Sunday and luckily got there a littler earlier than opening since the line had already started forming about 10-15 minutes before 5p. Like most everyone else, I enjoyed the ramen (just the classic) especially the egg and what seemed like a nice wrap of grape leaves in mine. What I wanted to mention was that I got their Braised Beef Shank with Coconut Risotto too which I found to be just as appealing. The beef shank had a ni
  4. I went to H &pizza a couple of times when it first opened and enjoyed my experience. The space is simple but pleasing and I like the experience of watching the pizza made in front of you. It isn't neapolitan but doesn't have to be. I agree about the Farmer's Daughter and I tried the Maverick (Classic Tomato, Housemade Mozzarella, Pepperoni, Hot Sausage, Smoked Bacon, Soppressata, Parmesan Reggiano, Oregano Oil) which surprisingly had less kick than the Farmer's Daughter but still a good pizza. The only thing I wasn't particularly fond of was the dessert pizza. Just needed to work out
  5. Had never heard of Earl's until recently. Went there for lunch yesterday and while I'm not a big sandwich guy, this place is great. The fries weren't great but the gumbo was hearty (yet not spicy) enough and Earl's French Dip, while not the classic kind I was looking for, was pretty good. How have I not heard of this place before?
  6. Oby Lee is a newly opened coffee house/wine bar in Arlington. The owner used to have the same type of shop on the Delaware shore but moved it all to Arlington. They have their own coffee and roast on the premises and eventually hope to put the roaster right on the dining area floor. Great lattes.
  7. One of the more pleasant dining experiences, I've had in a long time. The space is simple, clean and serene which is a great reflection of the food. I went early so it wasn't so crowded but I'm guessing that this place will be consistently packed. If you had to try one dish, get the grilled Mero with miso. It's sea bass that has a nice char on the outside but comes out tasting smooth and creamy. My full post is below; Izakaya Seki
  8. Chestertown I used to live in Chestertown and went back there this past weekend to visit some old haunts. The Bay Wolf Restaurant in Rock Hall certainly has seen better days but still puts out a mean crab cake and Maryland Crab Soup. There's a relatively new place called the Fish Whistle on riverfront in Chestertown. It's where the Old Wharf Inn used to be and while we only had a few drinks there, it looks pretty promising. Waterman's still one of my favorite places in the world. If you catch it on a nice breezy summer day, it's amazing. The crabs were great and their other offerings aren't
  9. I'm new to the forums and I had to search for this thread (apologies for resurrecting!). I'm just curious why there isn't more talk about Maple Ave in here. It's definitely one of the better food experiences I've had since moving back to DC.
  10. I took the trip out there and I thought it was pretty good. It's a bit far from....well...anything but worth it. Here's my post.
