  1. Northern Virginia magazine reported that Cassatt's owner Art Hauptman opened the market portion of Bistro 360 on Oct. 17 in Cafe Assorti's former location. Although Northern Virginia magazine states that "Hauptman hopes to have the restaurant and wine bar of Bistro 360 open late next week," the Bistro 360 website says that the Bistro360 Eatery will open on Nov. 3 and the wine bar and market are now open.
  2. We made a lunch stop at Eataly Los Angeles on Santa Monica Blvd. in the Westfield Century City mall. It compares favorably to the other Eataly locations I have been to (New York and Chicago) if you like that sort of thing - which I do.
  3. A tiny storefront on Georgia Avenue, Fish in the Hood would verge on being one of my favorite new restaurants this year if not for its mysterious hours and a bit of brusque service. The first time I walked over there, at about 12:30 on a Thursday, the place was locked, though the lights were on inside. It was a crapshoot, since I haven't been able to find their hours listed anywhere, either on their "website" or Yelp. Some workers who'd been contracted to fix their sign were out front, and also chagrined since they couldn't get in touch with the manager or any staff. After chatting with them for about 10 minutes, I moved on (and ended up with an excellent roti from Rita's down the street). I got lucky the second time, stopping in at about 6:30 on a Friday night, and it was hopping. The interior is dominated by a glass case featuring 10-12 types of raw filleted and whole fish on ice and a high counter behind which the magic happens. There are two or three tables inside, but they're really there more for waiting than for eating. (In any case, I don't recommend lingering inside unless you relish smelling like a fryolater. The patio outside will be a nice place to eat in good weather.) The lady behind the glass case was impatient to take my order and irritated that I didn't know the ordering protocol and had to keep asking her to repeat herself because I couldn't hear her over the din. I ended up ordering six fried shrimp and one fried fillet of pollack--which she rejected out of hand as not enough so she gave me three. I also ordered the greens, mac and cheese, and potato salad (I needed to sample a quorum!). A little less than ten minutes later, a man with a big smile (proprietor, I think?) called me over to pick up the goods. He says, "Have you ever had my mango sauce before?" No, sir, I haven't. "Well dear, you take that home and have your man open it up, dip that fish in it, and feed it to you. That'll give you the makings of a good night right there." With no man at hand for the experiment, I fed it to myself, and holy mackerel (ha), was I in heaven. The crust--cornmeal batter--was still crackling after a 10-minute walk home, the fish and shrimp were well cooked, and that mango sauce is a dream. A dream. So good that I'm not even embarrassed to admit that a fair amount made its way into my mouth via my finger. Seriously: order extra mango sauce (a fancy place would call it a mango aioli or some such). The tartar sauce is also really, really good, and its served with a couple of pieces of bread that are average but which somehow makes for a pretty good sandwich. The potato salad was pretty good, the mac and cheese was okay, and the greens were pretty eh. Prices are good, and you can also get the fish broiled or take it out raw. Now just post your hours somewhere, folks, and I'll become a regular.
  4. Had the pleasure of visiting our own Poivrot Farci at 8 Hands Farm (website) in Cutchogue, NY last week. Poivrot is butchering, cooking, baking bread and farming at a small, sustainable farm out on the east end of Long Island's north fork. The farm recently built an amazing kitchen for Julien to perform his craft. They also have a food trailer (a food truck on steroids) that will start serving homey meals featuring their chickens, pigs, and sheep. They are also building a cheese-making facility. Local resident Tom Colicchio is a big fan of Poivrot's work. Below is a shot from his walk-in. Very much worth a trip if you are out that way. Beautiful country, filled with farms, vineyards and water.
  5. Happened to be walking by this weekend and saw that Macon is open in the Chevy Chase Arcade building on Connecticut Ave. We had already picked up bagels with the kids so I couldn't do much but pop my head in, but I'll probably get over there for a brunch soon. I can't wait to try the biscuits and bacon gravy with poached eggs and maybe the "spiced watermelon bowl".... Has anyone been yet? When did it open?
  6. I just popped into a small Japanese market just opened up on the corner of 17th and U street. It's a tiny, neat space with dry goods on metro shelving and some refrigerated and frozen items. The man who was working today says they have been open for about a week. Is this the only Japanese market in DC? Hana Market 2000 17th Street NW 202-939-8854
  7. the wine merchant is pretty good too, not that good california wine is hard to find in this neck of the woods, so that you can gather everything you need for a picnic. the coit tower is within walking distance, and you may run into the parrots on your way up telegraph hill, as we did by accident. off the piers in the vicinity you can watch locals haul in illegal baby sharks and throw them back in if they think someone might be watching. the water may not be as pristine as it appears. my wife reminds me not to forget the imperial tea court.
  8. So, yesterday the mister and I were out running errands, and were heading west on Lee Highway after stops at Arrowine and Artisan Confections, feeling a bit peckish and wondering what to do for lunch, when a banner caught my eye: Hot Brats to Go So what could we do but make a quick u-turn and stop in? I got mine plain, without sauerkraut or mustard, on a hard roll. Wonderful. Crispy skin, juicy meat, nutmeg-scented. Fantastic. Picked up some beers I hadn't seen before, since I was there. The place was hopping, too. Nice deli counter with all sorts of meats, and pastries, and other baked goods, and good German beer selection, and wine, and boxed and canned goods. Why does no one mention this place? Or did the sucky Invision search engine fail me again?
  9. I've been meaning to try out Manila Mart since the Tim Carman review in the Post last year, and finally made it there for lunch today. Manila Mart is tucked away in a shopping center just off of Rt 1 a block north of Behnke's, in between the Korean duo of Gah RhaBreakm and Da Rae Won. Manila Mart is a Filipino market, with a few small aisles of shelf goods, plus a tiny produce section and I think some refrigerated cases along the side. In back, however, is a hot food counter with a small kitchen and a handful of tables for diners. A handwritten sign behind the counter lists the regular menu items and daily specials. The counter includes multiple vats of meats in variously colored sauces, a warming case with several types of cooked fishes and pork, pre-portioned noodle dishes, a pile of bbq skewers, and an array of desserts. About half of the desserts were labeled, the rest of the food was unlabeled, but they were happy to explain what each one was. I got a pancit bihon - vermicelli rice noodles with a mild flavor topped with chicken and veggies, $5.50 - and a halo halo for dessert, $5. The halo halo has shaved ice with various beans, chunks of colored jellies, flan, and something that may have been rice based, with evaporated milk poured over and a scoop of ube (purple yam) ice cream on top. The other meat dishes (mostly chicken and pork from what I could tell) would probably have been more adventurous choices in terms of flavor - I'll have to try that next time, along with the cassava pie. They have a facebook page and instagram that note when special dishes are available. It looks like they may also offer Filipino breakfast on Sunday mornings.
  10. A friend and I stopped for a quick look around today, hoping they had dine-in. They do some carryout sandwiches and the place smelled absolutely terrific, but there's no indoor seating. A few bistro tables outside, but it was a tad too chilly to sit on metal chairs on a cloudy afternoon. They advertise fresh bread brought in daily, and there's a selection of wines, gelato, pasta and similar. And the red sauce smells like I'd want to drink a gallon of it.
  11. Co-worker is raving about this place...anybody been? Emphasis on fresh seafood. Website 829 Frederick Rd, Catonsville, MD 21228
  12. EatZi's closed all their locations outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area (Rockville, Houston, Chicago, and Atlanta), all on very short notice. However, they're still going strong in Dallas-Fort Worth, maintaining their four locations there, and planning to open a fifth. From the Wikipedia article: "Following their time in the White House, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura rely on Eatzi's and friends since neither like to cook." Note that the founder, Philip J. Romano, also founded Fuddrucker's (which, according to their website, has "the world's greatest hamburgers") and Romano's Macaroni Grill (which, according to their website, "sources from Italian farms"). To our friends in Houston: If this type of comment about Fuddrucker's and Macaroni Grill offends your sensibilities, I urge you to use Yelp - you'll be happier there; if you don't mind good-natured ribbing and honest criticism, you'll enjoy it here, and we'll be both grateful and better-off for having you with us - give us a chance, and you'll see that we walk the walk). Cheers, Rocks
  13. We ventured through the Chelsea Market on Saturday as it drizzled outside. I bought some food writing pens at Elenise as a present for someone. http://chelseamarket.com/elenisnewyork/ This reminds me of a place that would do well in Old Town. Very expensive cookies, but cute and the buy a blank one with just white icing and decorate it with a pen is a pretty good idea. I am sure they do lots of birthday parties there. Stopped in the Bowery Kitchen Supply and picked up a few things, this was probably one of my favorites in the market. Got some doughnuts from doughnuttery that were good and a sausage and sage roll from the Tuck Shop that was really good. Waited too long to find a restaurant and then things got filled up when a couple of the tours ended, but I saw lots of good looking food. This isn't necessarily a traditional market, it's more like Union Market. Restaurants, prepared foods, some grocery, some kitchen supply, etc. The tours running through it were especially annoying.
  14. Mar 15, 2016 - "Classic Street Food from Maido, now in Ardmore" by Craig LaBan on philly.com Jul 24, 2014 - "Maido! Leaving Narberth for Ardmore; Lapp's Market Moving In" by Cheryl Allison on mainlinemedianews.com
  15. The new market in the north part of Del Ray just opened (a small regional chain, I guess), and I went in this morning to check out the scene. First glance, it's a typical small, yuppie market with a small amount of good looking produce, limited meats, but has the other staples (canned goods, cereal, soups, condiments, baking stuff, etc.), as well as a good amount of fair priced to expensive wine. They have a small beer area, a deli counter, a baked goods counter. It's expensive, but not that crazy ($2.99 for a gallon of milk, but the produce is pretty pricey). The most interesting part to me was the cafe/restaurant/bar area. It's adjacent to the deli, and pretty cool - looks warehousey/loft style with a long bar, seats there, and tables. The menu had ... korean fried chicken made to order, three different types of ramen (I think shoyu, miso, and something else), and then various small plates. How strange! It wasn't lunch time yet, so they weren't serving, but I'm certainly interested in trying it. If there is halfway decent Korean fried chicken and ramen walking distance from my house, I may have to reconsider my feelings about a higher power. Curious to see how it will do, location is in those new apartment buildings on Mt. Vernon, north of Hume but south of San Salvador.
  16. A couple blocks away from the Millenium Hilton and the 9/11 rebuild and memorial is a great market and cafe called the Amish Market. Why the name? No idea. It is really like a small Whole Foods. They have groceries and gourmet items and a huge hot bar, salad bar, dessert and pastry section, wood burning grill that makes pizzas and sandwiches, taco and burrito station, etc, etc. This is a great quick stop for breakfast or lunch, although they are open for dinner too. We grabbed a bunch of stuff off the hot and cold bars after a long long shopping spree at Century 21. Everything was fresh and nicely prepared, they had a great selection of drinks and desserts and a nice little area with tables to sit at. Anyway if you are staying nearby, this is a great little place to know about for a quick stop.
  17. If you miss the rum buns, you won't have to wait much longer. Bethesda Magazine reports that O'Donnell's is opening a market in Rockville.
  18. I have to admit that I have been a fan of Wagshal's for quite some time. While their sandwiches are above average compared to most other"deli's", they have two particular items that I believe to be the best in the area-Whole roasted chickens and their Shrimp Salad. Their chicken come in two sizes, stuffed or unstuffed, and the larger sells for about $17.00.( about 5 lbs) Not inexpensive, but probably the juciest, moistest(if this is a word)well seasoned bird I have yet to find. The shrimp salad is very pricey-$20.00 a pound but made with huge fresh shrimp and swimming quite contently in a mayo-spiced-celery sauce. Add a french baguette and you are in like flynn. One note is that I rarley buy everything in one place. So if I'm getting a chicken from them, I usually go to Chicken out for Mac and cheese, not the greatest, but if I don't want to make Kraft shells and Mac, it will do. The chicken is also quite good at 3:00 in the morning with a shake of salt right out of the refrigerator. Now if only someone can suggest a place for fried chicken, which I have not had in over a year, cause I'm craving some
  19. Just went to Trinacria on N. Paca Street for the first time and came away quite happy. in many ways it's like a smaller A. Litteri, with slightly better hours, and they offer a selection of cookies either prepackaged or by the pound. We got a selection of these cookies and the rainbow cookie was divine, perfect almond flavor with raspberry, moist and delicious, and my companion looooved the amaretti, which had a wonderful italian flavor and a strong hint of cinnamon too (i love amaretti, but found the cinnamon offputting). we tried two breads, a circular asiago bread, that was just ok, and an excellent rosemary foccacia. and the tre funghi ravioli, from the frozen selection, were great--the filling was strongly flavored mushrooms mixed with a creamy cheese, with a good pasta to filling ratio.
  20. Ventured out to Frederick yesterday for brunch at Firestone's, located on the main drag of Market Street. It's gotten a couple quick mentions in the Dining in Frederick thread, but figured I'd expand on it a bit. I was being a temporary teetotaler yesterday so I didn't bother opening the drink menu, but it appears that it has a reputation of being a good bar. The lounge area was quite nice and there was a decent jazz band playing throughout our meal, which was a nice touch. We started off with crab dip, which was served with two small loaves of bread and some carrots and cucumbers. Despite the sherry, the crab dip wasn't too rich and the large amount of cheese made dipping a bit difficult, but it was good. The eggs benedict was a hit and my grandmother, born and raised in New York City on delis, was quite happy with her hot pastrami sandwich. The meat was quite red and lean and she was pleased with it. I decided to spoil myself and get my once-a-year order of biscuits and gravy, which weighed me down (duh! it's biscuits and gravy!) but hit the spot. It probably wasn't the best item to order on the menu, but it caught my eye while I was in the mood. The burgers looked delicious and our waitress also recommended the Frittata, but nobody in our party went with either option. Their website lists a bunch of awards from OpenTable, Frederick Magazine and Wine Spectator. The bottom line is that it's not going to blow you away like Volt, but if you're in downtown Frederick on a whim and wanted a classier meal it wouldn't be a bad choice at all. I'd be interested in going back for an upscale dinner and a night out if I was in the area and the occasion called for it. ------ http://firestonesrestaurant.com/ Firestone's Culinary Tavern 105 North Market Street Frederick, MD 21701 Hours: tues.- sat. 11am-1:30am sun - 10am-1am closed mondays
  21. A visit to the doctor yesterday gave me an excuse to visit my favorite Vietnamese carryout. Now, it's probably not as good as the places in the Eden Center, but Ba Le is cheap, good, and until we moved in August, was a half mile from my house. The have a dozen sandwich varieties, plus soups, noodles, and rice dishes. Bahn mi are $2.50 each, or 5 for $10. Nothing on the rest of the menu is more than $8.25. My standard order is the combination sandwich (headcheese, pate, & ham with plenty of pickled veg, cilantro, and sliced chilis) and an iced coffee, but I have sampled some of the rice and noodle plates on occasion and been favorably impressed. The grilled lemongrass pork sandwich is also very good. Their decor used to be grim, but they have recently spiffed it up with new tile and more tables, and they now accept credit cards. Ba Le Vietnamese Deli 842-A Rockville Pike Rockville, MD 20852 301-294-7808 (It's conveniently located in the same block as the MoCo liquor store, right across from the Wintergreen shopping center)
  22. Kasha Neam sold Kennedy's Natural Foods to a longtime customer, Karen Sherwood, a couple months ago. It's ironic that I'd been going to Kennedy's for well over ten years, and that Kasha's daughter, Elaine, knew my voice when I called, and even what I was going to order: "Tofu Delight, multi grain, no onions, right?" But as many times as I'd been there, we never even knew each other's names, and they had no idea it was me who had been raving about them for so long. But yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Karen (yes, Kennedy's is now open mid-day on Sundays), and here's the scoop: Karen will be keeping the name "Kennedy's Natural Foods" which has been around for decades. She's also opening Nourish Market on Old Dominion Drive in McLean, near the intersection of Spring Hill Road (this is very close to being Great Falls). Nourish Market will (in addition to being a market) feature grab-and-go fare that's made at Kennedy's, so in essence, she'll have a single-kitchen mini-chain in a few more weeks. At some point in the future, "Nourish Market" will be worked into the Kennedy's Natural Foods signage in Falls Church. The sandwiches (I enjoyed a Chicken Salad, multi-grain, no onions) appear to be fairly close to what they were before, with slight variations on the names. Cheers, Rocks [P.S. Out of deference to both Kasha and Karen, I'm retiring the Kasha's Kitchen thread (retired in italic), and beginning this new one.]
  23. That's the salt cod. I worry about what that does to his business, because it probably turns a lot of people off. The fish is actually very fresh-- never had a problem. They supply a lot of restaurants in the area.
