  1. The Union opened in the that shopping center with Greek Taverna and Aracosia. The menu is quite diverse. They do have outdoor seating (but I don't know if they will serve you outdoors). I have not been. I've just been looking at my options for eating outdoors in McLean.
  2. I wouldn't be surprised if BA is the best restaurant in McLean (I only frequent Palisades), but have you been to the (very small) Fahrenheit for Sichuan? Just had an excellent meal there.
  3. I've never been. Is it accessible from both Maryland and Virginia? Which side is better? What is there to do (with kids)?
  4. Aracosia is coming soon to McLean! It's nice that the Afghan Bistro owners are spreading out. If they do it like the one downtown, they'll actually close the Springfield location for a few days to get the McLean location up and running with family members and quality staff. Afghan Bistro is in Springfield, Bistro Aracosia is in Palisades, and now Aracosia will be in McLean. It's opening at the end of March, and it's going to be at 1381 Beverly Road, where Il Borgo Italian Restaurant once stood. From Northern Virginia Magazine: As the owner of two critically acclai
  5. Every once in awhile I google map restaurants in McLean and this time something new popped up. Chiang Mai Thai Cookhouse does not have a menu on its website. Instead it states: I thought about rushing out last night to try it but my early afternoon Amsterdam falafel sandwich told me to keep burping and not stuff more food down my throat.
  6. While enjoying our dinner at Cafe Tatti, we noticed this new pizzeria across from us, and decided to check it out. I’ll start with the service, which was terrible: We had interminable waits for everything: food delivery, wine refills, water refills We had multiple service errors: wrong pizza, wrong wine We had multiple check errors: wrong charge for the pizza, wrong charge for the wine We had indifferent reactions from the waiter: he offered no apologies, tried to make up for one mistake with another mistake We had indifferent reactions from the manager: he
  7. Cafe Tatti is a charming and quaint French Bistro located in a shopping center near Balducci's in McLean. I called around 2:30pm for a 6:30pm reservation on Monday night, and had no problem securing a table (not that I thought I would). When we arrived, we were seated at a two-top by the front window, a prime location, and the manager explained to me that they have a regular named Phillip, this is his table, and they weren't sure if the table was for him or not so they reserved it, and are glad to see it taken by another Phil. It was a nice, funny story (for which I'm not doing any justice) an
  8. I'm not quite sure how I feel about Pasa Thai, given our takeout meal last night. For apps, we got orders of Crispy Spring Rolls and Pasa Thai Dumplings. The rolls were good, but the amount of "chef special sauce" they give you on a take out order, especially when sharing among 2 (or more) people, wasn't enough. The dumplings were also good, but they are prepared "shumai"-style, which weren't the kind of dumplings I was expecting. So, these were 5 tasty one-bite morsels, and I was anticipating the larger, 2-bite "Chinese-food-style" versions. They also come with a small amount of sauce. The re
  9. Dal Grano is next to the former Bistro Vivant, now Masala. Bland is the key word here. I had fettuccine with seafood white wine sauce. The dish had some nicely cooked shrimp and calamari rings, and some mussels (not in shell). I think it was the mussels that made the dish fishy, otherwise it had little flavor. I also think the pasta is not firm enough.
  10. In the old Bistro Vivant space is a new restaurant called Masala. I haven't been yet. They do buffet for lunch, and have a pretty big dinner menu. The chef is Ram Thapa.
  11. Social Oyster Bar is apparently a new restaurant in McLean. The menu looks somewhat interesting. I'll probably take the kids there tomorrow night to check it out. Anyone else been?
  12. This is an interesting situation for me as moderator, and if we had an existing thread for Boss Hog's (we don't), I'd probably mark that as closed and give Simply Fresh a clean slate. Chef Rana (Rana is her first name) took over Boss Hogs in June, 2015, and changed it to Simply Fresh - both the interior and the patio look *nothing* like I remember Boss Hogs looking like, so unless I'm not remembering correctly, she really gave it a redo. I was driving in McLean, and was planning on going somewhere else, but I saw the sign for Simply Fresh, and it looked brand new to me, almost like some sort
  13. I visited McKeever's yesterday evening and discovered that, unfortunately, they are closing at the end of June. Since I moved out of their neighborhood a few years ago, my vists have been limited to the occasional stop-by to wait out traffic on my way home from work down the GW Parkway, but I think it is still sad to lose yet another neighborhood institution.
  14. The Sweetbites cupcake truck people have opened a bakery/cafe in McLean recently. They serve Illy coffee and had a nice variety of baked goods. The lemon bars, pina colada cupcakes and the double chocolate chip cookies were big hits. They now serve lunch items, but we have not tried them yet.
  15. I forgot to make reservations for tonight .While I have 'free' babysitting, It is between 6:30 and 9 at lee and george mason. where can I have a great dinner and still get back to that location by 9pm? Probably without reservations. I wanted to try SER and Kapanos Taverna but alas, no reservations. Dare I try the bar or is that a disaster waiting to happen?
  16. Surprisingly, Chicken Out has reopened in McLean - in the former Marvelous Market space. Although the paper signage is still the same, this appears to be the only location which leads me to believe that it might have been sold (although that's just a guess). There were balloons up today, and they appeared to be having a great opening.
  17. I've lived in McLean for a little over 3 years now, and I keep forgetting this place exists, even tho I'm a regular visitor to Moby's just next door. Anyway, I finally grabbed a takeout menu, and we gave this place a shot...very pleasantly surprised! The menu notes that the pasta is homemade, and i believe them. We got an order of the Ravioli alls Panna, which came with 6 large raviolis (Maggianos large? No, but certainly large enough and homemade!) in a tasty parmesan and cream sauce. By the taste and texture, I think they're not only homemade, but made that day, too. Anyway, really good.
  18. NOTE: DO NOT LOOK AT THE POLL RESULTS WITHOUT VOTING FIRST; OTHERWISE, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO VOTE. ------ Ok Folks, so Don and I been having some talks about doing an event exclusively for DR's members at Amoo's!! And ill think of a cool menu to put together for that evening and I promise it'll be pocket friendly as this is more designed to show all of you guys who have supported my family's business over the years, some love!! Here are the dates that I have available for you foodies, Sunday March 15, 2014 Sunday March 22, 2014 Sunday March 29, 2014 let us know what works for you guy
  19. Continuing our tour through spectacularly divey, if culinarily mediocre McLean restaurants, the boy and I had breakfast at MFR on Sunday. We ordered basic items and the food was quite good, actually. We each ordered 2 eggs, over easy, and they were perfectly cooked, with nary a botched yolk. The two pancakes we large, plate-sized, striking a good balance between fluff and heft. Accouterments of bacon and sausage were good, with the bacon nicely cooked to personal preference (I like it brittle). The only miss were the homefries that just didn't have anything to it, and weren't prepared with any
  20. I've rather enjoyed my 2 trips to Rocco's. It delivers exactly what you'd expect from a suburban, downtown, dive Italian eatery. It's also quite accommodating to families with small children, in the sense that they and their behavior aren't likely to disrupt what this place is going for. As for the food, it's"¦decent. On my first trip I ordered a plain cheese, but the waitress brought me the wrong pie, so I had a surprising go at their white pizza. I liked it quite a bit, very garlicky, and I would get it again. On my second trip I got the plain pizza, and it was just OK. Actually, the crust
  21. We went to Capri tonight and were pleasantly surprised. The Caesar and green salads were just OK, but the lobster ravioli and cappelini primavera with whole wheat pasta in a very tasty tomato sauce were both outstanding. Service was superb, and the place had a nice warm vibe. Interestingly, it started to fill up around 8:30--just about the time when McLean rolls up the sidewalks.

  24. Dr. Gurney has been my primary-care physician since the 1990s. He has been with me in good times and bad, from unexpectedly performing my colonoscopy (much to my horror), to being the first person to suspect the bad news about Member Number One. He is a caring gentleman, but not at the cost of efficiency - he'll cut right to the heart of any problem you may have, and will not hesitate to refer you out to a specialist if you need one. He participates with numerous insurance plans, and is accepting new patients - I can usually get an appointment with him in a couple of days, but if I was really
