  1. Junction Bakery and Bistro had it's soft opening this week. It's where Mancini's used to be. They gutted it. I stopped by to get the staff's Friday breakfast. They've gotten real spoiled when I'm in the clinic on Fridays not Dunkin Donuts like my partners The place is cool, super retro looking, you can see into the bakery and watch them work and make delicious baked goods. Seems like people already know about it, it was fairly busy for just being open for 2 days. I got a bunch of stuff - ham and cheese croissant, chocolate croissant, everything croissant, lemon poppy tea cakes, cheddar chive biscuits, some scones, and then I get an Americano for myself. Was a big hit... Everyone loved it. The everything crossaint was a real winner. I had half a cheddar chive biscuit, and that was good. Everything was rich/moist. The Americano was ... watered down (I know, I know ... it has water in it), but it wasn't as strong as Swing's or Stomping Ground or even the new St. Elmo's (what a revamp!). Well, the next hipster thing continues in Del Ray, a full fledged bakery with people with those baking hats. Food is good. Looking forward to trying real breakfast here. -S
  2. I wasn't quite sure where to start the Heidelberg thread- feel free to move it to shopping and cooking, but I wanted to note it is a great place to eat, as well. In the winter Heidelberg is more of a bakery, shop and a deli. They have beautiful breads, pretzels and pastries, they have pies, they do cakes, they have a wide selection of marzipan goodies. They also have chocolates and cheeses and meats. They make sandwiches and etc. In the nicer weather though go for the wurst. If you drive by and see their tent out front that is when to stop by. They grill multiple types of sausages on the grill brautwurst, knackwurst, weisswurst and debreziner, which they serve with kraut on a really nice roll that is appropriately crisp and soft. I particularly like the curried ketchup to put on it. You can get a combo with a pretzel and drink, or with kraut and German potato salad and drink or add to that pretzel and a piece of apple strudel for the ultimate combo. If you can't decide on a sausage no problem they will cut you off a piece of each to sample. The kraut isn't too sour, but has a nice crunch and tanginess to it. The warm German potato salad is really good, the potatoes are tender and there is just the right amount of sauce not to overwhelm the potatoes, but to bind them nicely. The pretzels are wonderful, soft and chewy with a nice shell and just enough coarse salt. The apple strudel has nice cooked apples inside, the pastry is dense, but still light and very flavorful. Really worth a stop. They have tables and chairs outside, some with umbrellas to eat your goodies in good weather. They only have one table and a little counter area inside. Here is their website- it's pretty informative. Heidelberg
  3. I saw on Delleicious that Bakeshop DC is opening in Clarendon in the spring. Also here's the news on Bakeshop DC's website. The website says their cupcakes and cookies are available at Murky's. How are they?
  4. If you live within walking distance of Connecticut Avenue and Albemarle Street, drop to your knees, bow down to the ground, do a medieval chant, and pray to all that's holy that what might come to pass, will come to pass. Right now, the odds are slightly against it happening, but the possibility is definitely there, and for once, Van Ness might be the source of some exciting culinary news, coming our way in the near future. I asked for permission to say more, but was asked not to, so I must honor that request. Cross your fingers ...
  5. An interesting and ambitious new venture which could up DC's bread game. Seylou Bakery & Mill will be milling local grain on-site and baking 100% whole grain breads in a wood-fired oven. Jonathan trained at the San Francisco Baking Institute and Washington State University's Bread Lab. He was also Baker-in-Resident at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Looks like they have abbreviated hours this Wednesday-Friday 1-4pm and then 8am-6pm Saturdays and Sundays. Closed Monday & Tuesdays. Regular hours Wednesday-Friday will be 7am-6pm. Besides bread, they offer daily pastries, coffee and teas. Pizza and seasonal salads will start up in January. Washington Post story
  6. Souk Bakery and Market was scheduled to soft open in the Hello Cupcake Barracks Row space today (via PoPville).
  7. I couldn't find a thread on this deserving shop. On the way home from a successful dentist visit to Arlington - I couldn't resist the simple singage. "Livin' the Pie Life". Took home a small chilled chocolate cream and an apple/cherry right out of the oven. The chocolate had a chocolate crumb crust and the fruit pie had an excellent traditional pie crust. Being of a savory orientation, I also got a bacon and cheese scone. There were also mini quiches that I'll try next time. All were great and worth the price ($$) - and being about 4" in diameter, they were lighter in the calories than getting a whole pie. The chocolate pie scored some serious husband points.
  8. You'll see some familiar faces from Bistrot du Coin here, and also recognize alot of the menu from BdC (and there's the writing of the wines by the glass on the mirror). This place is in a really odd location, though-- in a neighborhood I had no idea existed (and I grew up in DC and used to live in Bethesda). It's off MacArthur, hidden on Sangamore Road in a new shopping strip. Satisfying bistro stuff: mussels, steaks, tartines, etc. The food was good, but the two reasons to venture up here if you don't live nearby are the great second floor patio and the desserts. The brioche with a creme brulee center (and a perfect raspberry macaron) was fantastic. They are definitely still getting their sea legs service-wise, but Patrick Chassagneux (used to be a server at BdC) is the perfect host.
  9. The Happy Tart, a gluten-free pátisserie in Del Ray, is opening a second, much larger location in Falls Church later this year. No word on whether or not the second location will serve entirely gluten-free offerings.
  10. Did we really not have a thread on this place? I just read this on Todd Kliman's June 4th chat: It's always useful to calibrate your palate to your favorite critic's, so if you think this sandwich at Bí¡nh Mi DC Sandwich is perhaps the best sandwich, of any type, in the entire DC area, then you've got your critic.
  11. I was reminded of the goodness of W&M this weekend when a friend suggested it for dinner. I've gone for lunch in the past, and have always been happy I did. It isn't a cheap lunch, but their breads and pastas are top-notch, and should be your focus. For dinner, Cristina and I shared the pasta special of the day, duck confit stuffed pasta (I can't remember the name of the pasta, but it was kind of a fat tubular ravioli) in a sage butter, and the roasted carrot pizza. I've somehow never had a pizza here, but they do it right. Nice chew and char to the crust. They describe it as Neapolitan style, though I think it's a bit more substantial than that (no soupy center). My pizza came with thin slices of carrot, Fresno chile, and cilantro. The base used Point Reyes Toma cheese and a nice, rustic dukkah (that is, larger chunks of nuts, not super-finely processed). Great flavors and textures. Interesting cocktail menu, and a fairly extensive selections of wines by the glass. I didn't ask to see the full wine list, but apparently there is much more to choose from than what's on the main menu.
  12. Oh, my goodness - I don't know why I didn't see this before ... Woodmoor Pastry Shop! That's bringing up some memories - we used to walk through the corridor in the middle of that strangely shaped shopping center, and enter Suburban Trust Bank from the back.
  13. In addition a full suite of typical Taiwanese bakery items, J.J. Bakery in Arcadia (I've only been to that location) also has a limited selection of cooked/hot breakfast/dim sum foods (at least in the morning), making it an even more attractive alternative to Din Tai Fung when the lines are too long. We've had the turnip cakes (no longer crispy on the edges if it's been sitting there a while, but otherwise quite good) and the big meat and vegetable buns (very good. I love giant buns, and the fillings are flavorful, plentiful, and not at all sketchy tasting/feeling). It's great fast food. I've also run in an grabbed bakery items before/after a DTF run many times, and they have always been good, if not particularly memorable. In case it's not obvious, they also serve hot and cold drinks, including boba drinks. The one time I got a boba tea it was perfectly fine.
  14. Have been stopping at the wholesale bakery for Balthazar located in Englewood NJ for 2 days. Wonderful breads plus amazing tarts which might be more like spectacular toppings the likes of which I’ve never had.
  15. Silver Spring is getting an outpost of Nothing Bundt Cakes, a Texas-based national chain founded about 20 years ago in Las Vegas that has grown to about 300 franchises across the country, including locations in Gaithersburg and Vienna, Va.
  16. Damn. Back before we got a Maison Kayser around the corner here in DC, I used to hit the 40th St location when I visited the NY office and always ogled the wares in the window at Lady M a couple doors down the block (this is across from Bryant Park). If those things taste half as good as they look....
  17. Northern Virginia Magazine reports on Liberty Tavern's plan for the old Murky Coffee space: Chef Liam LaCivita will oversee the kitchen. The article also has info on their new restaurant, Lyon Hall.
  18. Anyone else had the pleasure of trying a Maison Kayser in NY or elsewhere? These places are going to kick ass. The baguettes are considered the best in NYC, and pastries -- financiers, eclairs, tarts etc -- are killer. http://maison-kayser-usa.com/
  19. The one on the UWS is usually easier to get in to. It's a couple of blocks north of Zabar's on Broadway. If you aren't crazy about the fries they let you do half and half with onion rings.
  20. Edibles Incredible Desserts to Leave Reston Town Center Location of 15 Years by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Closed as of today.
  21. Finally, the danger to wallet and waist size expands down the coast to our fair city. Eater had reported in late February that an opening was planned for late April or early May. According to their Twitter feed, the Boston location opened in early May, but no updates have mentioned DC since their preview at the annual Sakura Matsuri festival. Can anybody around Georgetown glean an update for us?
