  1. I live in Arlington and hardly ever venture out to DC anymore for my Saturday dining due to the tough parking situation. That and the fact that there are tons of great restaurants in Northern Virginia which is closer to me and easy to park. However, for RW, I wanted to try Bistro Bis so decided to overcome my parking phobia. What a pleasant surprise! You can get free parking at the garage across the street from the restaurant. Wow! How easy and stress-free. So now, I wonder, what other good restaurants in DC also have a good parking situation. I’d be happy to dine at DC restaurants if I knew parking wasn’t a hassle. The only reason I found out about the validated parking at Bistro Bis was because I called up. I guess I can do that for any DC restaurant I’m interested in, but was wondering if you foodies knew of any offhand. Places that have free or cheap parking garage/lot or there is plenty of street parking. I was at BlackSalt (also for RW) and noticed they seemed to have plentiful street parking. Thanks.
  2. Location and Rates for Tonight - Website with Best-Rate Guarantee In response to my request for Hotels at JFK Airport, I had a free hotel from hotels.com worth $207, so I used it to stay in a decent hotel near JFK airport for a next-day flight. This is my final free night with hotels.com, and I will now sever ties with that company, and use hotels' own websites to book rooms, rather than fiddling around with these discount booking services which simply haven't been worth it. My room at the Radisson JFK Airport (Jamaica, Queens) more than served its purpose. At $203, it wasn't cheap, but I needed to use as much of the $207 free room as I could; otherwise, it would be "use it or lose it," so the entire stay only cost me about $4.00! Both the Radisson and the Crowne Plaza are side-by-side, in the middle of a street which was almost completely residential on the other side - I didn't really notice any other hotels in the immediate area (although there are plenty in the vicinity), and these two were most likely built at the same time - although I didn't go inside the Crowne Plaza, they seemed to be almost interchangeable, so if you're looking at moderately upscale hotels near JFK, and you're considering one, then you should also consider the other. My guess is that they're also comparably appointed, but that's only a guess. Note also: both of these hotels are by a busy intersection (which you can see on the Google map above), but my room was perfectly quiet, and road noise was not an issue at all. I was completely zonked by the time I got to the hotel - it was a *long* day - so I went straight to my room, and didn't budge (except to go downstairs for coffee the next morning) until my late checkout time at 1 PM. Note: The kindly lady working breakfast at the hotel restaurant didn't charge me for filling two cups of coffee and taking them up to my room, and I'm not sure that's always the case. The hotel is in something of a working-class neighborhood, but is perfectly safe, and from what I could see, the parking lot was safe as well. Don't hesitate to stay here just because you think Jamaica might be a dicey area - it's perfectly fine for just spending the night. In terms of luxury, you can see the room for yourself (I got a standard King on the 10th floor which was probably their lowest-level room, but it met my needs and then some). Here are a few pictures of the room, along with its silhouette on the door so you can compare it with other rooms on the 10th floor, size-wise. This isn't a strong 3-star hotel, but to rate it only 2 stars seems unduly harsh when the staff was perfectly pleasant, they had a restaurant and a bar, and the room was clean with a nice bed and a good shower. Call this one a "low-level 3-star," which means it's adequate for business travel, and you won't mind staying here at all, but it's not somewhere you'd go out of your way for, or even remember a month later. It was a good call staying here, and if all you seek is a clean, comfortable room the night before your flight, then I can safely recommend the Radisson JFK Airport. At the end of a *very* long day, I treated myself by taking Uber here from West Village, and with 1.2-multiplier surge pricing, it was about $77 - for me, it was worth it because I was absolutely exhausted and I had luggage, but you should consider taking the train here from Manhattan. Free Parking, free WiFi, and free airport shuttle every thirty minutes (and, at least in my case, free coffee).
  3. Great idea for a thread. Good job!! I don't know if this is splitting hairs or whether it's a typo, but Little City Gourmet's web site says they're in Arlington.
  4. I have been looking for an opportunity to get to Athena Pallas ever since I heard that grilled octopus was on the menu. I made it there today, and I was pleasantly surprised. At lunch, the grilled octopus is an appetizer, so I ordered a double, along with a small Greek salad. It was extremely good, and I would return for it again, or take a detour for it, or whatever I need to say to make it clear that this was a dish that deserves significant praise. Nicely grilled, with plenty of char texture and flavor, and with a light lemon and oregano saucing....simply delicious. How best to describe Athena Pallas...? It's not Kapnos or Nostos, in that it is far from trendy or upscale. These are classic Greek dishes prepared simply. Think Taverna Cretekou in Old Town, but at least half a star better. Athena Pallas also appears to enjoy an elderly demographic, with at least two-thirds of a fairly full lunchtime restaurant falling into that category. That may be the case because it's been around for a while, it's not too expensive, its food is very traditional instead of chic, and the noise level is way down. Call it a comfortable -- or comforting -- place, where you'd want to take your parents or grandparents for a nice meal. Check it out here. I know a fellow who is 80-ish, a retired executive from the IT industry with a nice bank account, who eats out almost every day. He can eat anywhere he wants to eat, but his typical haunts are Cafe Renaissance in Vienna, Da Domenico in Tysons and Village Bistro in Rosslyn. I bumped into him today, for the first time in about a year, at Athena Pallas. Neither of us were surprised to find each other in this restaurant.
  5. Fitness Together is a personal training business where clients work one-on-one or in small groups of no more than 3/4 with a personal trainer. Studios are outfitted with state-of-the-art fitness equipment and highly-qualified trainers and, unlike your typical gym, everything is very personalized. FT is a franchise operation and there are FT locations all over the greater DC area. I have been a client of the Bethesda location for the past 18 months and I have been very pleased with my experience. The prices are typical for personal training but can be less expensive if you buy a package in advance that will cover 24 or 48 or more sessions. You are assigned to a specific trainer for each of your appointments and he/she comes to know your strengths/weaknesses and tailors workouts accordingly. I found the studio in Bethesda to be a very pleasant place and the staff to be very friendly and professional. Everyone on the staff is very good, but I want to highlight two: the Manager, Megan Broda, and my favorite trainer, Nick Sawaya. I can't praise these two highly enough. Finally, the building is located at the corner of Wisconsin and Bradley Blvd and there is free validated parking! Fitness Together 6708 Wisconsin Ave, Suite 301 Bethesda, MD 20815 301-656-3904 Laura Belden
