  1. Rocklands is opening a new location in Wintergreen Plaza on Rockville Pike. Any reason for me to get excited about this, or should we continue to get our 'cue from Urban? The only Rocklands we're tried was the Glover Park location and that was at least 7-8 years ago. I remember nothing about the meat, but their corn salad was pretty good. The new Rocklands would be about 3 minutes from our house, rather than a trek down the Pike.
  2. I had lunch at the Eleanor, in the NoMa area under Elevation apartments. I'm nor recommending it, by any means, but it isn't terrible. It's just unremarkable, unless you want to go bowling for some reason. Let me say up front that I hate any waitstaff that doesn't write down an order. I have NEVER received my exact order from someone who just listens to your order and thinks they can remember it well enough to convey to the back of the house. Thus my burger, ordered medium rare with an egg on top and a side of salad, came out medium well with bacon on top and a side of fries. (Note -- the
  3. I guess I'm the last person on Earth not to know that FDB Eatery is now open under the same ownership as what used to be Frozen Dairy Bar & Boardwalk Pizza, and before that, Frozen Dairy Bar. (The original owner (Ray Fletcher) and the original location of Frozen Dairy Bar are both long gone - Joe H and I may be the only two people left in DC who fondly reminisce over the old building and the three original vintage-1946 Electro-Freeze machines.) <--- This really wasn't that long ago. Anyway, I walked in, and there was a handwritten sign saying that today, they were feat
  4. "Rhodeside Grill To Reopen with Renovated Bar, New Menu to Follow" by Rachel Hatzipanagos in the Clarendon-Courthouse-Rosslyn Patch Small Business Spotlight.
  5. Al Ha'esh, translates to on the fire or on the charcoal. It is a nice space carved out of Kosher Mart, which I believe is now called Motti's. The space was known for generations as Katz's. It has its own separate entrance from the supermarket, and is run as a standalone restaurant, although it looks like the kitchen may be shared with Motti's. I have always said that a restaurant cannot survive solely because it is Kosher, it must also have good food. This space may have figure it out. I went here for lunch expecting some good grilled meats, Israeli salads, and some good bread.
  6. Happy to report that Pho Binh's location in the Heights offers "The Original" banh mi (off menu, but advertised on signs around the restaurant & on the cash register), which is essentially a cold-cut and paté sandwich. Grabbed one the other day for lunch. You're going to have a hard time finding a better way of spending $5.50 for lunch elsewhere in the city. Fantastic on its own, the flavors popped that much more with an easy shake of fish sauce and a thin line of Sriracha. I can also vouch for the lemongrass beef banh mi and the pork/spring roll bun. I am slightly embarrassed tha
  7. Chef Spike Gjerde has opened his long awaited farm-to-table restaurant in Clipper Mill. The wife and I went there last night and were shocked at the full dining room, given the restaurant's out-of-the-way location. No matter though, we had made reservations and were seated promptly in the loft overlooking the dining room. The renovation to the building is stunning. The exposed brick walls and recycled old-growth lumber that were used are dramatically illuminated, looking both elegant and cozy at the same time. A wood burning oven is the center piece of the open kitchen, and most of the food o
  8. This is kind of exciting: ARLNow is reporting that paperwork has been filed that shows Four Sisters Grill will be taking over the space last occupied by Fatshorty's.
  9. Cafe Kimchi has closed. The space is now open under (I believe) different ownership with a new name and prettier look. The new restaurant is Torai, which serves Korean and Japanese food. Yelp link (obligatory "Sorry, Don.") Someone I know who lives nearby told me about the change and said that the food is quite good and a step up from Cafe Kimchi. I have not been in to eat here yet and, for that matter, only got food at Cafe Kimchi once. I forget what it was but it wasn't something that traveled too well. Given the small space, takeout probably remains the best option here, though the
  10. Coincidentally, I got a flyer today advertising the grand opening of Oh Mama Grill on Rollins Ave. (Rockville). I think it is where there is or was a kosher market and the first version of Moti's (now al-Ha'esh). Looks like they have a similar menu to al-Ha'esh.
  11. The still-in-progress dining area at the front of Lezzet Market (on Nelson St. in Rockville, just down the hill from Rt 28 at I-270) will evidently be a branch of Balkan Grill, and not Simit & Kabob as previously surmised. I'm told there will be Turkish kebabs though. The interior reconfiguration is complete, a few tables are in, the kitchen is equipped. Latest rumored opening date is "this Friday, insha'Allah".
  12. Anybody have information about the new management team and renovations underway at Kenny's? Additional context from a Craigslist ad: "KENNYS SMOKE HOUSE is currently under new ownership is undergoing complete renovations including menu changes to better serve our community with authenticate quality BBQ and smoked meats. We are planning to relaunch an entirely new experience and look before July 4th with redesigned interior\exterior, menu enhancements, beer garden and craft beers. Must be able to start mid June."
  13. Senor Canales's Tortilla Grill and Cafe is not only a tiny jewel on the Hill, but one of DC's best hole in the wall secrets! The Canales family is one of the major players at Eastern Market owning three different stalls: Canales Deli, the stand with the fresh pasta, and Canales Meats. Several years ago the Senor of deli fame opened up a tiny eat in/take out store front serving El Salvadoran/Mexican food directly across the street from the Market. It was an immediate success, with lines stretching out the door. But one shouldn't been surprised when the kitchen staff was ordered to make the f
  14. I’ve been to a few outposts of Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill, a local-ish chain, which has 16 locations all over southern California and, oddly enough, one non-CA location in Springfield, VA. It’s a reliable and reliably nice place for more-than-decent BBQ, good salads, and solid service. I know that sounds like I’m damning it with faint praise, but I’ve actually been quite a few times because it’s such a general people-pleaser. I like the tri tip in all its forms – entrée, sandwich, salad – it’s always tender with lots of beefy flavor (similar to Buckhorn Grill in northern CA). The peanut slaw,
  15. This is a cute little place that opened last fall. My husband and I have stopped in for lunch several times (they have lunch specials), and have been very pleased with the experience. We've tried a variety of dishes and all have been excellent. Most recently, my husband had the Sushi special and I had Tuna Tataki. Everything was very fresh and tasty. They serve beer and wine. The space is bright, modern and attractive.
  16. This is the original location of the Old Hickory Grille (I understand that there are several more now, but I've not been to any of them) and has been here for years. It has become a standby when we are in the mood for a steak salad or roast chicken. The place has expanded over the years but still maintains its original flavor. It has a definite Cajun slant, what with fried oysters and oyster po'boys, Cajun spring rolls, etc., but it is still best to stick to the tried and true. The kitchen/grill is open and you can watch as they prepare your food. The roast chicken is excellent, marinated fo
  17. In my efforts to eat lunch across the 'burbs of NoVA, I had lunch today w/ a friend at Walker's Grille, which is in an odd location behind Inova Alexandria. There's plenty of parking, a built in clientele w/ the hospital & doctors offices, I think it was about 3/4 filled. The space is attractive enough, reminiscent of an office building, a little noisy, & has an outdoor patio that might be nice, when the weather is warmer. We both got sandwiches, I was craving a club, (which is why I tried this place), so, turkey club w/ bacon & cheddar on wheat toast- large, a little dry, &
  18. I had a lunch meeting in Clifton today, and I suggested Trummer's on Main....my lunch partner countered with Main Street Pub. I acceded. Not a bad choice. If there was a poster for downtown Clifton -- and there probably is -- this is the place that would grace it. The front of the house is the Clifton General Store, with carry-out sandwich and bakery items, plus quite a bit of penny candy. And T-shirts. The back of the house is where the so-called Pub exists, with 10-12 tables and a nice little Pub menu, plus a spare but nice variety of libations. For lunch today, I enjoyed a Chef Salad of
  19. Who have you stolen, Ramparts? You’ve been a neighborhood regular in the Fairlington section of Alexandria for over 30 years. Four years ago, my first few visits were limited to your sports bar, a smoky, loud, pickup scene, separated from your restaurant by a series of heavy double doors. The full menu was available on the bar side, with Jack Daniels featuring a little too prominently on the description of several plated offerings. I’d dabbled with your choices, a hamburger here, a salad there. My samplings revealed nothing noteworthy, with the exception of your signature hot peas ($5) ap
  20. I'm going to post some reviews based on my recent trip to LA and Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. In response to Xochitl10, the only good meal I've had in Riverside (and I've had many there) is at El Corral for Mexican food. It's my great aunt's favorite place, so when I'm visiting her I end up there a ton, and I love it, particularly for breakfast. They have posole and menudo on the weekends.
  21. Downtown Takoma Park's dining options continued to expand with the opening a week ago of Takoma Bistro, operated by the Bread and Chocolate people. Taking over the ill fated Everyday Gourmet, with some art and a little remodeling they've transformed the space into a warm and inviting cafe that also has outside seating, open seven days a week for three meals a day. a beer and wine license is expected in about a week. Right now the place opens early, at 6:30 well ahead of competitors like Capital City Cheesecake (7:30, weekdays) and Marks Kitchen (9:00, weekdays). The breakfast menu includes eg
  22. Website 240-439-4010 7810 Wormans Mill Rd. Frederick, MD 21701 This is a nice bar and grill up in northern Frederick, right across from the Wegmans. The food here is what I would categorize as 'above average but not worth going much out of your way for', but the beer selection here is one of the better ones in town. Most notably, the beer selection is constantly rotating. Usually there will be one or two craft brewers from the area taking up 4-6 taps each, as well as a decent staple selection. Troegs, Dogfish, Duclaw, Flying Dog, Victory, and Heavy Seas are all locals that frequently appe
  23. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...7052300674.html Anybody been there? Heather? This is in your neck o' the woods.
  24. Mom and I were by Union Square checking out the holiday market which was really quite cool and needed to eat before our show. Mesa Grill was about a block or two away and I knew we could get something at the bar and then catch a cab to our show in the right amount of time. Mom was tired of walking and wanted a glass of wine so it just all worked out to be a good place to go. We just sat at the bar and service there was really good, very nice bartender, I liked my peach margarita, fresh ingredients, not overly sweet and just refreshing. We ordered the blue pancake with duck barbecue, bison ste
