  1. Komi's turned into Happy Gyro for June. It's like a really refined vegetarian diner (think Chicago Diner or the local Fare Well putting on airs). It continuously riffed on (at least my) childhood memories of favorite foods--sure, they're elevated here and fancier, but darn if they're still not comforting and deeply satisfying. There were about 8 dishes of varying sizes, with the main attraction being a choice between a gyro or a cheesesteak. My wife and I picked one of each and split them. Both were delicious and would be perfect replacements for Adams Morgan's post-drinking jumbo slice, but my heart belongs to the gyro because it was the closest thing in the USA I've had to the gyro of my formative years. The mini tacos tasted like--and this is a true compliment--how I remember Taco Bell decades ago. There was also mushroom souvlaki, beet fritters, feta and tomato salad, garlic bread, roasted squash, and strawberry ice cream. Everything was outstanding. (To those who may be curious: as far as I could tell, there wasn't any tofu, seitan, or processed meat substitutes--it was mostly mushrooms or legumes in place of meat.) (EDIT: jca76 kindly explains below that the gyro is tofu-based. I was too busy Snuffles-ing to be bothered to ask.)
  2. Hi all, My lovely girlfriend is turning 30 next month. We have been together for a while now and live together, so this isn't a celebration for someone whom I expect to be in my life for the short-term. The night before her birthday, I want to take her out to a nice dinner. Her favorite food is sushi ("I could eat it every night"), but she is quite an adventurous eater as well. Recently, while at Kinship, when I was discussing the impending hoping of Metier and its likely cost (I guessed around $300 a person), she expressed disdain for such expense. Still, she enjoys being pampered on her birthday, and this is a big one, so I want to take her somewhere special. With that in mind, I'm debating between the below options (none of which any of us have previously been to). Each has pros and cons: Komi: Great, cozy atmosphere, supposedly great food. I've never been, but it seems like it is a bit heavier, with a mix of seafood and fish. Definitely befitting of a special occasion. Price tag may make her uncomfortable. Pineapples & Pearls: We both love Rose's, but no one knows what the menu at P&P will be like. Similar pricing to Komi, but she'll never see the bill. Sushi Taro: She loves sushi, omakase counter is befitting of a special occasion. We loved Sushi Capitol and I worry that Sushi Taro just isn't as good, despite the price tag (anyone been recently?) Fiola Mare: No prix fix, so she may be uncomfortable ordering lots a la carte. Beautiful room, heard wonderful things. Lots of raw and cooked fish that she'll love, plus she likely wouldn't leave as overfull as she would with a tasting menu. Any of these jump out to you? I'm leaning toward Fiola Mare as of now. It's not as "cool" as the others, but it may just be up her alley. I wish they'd have a prix fix menu so she would not have to worry about feeling like she is spending too much (despite my efforts to assuage her of those concerns). Any other picks I'm missing?
