  1. Prince of Petworth on the receiving end of another game of telephone regarding rumors on Joe's Stone Crab coming to DC. (The typo in the title of that post and the subsequent comments are comedy gold). If true this is pretty awesome. We've resorted to next day FedEx of a few dozen claws when we get the hankering when stone crabs are in season. With shipping it ends up being about what you would pay at retail, but any time I've found them in this market they have been less than fresh. If there was a place I could plop down at the bar and get a half dozen or do when the urge hits ... sw
  2. Tonight, we headed to Stella Barra to try something different. My wife and I used to secret dine for Lettuce Entertain You, and they hit on a lot of what we used to look for. Greeted quickly, clean restaurant, glasses are clean, no smudges on salt and pepper shakers, waitress greets quickly, checkback after 2 minutes, bathrooms clean, etc. Service is attentive but not pushy or overbearing. Their restaurants are across the board professionally managed. Their philosophy is that this might be the only meal of the year that the customer has out and we want to make it a great experience. This
  3. Only the greatest sandwich shop EVER!! OK, it was the greatest sandwich shop in Evanston, IL when I was in college (and drunk). Fresh bread, great price, and they delivered free until 2:00AM or something. We knew our delivery guy by name, and he'd stop off to pick up beer for us if we asked. If you went to a large school in the Midwest (almost every Big Ten school at least) in the last 15 years or so you probably know JJ's. I literally almost crashed my car on the way back from IKEA when I saw the one in College Park. Our previous closest sighting was in Pittsburgh. Looks like there's one in
  4. In the Healthy Dining topic, khoww mentions Protein Bar: Has anyone been to Protein Bar? How's the food? I saw that there's a Protein Bar coming to Ballston (on Glebe Road near Wilson) so I'm curious about it. One's open in Penn Quarter. Another is coming to 19th & K. It's from Chicago, and according to their website, they have high protein healthy food and drinks. Protein Bar's website is www.theproteinbar.com The first I'd really heard of Protein Bar was on the City Eats blog. Nevin Martell wrote a series of articles describing his "Protein Bar Challenge" in which he decided
  5. A few colleagues and I stopped by the recently opened Cooper's Hawk restaurant in Ashburn for lunch last week. This is a small chain based in the midwest that seems to be undergoing rapid expansion, with a location in Richmond and another opening soon in Reston. Overall the food was quite good, but service could use some work. After the usual background speech about the restaurant, the server let us know that each guest can order two free tastings of any of their wines with their meal - every dish has an accompanying recommended bin number for pairings. There is also a large barrel of a r
  6. Popped into Bar Louie in Gallery Place last night around 9:30... their first night open. Its below the Lucky Strike bowling alley and movie theater. Space is very large, although not quite as big as the Clyde's next door. This'll be a beer & bar food joint. Opening night was not without its kinks, but its opening night. No draught beer was available (CO2 problem) and a few of the bottles weren't either. But, the draught beer list was long and looked promising. Kro, Summer Heat, Paulaner Weiss, and a bunch of others, in addition to the usual standards. Among the less common bottles: Fat Ti
  7. And Hunt Valley at the Hunt Valley Towne Centre. (In general, I'm willing to cut shopping centers some slack for using the spelling "Towne" or "Centre," but not both. <Buzzer goes off!>)
  8. Old Town Pour House opened in Crown a month or two ago. I have had the chance to check it out twice. The Caps won on the first visit, and lost (in overtime) on the second. The space is very well done with a very high ceiling. There is an outside seating area which looks pretty comfortable. Inside, there are big windows to match the high ceilings, some of which open to the outside. There is a small separated "non bar" space with table, but the majority of the space is the "bar" with ample tables and booths and a huge bar. Tons of big TVs, and during the games I have been at, they have a
  9. Not sure if there is another thread somewhere about this place but I couldnt find it so thought I'd offer my two cents. The premise is simple: order pizzas or salads online or via phone, pick up, follow cooking instructions, and eat about 15 min later. The execution wasn't quite that smooth in my lone experience. I chalk most of it up to growing pains as the place gets up & running though, I'd expect it to get better over time. The menu includes probably 10 pre-conceived pizza options as well as a build your own option with a list of 45 potential ingredients. We ordered 3 pizzas from the
  10. After going to the movies yesterday, we ate at Mon Ami Gabi, which it seems, is a branch of the restaurants of Chef Owner Gabino Sotelino (the card says Chicago, Oak Brook, Las Vegas, and Bethesda) I made the reservation thru OpenTable.com without knowing anything about the place other than what I saw on the website because it was right next door to the theater. My wife started with the Steamed Artichoke. It was served with a lemon-mustard vinaigrette. While she said it was good, she did think it was a little undercooked. She then had the Onion Soup Au Gratin and the Butter Lettuce Salad whic
