  1. Who else is excited for some Jersey-style pizza? Tweet from @AllPurposeDC leading to this article: "Where to Eat in 2016" by Jed Portman on gardenandgun.com (featuring a paragraph about All Purpose).
  2. DH indulged me, so we headed over to Little Beast for opening night. I’ve been consistently underwhelmed by the restaurants in Chevy Chase, but as a Bakers & Baristas fan (and eternal optimist), I had high hopes this time. AND THEY WERE MET (maybe even exceeded)! Pizza was Neopolitan style but with a slightly thinner crust than I’m accustomed to. Lots of char and no sogginess. We played it safe (pepperoni), so it’ll take some experimentation before I can compare it with my faves. But I can confidently say it’s the best pizza we’ve ever had in walking distance of home (Friendship Heights for the past 20-odd years). Thinner crust turned out to be a plus (no leftovers). We also had a lamb ragu, which was the highlight of the meal, and roasted broccoli with lemon and garlic. Reasonable prices and portions. Nothing was revelatory but everything was very tasty. The space was clean but not sterile (we ate inside — outside looked more popular). Lighting might benefit from some tweaking (bulbs in recessed canisters were too blue — bugged DH more than me — I was facing the incandescent fixtures). Service was friendly, attentive, and thoughtful. Basically, Little Beast looks like it has the makings of a perfect neighborhood restaurant. A comfortable hassle-free place with food at least as good as I could make myself. And a place that’s welcoming to all ages and can handle parties of different sizes. It’ll be a couple of weeks before the cafe hours/menu kick in and I’m eager to check that out as well. Pastries look more interesting than Little Red Fox’s. I think the all-ages thing may be trickier to pull off in a cafe.
  3. Another good option for the Montgomery County crowd that I take the girls to is up off of Shady Grove Road just behind the Home Depot shopping center. Zio's - On Gaither Road. They have very good tasting pizza. It is not New York style and for me to endorse pizza that is not NY style says a lot. The flavor of the dough is very tasty. I was there the other night and enjoyed some pasta with red sauces. The crostini was also good. Seems to be a nice family owned place that you can always get a table at. We went there a few weeks ago after we could not get a table at a steak chain down the street. We got a table immediately.
  4. Often, I silently lurk this community blog (I split this off from the Dinner thread), shaking my head in awe at all the talent we have here. Please do expand on this "time-consuming" method for making cioppino. I know there are many short-cuts taken, but I'm not sure of the baseline, and I suspect others might be interested in hearing and learning as well. I'll give you a start: "Cioppino is a San-Francisco-based, Italian-American seafood stew "¦."
  5. We've seen the slow renovation of El Patio into a pizzeria over the last several months, and after an aborted attempt a few weeks ago (they closed a bit earlier than we anticipated), we carried out a pizza from Crust. They have 14" and 20" pizzas, comparably priced to most local competitors. The space is big--for some reason, I didn't think that El Patio was this large, and so they must have opened up the space quite a bit. There were 5-6 tables occupied at 9 PM on a Friday night, and the openness is nice. I'm not sure about the layout--a long counter where it looks like you could sit and eat a meal is empty, and without seats; a row of chairs by the cash register (for take-out orders, I assume) seems like an afterthought. Service was straightforward, welcoming but not effusive, but then again I was only there for take-out. The servers' interaction with the tables seemed nice. And the pizza: it was good, with a nicely browned, crisped on the bottom, a bit doughy on top, crust. We ordered sausage and artichoke. The sausage was nice; the artichokes a bit off for me--too vinegary, I think that they had come directly from the can/jar, and a water rinse would have been much nicer. The sauce was sweet but not overly so, and the cheese was good. This is NY-style pizza, though many NY-style afficionados would likely take issue. But if judged objectively, I think it stands up pretty well as a solid pizza. With Pizza CS just down the street, so to speak, Matchbox (which some people love, I'm a bit less of a fan) just a few minutes away, and Mamma Lucia down the road, there are suddenly a lot of pizza options in this area just off of the Rockville Pike. As a Neapolitan-style fan, my first choice is pretty clear, but I'd happily go back to Crust.
