This is the oldest surviving Synagogue in Washington, DC, having been built in 1876 - its descendent is in Cleveland Park, very close to where Palena was. I'm not even certain which neighborhood the Lillian & Albert Small Jewish Museum resides in, but it has moved more often than the Cape Hatteras Light (really, it has). "The Little D.C. Shul that Could" by Raquel Wildes on tabletmag.com This may not be as "obligatory" as visiting the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, but it's a quick visit, has easier access, and is a whole lot less depressing. I believe the Synagogue itself is temporarily closed, but there are guided tours, as well as sidewalk chats.
Looking for a quiet (ish) spot to have lunch with an old friend in the Penn Quarter/Judiciary Square/Chinatown area. I don't want to break the bank. The only absolute no is Indian food and I'd like to try something new to me. So Proof and Fiola are out on both a checkbook basis and that I've been. Suggestions? Thanks!
Had lunch at Momoyama (231 2nd Street NW) yesterday. I was very pleased with my "Eel Box" ($10.95) bento: a bento-sized unadon (grilled eel over unvinegared rice), six pieces of eel roll, seaweed salad, three pieces of tempura, and green salad with sesame dressing. The eel was tasty, if a little oversauced for my liking on both the donburi and the roll. But everything tasted fresh, and the tempura was well cooked and not greasy. Very good, especially for an eleven-dollar bento. And I like saying "eel box."
