  1. Attending the tribute to Ellis Marsalis next Monday so need some recs.
  2. Anyone heard anything about this Italian restaurant ? Only thing I know is it will open soon and it is a fine dining scene. Lets wait and see if they can keep it up like Nectar.
  3. I wound up running late for my 7:30 curtain last night (tenor Ian Bostridge, program of Schubert Lieder, for the curious ) and left my ticket at home requiring a trip to the box office to get a replacement. So, rather than try Notte Bianchi as planned I risked a meal at the bar at the Roof Terrace Restaurant. The two appetizers, while edible, were among the most haphazardly plated offerings I have ever had set in front of me and very poor value for the prices they are charging. The Roof Terrace year after year tries to present itself as a convenient fine dining destination. It's convenient if it's right before curtain and you have no other options, but that is the best that can be said of it. Baby beet salad arrived as a tangle of frisee next to chunks of quartered beets and a small wedge of nearly flavorless goat cheese. Beets and frisee were underdressed with a lackluster vinaigrette, and sprinkled with a few chives that added color rather than herbal sharpness. $12.00. When I compare it to the beet salad at Corduroy it makes me want to cry. Smoked Salmon with caper mayonnaise Four slices of smoked salmon, baby romaine dressed with not quite enough vinaigrette, and a blob of caper mayonnaise, slapped on a plate. $14.00. I have had better, tastier smoked salmon at Bagel City. The bread was spongy and full of sunflower and flax seeds and the unsalted butter was the right temperature but also flavorless - a theme for the whole meal. I drank a half bottle of Latour Puligny-Montrachet. Total bill $80 including tip. A ripoff, especially with far superior food two blocks away. Edit: Wrong forum. Could someone move this? Thanks.
  4. This has probably been asked many times before, but looking for a place for dinner on a Sunday after an afternoon performance of Hamilton. Hosting a friend who is in town. There will be 4 of us, all "foodies" with virtually no restrictions except I'd like to not totally break the bank (especially after paying for Hamilton!) and my visiting friend is a vegetarian. I was thinking about the Rasika in West End. Shameful, but I've never actually been to Rasika and I thought it would provide a lot of good vegetarian options. But, after reading recent reviews I am worried my friend, who happens to be Indian, will be unimpressed. Thoughts, or other suggestions? Thanks!
  5. Living with young kids in the suburbs, we rarely get to eat out in DC. There are four options for dinner before our 7:30 Hedwig show that interest me the most: Red Hen (at the bar), Little Serow, Bad Saint, and Tail Up Goat (5:30 reservation currently available). We're willing to wait in line up to 30 minutes before Little Serow or Bad Saint open, but not much longer. Tail Up Goat would be the easy pick due to proximity and certainty if we hadn't been there already last year. We went to Little Serow once in 2011 when it was still new. Really itching to try RH and BS but the logistics have always been too tough. Factoring in likely lines on a weeknight, ease of parking, and distance from KC, which one makes the most sense?
  6. We have been enjoying the Young Concert Artists, a concert series held at the Kennedy Center (as well as in NYC) which features up-and-coming classical musicians. Artists are chosen via an international audition and are provided with recitals, educational, and management opportunities. The DC performances are held at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater, usually on a Monday or Tuesday night (when much of the Center is quiet). The artists usually perform 4 or 5 pieces, some solo but often accompanied by piano or violin. Last night featured 19 year old French clarinetist Raphaí«l Sévère (yes, an evening of classical music devoted to the clarinet!). And he was wonderful. Last night he performed: Johannes Brahms - Sonata for clarinet in E-flat major, Op. 120, No. 2 Pierre Boulez - Domaines for solo clarinet Sylvain Picart - Fantasy on Themes by John Williams Igor Stravinsky - L'Histoire du Soldat for clarinet, violin, and piano Francis Poulenc - Sonata for clarinet and piano Next performance is Bulgarian-American violinist Bella Hristova on Tuesday April 28. It's a lovely way to spend an evening at the Kennedy Center.
