  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. So...based on this review it sound like Oval Room is deserving of its own thread. Anybody besides Waitman and Mrs. B been since Chef Secich took the helm?
  3. Stan's Restaurant is in the MacPherson Square area, and is a worthy addition to the Dining Guide. A friend and I both tucked into a club sandwich, which thanks to Mario Batali in Lucky Peach a few years ago, I usually order at my first time in a restaurant because, as he says, "the club sandwich is the most interesting, most telling dish about how hard the kitchen is trying." And so it would be at my first visit to Stan's.... The club sandwich here did not disappoint. The combination of ingredients hit the spot. Filled to the edges of the four triangles, the lettuce was fresh, the bacon w
  4. Some news we just posted on the CP blog about Jaleo executive chef JohnPaul Damato. It's really about Damato's new restaurant, Mio, so I don't know if this deserves a new topic. Rocks?
  5. Walking by the Loews Madison at 15th & M earlier today, I noticed big signs in the windows announcing that Jose Garces is bringing Argentinian food to DC. No name or opening date were given. I hadn't heard anything about this previously. We are big fans of his Spanish restaurant, Amada, in Philadelphia, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
  6. It's a rather open looking yellow cart. I'm not sure how it's going to handle the winter weather. There are two food options - bulgogi and chicken teriyaki. Both are made on the spot in woks. All choices come on rice with a side of iceberg lettuce with a soy sauce-based dressing and kimchee. You can also ask for sriracha if you want. The bulgogi was decent - not anything spectacular, but compared to a lot of what I've had within DC pretty good and a good deal at $6.75. The kimchee wasn't too fermented, so the cabbage was still light and crisp. I'm not sure if that will change the longer t
  7. Anyone been? Website is still under construction, but it looks like they've been up and running since January 16. The presser they have on the front window described the cuisine as Med-Italian influenced with house made pastas, charcuterie, and the like. I took a glance at both the lunch and dinner menus and they looked very promising. Lunch prices are $10-18 and includes focaccia's, pastas, salads, and a couple lower priced entrees, while the dinner prices creep into the mid-$20s.
  8. Did a search here and on google but did not find anything. My wife just informed me that we are meeting friends here on Saturday night - anyone been? Suggestions or should I use my power of veto.
  9. Grist Mill will be opening in early January on 14th Street NW (between H and I), and will feature the return of Chris Willis. Although it's in the Hilton Garden Inn (not traditionally known as a dining Mecca), Grist Mill will be a chef-driven restaurant featuring comfort food (think: Beef Stroganoff, Mac and Cheese, etc.), and entrees in the $15-20 range. The focus will be on fresh ingredients, affordability, and simplicity, and the beverage program will emphasize local and regional beer and wine offerings (many of the hotel's guests will be dining here, and they're going to want a sense of lo
  10. Looking for someplace convenient and inexpensive, we stumbled upon DC Thai not far from the White House. The restaurant is about 3 years old, and is on the 2nd floor of a street front access. Walking into the place, there was a mild odor of day-old seafood and the tables seemed to have a glaze of slightly sticky sediment... Nonetheless, this was pretty decent fare, and at a price that belies the neighborhood. Happy hour deals are great, with most appetizers at $3 or $5, and all wines and beers at $5. I had the "Capital Hill" which is stir fried beef with fried basil on top. Save for one t
  11. I tried the newly-opened Catch 15. The menu looked pretty unfocused, but it is close to a friend's office and takes reservations, so we figured we'd give it a try. It was profoundly mediocre. We sampled about 10 dishes and all were a solid "eh." I wouldn't ordinarily even post, but because it's new, I figured that I'd pass along word: don't bother.
  12. First I should mention that on my first visit to a restaurant, I tend to go along with whatever they suggest, rather than requesting something else (another table, etc.), and evaluate the place based on the default experience they deliver. If it's bad enough I will tell them, and walk out and eat somewhere else. Tuscano West is one of those downtown restaurants (usually Italian) that I've walked by hundreds of times, but never really thought to try. You know -- once you've endured the disappointment of ballyhooed places like I Ricci, why bother? Wait until you get to New York, Boston's North
  13. Today kicks of a new partnership between food incubator Union Kitchen and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Various Union Kitchen members will have the opportunity to run NMWA's Mezzanine Cafe. First up is DS Deli (Dirty South Deli) providing sandwiches, soups, salads, and sides, with Blind Dog Cafe providing baked goods. DS Deli Menu
  14. For an office holiday party, is that price point workable?There are plenty of places nearby, but most are closer to the $50pp-range. I'll take any and all ideas for a lower cost venue, and any input on holiday parties in that area. Location is to be walkable from between 14th/15th and L. She's going to see what price point Old Ebbitt comes in, and probably check on: 14K Siroc Catch 15 Lincoln PJ Clarke's Mio? Zentan? Thanks!
  15. Just had lunch at Cafe 15. The Wild Mushroom and Onion Tart Appetizer is out of this world. A very thin pastry crust, a thin layer of what may be creme fraiche, bits of possibly pancetta sauteed onions and mushrooms. A perfect appetizer. If you're looking for a quietly elegant lunch, this is the place to go. -Ed Szrom
  16. Just today a co-worker told me he went to Georgia Brown's this weekend and enjoyed it greatly...I recall reading recently that there has been a chef change, but haven't heard that anyone has gone there until today.
