  1. According to the ANC, the new Purple Patch place is going to be Filipino/Australian food (the owners are from those two countries). If this is done well, it could be VERY cool.
  2. I've been watching progress on this place for the last few months; PoP reports today that it is opening this week. Menu looks to be strictly standard American Thai offerings, but here's hoping that it will be tasty and fresh (good pad thai is good pad thai). They will be takeout only until they receive a zoning change to operate as a sit down joint. I'm certainly not expecting Taw-like levels of quality or deliciousness, but if they serve up decent Thai it'll be a hell of a lot more convenient! Good to see more options around my 'hood.
  3. Mola opened tonight, in the former Radius space on Mount Pleasant St (the same building as Purple Patch). I was lucky enough to be invited by owners Karlos Leopold and Erin Lingle to the soft opening last week. Good, adult-tasting cocktails and a nice, short list of Spanish wines. We didn't try the seafood dishes, but the veggie plates had a lot of depth of flavor, the sort of Mediterranean treatment that's more common in California restaurants. Below: fried goat cheese with honey and beet chips, and sherry-glazed artichokes with herb, egg, and pine nut sauce. Their website at http://www.
  4. There are so few good dining options in Mt. Pleasant. Radius is a good neighborhood joint, and the various Salvadoran places can be fun now and again. Still, we are lacking a good diner, or a good local place (think Cork). We could also use an organic grocer in the neighborhood. The DC government renovated a spot for the temporary Mt. Pleasant library at 3162 Mt. Pleasant Street a couple of years ago, and it is really nice. The library is moving back to its permanent home soon, and the great space with lots of windows will be available. If there are any restauranteurs or grocers out
  5. Beau Thai had a 1 hour 30 minute wait for delivery, so we decided to try out the new Zabver Thai (which for now is only take-out, and 3 tables to eat at in take out containers) on Mt. Pleasant street (the old Adam Express location). WOW. First of all the place has had a total makeover - it is still small, and mainly take-out (with three tables) but it looks MUCH better and is WAY cleaner. Also, there is a whole new kitchen in the back. The owners, a husband and wife team, are two of the nicest people I have ever met in a restaurant - seriously. They really are happy to be in the neighborhoo
  6. I remember Tom Sietsema recently saying he's not really up on area pastry chefs - well, I'm not either; but I did want to issue a rave Yes! Yes! Yes! recommendation for Paisley Fig, Lizzy Evelyn's one-woman operation. I've now had the good fortune to sample numerous treats made at the hands of this talented baker: a Semolina Peach Loaf (an individual-sized, eggy, pound-like cake), a Candied Ginger Scone, Salty Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Espresso Shortbread (to kill for), Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons, and an amazing 12-ounce bag of Cinnamon Maple Granola ($6.50) - too good to us
  7. Surprised there is not topic on Heller's. I used to get food from here now and again, and actually just bought a german chocolate cake there two weeks ago for my father's birthday. The cake was very good, and I thought i would start buying my cakes there. But, after having seen this PoP post about extreme mold in their cakes, I think I have sworn them off permanently... I was willing to put up with surly service and mediocre bread to support a local business. But, ew, gross!
  8. Just saw this piece about Lia Cafe about a new Brazilian cafe opening in Mt. Pleasant. Looks like it will have all the typical salgadinhos (Pao de Quijo, Kibbe, etc.) that you would find in a Brazilian corner bakery. Hope they also have acai and juices, like a real Rio juice bar. No matter what, I think I will be here a lot. It's a bit sad for me, though. I had an idea to open a place like Each Peach Market, and then someone beat me to it, and my next idea was to open something like this, and I've been beat to it again!
  9. "Death of an Urban Legend Gives Birth to a New Taco Haven in DC" by George Gonzalez on dclatina.com I have not been yet, but I have been to the old "restaurant' where you would ring the doorbell and they would throw the key down and it was some of the best Mexican food I have had in the region. This could be a very exciting place if the cooking is at the same level. ETA: I can't find a menu on-line, but the Yelp reviews reference pig's head tacos, huitlacoche, tacos al pastor, and mole tamales.
  10. Shades of Bangkok Golden and Baan Thai, this place is a neighborhood gem and deserves more attention. It's run by a Lao family -- I believe that the food is cooked by the aunt and uncle of the super-nice woman who's usually at the front counter -- and when it opened a few months ago, it served predominantly Thai food with only a small section of the menu devoted to Lao dishes. They didn't expect there to be much demand for Lao food, and apparently for a while before they opened they were considering not having it on the menu at all. A funny thing happened, though: people kept ordering from
  11. Flying Fish Coffee and Tea is now open (and has been for a few weeks in Mt Pleasant). It's excellent- very friendly, straightforward and good coffee and espresso. Haven't tried the teas just yet. Their iced coffee is terrific. Fantastic addition to the street . Counter Culture beans, they have the usual drip, pour over and mixed drinks. Worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood.
  12. If you've driven north-south on 16th Street you've seen them, and if you've driven east-west on Columbia Road you've seen them (at mid-day on Sundays, perhaps for longer than you'd care to). These are the three formidable churches in the Mount Pleasant - Columbia Heights - Adams Morgan neighborhoods - at least the ones prominently visible from 16th Street - and along with numerous other items of architectural interest in the immediate area (e.g., The Temple of the Scottish Rite (also known as "The House of the Temple") on 16th and S Street, the Ecuadorian Embassy on 15th and Euclid Street, t
  13. I stopped by Habit today for a Flat White ($3.80) after having brunch at Purple Patch, and was very impressed with the craft involved in making my coffee. If you haven't been, Habit is a quaint little coffee shop which also offers several beers on tap, and is a huge benefit to the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. Both Drew and his Barista warned me that neither the Flat White nor the Macchiato would travel well - I both knew this, and appreciated the warning. It was presented to me in a to-go cup, but was made with as much love as if I'd ordered it to drink inside (with the little frothed-mil
  14. Last place I ate? Adams Express on Mount Pleasant Street. Three page menu: Chinese, sushi and Korean. A tasty little serving of Bi Bim Bap that was not what you'd enjoy at Yechon but did not involve a 40-minute car trip. Even better: some allegedly octopus-oriented dish (I think they actually used squid) involving onion, garlic, cabbage and copious garlic and peppers that almost smells like rotting fish when you get it but -- like certain cheeses and fermented fish condiments -- tastes nasty good once you shovel it into your mouth. Almost as good for lunch three days later and it has the added
  15. I don't pretend to the cocktail connoisseur status that many here have achieved, but I do enjoy a comfortable room and enthusiastic mixology, particularly if it's provided by a pair of frighteningly attractive bartenders. We finished off the fall, pumpkin-spiced cocktails the other night, went through a good bit of rye (which we all agreed is officially the hippest liquor around these days) and sampled the barrel-aged concoctions. Unsurprisingly, memories are a little blurred, but one strong impression is that Last Exit -- a semi-autonomous province of Tonic -- is under-patronized. I don't thi
  16. Looking for a bartender with beer wine and craft cocktail experience. Also able to manage others 5 nights a week. If interested email me at matt@mattandlenka.com
  17. That was fast. This was just announced on the Mt. P listserv. Could be interesting if done right. A new restaurant, called Goodall's Bistro, will be opening in Mt Pleasant. This eatery will take over the commercial spaces currently known as Tonic and Last Exit, at 3155 Mt Pleasant Street. Tonic and Last Exit will be closing in early June, giving way to this new venture in organic, locally sourced cuisine. We are hoping to open later this summer, with an estimated opening date in late August, or early September. Will Warren, who is the founder of Goodall's Bistro, has lived in Mt Pleasant for
  18. On a separate topic (keeping with the late night options in Mt. Pleasant theme), Raven Grill was named by Esquire Magazine as one of the best bars in America, which I find absolutely hilarious.
  19. A number of local residents have worked to try to bring some evening food trucks to the neighborhood. So far Fojol Bros, PORC, Pleasant Pops, and DC Empanadas have confirmed. Even if it is raining Fojol and Pleasant Pops will be there. Please come out and show that our neighborhood wants more, better food! Thursday, April 26th, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Around Lamont Park We have some of DC's favorite trucks rolling up to cater to our foodie wishes and mobile-dinner dreams! Bring dinner home for your family, housemates, partner or pets! Or stay and eat al fresco and follow up with a beverage at
