  1. Brohim and I went to Emilie's last night (Friday). We had a 6 p.m. reservation but arrived at 5:30 p.m. They promptly seated us at the counter and gave us the menus but it was a little while before someone came to take our drink orders. The cart menu was a little confusing and we had to have it explained twice. No bread comes with the dip, so you have to order bread (focaccia or sourdough) from the kitchen menu for $9. However, if you order a bread, it comes with your choice of one dip. Each additional dip is $3. In our case, we ordered focaccia - 4 pieces of rather chewy and dense
  2. A friend last night was raving about this place and I couldn't find a thread for it here. It's a weekday-only, lunch-only place. Inconvenient, but maybe worth a trip one workday. DCist covered it last year, couldn't find coverage in wp, etc. Mangialardo & Sons, Inc. 1317 Pennsylvania Ave., SE 202-543-6212 Metro: Potomac Avenue
  3. A friend was raving about this place yesterday. He got lunch there after shopping at the newly reopened Frager's. He got chicken kabob, I think with salad. He thought everything was good and high-quality. Not too expensive. I really should have taken notes. He liked it enough that I'm creating a thread without having tried the place. Perhaps someone else reading this has? It gets high reviews on both Yelp and Google. They deliver through Seamless, Doordash, and Grubhub. It appears that they are closed on Tuesdays but are open for lunch and dinner the rest of the days and post-midnight all
  4. The chef is Howsoon Cham (originally from the Gambia, from what I recall). He previously headed the short-lived Newtown Grill on U Street, and before that a restaurant (can't remember the name) in Dupont that had been BEDUCI (currently Scion), and before that Red Ginger in Georgetwon. I think there was a thread about Red Ginger on here where Charlie Adler touted his skills. I've never eaten at any of his restaurants, so I can't speak to that, but I hope that this does better than the preceeding three.
  5. Yesterday I picked up a few warm pretzels at the newly opened Pretzel Bakery on 15th Street, SE (340 15th Street; cross street: D). I got three for $5. They are otherwise $2 a piece, and 12 for $15, if you want to buy in bulk. The pretzels were quite good, though a little softer and not quite as elongated as my memories of Philadelphia pretzels go. I didn't buy any mustards, since I figured I had those at home. It's a nice little space, just a walk-up stand. It's the next block down from Crepes on the Corner. You can spot the bakery by the red awning outside. The woman working behind the coun
  6. There doesn't seem to be a thread yet on this cute pink cupcake truck. Their website is here. Link to their twitter page with updates on their location is here. Writeup in Washingtonian here. I haven't been in the same neighborhood yet to sample a cupcake. What do folks think of them?
  7. Mi Vecindad, in the old Pacific Cafe space, opened the other night -- just went by with the dog and noticed lunch service today. According to The Hill is Home's "First Bite"* from opening night, it's the menu from La Plaza up at the top of Penn (same owner) with a Cuban twist. It's a block away so I'll have to try it once I can manage to walk more than half a block without melting into a puddle of goo, which is not a pleasant state in which to consume food. *Guess the Post doesn't have this trademarked.
  8. I stopped into the Sweet Lobby one afternoon, because it was such an unassuming storefront -- in the sense of, you almost don't even notice it -- that I had to see what was going on. Turns out a brother and sister team from a francophone country* were peddling, in order of increasing interest to me, delightful-looking cupcakes, colorful and creative macarons, and beautiful, perfect madeleines. Raspberry-rose? Orange and ginger? Green tea pistachio? Yes, please, to all of those. (It's possible I've read too much Proust.) I haven't tried the cupcakes, which nonetheless look lovely -- not the be
  9. I happened upon Lot 38 Espresso Bar yesterday as I looked to kill a little time before a meeting. They weren't open but opened the doors and invited me in for a free coffee drink. They are scheduled to open today but were doing a dry run yesterday afternoon with free drinks to give the neighbors a sense of what they are doing. It is a slick space--lots of black and chrome. They use Illy products. I asked for a decaf Americano. I thought it was quite nice and especially not too bitter which is my usual complaint about Americanos. The owners were friendly and excited to be starting their
  10. The sign for the Park Cafe next to Lincoln Park has disappeared. Mysterious blue accents have been added to the windows and door... I didn't get a close look yesterday, but will investigate this evening. Anyone know what's going on? Has someone finally pulled the plug on this thoroughly disappointing establishment?
  11. After "coming soon" for a long time, this long-awaited creperie quietly opened on Wednesday. They're still not 100% up-to-speed (sandwiches, for instance, are still a couple of days away from appearing), but they're almost there. The place has a rustic elegance to it, with a wooden communal table in the center and shelves lined with homemade preserves and pickles. The menu lists seven savory crepes (plus one weekly special) and nine sweet crepes. Any of the crepes on the regular menu can be made gluten-free. In addition to sandwiches, they have salads; salads and spreads that can be turne
