  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 foccia. We ordered the chicken liver pate and sichuan honey butter but due to their delay, they gave us all 6 dips (babaganoush, apple butter, seaweed butter, and mascarpone & jelly). I thought the chicken liver was fantastic. For apps, we ordered SCALLOP CRUDO - crispy okra, curry leaves, chili oil. BEEF TARTARE - cured egg yolk, crab fat mustard, pecorino. The scallops, after swishing around in the sauce, are fantastic. The beef tartare were even better. Mixed with egg yolk and pecorino, it had the texture of almost cooked meat. The combination of ingredients were new to me but the best that I can think of. Finally, we shared the PORK BLADE STEAK vermicelli, nuoc cham, peanut sauce. This is a straight up Vietnamese dish with a different cut of pork. The pork was tender, well seasoned, but fatty and sinewy which made it hard to chew. You can get almost the same dish at 1/3 of the price by going to Eden Center but that's an entirely different atmosphere. So I recommend you try both and see which you like better (just order grilled pork w/ vermicelli at any Vietnamese restaurant for comparison). This place will be a winner, similar to Rose's Luxury. Great, seemingly creative food that's really not, served at hipster prices for those who have disposable income, who rather stay in the city instead of venturing out into the burbs for authentic food. The lighting was awful. The only light source is the fluorescent light in the display kitchen. I also used a iPhone 6....and couldn't hold still while taking the tartare shot.
  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 but Sunday. 202-544-0910.
  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 counter was pleasant and friendly. Today I saw this story about the business from the Post and discovered that yesterday was National Pretzel Day! The article has more details about the bakery and its owner. This is their website: http://thepretzelbakery.com/
  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. 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?
  9. 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 turned into sandwiches; and sides that are mostly salads. It's not listed on the menu, but they apparently will also be offering homemade soups. I didn't sample any food but had a good cup of drip coffee (large--16 oz., I think--for $2.75). The crepes range in price from $7 (various) to $12, for "The Body Builder": Double chicken, two eggs, and double cheese. I neglected to ask what the coffee was, but the packaged coffee they have for sale is Swing's, so I assume that's what they were brewing as well. The refrigerated case was being stocked while I was there. They had yogurt, milk, and cartons of eggs, plus a few other things I don't recall. Their website doesn't have the menu up yet. They're updating Facebook, though. I should give their hours: Monday: 7AM to 2 PM Tuesday - Friday: 7AM to 9PM Saturday: 9AM to 9PM Sunday: 9AM to 5PM
