  1. There's a cozy little corner store three blocks away from Indigo, reminds me a bit of Little Red Fox. Not as many baked goods, but a robust selection of sandwichs, salads, paninis, and pizzas. The market also includes pantry items, beer and wine, and dairy. Coffees as well. They use a wood-fired oven, and I prefer the pizzas here to Stellina Pizzeria. The ingredients are top notch, the pepperoni spicy, and the tomato sauce assertive. Also featured: ready-to-eat meals vacuum packed and ready for a quick zap. Both their vegetarian lasagna ($11) and their cassoulet ($7) are real
  2. New Laotian restaurant in NoMa. After several visits, I'd rate this place as "ok." First the good parts: Big outdoor space; beautiful dining room; Laotian food is interesting and -- other than Thip Khao and related restaurants -- uncommon around DC; and the crispy rice salad is delicious (even if not as good as the one at Thip Khao). Unfortunately there are many downsides. Service is spotty at best. I've had several meals where we desperately tried to flag down servers, dishes were forgotten, water was never refilled, etc. The cocktails are so-so and often taste quite watered down -- may
  3. Stopped by Sweet Science for a coffee this morning in NoMa, and saw this on the neighboring storefront.
  4. I had lunch at the Eleanor, in the NoMa area under Elevation apartments. I'm nor recommending it, by any means, but it isn't terrible. It's just unremarkable, unless you want to go bowling for some reason. Let me say up front that I hate any waitstaff that doesn't write down an order. I have NEVER received my exact order from someone who just listens to your order and thinks they can remember it well enough to convey to the back of the house. Thus my burger, ordered medium rare with an egg on top and a side of salad, came out medium well with bacon on top and a side of fries. (Note -- the
  5. The Noma Guide to Fermentation, an authors event at the Free Library of Philadephia. The price of the event is $40/ includes book and lecture. Tickets available starting on 9/7. If you are a couple the price is $55/ one book to share.
  6. This Sunday, I will be attending a chocolate tasting event at Bar Clavel in the Remington neighborhood of Baltimore. This seems like something that the members of DR may find interesting. I also learned that same event will be presented at Epista in District on Monday, Aug 13th. I tried finding a link for the DC pop up ,but it is not listed in Eventbrite. Ill need to do a little bit more digging to find the details , or you can go to Espita website and find out more. I imagine they would have some information about the event. The quick glance at the event, attendees will taste pre-Hisp
  7. Indigo is not cheap but it's worth it. Limited seating inside but a great patio for beautiful days like today (not sure what they'll do in cold weather "“ I guess more people will carry out). Very friendly and warm service. Family-owned and "“operated, and you can tell (in a good way). I had lunch here for the third time today and ordered the mango chicken for the second time. The first time I ordered it I didn't realize it was a special. I was disappointed that it wasn't available the second time I visited, but I ordered the butter chicken, which was also delicious. But the mango chicken is
  8. Washingtonian is reporting that Andrew Evans, of Inn at Easton fame and owner of The BBQ Joint in Easton and Pasadena has signed a lease with Union Market. Sounds like the bbq will be counter service and the meat is being smoked at the Pasadena location and brought over to Union Market. Fair warning. December-ish opening. It's starting to get smokey around here.
  9. I didn't see anyone comment about Tim Carman's piece yesterday on Chef Daniel Giusti at Noma. Daniel grew up in DC, went to Langley, and cut his teeth at a young age with the Clyde's Group. Interesting story, even more so since I learned he was the opening chef at Clyde's Gallery Place. Glad Rene Redzepi did not hold that against him!
  10. Wondering if anyone knows whether these food carts will venture over to the NoMa neighborhood? NoMa (which stands for North of Mass. Ave.) is in the vicinity of the New York Metro stop, the Greyhound bus station, and the new ATF headquarters building. My federal agency, with 450+ employees, is moving to NoMa (1st and L Street., N.E.) in November and at the present time lunch options are dismal.
  11. Reported by Tom Sietsema today. Perhaps the name will prove prophetic for more restaurants opening up over here.
  12. My parents, sister, and 4-month-old nephew are coming to town for Columbus Day weekend. We may be able to get a babysitter one night so we can go out for a grown-up meal. For the other meals, can anyone recommend restaurants that would be as delicious as possible but also friendly to a potentially fussy infant? All genres of food and all price ranges will be considered - but we must stick to DC, and the closer to NoMa, the better. Thanks!
  13. After seeing the Post article, I headed over for lunch at the Singer's Significant Meats pop-up today (Sun and Monday lunch only for limited time, unclear how long). I met Doug Singer who was doing FOH and his partner Pete cooking in back. Very friendly gents. Also really good meat - hefty sandwich of thinly sliced melt in your mouth meat with a bit of fat, but not too much on thin sliced toasted rye with a shmear of mustard. Decent pickle with it too. The only odd thing is I ordered pastrami, Doug and I went back and forth a bit to confirm that I did get the pastrami. He swears it was their

  15. I just couldn't let the Virginians have all the fun. Seriously, Jason and I have been craving some social time, and it would be great to meet up with some of our DR neighbors in NoMa, H Street, Atlas District, Trinidad, etc. Anyone up for a get-together sometime soon?
  16. "I'm back!" So says the Timothy Dean poster outside this 3rd and K St NE restaurant. My inner voice responds, "How long you gonna stay?" I'm somewhat resigned that Barrack's Row will attract "more desirable" restaurants than H St NE, which I attribute to the spacious sidewalks that accommodate patio table service. TD Burger has a unique advantage in H Street for having almost as much outdoor seating as it does indoor seating (about 70 seats total). This past Friday night, our large group decided to dine al fresco there. The dining was a little closer to al Fresca, in that the menu "os
  17. Has anyone tried Tynan Coffee and Tea? I met the owners at an ANC alcohol licensing meeting, seem really nice. Haven't hit their NoMa or Columbia Heights locations yet.
  18. I read about this place on Prince of Petworth last month, and was curious about it after reading: It sounds like it actually opened about two weeks ago. We do our grocery shopping at the NoMa Harris Teeter, so are often looking for a place to grab lunch in the area, and decided to try this out today. It's on the lower level of the Loree Grand (where Kitchen on K was supposed to be?). There were only a couple of other tables seated when we were there, so the staff was fairly solicitous (opening the door for us, multiple people checking in on our table, etc). The decor is a bit sparse, bu
  19. I read about this coming a while back on Price of Petworth, and the +1 and I were looking forward to a new lunch place in NoMa since we will frequently package lunch with a grocery trip to Harris Teeter. We enjoy Roti and Potbelly on occasion, but are always up for something different. I believe this just opened on or around January 31, and we visited on February 4, so it's pretty new. You can see the menu here. It's not huge inside, with maybe 5-6 tables and some counter seating if I'm remembering correctly. I assume most of their clientele will be taking food back to their nearby office
