  1. Komi's turned into Happy Gyro for June. It's like a really refined vegetarian diner (think Chicago Diner or the local Fare Well putting on airs). It continuously riffed on (at least my) childhood memories of favorite foods--sure, they're elevated here and fancier, but darn if they're still not comforting and deeply satisfying. There were about 8 dishes of varying sizes, with the main attraction being a choice between a gyro or a cheesesteak. My wife and I picked one of each and split them. Both were delicious and would be perfect replacements for Adams Morgan's post-drinking jumbo slice, but my heart belongs to the gyro because it was the closest thing in the USA I've had to the gyro of my formative years. The mini tacos tasted like--and this is a true compliment--how I remember Taco Bell decades ago. There was also mushroom souvlaki, beet fritters, feta and tomato salad, garlic bread, roasted squash, and strawberry ice cream. Everything was outstanding. (To those who may be curious: as far as I could tell, there wasn't any tofu, seitan, or processed meat substitutes--it was mostly mushrooms or legumes in place of meat.) (EDIT: jca76 kindly explains below that the gyro is tofu-based. I was too busy Snuffles-ing to be bothered to ask.)
  2. how Tom S. could give Opera two stars is beyond me. The food was pretty bad as I remember and we were quite limited as the table next to us steered us away from the pasta dishes. Best U street meal has been at Coppies Organic.
  3. Isn't it remarkable how close "appealing" and "appalling" are? For those of you who don't want to pay $12 per pint for Jeni's (that's about how much it costs, right?), I'm going to make a suggestion: If I could name the 10-best pints of ice cream I've ever had in my entire life, all 10 of them would be from Happy Gyro (i.e. Komi). It costs $15 per pint, and that's a price you'll gladly pay. If you have any questions, please post them on the Komi thread (I'll eventually split Happy Gyro into its own thread). If I could name the 10-best pizzas I've ever had in my entire life, all 10 of them would also be from Happy Gyro. They cost $32 for an eight-slice pizza, enough to savor dinner-for-two unless you have enormous appetites. The white, vegetable-based pizzas are my favorites - they're magical (you might be tempted to order a pepperoni-based or sausage-based pizza your first time, but don't - the meats are wonderful, but the vegetables and white sauce allow the crust to shine the most (the dough has been in the works for 17 years, with thousands of tweaks, and they've gone through 4 pizza ovens trying to achieve perfection in their crust)). This is Komi-quality gelato and pizza. From a consumer's point-of-view, nobody in the world is more familiar with Happy Gyro's (i.e. Komi's) gelato and pizza than I am (unless there's some lunatic I don't know about), so I'm pretty confident here. Just ask on the Komi thread if you need specific details (I've had just about everything on the menu) - feel free to write "Rocks sent me" when you order (click here).
  4. Cici's goes down next. As an aside, my wife and daughter had the bagel sandwiches from the Call Your Mother trolley and were raving.
  5. We've been ordering from Lost Dog fairly often this week (simultaneous kitchen and bathroom updating will do that to you...). I love their tomato-feta pie (light on the feta) -- it has rosemary and toasted pine nuts. Yum. I also love their Big Dog sandwich -- messy but filling and delicious. Their milkshakes really vary -- if they listen and make them "extra thick," they're not usually evil. "Regular" thickness isn't worth it. We tried their brownies this week -- perfect, with chocolate chips and no nuts -- and I tried a peanut butter pie thing last night that really didn't do it for me. We've eaten in a few times and like their onion rings, but I honestly (even with the ridiculously poor communication skills of almost every single person manning the delivery line) prefer delivery. PLUS, rumor has it that by the end of the summer, they'll be able to deliver some of their fabulous selection of beers again -- woo hoo!
  6. I could not find a topic for Monterey's Pizza in Alexandria. They just opened a new location about a block away from their old location. They are going to have a patio, they have some inside seating (not huge about 7 tables of various sizes). Beer and wine license coming. We have tried DRP, Lost Dog (our previous favorite), Lena's and Monterey's so far has been our favorite delivery/eat in pizza that we have found so far in the Alexandria/Del Ray area. the crust has nice char, I think the toppings are really good. The staff is really nice, delivery is fast. We have eaten in their new location and while not amazing ambiance wasn't bad, we watched baseball and ate some pizza. I think the sauce is better than Lena's, crust is better than Lost Dog, and I am not sure why exactly, but as a whole I find it better than DRP. Anyway, just my two cents.
  7. H & Pizza recently opened between 11th and 12th on H (right next to Taylor Gourmet) and seems to offer a good new option in the neighborhood. You can see the menu here. The place isn't large, consisting of 5-6 communal tables with 6 seats each, and definitely has a more industrial decor, like it's neighbor. My favorite thing about the menu is that the most you will spend on a pizza is $8.64, no matter how many toppings you order. I don't think it's comparable to the Neapolitan places around town, but it is made fresh in front of you and served piping hot. It's also a fairly large personal pizza that could probably be split (although maybe 2 pizzas for 3 people would be an ideal serving). You start with an option of traditional, whole grain, or multigrain crust, followed by an option of 6 different sauces and 6 different cheeses. You then have an option of unlimited toppings from about 8 different proteins, 12 different pre-bake toppings, and upwards of 15 different "finishes and oils." If that is all too overwhelming, the menu also offers 9 different suggested combinations, along with a few salads as well. I decided to opt for one of their suggestions on this first trip and went with the FARMER'S DAUGHTER (Spicy Tomato, Housemade Mozzarella, Hot Sausage, Farm Eggs, Spinach, Parmesan Reggiano, Red Pepper Chili Oil) on multigrain crust. When you step up to order, you choose your crust and then are able to view all of the fresh toppings spread out on your pizza before it is scooted into the oven. A few minutes later it emerges from the other side and the finishes are applied before it is handed over. I was particularly impressed with the flavor of the hot sausage and the nice kick from that alongside the sauce and the chili oil. The eggs cracked on top were perfectly cooked to ooze out as the slices were separated. The crust also had a better flavor than I was expecting and I'd be curious to try the whole wheat next time. My +1 ended up creating his own and had trouble limiting himself in toppings as he added sopprasetta, sausage, mushrooms, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, prosciutto, and basil. Surprisingly, it turned out pretty well and not as heavy as it would seem. I look forward to returning and experimenting with some of the more interesting toppings, such as putting together a white pizza with goat cheese, prosciutto, and fig marsala topping, or something with shrimp and pesto perhaps.
  8. A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to attend a soft-opening for Il Canale in Georgetown. The restaurant is officially open now, but after searching this Forum I didn't see a mention of it. The restaurant features "2Amy" style pizzas made from a large brick pizza oven right near the main entrance. But it also has a menu of finer Italian food (with prices to match). My entree was the Bronzino in parchment, which was voted one of the best by our table. There were mixed impressions of other entrees. A seafood risotto was loved by some but found too salty by others. Two of our companions had steak, one filet and one rib eye. Both appeared to be well done and were enjoyed by those who ordered them. I had a piece of the rib eye and found it good but not remarkable. The wine list was still a work in progress at the time of my visit. If anyone's been there since the full opening perhaps they can share their thoughts. The service was a bit slow, but consistent with what I've seen at other soft openings. The waiting was made more than bearable though by house made bread which was fresh and warm (even at 9pm) and served with olive oil infused with roasted garlic and rosemary.
  9. 4813 Beauregard St, Alexandria, VA 22312 There is a saying in the wine industry: "It takes a lot of cold beer to make good wine!" My corollary to that is it takes a lot of junky pizza delivery to make a happy home. Our local pizza joint is Valentino's and we have only done delivery. The crust is nice: thick for a thin crust, chewy, yo can taste the yeast and salt. They don't use a lot of sauce. The ingredients are better than they have to be for out in the hinterlands. We have had a roman special a vegetarian and a Valentino's special and all were good. We accidentally got a large instead of our usual small. The result is for $8 extra we have a huge breakfast/lunch for tomorrow. Delivery is quick and the online ordering especially easy.
  10. I will keep my eyes peeled as I inch my way up the Pike on my next pizza run. Not only are their pies great, everyone in the shop is so nice -- whether they're patiently taking a long phone order, when you come in for pick up or when you're eating in. Fond of Frankly, too -- it's not the same, but we're lucky to have better pizza around these days.
  11. Stopped by 7th Hill Pizza (next to Montmartre) a couple of hours ago. I walked in to look around, and they're giving away slices of pizza. I thought the pizza was pretty good (nice brick oven). Apparently they're still lacking an inspection before they can open for business fully. I'll be back when they are.
  12. Do all the Ledo's have super sugary sweet sauce? Can't say I care much for the crust either, just not my thing.
  13. Little Coco's for dinner tonight. It's about 3 blocks away, so easy walk. We ate appetizer buffet, and it was tasty. Also wine. If you like their pasta (we weren't in a pasta mood tonight), Thursday is pasta and prosecco night there. So, a deal on 2 pastas with 2 salads and a bottle of wine.
  14. Hey everyone--I hope you'll forgive this little plug for a friend of mine. I live in Columbia Heights and can attest that new blood is sorely needed over there, as our dining options are pretty limited. James O'Brien (former owner of funky-but-defunct music venue Staccato in Adams Morgan) has changed venue and flavor. His new venture will focus on brick oven pizza and other cafe fare at the corner of Park Road and 11th St. NW in Columbia Heights, near the Tivoli and the new Giant. The new place is called RedRocks and is scheduled to open in February. Besides brick oven pies at a reasonable price-point, RedRocks will also feature a full bar with tasty beer (look for some good Belgians), a brunch menu, and outdoor patio seating.
  15. A coworker is touting the quality of Vace's pizza, saying it's the best slice in the city. Having never been, and not seeing a thread for it here, I ask for your opinions. There's also a Bethesda location. http://www.vaceitaliandeli.com/ 3315 Connecticutt Avenue (202) 363-1999 (Cleveland Park) 4705 Miller Avenue (301) 654-6367 (Bethesda)
  16. So Jon and Ankur thought a Sunday afternoon about 3p would be a good time for a DR invasion. Weekday evenings would also work, but I think traffic makes Sunday more likely to gather a food crowd. I'm proposing March 29th. Before I go create a topic, can I get a few people to say "sure, I'll go on that date"?
  17. Edan Macquaid, long-time pizzaiolo at 2 Amys, is partnering with the owners of 2941 to open a pizzeria in downtown Falls Church. The name is to be determined, and the location is best kept off-the-record for now. This has been in the works for some time, and, at least on paper, has the potential to be one of the most exciting restaurants to open in 2008. Look for Macquaid back in action as a full partner, serving up wood-fired Neopolitan pizza - possibly with DOC status - antipasti, a full selection of beer and wine, possibly a liquor license, an exhibition kitchen, and seating at the bar. Not all details have been resolved, and I don't wish to overstep my bounds, so this is all I feel comfortable saying for now. Congratulations to everyone involved, and we'll see you soon. Cheers! Rocks.
  18. Per PopVille, the restaurant space formerly known as Chipotle and Cereal Bowl will become Tino's Pizzeria. Not a lot of information available yet, not even on their website. From what I can glean from their Instagram account, they are using flour from Hayden Flour Mills, also used by Pizzeria Bianco. They will also have an octopus pizza.
  19. The only place to go right now is Scarr’s on the LES. That little write up doesn’t do it justice. Hands down the ultimate NYC pie. Also their subs and Caesar salad and natural wine list in a setting that is so throwback are perfection.
  20. Tonight, a snapshot in time, trying to shed some light on the ongoing debate. I spent nearly five hours visiting 2 Amys, Bebo, RedRocks, and Comet. A basic tomato-and-cheese pie was ordered at each. The results were clear: 1. Comet 2. RedRocks 3. 2 Amys 4. Bebo Details - and pictures - forthcoming. Cheers, Rocks. --- [The following posts have been split into separate threads: Mellow Mushroom (turbogrrl)]
  21. When this place opened in the spring, I had no interest whatsoever in trying it out even though I'm a pizzaholic. It just looked like a place that would serve canned toppings. However, they had a special $7 for a solo pizza with one topping and $1 for a can of soda. I couldn't resist plus knowing that Pete's A Pizza was gone. Well, this place is actually pretty good. The sauce and cheese tastes good and my fresh mushroom topping hit the spot. The crust was just okay -- a sauce and cheese delivery mechanism. I've been there twice and it has been pretty empty. I just hope they are getting the post-bar closing weekend crowds. I also treasure this place because I know my pizza will always be freshly made. I don't have to worry about getting a dried up reheated slice like I did at Pete's and at Bronx Pizza. Please try it out before they close for good. I'm plan on going once a week for lunch.
  22. There's a Coming Soon sign at this building in Clarendon (near the corner of Wilson and Washington Blvd). The website says coming in early 2007 though, so I guess it's still a ways off from opening. Anyone know anything about this place?
  23. They just opened their Reston location Friday - apparently have another coming soon to Tysons and one already open in DC according to their website. On good word, the place was packed, food was pretty good. It is situated on the main promenade diagonally across from Clydes in the old Paolo's (then Neyla) space. Indoor and outdoor seating is also nice, the latter being close to the main fountain at RTC. Appear to have around 25 locations throughout the US. Part of the FOX Restaurant Group which also has a FlowerChild location in DC.
