  1. Market to Market in Del Ray offers made to order subs and sandwiches with fresh breads and quality ingredients. They also have prepared foods such as lasagna and meatballs that come from the kitchen(s) of Cafe Pizzaiolo. They carry a small selection gourmet groceries (pasta, sauce etc), wines, a large beer selection and probably one of the best baguettes in the DC area. There are a couple tables inside and out, as well as a blackboard with daily specials. Look for Specialicious coupons and you'll really get a deal. Try the "Randolph" and enjoy very thin pastrami on rye and just go with the shredded lettuce and tomato. It works!
  2. Has anyone checked out this place? I live in Logan Circle and have passed by and was interested if anyone has tried the place out. If the food is good, definitely a good addition to the neighborhood over the Coffee Bar and Jamba Juice that used to be in the space. Here's a Washingtonian link on the opening.
  3. On a nice day get carryout from River Falls Market - as expensive as anything else in Potomac but mostly worth it.
  4. Last week, I got this tweet from Jonathan Copeland: Although I had largely forgotten about it, somewhere in the recesses of my brain, it resided, because I was thirty-minutes early for an appointment in Falls Church today, and - <blink> - I remembered. I didn't remember who sent it, and I didn't remember the name of the restaurant; merely that someone I trusted had mentioned good Banh Mi in Eden Center - I pulled in. I wasn't at all sure which restaurant it was, and there has been *so much* changeover in this shopping center in the past six months that Saigon West is borderline unrecognizable. I waffled a bit, then headed into Banh Ta, and as soon as I walked in, I thought to myself, 'This *must* be the place.' Banh Ta is a tiny little pillbox boutique, just a few stores down from the outstanding Thanh Son Tofu, which has the best tofu I've found in the DC area. Despite being just a counter, it's very upscale looking, with market goods and an atmosphere that reminds me of a smaller version of the incredible Phu Quy Deli Delight. If you haven't been to Thanh Son Tofu or Phu Quy Deli Delight: GO! I ordered a #1, Pork Belly (Bah Mi Thit ??, $4), the ?? being on the sign in the first link in the previous paragraph, and absolutely indecipherable by me and my illiterate Vietnamese (my apologies to native speakers - any guidance will be much appreciated). It's no secret that I haven't exactly been blown away by DC-area Banh Mi - in fact, the only ones I've had that I even consider "good" have been somewhat Americanized (Dickson Wine Bar and the underrated and under-appreciated Ba Bay). Until today, that is. Thanks to Jonathan's recommendation, I've now had what I believe to be the first authentic Banh Mi that I can say, with my European-influenced palate, and with an absolutely clear conscience, is *really, really good*! You don't even need a second one to fill up on, as the size is ample, so both qualitatively and quantitatively, we have ourselves a front runner in the local Banh Mi wars - you could say, if you valued bad puns more than honorable use of language, that this Banh Mi, won me. These three storefronts in Eden Center are less than 100 yards away from each other, and justify a special excursion to experience. I am - *finally* - sold on the merits of this sandwich, and I suspect that in Vietnam, it gets even better than this. Absolutely initialized in Italic in the East Falls Church section of the Virginia Dining Guide, and I'm very much looking forward to a repeat visit, thanks to the recommendation of Jonathan Copeland.
  5. So, my return to DC has me wanting to throw some dinner parties. But my DC work schedule makes MAKING dinner a little hard. Can anyone think of markets, groceries, delis, or other places where you could pick up some great home-style food? Like pan-fried whole chickens, fancy soups, etc? Sort of like Whole Foods Hot Bar, but a lot better? Something like Eataly or more ethnic might work.... Thanks! I could direct you to places like this in Chicago or LA, but I'm lost here! G
  6. R&D Foods is a tiny slip of a store, serving up sandwiches, prepared foods, cheese, cured meats, baked goods, and with a frozen meat case (sausages etc.). Shelves have a selection of grocery supplies, condiments, etc., many locally produced. They will also put together picnic baskets. It's a good spot to know about if you are planning an outing in Prospect Park.
  7. EatZi's closed all their locations outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area (Rockville, Houston, Chicago, and Atlanta), all on very short notice. However, they're still going strong in Dallas-Fort Worth, maintaining their four locations there, and planning to open a fifth. From the Wikipedia article: "Following their time in the White House, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura rely on Eatzi's and friends since neither like to cook." Note that the founder, Philip J. Romano, also founded Fuddrucker's (which, according to their website, has "the world's greatest hamburgers") and Romano's Macaroni Grill (which, according to their website, "sources from Italian farms"). To our friends in Houston: If this type of comment about Fuddrucker's and Macaroni Grill offends your sensibilities, I urge you to use Yelp - you'll be happier there; if you don't mind good-natured ribbing and honest criticism, you'll enjoy it here, and we'll be both grateful and better-off for having you with us - give us a chance, and you'll see that we walk the walk). Cheers, Rocks
  8. The new market in the north part of Del Ray just opened (a small regional chain, I guess), and I went in this morning to check out the scene. First glance, it's a typical small, yuppie market with a small amount of good looking produce, limited meats, but has the other staples (canned goods, cereal, soups, condiments, baking stuff, etc.), as well as a good amount of fair priced to expensive wine. They have a small beer area, a deli counter, a baked goods counter. It's expensive, but not that crazy ($2.99 for a gallon of milk, but the produce is pretty pricey). The most interesting part to me was the cafe/restaurant/bar area. It's adjacent to the deli, and pretty cool - looks warehousey/loft style with a long bar, seats there, and tables. The menu had ... korean fried chicken made to order, three different types of ramen (I think shoyu, miso, and something else), and then various small plates. How strange! It wasn't lunch time yet, so they weren't serving, but I'm certainly interested in trying it. If there is halfway decent Korean fried chicken and ramen walking distance from my house, I may have to reconsider my feelings about a higher power. Curious to see how it will do, location is in those new apartment buildings on Mt. Vernon, north of Hume but south of San Salvador.
  9. Can't find a topic for Great Wall in Merrifield, VA so starting one now, please merge if there is already one. I have long been a fan of their steam table food. I am a big fan of steam table food, in general, working class food at working class prices. The Chinese steam table is at the furthest corner from the entry to the grocery store. There you will find some of the finest authentic Chinese food in the area at an unbelievably low price, $5.99 for rice, three generous toppings, and soup. One of the best bargains for food in this area. On the weekends the selection is even better than during the week. I would estimate more than 20 kinds of toppings for the rice. As I understand it, in China, according to author Fuschia Dunlop, food is "fan" which is rice, and toppings, and meat = pork. When you eat at Great Wall, this appears to be right on the money. I am a big fan of the vegetables, e.g., bok choy, gai lan, Shanghai cabbage, spicy eggplant, Buddha delight. They are also generous with servings of ma po tofu, lion head meatballs, and many other things I cannot identify by sight, many containing combinations of chicken, black beans, and pork belly. My current favorite is tofu skins with pork belly. Savory and satisfying. The steam table food is served by lovely Chinese maidens who understand finger-pointing quite well, and appreciate and remember a generous (a dollar or two) tip sufficiently to be more generous the next go round. I am usually the only gwailo ordering when I do, and they do seem to remember me. Whether or not they do remember me, they are very nice Chinese maidens, and deserve to be treated well. They work hard. They also have in that corner various barbecued meats, including whole duck, chicken with head on, and whole pig, all chopped to order. The duck comes with the real duck sauce, with is a broth redolent with spices and heavy on the five spice seasoning. The men who cut up the meat are all Hispanic gentlemen, who also understand finger-pointing quite well. Very interesting to watch the interactions between the different nationalities seeking meat and the Hispanic men chopping it on the humongous chopping boards. This is separate from the steam table food, but the payments are at the same cash register. Also many kinds of dim sum, although I am not a fan of dim sum, personally, and thus, never order it. Also separate from the steam table food, not sure whether you pay at the same cash register or not. If you go for lunch during the week, it appears that many of the customers are local Hispanics who appear to be laborers. On the weekend mostly Asians. Point, receive, pay, and eat. Such is life in the great Melting Pot. Except, of course, that we don't melt.
  10. Has anybody else heard that Eatzi's in Rockville has just closed with only 24 hour notice to its employees? Happy Thanksgiving. And others too.
