  1. Did a search here and on google but did not find anything. My wife just informed me that we are meeting friends here on Saturday night - anyone been? Suggestions or should I use my power of veto.
  2. Dame Edna and I met another couple here last night. Teddy's advertises itself as a "small plates" kind of place. OK. The place occupies what used to be Sam & Harry's on 19th Street, NW--just above M Street, which made it quite handy for all of us to get to on foot. The GOOD: Most of the food was quite delicious. We ordered several appetizers, all of which were good. I ordered the "Chopped Summer Salad" which was truly delicious: Bacon, watermelon, blue cheese, candied pecans (!), greens, etc. I suspect this won't be on the menu a whole lot longer because of the seasonality of it. The duck confit with potato puree and a balsamic (?) sauce: close to the goodness of Tom Power's version. Highly recommended. Also a real standout was the Halibut, which was served with a citrus gastric that added a touch of sweetness. The pork belly was also fine, but I didn't eat any of the roasted Rockfish--which won raves by the ones who did. Also ordered was a side of green beans with eggplant, which was very good--especially the eggplant. They have a "Rickey" on tap that was quite interesting: Green Hat Gin (!) with a reduction of bourbon--giving the drink a nice, but not cloying, sweetness--topped off by a lime foam with lime zest. Rickeys are supposed to be an air conditioner in a glass, and this one passed that test. There was also a nice selection of beers in the bottle and a few wines by the glass. As usual, I got whatever is bubbly--in this case a nice Spanish cava. There is also a wine by the bottle list, but none of us were in the market for one of those. We shared two desserts: the Brioche Bread Pudding and an Apple Sorbet. Just delicious, but the pudding came in a very hot container, making it difficult to pass around. The ODD: A lovely breadbasket appeared with a selection of things--one biscuit, one brioche roll (?) and a long, flat piece of something that resembled lavash. Problem was: how do you divide up a biscuit into four pieces? We ordered a second basket and it was taken away before we could ask for the remainders to be boxed up. It just seemed an odd selection to serve four people. Also odd was the way the salad was plated. It was piled high on a rectangular plate and, instead of being tossed together, the bacon was all on one side, the watermelon in the middle, and I forget what was on the end. If I had tried to eat the whole thing myself, it would have been very difficult to keep half of it from landing on the table (or in my lap). Since we shared it, it meant trying to scrape some onto a too small plate in a way that everyone got some of everything. Nevertheless, it was very good and I brought the remainder home. The BAD: An order of sauteed greens that was so salty as to render the dish inedible. It was taken away and off the check. Also BAD is the NOISE! Part of the restaurant is the Bully Bar--a long bar with a large TV--which on a Friday night was pretty full. The Dining Room is separate, but not totally. There were glass and wood-framed doors that could mostly keep the rooms separated, but the doors on both ends had to kept open. While not as ridiculously loud as the Jack Rose dining room (which can leave you deaf), it was a relief to get out of there onto the quiet of downtown streets. The BOTTOM LINE: All that food, plus once cocktail, one beer, two glasses of wine, and a generous tip came to about $52 a person. I've paid a lot more for much lesser food, I just wish they could solve the noise problem. Or, at least create a quiet "Geezer's" section for those of us who actually want to hold a conversation with the people we are with.
