  1. I have an unexpected trip to NYC next Monday and don't follow the dining scene there. I would love a recommendation for a solo meal (preferably at the bar- and even better if I can make a reservation) in midtown-ish, but I can cab to someplace that fits the bill. I'm looking for something not too loud. Had a great solo meal last month in Boston at Craigie on Main (thanks to Silentbob for the recommendation). Thanks.
  2. So, would love to hear any ideas regarding a new (ish) semi-to-upscale restaurant, preferably but not necessarily in NW DC, preferably but not necessarily one where one could make a reservation. For a benchmark: Crane and Turtle was the the first choice. Outdoor dining a plus.
  3. Lunch here last Saturday... The wife and I split the Tokyo shoyu and a cold ramen with a lemon/shio broth and poached shrimp. Top notch bowls of ramen. The broth on the shoyu was nicely porky, but not overly so. I think broth-wise, I may prefer Daikaya by a hair, but it would be close. Ivan really shines when it comes to noodles, though. The skinny, rye noodles in both bowls really took the noodle game to a whole new level. Wonderfully chewy in both hot and cold versions. The cold ramen was super-refreshing. Compared favorably to the cold citrus tsukemen I had the other day at Toki in DC. The broth at Ivan was a bit subtler, with less of a heavy citrus presence. Thinking on it now, I might have loved it even more if it came as tsukemen rather than a bowl of soup. Strangely enough, the real showstopper was the appetizer of shredded daikon radish topped with XO sauce. I could have eaten 4 more plates of that. The daikon was lightly pickled...the acidity of the pickle paired with the funk of the dried seafood in the XO sauce was fantastic, as was the interplay of 2 levels of crunch (daikon vs. dried shrimp/scallop). There are a ton of great ramen options available to you in NYC, but the rye noodles alone make Ivan worth a stop if you're in town.
  4. Looking to celebrate a birthday with 4 adults on an upcoming weeknight. Not too many constraints, just need great food at any price -- but must have a la carte options (no tasting-only) and must take reservations. Places we love but might hit too often for this occasion: Central Michel Richard Chez Billy Sud Le Diplomate Blue Duck Places we've been and enjoyed that might fit the bill: Mintwood Place Corduroy Vidalia Zaytinya Red Hen Places we've never been that sound intriguing: Ghibellina Rural Society Kapnos Cork Estadio Fiola Thoughts?

    When Customers Don't Show Up

    Im really sick of this idea people have. You beg for a reservation and dont show up. I understand the excuses (real ones) but do you not have the guts at least for a phone call to cancel the reservation ? Im sure alot of people in this business will agree with me. Dont wanna come , reach the phone.
  7. Hi all, my parents are coming to town next weekend and want "small plates". Can I get your go-to top 3 that either would still have a reservation available or not too long of a wait? Any price, any cuisine, SMALL PLATES! Thanks
  8. Interesting article on why it's so hard to get a table. "The Waits Are Too Damn Long: With So Many New Restaurants, Why Is It Still So Hard To Get A Table?" by Jessica Sidman on washingtoncitypaper.com
