  1. Souvlaki Bar has multiple locations in the DMV, I couldn't find a thread, if there is one, please merge. We have gone to Souvlaki Bar a few times now as it is super close to the house. We took Mom there the other night as it has really good salads that are a pretty generous portion that you can top with lamb, chicken, pork or falafel. Last time I went I had a greek salad with chicken. I thought the chicken was a nice texture of juicy, flavorful and crispy. So the other night I got the kale and spinach salad with chicken, and I enjoyed it as well. The kale was nice and tender, the sal
  2. Sweet Leaf Cafe (formerly Sweetleaf until Green Leaf sued them) has locations in McLean and Vienna and offers a variety of excellent and large salads.
  3. http://www.bubandpops.com/Home_Page.php I hadn't realized this spot opened in February. I had the chance to drop in for a quick bite last month and was pleased...though I don't want to go too often as the kettle chips are very tempting and quite good. The day I stopped in I had a Turkey sub, and I loved it as it was shaved thinly, and roasted fresh. Wisely they have the chips on the counter for samples. Wise for them, unwise for me! I bought them and immediately put them in the kitchen when I returned to work so others would eat the majority. It is a family run operation, and it shows. The
  4. Located just off Gunston Road in Gunston Plaza next to the US Post Office, this place surprisingly has 13 locations in the area. The pizza is good as are the subs, pasta and daily lunch specials which are typically $8-10. Service is consistently good as well. Atmosphere is typical vinyl green-checkered table clothes and the Italian flag, tacky Italian inspired, framed pictures and wall paper adorn the walls. Kitchen is somewhat open and the place is always clean and pretty busy for lunch - I have probably eaten here 25 times, and oddly just now adding this post. If you happen to be in Lo
  5. Soupergirl is located on M between CT and...18th st NW, this little take-away place just opened a few weeks ago. Some of you may recognize Soupergirl b/c she's been selling at local farmers' markets for years. Her food is all virgin (my short-hand for local, organic, eco-friendly, ect). Plus she's vegan and kosher. In my eyes the vegan thing is a huge downside. I love meat. All kids of protein. I digress. The menu consists of maybe 6 fresh soups every day and they offer free tastes. She has Gazpacho (or did earlier this week). There's also pre-packaged salads of both the veggie and grain
  6. Cafe Kimchi has closed. The space is now open under (I believe) different ownership with a new name and prettier look. The new restaurant is Torai, which serves Korean and Japanese food. Yelp link (obligatory "Sorry, Don.") Someone I know who lives nearby told me about the change and said that the food is quite good and a step up from Cafe Kimchi. I have not been in to eat here yet and, for that matter, only got food at Cafe Kimchi once. I forget what it was but it wasn't something that traveled too well. Given the small space, takeout probably remains the best option here, though the
  7. Had to fill the gap between work and improv class with some food, and I needed something well balanced, so the Ballston Food Court was out. Up one level it was either Panera or Chicken Out, and we'd just had Boston Market the night before (to cure my hangover from an open bar at DC Coast). Panera it was. I enjoyed my frontega chicken and pleasantly overdressed greek salad. My wife had what amounted to a bruschetta salad served with little wedges of focaccia. The focaccia was definitely the highlight, with the tomatoes being just okay and the mozzarella being a bit firm for "fresh," almost l
  8. Just stopped by this place, think it might be rather new. Was drawn in by the Pinkberry-esque yogurt bar. Recently tried Pinkberry for the first time in LA, and after the first bite became addicted. Love their yogurt because of the vanilla tartness. It's almost like frozen Dannon vanilla yogurt, which I love. Alas, Sweetgreen's yogurt is missing that wonderful vanilla tartness - in fact, it tasted like nothing, just cold and smooth. Which is strange, because the flavor itself is called Plain Tart. The only thing tart about this yogurt was the flock of scantily clad coeds downing it . So, unle
  9. New York press and food fiends have been raving about Pasquale Jones, a tiny restaurant in NoLita serving pizza and other goods from a wood burning oven. Not wanting to deal with the crowds or a wait, we headed there for lunch on Sunday. Despite suggestions from my cousins to get the clam pizza, @MichaelBDC and I decided to split an order of radicchio salad, a margherita pizza, and a half bottle of red wine. @MichaelBDC and I love a well thought out and dressed salad and the radicchio salad was great and a nice start to the meal. The pizza was...fine. Given everything I had read and heard abou
  10. Stomping Ground has just opened on the Avenue in Del Ray, at the foot of the alley where Happy Tart is located. Hours are 7 am - 3pm. Biscuit sandwiches and baked goods available all day, breakfast items until noon, and salads from 12-3pm. The website says everything (except the Duke's mayonnaise) is made from scratch, using local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible.
  11. I'm a little surprised there isn't a thread on this place yet as we have a few members who live in the neighborhood. Pretty much everyone I have talked to about this place really likes it, but unfortunately I am not seeing eye to eye with them. The first time I went I picked up the Create Your Own Calzone with tomato sauce, ham, mushrooms, and fresh mozzarellla. I don't know if it's the conveyor-belt-style oven or the overuse of pizza flour but the texture and surface of this was all wrong for me. It was cooked but had very little crunch outside of the very end of each side. The abundance
  12. So, we've gone from zero to two "Fast-Casual Asian Bowl Places" on H Street over the past month or so. Last night I picked up carry-out from the brand new Pow Pow, which just opened this past Saturday. They don't seem to have a menu available online, so I can't remember the names of everything we ordered. This is refreshingly not a Chipotle-like concept, and instead has you just pick actual items off of a relatively small menu. They have bowls, with stuff served over rice, as well as gigantic, burrito sized fried egg rolls. We didn't go with one of the egg rolls, and instead got two bowls, Fug
  13. I don't know why Chinese people don't eat salads (historically), but now there are plenty of reason for you to stop eating salads.
  14. This is the original location of the Old Hickory Grille (I understand that there are several more now, but I've not been to any of them) and has been here for years. It has become a standby when we are in the mood for a steak salad or roast chicken. The place has expanded over the years but still maintains its original flavor. It has a definite Cajun slant, what with fried oysters and oyster po'boys, Cajun spring rolls, etc., but it is still best to stick to the tried and true. The kitchen/grill is open and you can watch as they prepare your food. The roast chicken is excellent, marinated fo
  15. So this place is probably overdue for its own thread since it: - has been around for 2.5 years - is in Adams Morgan - has reasonably good offerings - has been mentioned only in passing in a couple of other, not-so-recent, topics - is just a few steps from the now-shuttered Hans Pedr' Kaffe, which had been serving good coffee Online here: http://www.pleasantpops.com Hopefully, someone else who knows this place well can report a bit, as I only "discovered" it this week. Evidently, this biz is the brainstorm of a pair of college buddies who set out to "reinvent" the childhood ice pop with a
  16. I'm stumped on this one. A good friend and I are having lunch next week and she has requested that we go somewhere 'with good salads.' Salad isn't exactly what I'm craving in mid-February. My first thought was that we get carryout salads from the Sweetgreen 3 blocks from me and eat at my house. I'm hoping you all can suggest a better plan. It needs to be in DC. Thanks!
  17. A friend of mine just asked me where to find a good Nicoise Salad, and I'm registering a blank. The last one I had in a restaurant may have been at Marvin (which still offers it), several years ago - does anyone know who has them now? Either canned or fresh tuna is fine (although the fancy-dancy fresh kind is preferred) - I'm just trying to present her with multiple options.
  18. Interesting article in The Atlantic about a man selling mason jar salads out of vending machines in Chicago. It's especially impressive that he's selling the salads at a deep discount in a low-income area. (They're day-old but still within their safe sell-by time.)
  19. Well the space of death in the Nature Conservancy building has claimed another victim. The shop is dark and the location is off their website. I am not really that sad though because well nothing really good ever goes in there. I did like the lentil soup at Aladdin's, but not much else, some of the platters were ok. But it was convenient and roomy for lunch. I am not sure if the other location has closed, I assume they are still open as they haven't been taken off the master website. Could something good please go in there next?
  20. Website: http://fireboxgrille.com/ Address: 8417 Old Courthouse Rd Vienna, VA 22182 Menu: http://fireboxgrille.com/menu.html Visit Time: ~8pm 3/23/12 Web Review w/pictures (not mine): http://burgerdays.co...firebox-grille/ Decor: Very nicely laid out, if a little small and averagely-lit. The interior reminded me quite a bit of Burger 7 in Falls Church. Booths are scarce, with tables and stools to augment them. Drink/Condiment station is separated from the cashier enough to leave room for a line and room for egress. Wait Time: Was told ten minutes - it was more in line with ~15-20. Exper
  21. Does anyone know where I can buy máche? I grew it once successfully, another year it was a disaster. There's a farmer who sets up at the Clarendon market who rarely has it; he told me he sells almost all to restaurants. Help?
  22. There was a time, not too long ago, when I was a complete ignoramus when it came to identifying greens in my salad (I can say the same, years ago, about sashimi stored in the counter, and it took work to overcome). I studied for awhile, literally plucking out every leaf in my mixed-green salads, and working to identify them, going so far as to memorize the appearance of the blades. After awhile, I could nail just about every green in every salad. But now, I'm beginning to falter. Here's a bone-up tip: A Visual Guide To Salad Greens, text by Esther Sung, photos by Chris Astley, on epic
