  1. Inspired by the daring forays of Todd Kliman, I took it upon myself to do something people who frequent these internet food boards rarely do: I drove my car down New Hampshire Avenue from Langley Park into the District of Columbia. Cheesesteak Mike's in Hillandale? Might as well have been Flaps in Potomac. Tiffin at the intersection of University Blvd? I'd sooner go to Rasika. No, my friends, I went, and I went deep. Threading in and out of pothole-ridden parking lots, I walked up to places previously unthinkable, and even looked through the windows. One of my dicier moments came when I wal
  2. On what seemed like the hottest day of summer so far, we took a field trip to eat some fried fish. If it weren't so hot, I think I would've enjoyed it more as a quintessential DC experience. Horace and Dickies, 800 12th Street NE, serves up their fish fresh, right out of the fryer, pipin' hot. They're known for their deep fried croaker but we opted for their 6-piece whiting filets, some potato salad and mac and cheese for about $10. The fish is coated with a corn-meal based batter, and the pieces are huge! 6 pieces could feed 2-3 adults. Two small plastic containers of hot sauce, tartar sauce
  3. District Soul Food & Lounge is taking over the former Banana Cafe space. Capitol Hill Corner with the goods: "Two Brothers Soul Food, a popular but short-lived restaurant on Route 1 outside the Beltway has chosen the former Banana Café on Barracks Row as their new home. According to ANC Commissioner Kirsten Oldenburg, in whose district the restaurant lies, the restaurant plans to open in September. Banana Café closed last December, when owner Jorge Garcia-Meitin Zamorano retired. District Soul Food owners Chris Everett and David Roundtree announced last November that they
  4. I always get excited at the possibility of good Cajun/Creole food. For years, I worked at a place in the Atlanta suburbs called Comeaux's - the owner was from Lafayette and the food was amazing, and it set my expectations pretty high. I have yet to find crawfish etouffee (outside of Louisiana) that matched the version I would routinely eat after my shift. So, Jason and I visited Po Boy Jim last Friday night, and I worked pretty hard to temper myself. The two-story space is nice - we ate at the bar upstairs. Service was good - the staff seem pretty enthusiastic about the restaurant and it
  5. Though it's been discussed on Chowhound, I've never seen anything about Oohhs and Aahhs here or on eGullet. Sure, its not the usual kind of eating that comes up. No reservations, no linens -- hell, the food is served in a styrofoam container. But what food! The macaroni and cheese and Oohhs and Aahhs is phenomenal, perfectly tender and gooey. Its not an elevated kind of Mac; instead, its the down-home style that sticks to your ribs and warms up a cold day. The cornbread is also phenomenal, served hot and fresh with butter. I had my meal with fried chicken -- very tasty, though I think nex
  6. I love Flavors, but never try calling in an order. In all my attempts (more than a dozen) I have never gotten them to answer the phone. Both the fried chicken and the pork chop are worth the wait.
  7. Anybody have information about the new management team and renovations underway at Kenny's? Additional context from a Craigslist ad: "KENNYS SMOKE HOUSE is currently under new ownership is undergoing complete renovations including menu changes to better serve our community with authenticate quality BBQ and smoked meats. We are planning to relaunch an entirely new experience and look before July 4th with redesigned interior\exterior, menu enhancements, beer garden and craft beers. Must be able to start mid June."
  8. They decided not to open in that location and instead will be opening soon at 7305 Richmond Highway. The building is next door to a Shell station and has been home to several other restaurants over the years.
  9. An LA friend of my DC friend is arriving, and wants to try "soul food" in DC. Any suggestions? I was going to suggest DCity Smokehouse but is that even in the genre?
  10. I stopped by tonight with a fried chicken craving and Blue and White Carryout had already closed. This place has recently undergone new management the past couple of months but this was my first time in. (corner of Monroe and Mt. Vernon) 12 bucks with a little extra got me a large quarter dark meat chicken (the drum and thigh attached) two generous sides (Mac and cheese and collard greens) with a homemade sweet tea and lemonade. It took a little over ten minutes to get my food together (I assume they were frying to order) and I chose to eat in. There was only one other patron in the place at t
  11. Every day I drive past a storefront on the coner of Vermont Ave and U St. that says "Brown Sugar, Southern Cuisine." Coming Soon.... Does anyone know anything more about this restaurant? CG.
  12. After the debacle that was the family visit to the waterfront Philips "Flagship", I was left to wonder if this was the "flagship" what were the rest? Shit Barges? Anywho...I need to redeem myself with the 'rents. I had heard from friends that the Hitching Post was good, I decided to give it a try. Comfort food for a low key Friday with my Southern parents...seems like a match. Let me say that the place lacks for decor but has that family owned, neighbor frequented, been around for a long time feel, I like it, it's quaint. It also isn't fast, but then rarely is good food on your table quickly.
  13. Anyone been to Morgan's Seafood in Petworth - or is it Columbia Heights? - (3200 Georgia Ave. at Kenyon) since it reopened this summer? Family owned, home-cooked soul food and steamed crabs. It is open until midnight, Mon- Thurs., and 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. No website but they are "working on it." Apparently they had closed many years ago because cars were crashing through though the storefront at the busy intersection. The insurance company dropped coverage and when there was another crash during a police chase, with no insurance coverage, the restaurant closed. [so...if you go?
  14. Just tried the Levi's Port Cafe on Barracks Row (south side of the bridge) and I love it. My East Carolina (Tarlboro) friend gave thumbs up to the chopped East Carolina BBQ (vinegar base) and the fried chicken was delicious. Yams are on the sweet side, but very good, collards were fine, mac and cheese was above average, and sweet tea, cornbread, and various ribs are all options. I've heard the ribs are great, but a big group cleaned them out before we made it in. Pricing is VERY reasonable - $8 for two large pieces of fried chicken (of your choosing) with two sides of your choosing. You can le
  15. I'm still going with Blue & White Carryout on the corner of Wythe and Rte. 1 in Alexandria. They close at 3:30 in the afternoon but if you can get there before then during the week, you will be richly rewarded for a pittance.
  16. Okay, so it's raison d'ètre isn't to be a restaurant, but many people don't know that HR-57 has a $3 corkage policy, and that's good enough to get my attention. HR-57 (House Resolution 57) recently closed it's location on 8th and H Street NE, and that location is going to be filled by Fever Bar & Lounge. HR-57 reopened last Friday in its new location, two blocks east.
  17. We met friends in from out of town in town for a cheap, but good breakfast at the Florida Avenue Grill. Porkchop with gravy and onions alongside some grits and perfectly made over easy eggs. And biscuits. Deliciously greasy and cheap. If you have a hankering for this kind of food, it's worth a look, especially earlier in the morning when we went.
  18. Just watched a promo piece on this place, linked to YouTube through Arlington County. The ribs looked tasty, as did the mac & cheese, with large portions. Owner was charming in video too - said she got the recipes, all in her head, from her mom and sister. I haven't been yet but was wondering if anyone had tried the place - could make dinner for 2 for $10 out of a rib order + 2 sides that are included.
