  1. Newk's Eatery is apparently opening their 1st location in Virginia (Sterling). FIRST NEWK’S EATERY IN VIRGINIA COMING TO STERLING by Chris Wadsworth, Theburn
  2. Just finished some leftover "Steak Frites" from dinner last night at Mokomandy so I thought I'd start a topic about it. Mokomandy stands for MOdern KOrean by MANDY. The menu is a combination of modernized Korean and modernized Cajun dishes...but not fusion. Everything on the menu is either Korean or Cajun, just not both. My wife has been a few times with friends, but this was my first visit. The space is relatively small, and somewhat modern, but it still feels cozy. Great liquor and wine selections, with a lot of wine options from less-well-known producers (US, South America, France). Wine
  3. It's amazing we don't have a thread on The Shrimp Lover (website). a Thai-owned quasi-seafood shack, located in a strip mall just off Route 28, very convenient for Washingtonians traveling to Dulles Airport. I went for lunch today, had wonderful service at the bar, and a kick-your-butt shrimp plate that's worth knowing about. Seated at the bar, I was asked what I'd like to drink - I wasn't drinking alcohol, so I got a Diet Coke ($2,50, unlimited refills) while I waited for one of the most interesting raw seafood dishes I've had in quite awhile: Shrimp Nam-Pla ($12) - five (the menu s
  4. We have friends that will land at Dulles, and have a short time before they leave for Harper’s Ferry. Any suggestions for restaurants where we might meet them for brunch, or early lunch?
  5. Edibles Incredible Desserts to Leave Reston Town Center Location of 15 Years by Fatimah Waseem, RestonNow Closed as of today.
  6. I've been pretty pleased with the pizzas at Cafesano, Marie's replacement. Another place that made a huge step up in terms of atmosphere.
  7. Website (NOTE: if your work monitors your computer, you may want to view this page on your phone): http://tiltedkilt.com/dulles/ (just had to say that - there's nothing R+ rated on it, but let's just say it's not something you'd want your boss to see on your screen if he/she was behind you) Location in Mall: Right inside the entrance across from the detached P.F. Chang's and Cheesecake Factory. So after a somewhat trying day, having just found out about this place the night before, I decided to see whether what I'd read about it being 'better than Hooters' (which, let's face it,
  8. Happened upon the newest food, grocery, condo block or two in Sterling, Virginia recently - had been to the CAVA there several times, but missed this place as it was not open. Lunch was not particularly busy but the way this complex is set up a block off Leesburg Pike (Route 7) it is a destination. There is a Harris Teeter and several other restaurants (Chuy's) in the immediate area. I saw signs for a Coal fired pizza coming soon as well. Miller's Ale House is tucked in the middle so if you blink you could miss it. There is green space in front with some kids games and benches so it
  9. Asad opened a new place in Sterling called 1947. It has been open a few months but I think he might close it down due to lack of diners. My issue with Asad is that he is always in expansion mode. He should be focusing on ensuring that his restaurants are financially stable before deciding to expand.
  10. Is it possible that there's anything approaching Jin River out near Reston?
  11. Address (Sterling): 21305 Windmill Parc Dr #160, Sterling, VA 20166 - https://www.burger21.com/locations/sterling/ Address (Ashburn): 43800 Central Station Dr #100, Ashburn, VA 20147 - https://www.burger21.com/locations/ashburn/ Menu: https://www.burger21.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Sterling-2sided-Menu.pdf Yes, Rockwellians, another burger place (and a smallish multi-state chain one at that). I ate here tonight (the Sterling location) after a particularly shitty Saturday and not-much-better Sunday morning and afternoon, because well, why not. Also, I feel like I'm cultivat
  12. Not surprised at the response from O'Faolain's - they're good people. It's not in Ashburn though, it's in Sterling.
  13. I was asked recently to go to Hooked with a friend of mine that lives in Herndon. I was a bit surprised when she asked. "You have no problem driving into Georgetown on a weeknight (Wednesday)!?", I exclaimed. "What the fuck are you talking about Tony!?", she shouted back. By the way, I get that statement a lot from people, mostly women. After a few more moments of conversation, we finally figured out the disconnect and met up at Hooked, a small seafood restaurant in a strip mall out in Sterling, VA. I will say that I was a bit shocked when I heard the name, but while this restaurant will by n
  14. Today we went to Chak De India for lunch. They had an interesting selection of different chicken, vegetarian, very fresh soft bread, pakora and papad as well as perfectly made rice, crisp salad fixings and desserts. They didn't have as many items as Angeethi does on their Sunday Brunch with the omelettes made to order, pancakes and waffles but they are new... The owner/manager Robin was very nice and it shows in the decor, food, service and overall I was impressed. They kept the hot naan full as well as my soda glass so I was a happy camper. They have buffet every day for 9.95 m-f and 12.95 fo
  15. This used to be called "The Shark Club". Basically, it's a giant sports bar with lots of TVs. A good friend of mine lives about a mile away from it and was excited to see that they have a variety of different wings. He finally convinced me to Metro out past the Beltway ("But Roy, there are BEARS and stuff out in that wilderness!") to give it a shot. It's a huge place but was pretty empty when we got there. We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of drinks - I stuck with Pilsner Urquell as it was happy hour on drinks until 8:30 (food happy hour ends at 7), while Roy stuck with his usual (Jack
  16. Guess chaofun had a scoop, as he added this location to our dim sum guide before any of us posted. I had seen this place advertise in the local Chinese paper but not visited until today. I saw an acquaintance post about dim sum today, so, well, I felt I wanted to have some dim sum on a dreary day, so I went. Golden King opens as early as 10am, which is great, given the congee selections on the menu. I stopped by at 11:00, knowing that they serve dim sum off the menu during weekdays (carts on weekends). The portions were big, I feel, given the price; I think dim sum is just getting pricey. My
  17. There is a pizza place in (Sterling???) called Emilio's Brick Oven Pizza. It seems to be off the radar screen on DR, Chowhound, etc., tho Washingtonian mentioned it in its "Dirt Cheap Eats" piece. It's located more-or-less cater-corner from Wegmans, close to Belfort Furniture. I tried it a few years ago and thought it was servicable if not great. Does anyone else have an opinion, especially a recent one? Since one often sees inquiries from folks looking for places to eat near Dulles, such as the currently-active Debbie does Dulles thread, it may possibly be a useful addition to the list o
  18. I'd recommend "Chariots for Hire". We rented one of their limo buses and the service / overall experience was top notch (they were early, had the bus filled with ice, etc). If you wanted to go with the limo vs. the limo bus, it appears they have some stretch escalades or one of the hummer limos that would fit up to 20. David Hofman
  19. Along route 7 in Sterling right over the border of Fairfax into Loudoun there is a BBQ stand that sets up shop in a Shell station. The first thing I noticed was their gigantic rig. They are only open on weekends which is typical for most BBQ stands around Loudoun it seems. The BBQ is good, but not great. I tried the spare ribs, beef short ribs, and brisket. Spare ribs were well smoked but tougher than they should have been. The short ribs were excellent. Tender enough and beautifully smoked. The brisket was served in small cubed up pieces, which was a little different but I didn't care
  20. There's never really been much in Sterling Park to comment upon, but Sweet Tooth Ice Cream is definitely worth a mention. It opened back at the end of May, in a corner space of the Sterling Plaza shopping center, roughly between CVS and the Big Lots/former Safeway. The ice cream's good, and they offer some flavors you don't see everywhere - tamarindo, maracuya (passionfruit), lucama (which is apparently a Peruvian fruit), mango, papaya, cantaloupe, pineapple, and coconut, along with more usual flavors like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip. We haven't actually tried
