  1. Yeah, I was about to start a similar thread Friday to ask if anybody had ever been to or knew anything about Woo Lae Oak Korean restaurant behind Pentagon Row in Pentagon City. So...anybody know anything about Woo Lae Oak Korean restaurant behind Pentagon Row in Pentagon City?
  2. Yes, I know that the Tower Club is a private club, but anyone can be invited as a guest, and it happens to be one of the better places to eat and drink in the Tysons wasteland, so why not start a thread on it? Besides, if you're in the IT industry, there's likely to be a networking event at either the Tower or City Clubs that might draw you here. It's on the top floor of the tall brick building in Tysons that looks like it has two shopping bag handles on top. I used to be a member -- at that time a few years ago, the Tower Club in Tysons was also part of the ClubCorp group that included the C
  3. China Wok in Tyson's corner (next to Marshalls) hired Chef Wang formerly of Hunan Lion. He is not there every night, but when he is, he makes a mean Peking Duck. Call ahead to see if he is working. Plus they deliver Tyson's Corner 8395 Leesburg Pike Vienna, VA 22182 703-893-4488
  4. Has anyone wondered why the outlandishly luxurious Indian restaurant, Punjab Grill (website), just ... appeared? Did you know this wasn't their first restaurant in the Washington, DC area? The corporation behind it also owns American Tandoor (website) in Tysons Corner, which just closed suddenly, and without explanation. Jan 23, 2020 - "American Tandoor Temporarily Closes in Tysons Corner Center" by Catherine Douglas Moran on tysonsreporter.com American Tandoor is owned by Lite Bite Foods (website), a huge corporation in India. Lite Bite Foods also owns Punjab Gri
  5. A Taste of Urbanspace is off to soft start with 5 concepts ranging from pizza, to Southern style Biscuits, ice cream , Japanese comfort food, to Lao cuisine. This is a starting point, with the plan to open more stalls. I have been actively following all stalls on the INSTA, and I can say I have rarely seen so much love and excitement for the opening of a food hall. Mclean holds a special place in my life on account it was the first place I arrived to back in 1976, when my parents made the maiden voyage to the US from Laos. I like the motley crew of different cuisines that are being offered ,
  6. FYI-- This came in my in-box today: I had an excellent RW lunch meal there a few weeks ago. The calamari salad was perfectly cooked and tender, and it had a kick to it. I had the kobe beef entree which was phenomenal-- it wasn't quite medium rare (though, I don't know if kobe beef is supposed to be cooked like steak?), but the saucing made up for it. I might have held up the table a bit by cleaning my plate. Dessert-- I don't remember now, but no one at the table was too inspired by any of the choices. Service-- a bit slow, but reasonable given that it was RW. Server was nice and compe
  7. Liu Chaosheng - who dat, you might ask. Well, he's the guy who opened Hong Kong Palace and Uncle Liu's Hot Pot, and he's now opened Asian Origin, in the old Panache space on Pinnacle Drive as noted in this McLean Patch article. When I first received a menu, I noted its Sichuan dishes and instantly decided to compare it to HKP (not knowing at the time they're sister restaurants). The beef, tendon, and tripe dish is $9 at HKP and $12 at AO. Spicy wontons are $6 at HKP and $8 at AO. Dan Dan Noodles are $7 at HKP and $8 at AO. So the prices are higher at AO, presumably r
  8. As mentioned in a separate post, a number of new restaurants/food outlets recently opened in Tyson's Galleria. My daughter and I were out doing some Christmas shopping, and we decided to check out Sen Khao. I haven't been to Thip Khao, but I frequented Bangkok Golden a few years ago, which is the restaurant that introduced me to Lao cuisine. The menu is somewhat "compact", and featured two starters, a salad, two sticky rice dishes, and three noodle soups. You have your choice of proteins for the salad dish as well as the soups. We opted for Curry Puffs ($5) and two of the soups. The
  9. Paty's American looks and feels familiar, which is no surprise given it's a new restaurant in the GAR group. To be clear, I've always liked these restaurants, believing they offer a good meal (and most often I think it's better than good), that's reasonably priced, and comes with excellent service. To be sure, thats my take on most "upscale chains" (e.g. Cheesecake Factory), and I'm not a tough critic in general, so you might need a grain of salt with this review. Still, one among an army of hostesses led us to a comfortable booth in a neo-industrial space (with one wall having a gigantic, and
  10. Lunch today at Earl's Kitchen + Bar in Tysons was surprisingly good for a Tysons lunch spot. The place is large, bar-forward, sort of like a GAR place. Instead of a food-for-the-masses kind of menu, it has some interesting wrinkles like a truly good sushi roll menu and a poke bowl that my companions both raved about. I had the swordfish tacos, which were delicious if slightly messy to eat. The burgers coming out of the kitchen looked substantial. The heritage is Canadian but the menu is anything but. Definitely worth a try among the wasteland of lunch options in Tysons proper.
  11. This place is ~just about to open~, but they've yet to put up a website. The only proof they exist at all is their Facebook page and a really ostentatious and attention-grabbing fascia - see for yourselves! Ballsy of them to decide to compete with Nostos and the Tysons Galleria Lebanese Taverna in far more centralized locations right down the road. One plus of their place over Nostos - covered/underground parking - though it looks like it'd be a tight fit. I'll try to get a menu or something from this place - or eat there - sometime soon.
  12. To quote The List. Are you on it?, a churrascaria or rodizio is coming to DC proper. Note: don't invite Waitman for it is a chain.
  13. I had lunch at Nostos today, and it shattered two notions that I thought were inviolable. The first one is that Tysons is where good restaurants go to die amidst the indifference of wall-to-wall chains. The second is that Greek food in the suburbs is unrefined and unsubtle -- Zaytinya, Komi and Kellari Taverna belong downtown, while the suburbs get the mom-n-pop family restaurants that dole out gut-bombs in family-friendly settings. I held these two beliefs firmly....until today....when I ate at Nostos....wow! Nostos opened in May, in the former deli across from Morton's on 8100 Boone Blvd. i
  14. In the same space formerly occupied by the excellent Maestro, the promising Michel, and the disappointing America Eats Tavern, we now have Entyse....which is neither excellent, promising, nor disappointing. I met a companion for lunch today, and it turned out to be OK. I ordered the 1700 Club, taking its name from the address of the place -- 1700 Tyson's Blvd. The sandwich itself was pretty good, riffing on the traditional club sandwich with the addition of a perfectly fried egg on top. Companion started with the crab and corn soup, to which he had to add about a teaspoon of pepper -- fro
  15. Neapolitan Pizza in Tysons: Crust Pizza. If I missed this place already covered, my apologies. Recently opened in the Tysons area 1/2 block off Route 123 and Old Courthouse. It is next door to the ABC store. If you want a great pizza and do not want to drive to Falls Church (Orso), or DC (2 Amys) or (Paradiso), give this place a shot. Decent seating and all new space. TVs usually have a soccer match on or NFL on Sunday. You order at the counter and they bring out your food. This is very casual, but also very good. Beer available. If you want a true wood-fired experience it is
  16. In one of my OCD, "nobody-cares-but-me" moments of fret, I've been stewing about whether to continue calling this area "Tysons Corner," which it will always be for me, or the newly coined "Tysons," which seems to be what it's turning into. Although I don't remember what things were like before 1968, when Lerner Enterprises (the family which owns the Washington Nationals, and the largest private landowner in the Washington, DC area) built Tysons Corner Center, I do remember comfortably driving there from Silver Spring in about twenty minutes (really - even during rush hour, when cars would
  17. Landing at Dulles and have to go to Tyson’s to buy wedding bands (GD you, wedding-industrial complex). Anywhere near Dulles or Tyson’s or between that id typically not get to go to that you’d recommend this afternoon? Asian always preferred --- Dumpling Queen (weezy)
  18. Any suggestions where to watch the CAPS game Tuesday night around Tysons. Went to BJs last week, almost died from a bad burger.
  19. How intimidating can a chicken kebob and rice be? Perhaps it's the name of the restaurant but Shamshiry is the best Persian restaurant in the entire D. C. area. Of course they do have more intimidating things like a salmon kebob....
  20. Kudos to the folks behind harth. Finally someone rethought hotel restaurants and gave tysons/McLean a cool casual place with a well thought out menu for the neighborhood
  21. Hubby and I are looking for a place to head to dinner tonite.. nothing very expensive. Any suggestions?? Little one is off for his first ever sleepover so we are on our own
  22. Pilin Thai has been discussed in several Tyson's threads and I felt it was high time for the restaurant to have it's own thread. One location (Tyson's) was often speculated that it might close due to escalating rents for the strip mall (which was the demise of Mr. Smith's). A new location is opening in Merrifield, in a small strip mall across from Merrifield Gardens, that also houses "Dad's Backyard Burgers". The food and service are great. Not high on ambiance (at least the Tyson's location), but the wonderful cooking. --- [Note: The Merrifield location never opened.]
  23. Thirded. I've been here several times over the years, most recently last week. The fish is a very slight step down from Kotobuki, but still pretty good. Toro was not available, but they did have chu-toro. I also like the spider roll, which can be inconsistent in quality though (some rolls have more crab meat than others). The only reason why we don't come here more often is that the Tysons Galleria is a short walk from our office next door. Very convenient for business lunches. But after yet another mediocre meal at the mall -- it's never a good sign when your "best" options are Lebanese Tave
