  1. Komi's turned into Happy Gyro for June. It's like a really refined vegetarian diner (think Chicago Diner or the local Fare Well putting on airs). It continuously riffed on (at least my) childhood memories of favorite foods--sure, they're elevated here and fancier, but darn if they're still not comforting and deeply satisfying. There were about 8 dishes of varying sizes, with the main attraction being a choice between a gyro or a cheesesteak. My wife and I picked one of each and split them. Both were delicious and would be perfect replacements for Adams Morgan's post-drinking jumbo sli
  2. Isn't it remarkable how close "appealing" and "appalling" are? For those of you who don't want to pay $12 per pint for Jeni's (that's about how much it costs, right?), I'm going to make a suggestion: If I could name the 10-best pints of ice cream I've ever had in my entire life, all 10 of them would be from Happy Gyro (i.e. Komi). It costs $15 per pint, and that's a price you'll gladly pay. If you have any questions, please post them on the Komi thread (I'll eventually split Happy Gyro into its own thread). If I could name the 10-best pizzas I've ever had in my entire life, all
  3. Shouk is a fast-casual eatery serving 100 percent plant-based deliciousness!!! Here is the menu: - the restaurant opened May 3rd. On Sunday, May 15, 2016, I enjoyed the following: Shouk Pita with roasted fennel, crispy potato, red pepper, pistachio pesto Polenta fries with tomato tahina Shouk Salad with lots of fresh & roasted veggies, crunch, tahina vinaigrette
  4. Green Almond Pantry is currently open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch service from 11:30AM to 3:00PM and until 7:00PM for take-away of Market and Dinner Specials. Counter seating is limited to approximately 8 seats. Lunch Specials are also available for take-away between 11:30AM to 3:00PM. Here is the article in the Washingtonian: Shaw Now Has a Lovely Vegetable-Centric Mediterranean Market and Restaurant: Former Etto head chef Cagla Onal debuts Green Almond Pantry I recommend following Green Almond Pantry on instagram for the latest updates. Below is the daily menu f
  5. I needed some grounding today, so I headed to Woodlands out in Fairfax for some carryout. This is real Indian food, and I'm talking manly-man southern Indian. Not the meatly oolag you sit and nibble on with a Kingfisher and a side of A&D, but the stuff you snort down with a cup of damned tea. Look at this: $7.25 gets you a Special Rava Masala Dosa. Man oh man oh man this is awesome. Call ten minutes before you arrive because it takes them fifteen minutes to make it. Get your order, and march straight back to your car. Open the metal container. Notice the beautifully grilled crepe, a crea
  6. http://bvfarmfood.com/ 8am-9pm daily Went to Bon Vivant with the Momma. I had forgotten Evening Star wasn't open for lunch, and we decided to try somewhere we hadn't been before instead of wandering down to Cheesetique. I got a pear and walnut salad with pulled chicken. Momma got a flank steak salad. The salad was good, but the fancy way they put the dressing on which looks very nice, isn't super practical. Next time I will just ask for dressing on the side and mix it in myself, and ask for some cracked pepper. The chicken was very good though. The salad itself was fine, if a
  7. HipCityVeg Dupont Circle Grand Opening WHAT: Festive grand opening party for the expanding plant-based fast casual brand’s second DC location in Dupont Circle.

  8. A friend was raving about this place yesterday. He got lunch there after shopping at the newly reopened Frager's. He got chicken kabob, I think with salad. He thought everything was good and high-quality. Not too expensive. I really should have taken notes. He liked it enough that I'm creating a thread without having tried the place. Perhaps someone else reading this has? It gets high reviews on both Yelp and Google. They deliver through Seamless, Doordash, and Grubhub. It appears that they are closed on Tuesdays but are open for lunch and dinner the rest of the days and post-midnight all
  9. "This is it," I thought to myself. "This is the best taco I've ever eaten in my life." I had read about the lines at farmer's markets for Suzanne Simon and Bettina Stern's taco stand, but didn't really know much about it. The other day, I decided to go see for myself, and I am *so glad* I found out early on about Chaia. First, the location: Chaia is on Grace Street, which is just a few feet off of Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown, south of Georgetown Park Mall - it's *right there* off Wisconsin, and even has a little sign directing pedestrians to "tacos and beer" - don't let the words
  10. I'm shocked no one has started a topic on Preserve. This place easily is one of the best in the area, and I include DC metro. After having their chef's 5 course tasting menu there last weekend, it is no surprise that they are included in the Washingtonian list of best restaurants. It is in a great location right on Main Street directly across from Chick and Ruth Deli. We had a large group and a fabulous meal with great service. The place is rather small only 40 or so seats in total including a bunch of bar seating. There is an open kitchen right in the back of the long narrow dining room. It i
  11. Years ago, I enjoyed several meals at Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant in Vienna. I thought many times about returning, but for whatever reason, I just never seemed to get there. Then about a month ago, I returned. Then I went again. And again. And yesterday I found myself in my car, having just ordered a Curry Paradise lunch entrée for $5.95. In the parking lot at the back of the restaurant, enjoying a quiet meal by myself, I took two bites of the dish, and then I started laughing. I started laughing because the food was so unbelievably good, the latest in an unbroken string of
  12. I just got word that hiring has begun at VEDGE. Please forward resumes to careers@vedgerestaurant.com. More details to follow as I learn of them. I am so excited about this opening more than any other restaurant. Here in Lancaster, both Vedge , along with V street are a local favorite to vegetarians, and carnivores alike. Makes me kind of wish I live back in the District. Almost. Just the messenger, kat
  13. Spoke with the owners of Banana Leaf, a new Sri Lankan restaurant opening next to Jakes on Connecticut Ave in Van Ness/Chevy Chase. I don't have a whole lot of information other than they tell me this will be the first Sri Lankan restaurant in the DC metro area. It is affiliated with Banana Leaf in NYC, but the primary day to day operation will be by two guys I met who live in DC. They expect the restaurant to open in the next few weeks with a liquor license to follow.
  14. Science Club? That sounds interesting. Anyone have news on what it is? Bar, lounge, resto? What kind of drinks, couches, food? Maybe you have to check your brain at the door?
  15. Spotted this last week walking home from my new job, stopped in for lunch today. Apparently they opened a few weeks ago. Lunch was an order of Misir Wat to go, which came with a small helping of collard greens, a small helping tomato/onion/pepper salad, and a second piece of injera. The lentils had a nice flavor with a little bit of heat but nothing searing. There is also a breakfast menu with ful and fir fir and egg sandwiches. Hours are 7-6, maybe 7-7. maybe. It was entirely pleasant and I'll probably hit this once every week or two. No idea if there is any relation to the Bunna in
  16. I have what very well may be an impossible task. I'm turning 30 in late June, and plan on celebrating with my girlfriend, my twin brother, my other brother and my parents. My girlfriend and father will eat anything. My twin doesn't like seafood. My older brother and mother are both vegetarians (no fish). I try to avoid pork, but otherwise the more adventurous, the better. We don't want a white table cloth formal experience (i.e. no Kinship even). Any thoughts? Tail Up Goat won't take reservations for 6. Arroz seems too casual. Convivial is maybe my favorite place in the city, so it's
  17. Saturday dinner near Adams Morgan. One vegetarian, one person who is recovering from surgery and needs bland/healthy/low sodium, four foodies, and one person who probably doesn't care. Request for Adams Morgan came from a Bostonian who hasn't been to DC in quite awhile (I suspect). So he might be thinking A-M circa 1990. Or maybe that's where he found an Air BnB. My guess is that the four out-of-towners all like to drink, though maybe post-op guy is out of commission on that front. Any ideas re where to go?
  18. Tried Dera Restaurant today after a previous visit earlier in the week to Thai Ghang Waan which I liked albiet I don't know if it was a clear first in the DMV. Nevertheless, I digress, the mall Thai is in is mostly South Asian and boy is it huge. Out of all the strip malls I've visited this is one of the biggest conflagrations. I knew I had to come back and do more work on some of these restos which I finally got to tonight! I went to Dera Restaurant as I had previously read about it and it seems to be the most "renowned" of the Pakistani fare at this mall. It's a funny place as the dining roo
  19. I first heard about this vegetarian Indian restaurant back in April but never had an opportunity to check out the place until today. This place is located in Herndon off of Fairfax County Parkway. If you are on the toll road you can take the exit for Fairfax County Parkway. There was a steady stream of customers during lunch time. I decided to go with the masala dosas and channa bhatura. The dosa was spot on. Probably one of the better dosas I have had in the DMV. I was not that impressed by the Channa Bhatura. I think the version at Punjabi by Nature is better. If you are veg
  20. In PA for a wedding this weekend. Looked at us a bit funny as 3 families with kids strolled into a pub for brunch, but frankly not much else was open or looked good...plus all the parents needed a beer. Great draft list. I had a local bitters on cask (Yards ESA, I think). Po-boys were tasty and filling, and the fried green tomato BLT with Benton's bacon hit the hangover helper high points. Definitely a solid brunch/lunch option if you're in that neck of the woods.
  21. Madras Palace probably deserves its own thread by now. Time and again we still get a hankering for some south Indian vegetarian cuisine, and MP remains our go-to. Early Sunday evening however, I was surprised that they were pushing a buffet. The dining room was still quiet at not-yet-6 PM, so we ordered off the menu instead. I don't know if they were unprepared to cook, but there seemed to be a startup lag, as the first thing to emerge was perhaps the oiliest plate of papadum I've had in a while. Not yet up to temperature, we thought, and braced for disappointment. Fortunately, things continue
  22. Ron Johnson, aka "Smokin' Jarhead" is a former marine, now offering some of the best barbecue I've ever eaten, and absolutely some of the very best barbecue you can find in the Washington, DC area. A couple months ago, I bought three Full Racks of Ribs ($24) from Ron, and he delivered them to my front door, where they were waiting when I got home. Between me and my son, one of them didn't survive the evening; the second didn't last the week, and the third is still in my freezer, waiting for Matt to come home from college in a couple of days - the ribs freeze, reheat, and are 90% as good e
