  1. I had dinner at New Heights back in April, which may not qualify as "lately," unless no one else can remember a more timely meal there! If you've not been there, ask for a table overlooking the street (and therefore the Rock Creek Parkway, too). The interior is classy, though I can't quite place what the atmosphere is meant to feel like; on one hand, it's not as formal or intentionally posh as, say, Palette or Vidalia, but it's also not meant to be urban and hip, e.g., Tabaq Bistro or Viridian. It's like a neighborhood restaurant gone upscale. Anyway, we had the black bean "pate" as an appetiz
  2. I have lived in Woodley Park three years now and the dining scene depresses me. New and exciting restaurants seem to cycle through neighboring Cleveland Park all the time though Woodley is stuck with the same, uninspired characters which seem to subsist on unaware conference attendees and zoo traffic. Was excited to see a new restaurant going in over the summer only to discover it was another Indian place (Naan Wise) of which Woodley already has one (Rajaji-okay) and Cleveland Park two (Indique, Bindass-very good ). Why is Woodley dining so stagnant and bad? Any thoughts? Or hopefull
  3. Tried out the newish Duke's Grocery today for lunch over in Dupont on 17th street. First a few odd things: 1) it is not much of a grocery - they have a few baskets of produce for sale, but it is really a restaurant, 2) its menu consists solely of sandwiches, a few sides and a bar menu - but for now they do not offer carry out sandwiches (concerns about too long of a wait when they have a tiny open kitchen and basically one (maybe 2 sometimes cooks), 3) it looks like it'd be a place for counter service, but they have bartenders and waiter?/food runners so it is unclear whether tipping is expec
  4. Funny name. Funny...but not so great...place. Six of us tried this new "local food" spot in Woodley with a bit of hesitation. It's the 2nd outpost of a Vegas based concept centered on crawfish, a product of the Gulf Coast. It's half bar, half restaurant. The tables are all covered in plastic. Most of the food is served in plastic bags dropped onto the tables. Crawfish: this is what drew us. The crawfish were a bit overcooked and not really in season quite yet. Steamed Shrimp: best item tried. A plastic bag full of decently spiced and sized shrimp cooked correctly. Chicken Wings: ok as far as
  5. Fusions Alley is actually excellent, and the staff is soooo nice. A million times better than Lex - give it a try!
  6. Possibly exciting development: a new delivery joint called House of Philly 2311 Calvert Street, 265-3500. "We Deliver!" I have not had a chance to try them yet, but they look disgustingly promising. Jumbo buffalo wings and pretty much any other munchie food you could need. If no one else gets there first, I will report back.
  7. I have heard that this space, formerly the "Washington Park Gourmet," is going to be some sort of coffee bar. Construction has been ongoing for over a year now, but things seem to have accelerated in recent months. Does anyone here have any inside information on what we can expect, or when it will be opening? I have also heard rumors that the Tryst people are involved...
  8. Earlier today, I noticed a blue awning over a large window next to the Afghan Grill on Calvert Street, just east of Connecticut Avenue, emblazoned with the words "Cafe de Paris". I wasn't able to stop to investigate. Any idea what this might be?
  9. I searched and could not find in the archives of DR.com a Petits Plats thread (though, I apologize if it exists). Why so little discussion of this charming little restaurant? Perhaps one reason is location: Petits Plats is located at the end of the string of tourist trapping restaurants that dot the Adams Morgan red line stop. The vast majority of those places do indeed serve insipid food at inflated prices. "Come on, Zoo visitors, walk on in and eat this chicken we just got from Safeway." Yet, set inside a townhome with four cozy dining rooms, Petits Plats offers humble bistro dishes with ho
  10. I have walked past The Afghan Grill many times and given its location, next to a Philly sub shop and manicure place, I always thought it was your typical mom and pop divey kabob joint. It is far from that! Handsomely dressed with Afghan artifacts, the restaurant works well as a date place, parent place, or catching up with friends place...at very reasonable prices. dinner starts with a basket of sesame topped flat breads, not really naan nor pita, but toasted and tasty with a spicy green dipping sauce, heavy with chilies and mint. we started with an order of the bulanne, a leek stuffed turnov
  11. Before I knew of my food allergies (soy, nuts, sesame) I was a sushi addict. I would be still; however I find sushi in DC to be sub-par to NY, and the same goes for service, unfortunately. I realize this is a generality but it is sadly true in most cases. I often order sashimi from Uni sushi but decided to re-try Tono tonight. When I called and gave my phone number/address, the manager said that he saw I hadn't ordered recently. I explained that this was due to my allergies- especially the fact that Tono had blatantly disregarded them in the past, including soy sauce which spilled all over my
  12. I passed by Lex Cajun Grill on Connecticut in Woodley Park and it looks like it has closed, though the sign is still lit up. Anyone know whether it's history or just being renovated? I'd love to find it out's being replaced (as long as it's not with a souvenir shop).
