  1. 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
  2. Ok, so Hubby and I were supposed to be going to Connecticut for my birthday, but that didn't pan out. Trying to figure out an alternative for this Saturday night. I was thinking either dinner and then cocktail bar, or kind of a leisurely crawl to a couple different venues that have good cocktails and snacks. But of course I only have one week notice, so reservations are probably going to be a little tricky. I know for sure there will be at least 6 of us, but there could be more, at least for the drinking part. I was thinking Shaw/U St/ Convention Center as areas in which to peruse choices
  3. Looking to celebrate a birthday with 4 adults on an upcoming weeknight. Not too many constraints, just need great food at any price -- but must have a la carte options (no tasting-only) and must take reservations. Places we love but might hit too often for this occasion: Central Michel Richard Chez Billy Sud Le Diplomate Blue Duck Places we've been and enjoyed that might fit the bill: Mintwood Place Corduroy Vidalia Zaytinya Red Hen Places we've never been that sound intriguing: Ghibellina Rural Society Kapnos Cork Estadio Fiola Thoughts?
  4. One of the people whom I know is excellent is looking for a new bartending position. He is probably looking in DC. He'll do high end and/or mixology. He'll do high volume and speed. He isn't very particular now. I know him as one of the more capable, knowledgeable, and responsible bartenders. BTW: He received an exemplary review here while at Lincoln, where during a period, he headed their mixology program: Very strong bartender. DM me if you are looking for this type of person. btw: He wrote this piece, which I always liked, as it covers the topic from A to Z, speaks to bart
  5. My cousin's daughter is graduating from GW in May and she want's to have a celebratory dinner for her some place in DC or the Arlington/Rosslyn area. It looks to be around 17 or 18 people and she said she'd like to keep it to $20 - $25 per person. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Is that price range even possible in this town?!?!? The vast majority is coming from upstate NY and would probably prefer something "normal and basic" a opposed to "exotic and weird" Thanks! Bart
  6. Just wanted to thank Don for organizing the large number of threads we've now amassed relative to the growing local coffee market. Very cool to have these all in one place and hopefully more useful in finding and learning about new shops or which meet different needs. As for Don, pretty amazing the amount of stuff he gets done and how quickly at times. Normally, I'd guess he's caffeine fueled since we all know the guy doesn't sleep. But, as more of a wine than coffee guy, just another of the Rockwell mysteries. Coffee and Washington, DC....a market and city both on the move. Thanks again
  7. The Washington Post ran an article a couple of weeks back about all of the grocery delivery services we have at our disposal in the DC area. I tried a new one yesterday, Klink - you can order wine, beer, spirits, ice, and mixers, and it will be delivered right to your door. The delivery fee is $3.97 for a $20 minimum order, which is very reasonable in comparison to some other courier services I've tried. Also, in contrast to some of the grocery services, Klink does not mark up their prices - the prices seemed to be in line with area stores (of course you can get things cheaper sometimes, bu
  8. Hey friends! I just added an event to the calendar and wanted to let you know about it here, in the Events and Gatherings forum, too. I'm planning the 2nd Annual DC Donut Crawl and would love to have more people in the DC food community join us as we bike to the best doughnut shops in DC, all to benefit a wonderful non-profit called Food For Life. Check out the event for more info and register here if you'd like to join us. Thanks heaps! Peace! ~Erik
  9. Jessica Sidman reports on new oversight over DC farmers' markets. Apparently, when changes that were made to vending regulations to manage the burgeoning food truck scene, there were also changes made that affect vendors at farmers' markets. Eggs are among the products that might be affected.
  10. This is going to shock people: Our most popular forum, in terms of views, is not Washington, DC Restaurants and Dining; it's the New York City sub-forum in News Feeds. Sound impossible? It's true. In fact, the Baltimore sub-forum in the News Feeds forum gets more views than our Shopping and Cooking forum. As I've said before, I'm gunning for fingertips; not eyeballs, and I will remain forever loyal to our active members - i.e., those who write posts - because they give us the one thing that no other restaurant website has: a community. Cheers, The Lone Ranger.

  12. My husband and I are fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (through Team In Training - we will be running the Rock & Roll USA Marathon in March), and together our goal is to raise over $4,600. I am a multiple-time cancer survivor, and Jason recently lost his grandmother to myeloma, so this organization and its research/services are extremely important to us. We have been volunteering and fundraising for LLS for many years now, but this is our first training season in DC. We are looking for restaurants/bars who are willing to work with us to host fundraising events. We ar
  13. I just couldn't let the Virginians have all the fun. Seriously, Jason and I have been craving some social time, and it would be great to meet up with some of our DR neighbors in NoMa, H Street, Atlas District, Trinidad, etc. Anyone up for a get-together sometime soon?
  14. I am in need of a chiropractor, and unfortunately the ones recommended so far (on DR) are too far away. I don't have many criteria, but of course I would prefer a doctor whose office location would allow me to sneak away for a lunchtime adjustment (and my office is at 18th and G NW). An interest/specialty in sports medicine would be great, but it is certainly not required. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have!
  15. A friend of mine was looking to take her husband somewhere with good food and a great bourbon selection in northern Virginia. Unfortunately, I couldn't think of a place that qualified as that. I know places with a "decent" selection... She's taken him also to Bourbon AdMo. We suggested to her also Bourbon Steak and Jack Rose. If someone was looking for bourbon specifically, any other suggestions out there? I really need to go more to places owned by people other than the Brown brothers and Bill Thomas sometimes...
  16. US: We are a well-known Cleveland Park restaurant that prides itself on being among the best neighborhood spots that caters to Washington's elites and Everyday Joe's alike. Recent press and longstanding community support have been very kind to us (Washingtonian Top 100, up for a Rammy, etc...). Now, after a strong and sustained period of growth, we need to add to our staff. That's where you come in. Our chefs are gifted. Our standards are solid. We are consistently growing. We love what we do. In short, it's good to be on our team. YOU: You are a professional server with at least 1 yea
  17. I'm eating my very first one as I type, from a food truck parked with a bunch of others, on Mass Ave near Union Station. Lots of food for $8, and pretty tasty. I think the truck is called Krazy Koshary and I got the basic with beef.
  18. I'd like to invite everyone here to a Thai New Year event we're hosting with mad momos in Columbia Heights. Apinya Thai Food Co. in a partnership with mad momos will be celebrating Thai New Year, Songkran, at a special event on April 13, 2013 from 5 to 8pm. In lieu of the Thai tradition of throwing water on passers-by, Apinya is bringing the festivities to their favorite local watering hole, mad momos at 3605 14th Street NW in DC’s Columbia Heights neighborhood. Apinya Thai Food Co. will be setting up a kiosk for visitors to sample and purchase the original Apinya Thai Chili Sauce and
  19. hi there, just wanted to drop a quick note introducing myself and my blog to these forums. first things first, it's called Food Nomad and can be found here: www.foodnomad.net i started the blog about five years ago but only started really posting about five months ago. It's just a simple blog from my point of view about places where I've eaten. it's not classically about food since I don't consider myself an expert but i do consider myself as someone who's eaten at a lot of places. i lived in the dc/nova area about 10 years ago and recently moved back about a year ago. before then, i l
