  1. How much do they charge at Eastern Market ?
  2. If I remember the conversation correctly Didier did a chocolate guitar for Mick Jagger. He's am incredibly witty, warm and charming guy.
  3. That steak, while terrific, is now $ 38.00 !!! Except for the steak, I usually leave slightly hungry. It is definitely NOT Palena.
  4. Was Didier formerly at the St. Regis...if he's the same guy, his desserts are INCREDIBLE.
  5. I hadn't been there in a long time, you're right it was a ZOOOO. Considering he has no high end lunch any more (there were 3 covers at 12:20p) , he must love selling those sandwichs at 5 bucks each...AND, customers were placing multiple orders. My guess is that he's making 10 times more at lunch. Good for him, bad for Mark Furstenburg. Anyone have the hotdog??
  6. Mark Furstenburg has been nominated for Best Chef in Mid-Atlantic....FANTASTIC
  7. Did anyone go the the Breadline benefit for Sri Lankan relief efforts last night. Was wondering how good the food was.
  8. Not to change the subject, just the venue. I work around the corner from Camelot. You have GOT to see the cars these girls drive !!! I wonder how many lap dances it takes to cover the monthly payment on a pimped out Cadillac Escalade. It's a slow day here.
  9. only if the potatoes were the color of a brown shirt....might it have been "mousseline"?
  10. The companion article by Marian Burros categorizes DC restaurants. The third category is the most "infrequently of all, wonderful food...that would shine anywhere. I doubt she's been here recently. This is another example of slamming DC without knowing what's doing. She doesn't even pretend to speak from recent, personal experience. I never did like this women.
  11. The Food section is written at least a week in advance.
  12. Mark is doing a fundraiser at the Breadline to benefit relief efforts in South Asia. It will be on February 3th from 5-8pm. He is contacting local chefs to ask for their participation. He is currently in France, but will be back on Monday. More details then.
  13. I was once criticized for playing 4'33" too slowly. ← It probably wasn't your tempo, as much as your damned rubato. Stop tapping your foot !!!
  14. Was there on NYE also. RUN and order the beef cheeks !!! Absoutely outstanding !!!! Also, superb lobster salad and killer pistachio bread pudding.
