    if they have the short rib special, you absolutely have to get it. Just be warned, it is huge and comes on the bone. The smallest sized one they had was about 1.25 lb.
  3. I recently had superb service at Cru. However, the restaurant was EMPTY, which worries me a lot.
  4. does Co take reservations? trying to decide on a place for small group
  5. are you referring to their bomboloni? ← I am pretty sure thats what they call it.. Going this Saturday, will take a photo.. Have you had it? What are your thoughts? ← its good, but not as good as ours . i think its a bit pricey for what it is and who knows how long they let it sit out...

  7. I really enjoyed the pork belly ssam the other night...
  8. Actually, they are not including anything extra. This I confirmed. I asked for the "regular" bo ssam, not the two choices with the prices pp.
  9. I'm a little bit disappointed with MSB. Called them today to inquire about getting the bo ssam for takeout. Apparently, they've increased the price again, this time to $200? Can anyone confirm? Then, (this is what shocked me) the person on the phone told me that they would have to charge $250 if I wanted the bo ssam to go (which does not include oysters). Now, I have no problem paying more if there are increased costs or whatnot but come on, $50 upcharge for no apparent reason at all?? They're making more money (and have less hassle) for takeout than if I brought my party to dine in.
  10. anyone know if they're willing to do a bo ssam takeout??

    awkward indeed, but not unusual at all. i've been many times for lunch (and the restaurant is usually empty) and that happens a lot. had the white chocolate dessert last time as well, thought it was ok but wasn't blown away by it

    indeed. i went for lunch today and saw they had posted it on a chalkboard, but there was no mention on the website when i was looking at the menu. btw, moist brisket still as good as every other time. pork ribs... not so much.
  13. I was interested in going but didn't fell that the admission price was worth it.
  14. had the bo ssam again a couple nights ago. still amazing. tried the cauliflower the first time. definitely liked it, but still prefer the brussels sprouts
  15. I'm glad you were finally able to get to Shimizu.
  16. Celeste is excellent and very well priced.
  17. Has anyone tried to reserve the bo ssam? I tried calling but there's no option on their phone menu to talk to anyone in the FOH (Besides the manager) to book it.
  18. Had them on Friday. They were delish!!
  19. great reports so far. btw, the sam talbot that does the kim chee dogs isn't the same guy thats on top chef.

    I concur. I've been twice since the menu change and its been empty both times (weekday).

    Real dessert, as I had already posted above. For the entree choices, they have a variety of dishes from the a la carte dinner menu - Carolina spiced shrimp, rice flaked tuna, grilled artic char, beef tenderloin, bluefin tuna burger, veal payard, etc. The beef tenderloin is very similar to the dish at JG
  22. Can someone tell me where I can buy saddle of lamb, somewhere not too far from Silver Spring? I've tried Whole Foods and they don't have it
  23. It's interesting to see that Augie has pics from his dinner on his blog, considering the statement that GR made before the opening....

    Just had a great lunch at Perry Street. The dining room was virtually empty though, which I found very odd for a Friday lunch. In any case, they've structured their lunch menu just like Jean Georges now, but at a lower price point. $24 for 2 courses + dessert from a list, $12 each additional course, plus an assortment of house-made sodas. The food was excellent - had a bluefin tuna burger and veal payard. For dessert, goat cheese cheesecake with concord grape sorbet.
  25. One of my good (and rich) friends from Korea recently dined at Yasuda, Kuruma, and Masa. He liked Kuruma the best, Masa second, and Yasuda third. His claim was that the quality of fish at Kuruma was superior to that of Masa and Yasuda.
