    Cantina Marina

    will try. the folks here seem to think Maestroid and the Citron restaurant qualify as FoodTV 'best of $39(US)/day eats,' so will pass. Still waiting for the 'Washingtonian' crowd's endorsement before I go.
  2. for all you makoto fans: the place upstairs i wrote about months ago (with impatient, frustrated sushi chef obviously connected to makoto) has abandoned the sushi route and taken the yakitori fork/skewer toward oblivion much the same as the sushi place. since they do not and can not and will not display a business sign, could someone more qualified (ie one who writes for the washingtonian or georgetown current) please review this place when it [re]opens?? or do i need to send in my annual dues? if makoto is too XXXX, then the place upstairs is just right.

    Brunch in the District

    haven't had a nice soft-yolked, three-minute poached egg in ages. my last 'over-easy' waffle house egg'n'sausage platter was less than inspiring. am more apt to make brunch at home (eggs benedict for chump change) than pay good dough for a half-arsed 'brunch' at lamely promoted DC restaurants.

  5. fun to sieve the rookies from the pros with the quality of their 'foodtv' posts.

    Potato Chip Flavors

    gee, youre so old school. i like to see the 'retro' charles chips cans in the pottery barn catalogs for sale for like $20 for the two-cup size. lame. maybe you can help the rest of us understand.

    Potato Chip Flavors

    i dont like the lactic acid flavor (except when i excercise) so i prefer plain Utz chips to a manufactured 'salt & vinegar' chip. anyone in the mid atlantic who has a car and a free weekend and likes fresh chips can drive to Hanover PA and get warm Utz'. otherwise, make your own.
  8. wasnt there a thread about this a bit back?

    Georgetown?

    sorry, not impressed with rocklands. compared and think famous dave's does ribs better! friend works at rocklands (gtown) and agrees ribs not supposed to fall off bone. they have little flavor! brisket ok sandwich ok will compare to 'capitol q' and report. clydes? might as well go to cheesecake factry in fshts
  11. agree. thought it may be a bit outside the dc resident's ideal of convienience, but if i wanted to, would rather call a friend to take me to 'trattoria e pizzeria' than marios if for just the pizza.... marios' no comparison --'trattoria e pizzeria' [sic?] is better
  12. Yes. Only once last -- no twice last year. Can recall three or more times/summer growing-up having crab feasts.... Around mid-july as well.. Planned a fourth'o7' w/ crabs, but was rejected with the 'first come first served -- $200/bushel fer mediums'... steam, no-boil, no old bay..... fer tourists--get yer own!! DAMN!

    Tomato Sandwiches

    Miracle Whip? Yeah, great tomatoes suck on their own. Bread and vinegar only prove their novacaine like qualities. For me, its definitely ripe Beefsteaks with anything but their own juice. Tomatoes, maybe basil, maybe fresh moz. Id say perfect tomatoes still have a week or two on the east coast.
