Anyone know where to find Hatch chili's in the DC area?

Wish I had gotten some. I used to peel, chop and freeze them. Makes for a very good soup base in the winter!

1 night in DC - need recommendations for dinner - staying in Georgetown

Ditto. I'd add Blacksalt to the list for seafood. If you want really delicious ethnic food, you need to go to the burbs. Lower meal price will help offset transportation charges. Or you can Metro to many.

need resataurant near BWI/I-95

I like honey pig but it's not cozy. Depending on time/day they may be overcrowded.
I went for late lunch once and it was deserted

CHOWDOWNS in metro area

Sorry- been really busy... mookleknuck, I emailed you, albeit late. Anyway even if you can't see the calendar (any google experts here?), the only thing on it is Saravana Palace at 4 pm Apr 21. If you still want to join, email me by the end of the day today, please. Jessica is going to give them the final headcount. And again, if anyone needs a ride from the metro let us know and we'll do our best.

As an aside - for gardeners, a Groupon for today is 1/2 off at the Garden and plant center just up the street from the restaurant (time to buy the tomato plants and herbs).... and apparently a Wegman's grocery is also nearby.

Need Dinner Recommendations for Bethesda Area

From where you will be, you will be able to head north/NE just as easily as into Bethesda. Within a 20 min drive, you have some of the best food in the area- it's just not upscale.

Scichuan Pavillion
Joe's Noodle- (Szechuan not noodles. they didn't get new signage)
Mama's dumplings
Nava Thai
Ruan Thai

Also, many suggest the Ethiopian in DC is the best in the area. If you don't want the hassle of driving into the city. park in Bethesda, take the metro. Easy.

Second the Cleveland Park idea & Passage to India and Mia's and Green Papaya. Parking is a little tougher in Cleveland Park.

Spice Xing in Rockville Town Center (on the edge of the 25 min drive limit) is very good, and parking is easy.

Mike Isabella to head Mexican small plates restaurant in old Hook space

Really? We weren't super impressed at Graffiato but we'd give them a 2d chance . I wonder if we should cancel the reservation..

Mike Isabella to head Mexican small plates restaurant in old Hook space

He's doing some pop up times at tacklebox in cleveland park for 3 weeks later this month/early may. You can make a reservation a bandolerodc.com which directs you to CityEats. You need a credit card to hold the rez with a $65 no show fee.

I'm in for Apr 25.

Kabobs in NOVA

I realize this is an old thread, but FWIW, I use Shan's Seekh kabob mix at home those semi-rare times I make kabobs. the main thing I hate about those mixes is all the sodium. I use the whole packet for 2 lbs meat, while some people I know only use 2 tablespoons!! I don't remember the recipe on the box, but I add ginger garlic, 1 egg, more fresh chiles and mix it all together into a puree, then mix it into the meat..

Dave, Rick& everyone, Joe's Noodle House for March 24 is STILL ON. When a user RSVP'd no, he accidentally cancelled the entire event. Oops. I am going to fix that tonight.
I hope some people can make it, otherwise, I don't feel the need to go on my own that day.
Jessica- I'd like to try Saravana- you speak so highly of it. As of right now, Apr 21/22 are fine.
Thanks
