They discontinued a # of items I used to love and changed the grade of meat used. Yes it is not as good

Hampton Roads - What's hot? What's not? Let's talk

I think it may be the Richmond area. Our agent keeps showing us places in Mechanicsville and we have been told to look in Hanover, Henrico, Richmond some others.

Anyone tried graffiato restaurant on broad st yet? [Richmond, VA]

We have been to dinner and it was wonderful. We went early so it didn't start out too loud. Toward the end of our meal it was packed. So yes loud.
On to the meal. We opted for the chef tasting we did request that the potato gnocchi was included. Here is what they served: 1st was marinated beets and the cheese and cure. The beets were gray the cheese was Bianca sardonic (sheeps milk) to me it tasted similar to Parmesan it was food cheese course included prosciutto, speck and finocchion. It also has fig jam great sweet taste and pickles. Next was the potato gnocchi who've was very tasty. Could have had more pork Ravi but still a very enjoyable dish. Then came roasted cauliflower a bit too salty. I like cauliflower and would have order it bit would not recommend it. Next roasted bone marrow with two pieces of toasted bread. Would have I liked a bit more bread but we managed to have every bit of the bone narrow last was the sirloin bistecca with oyster mushrooms and cerebrum root purée. Each bite was great. The meal was finished with two desserts. Amaretto panna cotta with branded cherries and zeppolie. Loved the panna cotta. We loved the food and look forward to going there again.

Chow Lunch at Taqueria Habanero - Report

I have to agree with Steve's assessment. Fish was good but not special in any way. Loved the huaraches. Loved the guacamole but I love avocados any way I get them. I thought the place was good but not to go out of your way for.

Which DC area restaurants would close if there were no expense account diners?

Do they go?

Any recommendations for brunch

Thanks for all your help just visiting. Yes dmv would be best for that group. I will check out the web site.

Any recommendations for brunch

Well, Just Visting, I think the group wouold be willing for MD or VA that is the area everyone lives in. I was just asking for something that people have tried and liked. I would go anywhere. I have a anohter group that went to PA for a good dinner. I will use the open table idea, as well. The brunch group is more into the getting together and not as concerned about the food as long as it is good and allows for sitting and talking awhile. They asked me to see if there was a good brunch place in Md. I suggested Normandy Farm but only because I heard about it. I have never eaten there. I will go with my spouse at some point to Lyon Hall since Steve recommended it and I find his rec's are good.

Any recommendations for brunch

Yes it was J. Gilbert's in McLean. We are thinking for after April. We have always met at the holdiay time and wanted to try something new. Thanks for the suggestions.

Any recommendations for brunch

A group of about 9 former coworkers have been meeting several years for brunch. Would like recommendations for place with outdoor seating. We sit a talk a long time. Have been going to Gilbert's. Ready to try new

Little Serow line update

Good luck. I think you'll get in

Anything halfway decent really close to Skyline

The recommendations already listed are all very good. You would do well at each of them. Also the Edan center is down the road.
