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.

Christmas dining?

Oh yes. I'm seeking a good place as well. I checked on L'Auberge already.

Group dinner for 40th birthday- BLT or Bourboun steak?

Went to Bourbon steak with a group of 8. Two of us got fish and had a good dinner. But the people who got steak were unhappy. One returned hers but was still not happy with it. It may have been an off night since I know they are known for steak. But just wanted to give you this info. What ever you choose I hope you get a great experience

Solo dinner in DC this week

I had not heard of Indique. I'm going to try it. I have gone to Risika and have enjoyed it

Doi Moi

Thanks for the detailed review

I too need help on uninvited guests.

Don't know what to tell you. Parents will probably take offense if you ask them to control their children. Good luck

Weight your own vegetables at Wegmans

I used to but not any more too difficult die to using scooter to shop. I have seen many not do this. You do what you are able. She was just rude. How much extra time does it really add

Cut up chicken before or after putting in slow cooker

What a great idea to make soup after cooking the chicken. I will use that

Turkey breast roasting

Thanks again for the various suggestions I have done it in the slow cooker with chicken. Very good. Used condensed cream of mushroom soup and water. But I want crisp skin that can't get in slow cooker. But thanks to these response I'm getting a few good ideas

Turkey breast roasting

Does anyone know if this would work? I'd like to place turkey breast on rice roast together with liquid and get rice cooked with the turkey juice drippings. Could this work?
