Lobster Truck DC

I still havent had the lobster truck yet! I keep waiting for to run into it but it hasn't happened yet. I love the food truck movement. Delicious food on wheels is always a good thing in my book.

Best in Novi, F.H. Area?

Best Middle Eastern: Al Omara Maple and Farmington. Go in there a couple times and they will treat you like family. Originally my favorite was La Shish, but after their scandal of funding terrorists and embezzlement, plus them closing down, it hasnt been an option for a long while.

Dinner for two for under $15 near Farmington Hills

If you are looking for a good and cheap dinner there is nothing better than Leo's Coney Island! My personal favorite is in West Bloomfield on Haggerty and Pontiac Trail, but there is also the Souvlaki on Orchard Lake and 14 mile.

Both delicious and both in their price range.

Best Pizza in DC?

What do you guys think is the best pizza place in DC? It's between 2 Amys and Pizzeria Paradiso for me. I'm doing some work with Lexus Magazine, and they recently published a story that says 2 Amys is teh best neopolitan style pizza - what's your opinion?

Two Amys
3715 Macomb St NW, Washington, DC 20016

Pizzeria Paradiso

What's your favorite crystal light flavor?

Ohh those sound good - I'm thinking the Raspberry Ice is the winner - going to get tonight when I go to the store! Do you guys notice if you drink more water when you use the CL packs?

Suggestions for Birthday Dinner in Dupont Circle?

It's almost in Adam's Morgan, but I always love Lauriol Plaza....great food, great drinks, and moderately priced!

georgetown lunch suggestions please

I really like Tackle Box, Pizzeria Paradiso and Paolos- all are great choices! Tackle Box, in my opinion is the most casual of the 3. Actually, Peacock Cafe might be nice too! Let us know what you decide!

Good food for casual weeknight dinner?

Good suggestion!

Georgetown Cupcake

Yum cupcakes- judging by location they will probably be pricey- LOL I miss funfetti

Greek in DC

Greek Deli on 18th between M and N is really good and they have there very own Soup Nazi. It is really casual but it is a great place to grab a bite to eat around lunch time.

Poutine in DC Area?

So funny to see this thread. I grew up In Upstate NY and this was something they served everywhere. I have been in DC for awhile and have yet to find it. Sorry :(

Cider Happy Hour at Equinox

Sounds sooo good anyone have details?

Beer and wings for my birthday....any ideas?

I really like Crystal City Sports Pub it is reasonable the food is great and its right on the metro!

Rooftop or garden dining in DC?

I am going to have to try out The Tabard - do you think outside dinning is still open in the fall?

Weekday Breakfast in Dupont

Luna Grill has phenomenal breakfast and brunch- I would definitly recommend getting the sweet potato fries. YUM!

New restaurant in DelRay?

I love Cafe Pizziaolo in Crystal City. It has a bistro feel to it with great pizza and board games to play while you wait!

The best authentic mexican

I've been to both and i think hands down Cantina Mexicana on 23rd street in Crystal City is better. Not to mention there jumbo margraritas and the great service. I am still looking for the best relleno and will let you know when i find one.

New restaurant in DelRay?

I think they have one in Crystal City - if its the same you are in for some great pizza!

Great Apple Orchards?

Me and my BF went her last weekend and it was great. Starting this weekend they will have pumpkins and a ton of fallesque things to do.

Unbelievably now available in D. C. area

Yum there is a Costco right by my house I will have to try. Thanks!

Tiger Crush Martini

I dunno - I'm not a big fan of fancy martinis. I'm a traditionalist. Gin martin, straight up, extra dirty, extra olives.

What is your favorite tomato/marinara sauce in a jar?

Yeah I have a hard time paying $8 a jar. I have been into making my own sauce these days - a can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste is pretty cheap and then I can have as much garlic, onions and mushrooms that I want!

Chicken wings

Shoot I was just reading over this and I realized that with the short week I completely missed 50 cent wings on Tuesdays at 51st State...darn

What to serve with chili?

Beer. That's about the only side I need when it comes to Chili.

I hate whole wheat bread.

Gosh I love whole wheat bread - I admit if you get it plain or made by a generic brand such as Wonderbread it can taste really stale. But I think if you get wheat with 12-grain it can be really tasty and filling!
