blacksalt - any must order dishes?

I love their fried clamstrip appetizer, have fun!

Where to find fresh ramps between Baltimore/DC?

I bought ramps at Balducci's in Bethesda last year - haven't been there lately though.

Restaurants near E St. Cinema

Coco Sala? I love their cocktails and the food is good too, esp the lamb sliders.

Gingerbread-flavored foods in DC?

I had some really good gingerbread pudding from a stall at the Friday afternoon farmers market by the Reagan building.

Cowgirl Creamery has 3 sandwich options everyday - 1 meat option, 1 veggie option & a daily special. I usually call to see what they are serving that day (202) 393-6880

Suggestions for restaurant in Penn Quarter/Chinatown/Mt. Vernon Triangle?

What about Zengo? It’s asian/latin fusion and not too pricey.

Bethesda suggestions

Thats funny, because I find Jaleo a rip-off (not sure if it's a complete rip-off though) each his own I suppose.

And since when was 2 Amy's anywhere close to Bethesda??

Bethesda suggestions

I second the food at Mussel Bar, especially the pork belly flat bread if available.

A couple of quick options are Taylor Gourmet on Woodmont for Philly style sandwiches, and Cava Mezze Grill on Bethesda Ave, which pairs Chipotle style service with fresh Greek food, very delicious.

Ramps in DC yet?

Ramp Alert!
I had them on pizza at 2 Amy's last Sunday night and again last night on a pork belly dish at Black's in Bethesda. Would love to find them at a farmers market too, if anyone knows a place?

Meals for less than $5 in Gaithersburg/Germantown/Rockville area

It's not a restaurant, but on the 2nd floor at the Harris Teeter off Rockville Pike, they have a $5 create your own meal in the deli. You choose one meat option (grilled chix, pork tenderloin, meatballs, etc) and two side items (tons to choose from) The food is fresh and delicious and there's tables scattered around the upstairs as well.

DC Restaurant Week-January 2011

I went to Rasika yesterday for lunch and it was phenomenal.

I had the crispy spinach appetizer, beautifully cooked (med rare) salmon, and the carrot cake. My companion had the mushroom cake, lamb entree, and same dessert. Dessert was average but everything else was outstanding. Fantastic, attentive service too.

Jimmy's Market

Love their spicy sausage...I make pizza with the sausage and sauteed broccoli rabe, or pasta with the sausage and their vodka cream sauce.

Also like their prosecco, on its own or generously doused over bowls of gelato, any fruit flavor :-)

Where's your favorite fried seafood served in the Dallas area.

I really like the whole fried catfish at Alligator Cafe, even though the girl at the counter seems a little grossed out when I order it, lol.

What to do with pizza dough - besides the obvious?

I have successfully made foccacia bread with leftover pizza dough before, goes great with pasta! I just brushed it with a little EVOO and topped with herbs, fresh or dry, and a few sprinkles of parm.
