thank you. Do you recommended Ssam Bar or Ma Peche?

It is just two of us so we can't get the Bo Ssam or the beef 7 ways. I have read the book and really like the ham stuff they do at Ssam Bar...but Ma Peche seems a bit more edgier?

Is the line at Ssam Bar on a Sunday night atrocious?

Clinton St. Baking seems perfect, a little far form the hotel though. Anything near Brooklyn Bridge/South St. Seaport?

I am rolling up from DC for 2 days to NYC. She is Austrian and visiting for a bit and I want to treat her to some food in NYC. We are staying at Gild Hall right by South St. Seaport.

We arrive very early on Sunday morning.

Breakfast/Brunch Recs? Delicatessen maybe?
Dinner - Degustation (any other recs?)

Monday Breakfast Recs?
Lunch - Peanut Butter and Co (I have a fascination with this palce)
Dinner - Ssam Bar (or Ma Peche)

Any thought...I am open to anything.

Vienna Virginia Too late

Friends Kabob on 123 stays open very late.

Amphora in Vienna is also a good choise. A short drive to Annandale wil really open your options.

BBQ Buffet?

I am from SC and BBQ buffets are very popular down there.

Are there any in the DC Metro?...if so which are good?

New Flippin' Pizza - Falls Church

I have eaten the one in Reston a few times.

Thin crust. Not too greasy. They do sell by slice.

They have a nice $5 two slice and a drink special which is good.
