A decent restaurant in Lynchburg VA

Hi everyone,
I'm taking a weekend trip today to Lynchburgh VA and was wondering if there are any good restaurants there? Thanks a bunch.

Thanks, but they've already done Moby Dick.

Sounds great. But probably too noisy and crowed to go with kids. I'll try it some other time. thx

Yes! you're absolutely right. Rockville Town Center would be so much better than all the chains in Kentlands. I've been to ilpizzico, thanks to this boards recommendations, and loved it but I think it would be a too grownup for the kids. Bobby's Crabcakes would be a very good Maryland experience indeed. Thank you.

My old childhood friend is visiting us from Paris and they're staying at Crown Plaza in Shady Grove. They've been to our home for dinner but want to have dinner near their hotel next time. She and her husband have an eleven and a seven year old who are very well behaved. I was thinking of Buca. Does anybody else have any other ideas?

What to order and stay away from at Guapo's?

So skip the glop. Got it. But first, I think I'll down a couple of margaritas.

Thanks. These are all good ideas. And I can always blame this board after getting sloshed. I'm impressed that they have quail on the menu.

What to order and stay away from at Guapo's?

Our office is having its Christmas lunch/party at Guapo's in Bethesda. I've been working around the corner from that place for years now yet have never been tempted to walk in. But alas, I must and be a good company woman. So, first of all, how bad is it? Is it like the way it sounds (gloppy). And what should I order and stay away from? Any thoughts?

Good books with food as a key element?

My list would start with anything by MFK Fisher, the grand dame of food writing. I would then go to A. J. Liebling's *Between Meals*, who wrote for the New Yorker in Paris during WWII and writes about the large amounts of food being eaten in between writing about the war. Ernest Hemingway's *A Movable Feast* because it's an autobiographical book about him living in Paris in the 20's and writing in cafes all day long. *Hotel Splendide* by Ludwig Bemelmans is about working in Hotels and the chefs and waiters who prepare your food, and is filled with lovely illustrations and charming characters. Any of Ruth Reichel's books,*Tender at the Bone*, *Comfort me with Apples*. And *Epitaph for a Peach* is about the struggles of a CA farmer and shows you what today's family farmers are up against.

*Babette's Feast* is my all time fave. Then there's also a German movie,*Mostly Martha* that's also quite good.

Rude inappropriate comments

What's your policy regarding trolls?
There's a rude and obnoxious comment after the *Vitamin E(Coli)* piece in The Grinder by Melanjel1. Check it out. It would be nice if comments like that were flagged as such with a little dunce cap next to their names.

Han Ah Reum or H mart is the best Korean supermarket by far. It's located in Wheaton, MD on Georgia ave. I've been to all the others listed above but this is the best as far as selection goes and is well maintained.
