Capital Grille tonight - recommendations?

Capital Grille tonight - recommendations?

I seem to have run into some problems posting earlier......I am going to Capital Grille for the first time tonight. Are there any particular dishes I should order - apps, sides, desserts? Thanks!

Sushi Sushi

Thanks! I will definitely check out the rolls.

Sushi Sushi

I'm thinking of going to Sushi Sushi tomorrow (across the street from Two Amys). Any recommendations on what to get/what to avoid? Thanks!

Surprise 35th birthday - drinks and apps

I'm thinking it will be around 20-30 people and we'll probably get together around 8:30-9pm. I considered Bourbon, but thought the space downstairs may be too small since it tends to fill up there on weekend nights, but maybe I'm wrong.

Surprise 35th birthday - drinks and apps

I am looking for bars in DC to have a 35th surprise birthday get together. I'd like a place with reasonable drink prices, especially for beers, since this will be a beer (Bud/Miller) drinking crowd. I don't want to have it at a dive-y bar, but I also don't want someplace super swanky with a see and be seen crowd. Someone suggested Local 16. It will be on a Saturday night in late March. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Bakeries for birthday cake/cupcakes

I'm looking for recommendations for bakeries (other than Cakelove). I need to buy a birthday cake/cupcakes and would like bakeries located in DC or Arlington/Alexandria. Thanks!

Best Szechuan

I've read the posts from last year on places to get good/great Szechuan food. I've been to China Star, but would like to try other restaurants. Are TemptAsian and China Gourmet good? I know there was some debate about whether the quality had dropped off since Chef Chang left both restaurants.

Central Michel Richard

The Daily Candy piece was what prompted me to post on Chowhound. I'm tempted to head down there myself tonight after work. Just in case I don't, please do post your thoughts after visiting!

Central Michel Richard

I know Central just opened, but has anyone been and is it worth going to? Thanks!
