Had some pretty good dim sum for lunch today at Mark’s Duck House. If you find yourself in Northern Virginia, it’s worth going. Got out of there at $20 for two people.
And if you’re in DC needing a hip place for dinner with good food and excellent service, recently I’ve been a big fan of IndeBleu. It’s Indian-French fusion, decor is straight out of a W Hotel, and the staff were brought in from European charm schools. Outstanding, though a bit pricey. The biggest driver of cost is that the menu is set up as four courses. I keep it affordable by ordering a couple of second courses, using one as my main.
For what it’s worth people seem to like my restaurant recommendations. A large contingent of my office came back from Miami raving about Las Culebrinas, a great little Cuban restaurant on the corner of 47th and Flagler. Clientele is mostly Cuban and the staff speaks mostly Spanish. Portions are huge and prices are low. Go to the one I recommend, not to their other location in Coral Gables.
