At (Khe-Yo), Executive Chef Soulayphet Schwader has partnered with Marc Forgione to bring Laotian-inspired Southeast Asian cuisine to TriBeCa in a warm, comfortable setting. Showcasing the best ingredients through Laotian techniques and flavors, the menu is designed for sharing and encourages guests to explore and taste a wide variety of dishes. Each wine on our concise, all-French list is available by the glass in addition to sake, beer and signature Southeast Asian-inspired specialty cocktails.

There's a time each year when Rome shimmers with a celebration known as "White Nights." It's an all-night festival of culture and the arts, but most importantly to us, it's a celebration of food and drink! Notti Bianche and Executive Chef Michael Cassady embrace this spirit each day serving seasonal, reasonably priced Italian trattoria fare throughout the day!

"Definitely the best place for pre-Kennedy Center dining, at least until Ancora re-opens. Interesting wine list. The gnocchi were doughy, but the mushroom sauce was great!"

The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

"The soft crab at Sushiko is one of the most phenomenal things I've eaten -- anywhere. That plus Chefs Handry and Piter's incredible sashimi (just ask them to feed you!) make this my favorite place to dine. Altogether wonderful."

Tyber Bierhaus, in the heart of Bethesda, will be a perfect gathering venue for groups, large and small, and for any type of event, when we open.

"Fabulous mussels, great beer selection. The all-night Monday happy hour is really worthwhile! I love the St. Arnold mussels, and the Alsacienne are amazing too."

"They have quite a lovely selection of draft beer, including Pilsner Urquell. We had the Alsatian mussels, which are done with cream, leeks, bacon -- and capers! A great combination. I'm definitely going back. Wonderful dinner all around."

"Our dining partners don't do sushi/sashimi, so we had some fabulous cooked dishes: (1) the all-time best soft crab I've ever had, (2) burikama, the yellowtail collar roasted with sea salt, and (3) roasted bronzino with cherry tomatoes. All absolutely outstanding! We love this place."

"We had some fabulous sashimi, especially the smoked salmon & goat cheese tartare. It sounds like a weird combination, but it was sensational!"

"Stunning presentation, cuisine, and wine. Simply put, perfection. The foie gras and tuna tartare were the highlight of the evening. Visit MOMA, and then have lunch or dinner in the bar area, and you will have a sensational day."

"Monday night is half-price half liters of beer and special deals on mussels. We had the mussels with beer/duck fat sauce, which were really great. Plus three great beers (Wittekerke, Paulaner Hefeweizen, and Pilsner Urquell) to wash them down with. Just across Old Georgetown Road from the Bethesda metro. A real winner!"

"We were four at dinner, and had quite a feast of sashimi, including Hamachi Crudo, which was outstanding. But the highlight was the soft crab kara-age. I could eat several of them, but then I wouldn't have room left for the sashimi!"
