"What is there not to love about ABC Kitchen? The staff is very nice, professional and offers suggestions about dishes if asked.
I tried the kabocha squash toast, raviolo and kale salad. Each dish was pleasing to the eye and the palate.
The next time I'm in NYC and my schedule permits, I will stop by ABC Kitchen."

"Woodberry Kitchen is a nestled in a converted mill space off Clipper Parkway in Baltimore.
I tried the turtle boy salad, broccoli soup and wood roasted sausages entree . All good dishes. Delivered in a timely manner and served at the perfect temperature (soup and entree).
The service is attentive and knowledgeable.
The bathrooms need to watched a little more closely so they remain tidy and fresh looking.
I'll visit again."

"I've dined at other Omni properties and was looking forward to having a good dining experience at the Omni Berkshire. At the Berkshire I experienced an unhappy server, dirty dishes and staff arguing on the dining floor. I ordered soup that tasted as if it had been microwaved. (the center of the dish was warm and the exterior cool) I requested a cocktail for brunch and when I noticed the server's perplexed look I began to tell him the cocktail's ingredients He cut me off and told me that the bartender would know. Five minutes later the server returned stating the bartender had never heard of the drink and wanted to know the ingredients."

With the rapidly growing popularity of Kpop around the world, the most successful entertainment mogul in Asia, JY Park has taken Korean barbecue/lounge upscale and hip, anticipating to make it the place where entertainment meets exquisite dining. <br /><br />At the heart of the concept is a custom-grill made of a crystal placed on the belly of the ancient-tale character with infrared heat that will produce higher temperatures than charcoal or gas grills. Downdraft machines are promised to eliminate smoke so you don't go home smelling like grilled meat; chef Kay promises finest ingredients ranging from rib eye and pork belly to scallops to market vegetables. A separate lounge menu serves small plates. <br /><br />The bi-level venue has private rooms specially intended for any type or size of private events.

"Kristalbelli's sleek exterior is a very pleasant surprise.
I visited for lunch and tried the prix fixe lunch and beverage paiiring, I told my server , Paul, that I was atending a matinee performance and asked I had sufficient time to enjoy the meal and pairings. He assured me that I did. Paul shared historical information about the food selections and offered suggestions and tips about how to assemble the wonderfully presented dishes.
The bathroom is clean and features sleek features.
I plan to visit again and explore other items on the menu."

"I tried the 24 courses and wine pairing when I visited. Each course was ab opportunity to explore old favorite or an ingredient I had tried before. I really enjoyed the scallops, lemon zest, and microflowers; the squab leg was the best squab I've eaten.
Service was seamless and efficient. The staff worked well as a team and was knowledgeable about the components of each dish
Stuart, Rogue24's sommelier has a keen nose and great palate - the beverages he selected to pair with the dishes highliihtedthe subtle nuances of the dishes.
At the end of the evening I received a print of the dishes I ate.
Rogue 24 is near the Convention Center metro stop. Neraby parkiing can be dificult to secure."

Come enjoy the tropical tastes of Cuba! Authentic home style Cuban cuisine where our customers feel as though they are eating home cooked meals that would be found in Grandma's kitchen. Cuba de Ayer is an ideal escape for a delicious cup of Cuban coffee, a Cuban grilled sandwich, followed up by something sweet like a slice of tres leches cake. mmm.... Bring your friends, family or come alone-strangers are simply friends we've yet to meet.

"The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm sits on a hillside overlooking the Potomac Valley. I visited on a quiet evening when an a la carte menu was featured. I tried the tempura dilly beans, parsnip soup, dogfish (shark) and jasmine rice entrée, and a dessert featuring chia seed crackers, warm cheddar cheese and onion jam. All the dishes were presented well and delicious. The staff was attentive, but not obtrusive. I will definitely return."

Reservations are not required. Contact us for large parties or special events. Feel free to contact us regarding our seating policy. Yes, we do serve brunch/lunch on Sunday with a great prix fixe including French Toast, Steak and Eggs, Eggs Benedict and bottomless bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. During the evenings, Medium Rare offers a unique, prix fixe dinning experience of artisan bread; a mixed green salad; prime, dry-aged steak; and hand-cut fries in a relaxed, fun, neighborhood environment. As we do only one thing, we do our best to make the food and experience exceptional and also a good value. There are only a few wine, spirits, and draft beer choices, but each were selected specifically to accompany your meal. We offer an off-the-menu vegetarian option. Please contact us to inquire.

"Medium Rare offers a fixed menu (bread, salad, steak and frites) at a set price. Beverages (besides water) and dessert are an additional cost. The mixed greens salad is topped with tomatoes and a tasty vinaigrette. Diners are offered two portions of the steak and frites. Wine by the glass or bottle as well as beer on tap is available. Several dessert options are available. I opted for the apple pie. It was served warm with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Wait staff is friendly and helpful.
Medium Rare is less than half a block from the Cleveland Heights metro station. Off street parking near the restaurant can be hard to find. This is not the not venue to visit if you don't eat beef."

"I enjoyed my dining experience at the James Beard House. I attended a dinner features Chefs Karangis and Keehner from Union Square Events. The evening started with a reception featuring a series of passed hors d'oeuvres paired with a delicious champagne. Diners then moved into the dining room. I was assigned to a table that included the House photographer, first time diners and returning diners - we had a great time. All the dishes were delicious and the wine pairings complemented the respective dishes. After dessert was served the chefs and their staff entered the dining room and spoke with the diners and answered questions. The staff was accomodating and gracious. I look forward to attending another event at the James Beard House."
