cafe asia is ok. the place in pentagon city is kind of ok. neither is great, though.

there was (or maybe still is) a place in ballston that does the conveyor belt thing. not great either, but i liked the approach where you keep eating and at the end they figure out your tab based on the number and color of plates you've stacked up.

unfortunately, at 205 lbs and on a 4 day weightlifting split, if i did that now, i would end up with a ridiculuous tab.

Yeah I know. It just made me instantly think of that song.

.

The sushi place attached to Regal Gallery Place has that. Unremarkable sushi, but if you really like the conveyer belt...

If my friends didn't want to go there, I'd have left. What a fucking waste of time and money. I'll never go back there again.

Old Glory is disgusting. Rocklands on Wisconsin in Glover Park is much better BBQ.

Sushi Taro is really good.

Wok 'N Roll on H between 6th and 7th (Chinatown) surprisingly has good sushi. I live in the neighborhood and eat their sushi at least once per week.

Sushi Ko on Wisconsin in Glover Park is pretty good also, but not as good as the two above, IMO.

Based upon the recommendation of a foodie and the Washington Post's Sunday Source, I visited the recently opened Adams Morgan outpost of Alberto's Pizzeria. I don't know what Chicago thin-crust pizza is, but I know that it's good. Really, really good. Definitely in the same ballpark as Pizzeria Paradiso and Matchbox. Sadly, it will be lost on the drunken hoards getting a jumbo slice after the bars let out at 3 AM.

Walked by there last night and saw a couple of people eating at the window. I didn't know anything about the place but thought that their pizza looks enticing. I'll have to make it back there to try some. Probably not on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. I hate fighting those fucking drunken idiots for a slice of pizza, regardless of how good it tastes. We went to an Ethiopian place called Meskerem last night in Adams Morgan. I've never had Ethiopian food before, but the food served there seems a bit under-spiced. We had various stewed meats, including chicken, lamb, beef, etc. Afterwards, we made it too Soussi and had a few drinks and a bowl of hookah. Man, I love that thing. I'll have to get one for da house.

Got to eat at Sushi-Ko this week, which remains one of my favorite sushi eats on the east coast.

Also got to head back to Comet Ping-Pong for a second time. I heard the place had really turned around since last year and I'd say that's pretty correct. Had a great time, the food was perfect and the service was there. I might have a new pre-show hangout.

Restaurant Week is coming up soon. A lot of the participating restaurants fill up quickly, so you may want to make reservations soon.

Again, if you can get ino the DC suburbs, into Rockville, there are some really great restaurants. I know most people wouldn't travel into MD for good food, but there are some really great places to eat.

Old Siam
Benjarong
Taste of Saigon
Sushi House
Bombay Bistro

Just to name a few.

I'll add a vote for Addie's in Bethesda (or is it technically Rockville?). Love it.

Hey, gosurface, some of us live in Maryland. But even I don't go to Rockville -- erm, "North Bethesda" -- if I can help it.

t_j, give us a review on indique heights; I've never been, but I'm always looking for good indian food.

Is this the same as the Indique near the Uptown? It's good, although a bit upscale updated. I also like the Bombay Club, although it's also a bit removed from traditional Indian food.

My wife and I ate there one night and won't go back just because of the horrible service. I don't remember the food being all that special--but not bad by any means.

But the service was shit. I ordered a drink (I don't remember what) and what they brought me was not it (wrong color). It may have been Pernod. I pointed out that it was the wrong thing and the waiter went away, came back, and said, "we don't have that." Well duh, then why did you lie to me and try to pass off something else as my drink?
