A First Look at Teak Wood in Logan Circle

For a place that had the chutzpah to open directly across 14th Street NW from the regrettably named Thaitanic, newcomer Teak Wood is an awfully meditative space, as if it's going to squash the competition with prayer. The first thing that greets you upon entering is a sleek, decidedly slim Buddha carved out of — […]

Wheaton’s Nava Thai Now Serves Up Sushi, Too

It was hard enough swallowing the idea that my beloved hole-in-the-wall Nava Thai had moved into more spacious digs, which essentially forced the owners to expand their concise, noodle-soup-heavy menu to cater to the expansive new location.

So What’s the Deal? Is the Noodle House’s Name Song Phat or Mi La Cay?

The firefighter-yellow banner to the left of the entrance tells you the restaurant is called Mi La Cay Noodle House, a name echoed by the neon lights above the short set of stairs leading to the place. But then you look to the right (see pic below) and notice another sign hovering over the establishment. It reads: Song Phat Noodle […]

Y'all tore into the assignment like a pack of wolves on a dead carcass.  I received Tweets, personal e-mails, and lots of suggestions via the […]

Seeking Nominees for City Paper’s Inaugural D.C. Dish Hall of Fame

The Margherita at 2Amys: Does it make the cut? Earlier this week, I was noshing on the roast chicken at Palena Cafe, reveling once again in Frank Ruta's ability to add and coax flavors from this generous, succulent portion of breast, wing, and leg meat. That's when the thought struck me: This is, hands-down, one […]

Y&H Straw Poll: When A Restaurant Moves, Does It Affect Your Experience?

This week's Young & Hungry column is devoted to restaurants that have moved recently, including the much-beloved Nava Thai in Wheaton, and how that affects your dining experience. I come down firmly on the side of change. A move changes a restaurant forever. It stops being whatever it was originally and becomes something new, even […]
