Quick Feeding: Kliman Not Too Hot on Bethesda Eating

Todd Kliman reports in his Washingtonian chat: Carole Greenwood has apparently left Bethesda's Food Wine and Co., "the kind of place you love when you walk in, enjoy after 30 minutes, tolerate after 45, resent after an hour, and hate by the time you get the bill." It seems that Kliman doesn't think too highly […]

Michel Richard’s Fancy Cheesesteak Makes Me Miss Provolone

Michel Richard has some balls. Inox’s locked doors, darkened suburban office buildings, and empty tables were testaments to the economic environment his new restaurant faced. And yet, the longtime D.C. celebrity chef threw his toque blanche into the Tysons Corner ring, currently wrapped up in endless road and Metrorail construction. He opened Michel, serving up […]

Curdling News: The Overuse of Cheese in Bar Food

My weekly trips to Tyson’s Corner have me eating more than my fair share of Chef Geoff’s burgers lately. The namesake sandwich costs only $5 during happy hour and is competently prepared; requesting medium results in a faintly pink and juicy patty nearly every time. My only beef? A second slice of cheese. On a […]

Sietsema Tweet: Inox Closed Last Night

All the speculation and rumor-mongering can apparently now stop. Late last night WaPo's Tom Sietsema Tweeted the following: Sad news: "Tonight is our last night." That's chef Jon Mathieson, telling me that Inox is closing. This, I hope, vindicates Todd Kliman, who first broke the news Thursday night via Twitter and who took some online […]

More Rumors on Inox’s Demise

Late yesterday, the Washingtonian's Todd Kliman sent out a Tweet heard 'round the world — or at least 'round the D.C. dining community. He wrote: Inox in Tysons will be closing tomorrow, according to a trusted source. Kliman floated a similar rumor back in February, which Inox chef/owner Jon Mathieson quickly shot down. It didn't […]

Gordon Ramsay Spotted Loitering the Streets of Georgetown

The dude in the white t-shirt is Gordon Ramsay. Really. This may mean something. It may mean nothing. But one of Y&H's many foot soldiers — OK, he's actually a friend of Carol Blymire's, aka Alinea at Home — spotted British bad boy Gordon Ramsay roaming the streets of Georgetown on Saturday. Given that Ramsay's […]
