This Week In Reviews

Posted by Jason, Oct 03, 2004

This week Gabriella Boston of The Times reviews Coggins' Sandwich Manufactory in Foggy Bottom. Here is a short excerpt of her review:

"With the George Washington University campus so close, the clientele is almost 100 percent collegiate. If the rush during a recent Thursday evening is any indication, Coggins' is headed for success, overcoming the Atkins challenge and ample competition. Does it deserve it? Well, the industrial look is cute, the quality control good, the prices low, the service adequate and the sandwiches pretty good. So, the answer would have to be -- probably."
I've never been there, and I probably wont ever travel down to Foggy Bottom for sandwiches.

The Blade's Aaron Flynn reviews The Regent in Dupont Circle. The headline for the review says:

"On the outskirts of Dupont Circle, a Thai newcomer is mixing style and tradition with sometimes decent results. But there is room for improvement."
Personally, I am totally sick of Thai food as is Aaron from the sound of this review. I have yet to find on in the area that is good.

My idol at The Post gives Le Paradou 3 stars. Citing the reason for not giving it 4 stars being that the service is rough. If you read the user reviews at The Post as well, you will notice that this is a common theme.

Andale is reviewed by The Metro Weekly. Author David Garver praises their food and says "You'll want to experience Andale as soon as possible."
