To lead things off this week, I'll start with Tom Sietsema's review of Sweet Ginger, an Asian fusion restaurant in Vienna, VA which, according to Tom, was about as ho-hum as the entire Asian food scene in this area. He says that the best thing about his meals there have been the appetizers. He gives it 2 out of 4 stars.
Eve Ziebert, also of the Washington Post, reviews Meyhane. Meyhane is a Turkish restaurant near Eastern Market in DC. Eve seems to like Meyhane although she does not seem to come out and say it is a complete winner.
Surprisingly, Divino Lounge in Bethesda was reviewed last week by Corinna Lothar or The Times. I had not heard of Divino Lounge until I went to Taste of Bethesda last week. I remember they had a great Argentine sausage. Corinna does not really express an opinion in this article, which I find to be resounding pattern to reviews in The Times. I did find it interesting that for $10 you can get dancing lessons on Wednesday and Friday.
The Washington Blade reviews 2 Amys. God. Where the hell have they been??
Albert Eisele of The Hill reviews Le Petit Mistral in McLean, VA. He gives it a pretty good rating - 3.5 domes. According to Albert, owner and Chef Joseph Alonso has worked in such restaurants as the Four Seasons and the Occidental.
