I finally noticed this week, that The Post is the only newspaper that actually creates a new web page for each review they publish online. All of the other online newspapers update the same page every week. This is a problem for me because my links to these articles become out of date every week. So if you are looking at my old review recaps and the links don't work, this explains why. It is not because I am completely making these reviews up in my head. Anyway, on to this week.
The Blade has completely removed their dining section from the online version of their newspaper. Maybe it's because they don't have a food critic anymore. Maybe they would hire me? Or they could just link to DCFoodies.com instead...
The Times this week reviewed La Mona Lisa, and Italian restaurant in Annapolis? Someone needs to remind these guys that the Washington Times is a DC newspaper. Summing up the review with the last couple sentences:
The restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two, or with close friends. Just don't expect it to be a cheap night out.
The Metro Weekly, which has an online dining section that I am really starting to respect, reviewed an Indian restaurant this week - Connaught Place in Fairfax, VA. David Garver writes:
This is Indian cooking of the old school, traditional dishes from a variety of the nation's regions executed with exceptional care. You'll not find the contemporary flourishes of trendy Indian-American places (such as Indique in Cleveland Park, for instance) but rather the steady hand of centuries of culinary custom.
Mmmmm. Sounds good to me. Now how do you get to Fairfax? :) Just looking at the photography in this article makes me want to go there and try their rogan josh.
And finally, The Post just linked to Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide this week. Some restaurants on the list worth noting: Cashion's Eat Place, Palena, Restaurant Eve (I desperately need to go to this place), Heritage India, 2 Amys, and Ray's the Steaks (also, dying to go here as well).
