Hi all,

A little over a year ago I was bitten by the good knife bug. At least "good" by my standards--I know a lot of people on here have some incredible knives.

Just curious--anyone else in the Washington, DC, area?

They're good, but we have much better food than that.

you should have. Two people that like knives, good food, and the Minnesota Vikings in one room? What can go wrong?

Other than QB Christian Ponder sucking it up...nothing.

There is a chance I will be moving back in the area in the next couple of years. The job search right now is in Minneapolis, DC area, and Portland ME.

Fair enough. What do you think are your best three (or so) dishes?

A&S's shrimp and grits is as close to an IPR as you can get.

Their house-made charcuterie platters are awesome, especially w/ the grilled bread.

Desserts are different, and really good.

whats IPR?

Our charcuterie is real good. Got a couple hog legs hanging since last year. Some chorizos, pepperone, coppas, lomo, guanciale. A fair amount of duck rillette, pork pates.

We're closed for renovations right now, reopening on the 19th with a new menu. Our dishes change fairly often based on whats good from the farmers we're working with. The round I'm looking forward to a braised short rib served with a split marrow bone. A confit duck cassoulet w/ toulouse sausage, and a sunny side up duck egg w/ a pig head croquette.

Tkern might need to stop by for any or all of those new dishes! Sounds amazing. Time off during renovations?

Great to know so many members in the hood.

Btw, have any of you in the DC area visited the new food exhibit at the American History Museum? I used to like looking at Julia Child's kitchen and her pots and knives, but they renovated that area and it reopened in November with a larger food theme.

I will have to check it out in a couple of weeks and report back. Saw the original but not the new one. My children think she is cool so it should be an easy sell.

Went by the JC exhibit on Sun. Very nice as was the whole food to table exhibit. I think her obsession had more to do with pots and pans than knives:D. The one thing I didn't like about the kitchen design was she had a nice 14 inch thick butcher block between her countertop on the left and the wall ovens on the right. On the front of the BB she had some of her knives and the handles went up past the top of the BB. Since it was surrounded on the other three sides by the kitchen wall, counter top and the oven it was unusable as a cutting surface unless she removed all the knives!
They were showing old episodes which were fun to watch and gave me a chance to rest my feet. My children love her shows so it kept them happy too.
