  • Rasika

    Washington, DC
    Cocktail Bar / Indian Restaurant
    Rasika - Cocktail Bar | Indian Restaurant in Washington, DC.
    Jan 16, 2013 Awesome Food! A DC Fave "Rasika is an Indian restaurant, but not anything like other Indian restaurants I've been to. Other than the naan, you would not recognize most of the menu items. But have faith in them, because they are delicious! Unfortunately, everyone else in DC seems to agree, so it's nearly impossible to get a reservation. I think you have to plan weeks or maybe even months in advance for that. But that doesn't mean you can't get in. If you're willing to sit at the bar, or wait for a mini table in the bar area, you can make this a spontaneous dinner event. I've had success with that on multiple occasions. And worst case scenario, if the wait is too long, you can wander to one of the many other restaurants in Penn Quarter. As far as food recommendations go, just ask your waitstaff - they'll hook you up, probably starting with the Palak Chaat, an interesting crunchy and sweet spinach dish. The atmosphere at Rasika is pretty high end and sophisticated. It draws a somewhat mature crowd - 30s to 50s, well dressed professionals, politicos, and trendy couples out for date night. Most people are there for the food vs. the bar scene, but it does stay crowded and lively well into the night. One other thought on Rasika -- don't rule it out just because you don't normally like Indian food. It's a whole different cuisine than what you're thinking. " hide

  • Quench

    Cocktail Bar / Restaurant
    Quench - Cocktail Bar | Restaurant in Washington, DC.
    Jan 16, 2013 Urban Cocktails and Artisan Eats Made Their Way to the 'Burbs "Quench is a very welcome addition to the suburbs of Montgomery County. Just because we moved out of the City or District doesn't mean we lost our appetite for urban cocktails and eclectic food! Apparently, the owner of Quench agrees. He created an urban oasis for us right off of the 270 spur! While you may be skeptical when pulling into the shopping center, I assure you that this is not your suburban Olive Garden experience. In contrast, it gives the District's bars and restaurants a run for their money. I recommend trying one of the creatively delicious cocktails - believe mine was infused with chili or jalapeno - there was something spicy and delicious in there. My girlfriend opted for one of the lo-cal cocktails, which also didn't disappoint (now that's a diet I can sign up to!). The menu changes with the seasons and the chef's inspiration. Some of my favorites on the food side have been their fries, crispy chickpeas, and those crazy good desserts - like the homemade twinkie! Yes, I said HOMEMADE twinkie! I'll also give kudos to this place for their creativity in events - top of the list is the Food Truck Fridays, where different food trucks pull up to add to the cuisine options - How cool is that? They've also hosted DJ parties and competitions (on Friday nights), cooking classes, comedians, etc. Even a kid-friendly cartoon brunch on Saturdays - they thought of everything! The atmosphere at Quench is urban, but not over-the-top chic; it's still pretty casual and comfortable. The crowd is a range of 20s to 40s, but definitely not a fraternity-type college crowd - it's more mature and sophisticated. Afterall, it is in the suburbs, where you get more young couples who have moved out there for family and/or job reasons. I've also seen the Ladies Night crowd, out for dinner and drinks, and the after-work young professionals, presumably coming from the Shady Grove medical facilities and office parks. I also know someone who rented the place out for a private party - it's a good space for that as you can take it all over, have the bar to yourself, etc. Overall, I highly recommend Quench - save yourself the trip into the District and get your urban vibe on in Rockville!" hide

    "Thanks for sharing this gift guide, party earth! I appreciate that it's not the same old gift ideas, and it definitely brought to mind multiple people who I need to shop for. Probably getting my mom the Ollo clip camera, even at the risk of facilitating more awkward family photos! Love the Dry Bar blowout idea for one of my girlfriends. And David's tea for my work colleagues - those are some seriously fun flavor choices - think I'll go with Sleigh Ride and the Chocolate Chili Chai. Happy holidays and happy shopping to you!" hide
