I just had dinner at Tomate tonight. It was great. The pasta was al dente and I was quite impressed. Often I'm a skeptic of Italian food since I figure I can cook it my self, but for the first time in a while, I've found a place that has some rock'n food. I give this place a 9 out of 10. The food was perfect. Great presentation. Great quality. Quick service, though the only reason I don't give it a 10 is after the food was on the table, they forgot about us even after I asked for some olive oil for the bread. But that said, I'm still infatuated with the thought of their pasta with spinach and mushrooms.

I just picked up some Pho from Pho 75 in Rosslyn, VA. .  It's too bad they only do soup and no sides like summer rolls.  Still they have great food if you're on a budget.  Where in DC can 2 people eat for around $15.00...  See a review here

There's a good Ethiopian restaurant on Fenton, a block off of Georgia Ave. I can't remember the name, unfortunately! But they have a very authentic feeling indoor dining area and a rooftop deck for the nice nights. One suggestion stay away from the Ethiopian wine. Ick.

i think this might be it, and i think i may have been there once a while back.  and as i recall, it was very good.  plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.  although when i look at the site, none of the dishes seem familiar.  so maybe i made it all up in my head.  oh well, if i'm completely off my rocker, at least it looks good!   :smt073

Addis Ababa Ethiopian Restaurant
http://www.addisababarestaurant.com/newaddisababa/index.html
8233 Fenton St, Silver Spring, MD 20910
Telephone: (301) 589-1400
Category: Ethiopian
 
Silver Spring diners know Addis Ababa for its friendly atmosphere, courteous service and deep respect for the Ethiopian culinary tradition. In a city with the largest concentration of Ethiopian restaurants outside of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa restaurant is the shining beacon of Ethiopian tradition, culture, and cuisine.

Piratz Tavern
8402 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910
Telephone: 301-588-9001

"The tavern is a family oriented restaurant with a (obviously) pirate theme. The decor is pretty outrageous and the food and wine will be original, international and reasonably priced. We will have a full bar, live international music (reggae, moroccan/berber, pirate, etc.) and remain open at night as long as the county will allow. We have a fairly large terrace that has a caribbean/tropical theme. Our chef was born in the Canary Islands and raised in New Zealand and Portugal. "

They have excellent food, an awesome cheese-plate and the atmosphere on the patio the night we went was really very cool. Also, the one time we went, the servers were dressed up in pirate garb.

I can't afford all of this eating out stuff.
I buy groceries and cook... in my kitchen.
You know the room ...the one with the stove and fridge....and the microwave.

Thank god for the George Foreman grill !!!!!

The Good Stuff Eatery recently opened on 303 Pennsylvania Ave SE. Its farm raised beef/veggie burgers, homemade icecream with a gourmet edge.

So good!

Stacy's Coffee Shop
709 W. Broad St.
Falls Church, VA
(703) 538-6266

Formerly called Caffeine, Stacy's Coffee House is located in the same building as CD Cellar. They have great coffee, the best ice cream and a nice selection of sandwiches. The comfortable, bright atmosphere (including 3 couches and lots of artwork on the walls) is great for relaxing and evoking creativity.

i work (artsty stuff) in the building literally right next to that. good place.

Sabroso Grill (a new South American restaurant in Silver Spring, across the street from the AFI Theatre) just posted on CraigsList.org seeking local artists to display their work.

Interested artists are encouraged to set up an appointment to show samples of your work and even if they don't choose to show your work they offer a complimentary meal so there is no hard feelings.
I thought I'd re-post here for any "starving" artists on the artdc forum.
