Hi, I read about this site in the new yorker, and I think it's just great. I'm a vegetarian (sorry) but here are a few of my local favorites: Curry Laksa soup at cafe asia w/ tofu and vegetables-- nice and spicy, I eat it at least once a week. Raku in dupont or bethesda also has some good veg. options, try the bowl of fire and the seaweed salad. The Vegetable Garden on rockville pike is consistently great-- very fresh vegtables and always nicely done. For sunday brunch I like the Clarendon Grill near clarendon metro-- the hash browns are just the right amount of crisp and grease! Has anyone checked out the Arturo Restaurant on Washington bvld?? The hand-made sign intrigues me-- I have a feeling I'm either going to get the best meal of my life or the worst case of food poisoning ever.
