for the input some of you gave with regards to my DC visit.

We did hit The Eastern Market and also the Georgetown Flea Market on Sunday. Both were great.

Our evening at Bistro Bis was great. We especially enjoyed the cheese selection. In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much that night that we decided to skip Citronelle the next night.

On the night that we were to have gone to Citronelle, we headed to the Four Corners plaza. We chose Cafe Viet over Four Sisters at the suggestion of a local poster. Oh, my gosh! My husband and I both love Vietnamese food and neither of us had any idea how much more there is to the cuisine other than what we've had in Cleveland and Detroit. We love it even more now! We had the app of baby clams and the green papaya salad with beef jerky. Unreal!!! The lardon-like pieces of pork fat in the baby clam dish were heavenly as was the whole preparation. I loved the sweetness to the beef jerky and the spiciness of the way the papaya was dressed. My husband then had the chicken wings and I had the caramel fish. Wow, we loved every bit of the experience!
