I just started a new job in Bethesda. It has been too cold for me to explore too much, but what I've noticed so far is that there seem to be a lot of "locations" of other restaurants nearby--Jaleo, Raku, McCormick and Schmick's, etc. I have heard the injunctions against the Bethesda Jaleo. Are they all true? What is Thyme Square? Levante's (same as the place on 19th)? Brown Bag? Anything that I must seek out for lunch?
I had a catfish sandwich at Louisiana Express the other day and ran into some bones and a too-pickly sauce. Anything else to get there?
What about coffee? I have gotten it at Quartermaine, but I like flavored coffee sometimes and I don't like sugar in my coffee, so those syrups are not an option.
There's a lot to explore, but thought you guys might have some good suggestions off the bat.
