While there are lots of threads for heavily reviewed restaurants on Chow, tell your fellow Chowhounds in a brief your review of new/unexpected (pleasant and unpleasant) out of the way places you may have visited this week in the Washington, DC area.
For example, this week my girlfriend took me to Ren's Ramen on Arlington Blvd in Bethesda. Ren's is attached to Daruma Japanese Grocery, which has a nice, but limited selection of canned, frozen and a few fresh Japanese specialties. Ren's only has a few selections (supplemented by Japanese take away in the refrigerated case at Daruma), however as a neophite to Japanese noodle houses, I particularly enjoyed the large bowl of rich, miso infused broth with fresh, tasty ramen noodles. You could taste in each bite the granular bits of beef and the presence of pork in each spoonful. The atmosphere was very casual, however the smiles on the other (mostly Japanese) patrons confirmed my impression that for $10 my bowl of ramen was a good choice.
So what is your food find/review this week?
