Richard Sandoval’s Mango Tree DC opens in CityCenter Thurs. – A Look Inside and at the Menu

929 H Street, NW

From a press release:

“The original location is situated in the heart of Bangkok in a beautiful Thai house built almost 100 years ago during the reign of King Rama VI. The restaurant is named after the great mango tree planted in front of the former house.

Opening Date: January 15, 2015

Hours of Operation: Dinner service from 5 PM to 11 PM
Lunch service from 11 AM to 3 PM (starting Jan 19th)

Menu Description: Mango Tree will serve genuine Thai dishes from each of the four main culinary regions: rich and fully flavored dishes from the North, spicy cuisine from the Northeast, more mild dishes influenced by the Chinese cooking style from the Central region, and hot and spicy cuisine from the South. In each dish, one will find the artful blending of savory, sweet, sour and spice which delivers the harmonious taste in each bite, and Thai food is naturally medicinal, bringing health and vigor to the meal. Menu highlights include Tom Yum, a lemongrass and kaffir lime infused spicy and sour broth with Maine lobster or an array of mixed seafood Massaman Gae, Mussaman curry with slow cooked lamb shank and fingerling potato, and Goong Mung Gorn Phad Phong Karee, baked Maine lobster dressed in yellow curry powder with egg and onion, which has become a signature dish at Mango Tree. Some of the dishes are refreshed for contemporary tastes while others are classics, to be continuously enjoyed for generations.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
