You can see best Carryouts here, best Thai here, best liquor stores here, best Ramen here, best Bars here, best Indian and Pakistani here, best Italian/Pizza/Deli here, best Mexican/Salvadoran/Central/Cuban/Latin here and best burgers/fries here.
The options on both fronts have improved so much in the last 5 years, I’m very eager to see your responses. I’m looking for all kinds of breads, pastries, and of course bagels. Who are your favorites?

Ed. Note: Rejoice textdoc et al, after a long and bloody neighborhood boundary battle I’m ceding back the 3600 of Georgia Ave to Park View. I haven’t anymore fight left in me and at this point I don’t want to confuse folks. So there you have it, I surrender. I surrender.

Thanks to 20003ist for the Greek Deli closure update last night: “Signs are off.” And Kevin quickly confirmed “Reopening tomorrow.” [Today].

Boom! That was fast. Thanks to George for sending: “Just opened up today per the staff”
But seriously, this sounds bonkers all around.
“At around 1pm today, the manager of the Chopt in Union Station assaulted a customer upset that he’d been waiting half an hour for a salad he’d called ahead for that they were late to make. The Manager tried to take his phone, made a mess, and wrestled w/the Customer. The customer was allowed to leave after police were called. The Manager was taken away in Handcuffs.
It was insane. All the guy did was get upset that his salad was late, and say he was gonna write a bad review. Both of which he’s entitled to do. The Manager went nuts on him.”
