: In DC I ate at Nora. In upstairs gallery. Food arrived luke warm. I asked the waitperson what the other table was eating; he couldn't tell me. Lighting and setting were not great. Pricey ($80 each of four: with 2 appetizers shared, 2 bottles of wine and 3 deserts). My expectatiobns were not met given the press. The Bombay Club for Inddian food was very good and reasonably priced. Waitperson made excellent suggestions. The vegetarian sampler was exquiste. The Cafe at the National Gallery was not bad at all; good torist mix, selectioon and if you l;ooked could create a resonable lunch experience. They need to improve the wine selection however.
: New York: Grand Central Oyster Bar was agreat space but the lobster salad was over priced for the quality. I'll take the Stage Deli at 11;30 PM for a pastrami, tukey, rare raost beef sandwich with russian dressing and cold slaw. With a knish on the side and a cel-ray soda. Vatan was an inteseting all you caneat $20 fixed dinner. Not tTabla which was very good in the Bread Bar. Brunch at the trMet Trustees Dining Room was overarated and over priced. I missed out on Union Cafe and the Cioach House this trip.
