(Double) Five Bites on Friday

The Five Bites lists have been rolling in, so much so that you'll get two for the price of one for the next few weeks as I work through a backlog. Thanks for your enthusiastic response and all the delicious lists!

• First up for today's double feature are five items from Alex Kara Worgaftik.

1. Costolette di agnello con aceto balsamico e miele (lamb chops with balsamic vinegar honey sauce) at Al Crostino (at right)

2. Lobster burger at Central

3. Prime New York strip steak with creamed kale, potato leek pave, sweet onion rings and ham hock bordelaise at Vidalia

4. Medium guacamole made tableside at Rosa Mexicano

5. Koko Kamikaze (a grown-up spin on the bar shot, made with housemade pineapple and coconut infused vodka) at Merkado


• Next up is Mary Beth Albright, who writes an excellent blog about eating locally produced foods called Local Feast. Her five are made primarily with ingredients from within 200 miles of D.C.

1. Potted rabbit rillette with violet mustard and thyme at Blue Duck Tavern (chef's table pictured at right)

2. Melon and country ham salad with grape tomatoes and parsley at Hook

3. Tempura fried, cheese-stuffed squash blossom at Locanda

4. Heirloom tomato salad with tomato sorbet at Poste

5. Pulled Amish chicken salad at Equinox


Five Bites is a weekly opportunity for you to tell Metrocurean readers which dishes you're enjoying around town. E-mail five of your favorite dishes or drinks and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean@gmail.com.

Almost all of this week's list makes me hungry, yet the only one I have sampled is the Amish chicken salad at Equinox (great taste and presentation).
