    Marigold Kitchen is actually extending their own Dining Days an extra week, until August 9th. Nice.

              I went to Nan last night for dinner and it was fabulous. I am a Baltimore Hound in town for work and this was my first Nan experience. I will definitely be back. The hostess is wonderful and friendly, and my Dining Days dinner was swoon worthy. I had a snow pea/bean sprout salad, curry encrusted lamb chops (YUM), and a lime/coconut/lychee sorbet. I highly recommend the lamb chops and the sorbet. Plus, my waiter was adorable :-) Love this place.

                Went to Marigold Kitchen's extended Dining Days on Saturday night. It was the first time I haven't tipped at a restaurant.

                The food was average to bad, depending on the course, service was atrocious (both slow and rude), it was warmer inside than out (maybe the a/c was broken?)...I could keep going. Will never go back.
