Help a NYer: Places to eat near Rockville/Gaithersburg
Please help out a helpless NYer. I have reason to be in the Rockville/Gaithersburg area semi-regularly over the next several months, but I have no idea where to eat. When I was in town this weekend I followed chowhound and other recommendations to Tako Grille and Joe's Noodle House, both of which I found incredibly disappointing. I know there is supposed to be great ethnic food around Rockville and other parts of the Maryland suburbs, but I don't know where to find it (and I don't know who to trust). Can anyone give me some suggestions? I eat everywhere in NY and price point doesn't matter. It can be ethnic or fancy, scenic or drab, but it has to have great food. Suggestions?
On a related note, is there anywhere to get great crabs without driving to Baltimore or further?
For good (but NOT NYC style) pizza or calzone, try Zio's on Shady Grove Road just east of 270.
The Soft shell crabs at Bob's Noodles 66 (Taiwanese) is a great preparation. Don't know if SS crabs are all that popular in NYC, so this could be something different for you?
Sorry you didn't like JNH. It has many fans through the years on Chowhound, especially me. What did you have there?
Here are some recent conversations that should help:
Do you want to pick crabs or eat crabcakes? For crabcakes, try Bobby's in Rockville Town center.
