Best restaurants that don't take reservation on Open Table or City Eats
I mostly determine whether to eat based on reservations available. I know there are some really good restaurants that simply don't do online reservations but I don't want to overlook them. So please share your top non-online restaurants. The ones that come to my mind are:
Eat the Rich/Southern Efficiency/Mockingbird Hill
Lots of Asian ones:
Hong Kong Palace/Uncle Liu's
Bangkok Golden III
Bob's Shanghai/Noodle 66
Very sad what has happened to Zenebech. I tried to go on a Saturday night a few weeks ago, and there was a line of 10 people waiting for a table!
It's probably due to all those new places on that block/corner...Good for business, but sad for those of us who were used to walking in to Zenebech on a whim!
I ended up going to Axum on 9th Street instead, which was pretty good.
My top five are in my profile:
Joe's Noodle House
Oohhs and Aahhs - especially the shrimp and grits, broiled crab cake, and the lemon pepper wings, but hard to resist the short ribs as well.
Myanmar - ginger salad for sure
Pimento Grill - oxtail brown stew, curry chicken, cabbage peas and rice are must orders.
