Week In Reviews

cusbah-thrillist-150.jpgTim Carman steps in for Tom Sietsema to handle First Bite column duties this week, filing an early look at H Street's Cusbah. Carman is amazed by the transformation of the neighborhood, which now has what might be its first Indian restaurant. It's still early, he notes, but so far the results are mixed as "the 'authentic' spicing of my small plate of palak paneer was more Midwestern than subcontinental (though tasty in its mildness), while the chicken tikka appetizer was as dry as dog kibble. The lamb vindaloo, however, was as fiery as advertised." [WaPo]
