We went to this restaurant in the evening and sat outside. There wine list is ok, but not as extensive as it could be for location. We ended up having mussels and pasta. The mussels were very good and the broth was great. The pasta was good but on the heavier side. I would be back, especially for the mussels. More

Contemporary American | Georgetown, District of Columbia

Returned for another good waterside dining experience that was marred only by the very loud music and "lounge lizard" behavior from one relatively small boat docked near our table that we have seen there before. why do the restaurants there tolerate this (i.e., noise ordinance please!!!) More

Tico has some great appetizers and desserts, there could be more options for large plates. There werren't a lot of "wow" dishes on the menu but it's a great place to go in a group and share some small plates. We had a good time, though I wish they would make their margaritas from scratch instead of using the premade mixer. More

London Curry House

$$$$
Indian | Alexandria, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Started with several appetizers to share between six people. Somosas were very good, 2 per order, as we're the Tibetan dumplings, Mo Mo and their tomato, sesame dipping sauce. The kale chat, a plate of melt in your mouth accompanying perfect spicy notes, was delicious. As was the Jhaal Muri, an unusual, but clever twist on bale puri. All the appetizer were well presented and the rest of dinner just got better. Main dishes we had included Lamb Vindaloo, with decent but not excessive heat and a very tasty Seafood Curry. The London and Moghul curries while good, were less spicy, to accommodate varying tastes. The curries came with rice. I like heat, so added sliced green chilies as needed. But the variety of dishes really did not need anything, the chef got each one spot on. Sides included excellent Mutter Paneer, Mushroom Mutter Makhani, Bindi Masala and Chana Masala. We rounded out the table with Dal Makhani, Mirchi Baingan, Raita and a bread basket of different naans. You could easily choose all the vegetarian dishes and have as good as experience. Everyone was stuffed after sharing so much, so ended with coffee and a single Ras Malai. There were two decent sized, tasty, flattened balls and sauce, enough for everyone to have a bite. We also enjoyed several cocktails which were all good. Each of the courses came out piping hot and together. With curries and sides conveniently presented on a tray, so much easier to pass around. Staff was attentive refilling water, taking away dishes etc but did hover. Plenty of street parking around the restaurant, definitely requires a return visit. Looking forward to tasting the tandoori board and a few other favorites next time. More
