Mark's Duck House

About 15 minutes from D.C., this small Cantonese restaurant is renowned for its lunchtime dim sum, as well as the house specialty: roasted Peking duck, served in a scallion pancake with homemade plum sauce. Run by Hong Kong native Frederick Mark and his wife Esther, the no-frills dining room contains a few Asian-inspired art pieces and a handful of circular tables topped with Lazy Susans. The regular menu has some 400 items, such as pan-fried flounder with ginger soy sauce, while the dim sum menu includes traditional options like shrimp noodle crêpes and fried taro dumplings.


From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Almost half of this charming new Village restaurant is a market that sells ingredients on the New American menu—from industrial-size cans of imported tomatoes to ground beef from LaFrieda (purveyor for <strong>Shake Shack</strong>). No one seems to shop there, but the space is always crowded with people waiting to get into the window-walled dining room for the elevated comfort food of chefs Joey Campanaro (co-owner of <strong>Little Owl</strong>) and Mike Price.

We loved: Gnocchi with short ribs in Parmesan broth; chicken with hazelnut butter.
