Addie’s (77/100, 2010)

Addie's is a folksy, shambling house across the street from White Flint Mall in Rockville. I went with a (vegetarian) friend after doing some shopping. She is from the area and had heard good things. The dining rooms are small and funky and I was sure that at a place with a vibe like this there would be several options for a vegetarian - wrong. We shared a panzanella salad as an appetizer - chunks of rustic Italian bread with tomato and basil - it's a flavor profile you can't mess up! Addie's version was served with too much blue cheese, but after we removed some, it was very tasty. For my entree, I ordered a half chicken that was caramelized on the outside and very moist on the inside. It was served w/ roasted apples, a deliciously moist sweet potato bread, and a little microgreen salad with candied pecans. Overall, it was very good. My companion didn't have a lot of options to choose from, the one vegetarian entree is a collection of "fall vegetables". Luckily, they had a vegetarian ravioli appetizer that they agreed to do an entree portion of for her. It was a goat cheese ravioli with mushrooms, squash puree, and apples. And boy was it delicious - I was jealous! Best dish of the night. We decided to skip dessert.

Overall, the food is good, but the menu is limited. I might stop in again if I was in the area, but I wouldn't make a trip for it.
