So, here's the scoop.
I went back to Grace's Mandarin at the National Harbor: Wowed again.
The view is great during the day, and the lighting inside is something to behold in the evening.
$5.95 for a bowl of hot and sour soup? I scoffed, until I tried it. This is not the strangely-viscous stuff you get at your corner Chinese carryout. This is worth it. Try it if you get the chance.
The sushi was fresh and tasty. I was there about 1:30pm for lunch and the main dining floor was fairly full. The staff seems to be coming up to speed and I'm hoping that they'll be all polished by the time spring rolls around. You'll need reservations as this place is going to be the place to eat at the harbor.
Until next time...
