Gharer Khabar, 5151 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA, 703-973-2432
A new Bangladeshi place which isn’t quite ready, but is open and excellent. I found they were surprised when a) I walked in the door, and b) I asked for a menu. After a bit of Monty Python back and forth a’la “Cheese Shop,” I discovered that currently the menu only serves two kinds of biryanis. But they’re both very good, extremely fragrant and delicate. I am told at some point the main chef is coming back from Bangladesh, then we will see what happens. But right now this is a place I will revisit. It is also one of the two or three cheapest places on this whole list.
