What Are Locals Saying?
The best meal of 2013 so far, simply perfect in every way. This cute little restaurant in Capital Hill belies an amazingly sophisticated kitchen with ingredients foraged locally so that each day’s menu is as fresh and local as can be. We opted for the 5 course tasting and one person in our party had severe allergies which were accommodated without any problems. Another one was vegetarian and despite a very meat heavy menu, they also modified each dish without the meat. I highly recommend the wine pairings which included obscure varietals I never would have chosen and perfectly complimented our meal. The vegetarian ravioli was so incredible, we actually ordered seconds – it wasn’t on the menu but we had asked for a pasta with no meat.
The cocktail list while small was very creative. Loved the ambiance, especially the bathrooms (sounds weird but you just have to try).
The service was excellent, not overly solicitous but very competent. Our server was knowledgeable of the menu and all the ingredients in each dish.
Yes, it’s pricey but you get what you pay for and it was worth every penny. Cannot wait to go back. Review Via Mishel F. on Yelp.
