Best service of any restaurant I?ve ever been to. The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and incredibly friendly. We?ve been several times before, but went on Aug 28 2010, loved it so much that we decided to have brunch and dinner there on Aug 29.
The bone marrow starter was the highlight of the meal. The Foie Gras wasn?t as traditional as I would have liked and I wouldn?t order it again. Tuna Tartar was very good. Anchovies were really good, but I?m biased because I love anchovies. We asked them to filet the whole fish of the day, to make it easier to eat, and the duck breast was also excellent. The food was on par with CityZen and better than Komi for less money. They don?t have a tasting menu, so we ordered a few starters, mains, and sides and shared.
The restaurant has an excellent wine list with several great options by the glass. Probably the best wine list in DC. I?d recommend the Ramey if you want a well balanced, full bodied red wine.
You have to start brunch with the fresh croissants. They serve three warm croissants with honey, butter, and some preserves on the side. They are truly outstanding. I usually order the backed eggs or the beef rib hash. Both are great.
