Sometimes when you have been out too late and maybe had one too many drinks, you need an old favorite. Even though the DC DBGB is new it still fit the bill. And while it had my NY favorites, executed perfectly, there were slight differences which kept it from feeling like a chain.
Chop chop – romaine, avocado, shishito pepper, carrot, Asian pear, ginger-sesame dressing
Hand cut steak tartare
Tuna crudo – Harissa-sesame sauce, cucumber radish, crispy rice
Brioche French toast – spiced apple compote
Smoked salmon – everything bagel, cream cheese, caper, red onion
Tunisienne sausage – spicy lamb & mint merguez, lemon-braised spinach, chickpea
The Yankee – iceberg, tomato, vidalia onion, sesame bun
It has probably been years since I have had Indian food and other than the chai, this certainly made me wonder why it’s been so long! Unfortunately sleep deprivation has caught up to me and I can’t remember what all of the dishes were so a few are missing descriptions. They were delicious whatever they were!
Palak Chaat – crispy baby spinach, sweet yogurt, tamarind, date chutney
Cauliflower Bezule – mustard seeds, green chilis, curry leaves
Honey ginger scallops – burnt garlic, red pepper
