Washington, DC – 7/10/16 – Kinship

While I don’t agree with the recent assertions that Washington DC is the restaurant city of the year, it very well may be the most improved.  After a very long and stressful work day Kinship provided a calm oasis in an extremely well designed space that did make me think “Am I really in DC?”  Overall a very solid meal with some unexpected and creative menu items like the lobster french toast which was certainly a loose interpretation but delicious.  My only small complaint would be that the amount of dashi gelee overwhelmed the tuna tataki but once I pushed the majority of it aside, a delicious dish.  If I lived in the neighborhood exactly the type of place where I would want to be a regular.

Yellowfin tuna tataki – spring onion and butter pickle salad, shiso tempura and dashi broth

Pan seared redfish – shrimp and ham hock jambalya

Sauteed atlantic halibut – spring asparagus, royal trumpets, potato confit and tarragon-asparagus emulsion

Parker house rolls

Beef rib eye

Lobster french toast
