Always a favorite stop in DC!
grilled scallops – buttermilk consomme, country ham, turnips & cider
grilled brassicas – n’juba hollandaise, mint chimichurri & fried shallots
winter squash cooked in the fire – bitter greens, pecan, virginia maple & brown butter vinaigrette
Much of the improvement in the DC dining scene can be attributed to the opening of branches of restaurants from elsewhere. And while I try to avoid places that I can find at home, in this case having a Momofuku only a short walk from the convention center was pretty fantastic.
Once again Bon Appetit’s best new restaurants list has not lead me astray. The influence of Chef Langhorne’s time at McCrady’s is definitely apparent. Such a cozy vibe just perfect for a place with only a wood fire. Everything was wonderful and a repeat visit will certainly be made my next time in DC.
