In addition to the irresistible baguettes and sourdough here, there are daily bread specials. An uni grilled cheese slathers raclette, caramelized onion, and fermented chili powder between brioche; while a labneh roasted vegetable salad is wholesome with cauliflower, carrot, and chickpeas. A citrus savarin with almond liqueur makes for a divine finish.
This modern Malaysian restaurant in Columbia Heights is just over a year old, a partnership between Kendrick Wu and chef James Wozniuk, whose gastropub Thirsty Crow sits under the 80-seat restaurant. On the menu are satays, pineapple curry, fried chicken with curry leaves, and the classic beef rendang.
