MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A talented husband-and-wife duo is behind DC's newest hipster hangout, which boasts a classic contemporary look—think bare tables and smooth floors. This setting is also the perfect match for its modern, edgy food, which meanders from the Middle East and Mediterranean to Asia. There is unabashed creativity unleashed in this kitchen, as in the oyster-fried mushroom, with mushroom powder serving as a tempura batter for a fried treat. Next up—the barbecue carrots. They're given the North Carolina treatment—rubbed with vinegar, then grilled to render them smoky and meaty—and served alongside a savory cornbread ice cream. Come Tuesdays for a flavorful focus group: it's when the kitchen tries out its latest creations in a four-course, well-priced format.
