First and foremost, unlike most Bethesda establishments the curb appeal of this place was tired at best. We actually walked by it once before realizing where we were. A nondescript sign through creaky doors lead us into the tiniest dining rooms I’ve seen since Paris. Our waitress led us back to another roomier dining room that was made to look bigger with a wall of antique mirrors. Still though, it was a small place with a window into the kitchen…intimate and light, but not dark and fancy.
Dessert was a circus. We all ordered something and then once they arrived we all wanted a piece of everything so we passed the plates around the table in circle. Royce won that contest by ordering the Chocolate Bread Pudding. I went with the Beignets, and Mike and Rachel had the Grapefruit Sabayon and the Profiteroles.
All and all it was a great night out…Mike and Rachel are fun to explore restaurants with as their level of pretension is low, and they love to share and try new things. Next up is our favorite local Italian place…DaMarco’s.
