My party of 5 arrived at our appointed time of 7:30pm to be seated immediately. We enjoyed some cocktails and wine prior to dinner. Dinner was above average among the 5 of us. My prime ny strip steak with cauliflower mousseline, broccoli, szechuan peppercorn sauce was far from excellent. On the other hand, my son's and his girlfriend's duck bolognese, green fazzoletti, pecorino tartufo, garlicky rapini was far superior. Others really enjoyed their mussels and salads. I would rate this within the top 30 restaurants of DC behind, Michel Richard Citronelle, Blue Duck Tavern, Kinkeads, Braserrie Beck, Tabard Inn, Mendocino's, Minibar Cafe Atlantico, Capital Grill and others,
