We came upon this fine small restaurant in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood while visiting Washington, D.C. The atmosphere is welcoming: attractive amateur murals, candlelight, friendly staff. The food was well-prepared, tasty, and a real bargain. My roast lamb plate had five big chops and excellent sauce. At just over $20., this would be hard to replicate anywhere else in the city. My wife's fish was similarly good--as were the desserts. I have severe problems with black pepper--a nuisance as it is so widely used--but the chef was completely agreeable about fixing my lamb without using any. Fourchette is quiet and relaxing, but it has the added benefit of being located in one of the most fun-loving areas in the District. After dinner, check out the numerous clubs and boutiques along 18th Street. Really good food, and a great night out.
