Walked into a non-descriptive store front with vinyl drapes sheltering the entrance only to see a large fish with bulging eyes staring at me, looking back at my wife thinking Oh, Oh another one of my husbands off the wall food places.
The room was full and we were seated not before we walked through a noisy eating area through a wine cellar into a very cozy area for dinner. I was wondering what I had gotten myself into and then the waiter approached saying the Blacksalt was one of five topped restaurants in DC.
The wine list was extensive just like the wine cellar, the waiter suggested we start on the right hand page of the menu suggesting something cold, something hot and then the main course. Often when I go some place I ask the waiter for a suggestion, he choose scallops with sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts in a yummy light delicate sauce. Personally I never order scallops but these scallops were to die for. Had I know I would have ordered this appetizer for my dinner. But then dinner arrived Mahi Mahi on a bed of veal with caramelized onions in a brown sugar red wine sauce. My wife doesn't like fish very much nor does she like onions. I looked across the table and she was cutting her onion in half not once but twice. She even remarked how much she liked the veal and fish combination. My wife, it couldn't be, but there she was eating with pure joy on her face.
If you get the opportunity order the Chili Margarita, I love margaritas
'S this one of the best I've ever drank!
