I've eaten at the Washington DC restaurant and the one in Stamford, CT.
Both are beautifully appointed and there is a warmth about the place as well as the welcome you are given. You are immediately led to your table, and as soon as you are seated, your drink orders are requested, your water is poured and the bread basket is served.
The contents are a delicious introduction to the meal, with an interesting variety. The staff is in sync with your wishes and if you are busy in conversation, the menu is not thrust upon you nor does the waiter offer a description of the specials. When you are ready to order, you have a choice of various cuts of beef but also lamb, fish and vegetarian, if you like. The meats are perfect and perfectly done. Medium rare means just that. The salads are not original but good. Mac and cheese is delicious as are spinach and onion rings. Desserts are up to the meat standards and cappuccino makes a perfect end to the (satisfying in every way) meal. The tab is high but for an experience, not a meal, GO!
