A friend who lives in Bethesda said this was her favorite place and that was where she wanted to go for her Birthday lunch. All 3 of us had the special, a lovely house salad and Char over a wonderful couscous. The service was immaculate. Just the right touch, a quick scooping away of my opened sugar packages but not wanting to take away the dishes too soon. Just right. Food was outstanding. Only disappointment was the Pig Brittle for dessert. On the menu a mention that it was rated an outstanding ice cream by others. While good, the brittle was excellent but served on the side and the ice cream was vanilla. So not sure what the excitement was about. I was expecting a blended ice cream. However that did not overcome what was a just delightful experience. I would definitely go back again and I loved that you could hear. Great food, outstanding service and decent prices.
