    Had business dinner there and selected the fried chicken which is the restaurant's specialty. Sadly I would prefer KFC, place is overrated for food quality.

    Based on this evening, the service was poor (super slow. A 10 min wait for a table was closer to an hour and after 15 mins the cheque hadn't arrived after requesting it) but food was really good.

    What an absolute disappointment. They can't even get breakfast right. Plenty of amazing restaurants in DC, skip this joke.

    The fried chicken is crispy and perfectly cooked. Save room for dessert: the tarts and pies are warm and yummy.

    If you're looking for a healthy breakfast, order from the Art Start Breakfast Menu - market omelet + toasted granola w/ yogurt are both delicious.

    Start with the wedge salad - it's large, but don't share it; too delicious to part ways with half.
