    Cucumber cocktail was delicious. Got the mousse for two for dessert and was very large, but very good. Liked the fried green tomatoes and devilish eggs.

    Best restaurant in DC. Great food. If you don’t want to wait for table you can just sit by the bar (first come first served). Had a great time there and the bar man was really nice.

    Great location where many professional communities can meet in one place. For me, I think that fired chicken& waffle was the winner.

    The carrot cake is very good but huge! Triple layers—share w 2-3. The vanilla bean ice cream eclipses the cake.

    If you want real stuffed French Toast, go to Eva's Bakery in Salt Lake City. I know it sounds random, but it has the best French toast I've ever had, even better than my favorite NYC brunch spots.
