Where I Eat

From My Menu

Chef Bertrand Chemel reviews Tapas at Estadio
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese
Logan Circle
"I love the Spanish tapas at Estadio. They aren't just simple tapas, they are very creative. It reminds me of Casa Mono in NYC. Don't forget to try the desserts. "
Chef Adam Sobel reviews Tortilla española at Estadio
$$$ | Spanish/Portuguese
Logan Circle
"This version of the Spanish egg dish is the best I have ever had in the States. It's a perfectly cooked omelet with potatoes and caramelized onions topped with sweet and spicy red peppers, sliced garlic and a little aioli over the top. Perfect."
Chef Kyle Bailey reviews Tuna tartare at Proof
$$$ | Wine Bar | Modern | American
Penn Quarter
"Layers of crispy nori between the tuna? That's super cool and tasty. Fresh flavors make this one an instant classic. Chef Haidar Karoum is the boss."
Chef Fabio Trabocchi reviews Miso-glazed Alaskan sablefish at Proof
$$$ | Wine Bar | Modern | American
Penn Quarter
"The miso-glazed sablefish is Proof's signature entrée, and I never tire of it. The sweet miso glaze goes so well with the buttery black cod. It's a terrific dish."
