The chef Brad Walker’s resume is pretty impressive including Central Michel Richard, Proof, Cashion’s Eat Place, and Fiola. And the food did not disappoint.
We had quark and black pepper pierogi and also hand-cut fries with curry mayo for appetizers, and for dinner I had (surprise surprise) grilled hanger steak with chestnut purée, spicy kale, sauce charón and Anthony had the lamb loin special, stuffed with olli speck and something else with green beans. For dessert we had zeppole and a side of pistachio ice cream! Everything was delicious. I left really happy and pretty full!
The decor is all exposed brick, and pretty small. Comfortable and cozy.
We also had delicious wine. I was only planning on having one since it was a school/work night. But the Walden Cotes du Rousillon was really good…so I had another. I highly recommend you try out the restaurant for yourself!
We had actually planned on going to Little Serow first, but even showing up really early they still gave us a 3 hour wait time. I know it is the most talked about restaurant in DC and basically everywhere else (it was named the 7 in the Hot 10 of America’s best new restaurants in Bon Appetit). But really? I read on Eater today that they were “categorizing Johnny Monis’ Thai hotspot Little Serow into what he calls a “badass Asian” genre that includes Pok Pok and Mission Chinese” I have been to Pok Pok in Portland and Mission Chinese in SF and NYC (la de da right?) I guess this means I will have to go to Little Serow another time. At least we found an amazing alternative in Boundary Road!!
