Soft shell crab tempura
Shroomwich - tastes as good as the cookbook looks. Phenomenal.
The sauces of every dish are what bump them from great to stellar. Cheese sauce for the shroomwich, basil oil for the burrata salad, tartar for the crab topped with fresh pickled cucumber slices, ginger mayo for the fries. The layers and dimensions are outstanding and imaginative. Contemporary American comfort food at its best. This lunch is reason enough to get yourself to Washington, D.C. Or at least get a copy of Happy in the Kitchen (one of my favorites) and prepare to be amazed.
