Pineapple & Pearls - Washington, D.C.
English Pea & Fava
6- Mint & Parsley Chimichuri
Throughout the dinner service I couldn't help myself, and ever so often would look over my shoulder to see what was happening in the dining room and at the Chef's counter. Smart waiters zipping around and like a natural extension of the restaurant, they would often come to present dishes at the bar - "oohs" and "aahs" followed, seemingly difficult to tell that there was any separation between the two rooms.
With no dramatic city view or ostentatious presentations, Pineapple & Pearl more than delivered an exceptional experience. Not needing the former two as they made up for it with the feeling that I was dining at a friend's house, and what better luxury is there than being comfortable?

On the other side of town you'll find another one of Washington, D.C.'s Michelin dining options, casual and rustic, the Blue Duck Tavern.
