DC has such an amazing dining scene! There’s so much to experience, and I can’t wait to share more with you guys. I have a very LONG list of restaurants I want to go to so stay tuned for more food content coming your way.
For today’s post, I’m sharing a massive photo dump featuring dishes I had at Reverie a few weeks back. This was my first time dining there, and it was definitely a memorable evening for more reasons than one. I enjoyed their “long menu” that evening with David Ortiz + new friends.
Uni and tuna tartare potato sando with horseradish and caviar
Clam with preserved + fresh tomato
Scallop with buttermilk and dill
Carolina gold rice with red crab and egg
Caviar and sunchoke miso ice cream with sunchoke caramel and osetra caviar
Cod with kombu
Lamb with chestnuts, almond and juniper
Duck with rhubarb, beet and fennel
Pear with granita, jacucumber, and kombucha marshmallow
Fromage blanc with alpine amaro, elderflower and beet
Koji ice cream with wild rice and pine
Chocolate covered marshmallows, caramels and nom carrots
The meal started off with two different kinds of oysters + lardo, but I can’t find that picture anywhere for some reason. For me, the lardo, potato, crab rice and sunchoke + caviar dishes were standouts. The rice legit transported me back to my childhood – it was literally comfort in a bowl, and I could eat that for the rest of my life and be happy. It was one of those Ratatouille moments for sure, and it tasted a lot like juk, a korean rice porridge that’s a staple in the cuisine.
The tuna tartare was so beautiful, too. And I’m such a big caviar person, how could I resist listing that exquisite sunchoke and caviar combo as a highlight. Johnny’s opening Bar Spero in early 2022 so I’m very excited to go and try the food there as well!
