DC Coast

Just back from our anniversary dinner and thought I would offer a review of our excellent meal.

The wine was red and came in a bottle with a cork and cost half as much as all the food. For starters we shared a stuffed fried pepper ("chili relleno" apparently is not the same as "chili") and a coaster-sized mushroom cap with a fried duck egg on top. For the main dish I had tuna, which was thick and pink in the middle and covered with some yellow sauce and some kind of bean that looked like small corn all around. The lady had halibut, or maybe it was sea bass, which had some pieces of potato thrown in, and some other sauce. For dessert we had cheesecake sprinkled liberally (too liberally, if you ask me) with "masticated cherries." I'm pretty sure that's how the menu described them. That's certainly how they looked. At the end of the evening we were presented with two delectable wafers of pure minty sugar, each dipped in a bit of nicely complementing chocolate.
