I received a call from one of my regular dining companions exclaiming that his date had cancelled their brunch date, and he asked if I was available to take her vacant spot – no brainer here, and I agreed without hesitation. Our brunch took place at Grillfish, Washington, DC, a seafood restaurant located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood packed with million-dollar houses and quite a number of hotels catering to the hordes of tourist visiting the city. I had not been to this location for nearly a year since my last visit on a date, but I recalled having a more than decent meal there with its variety of fishes and preparation styles that a customer can customize according to his or her wants. This blog is not going to be the usual, a critique, but more a photo gastronomic journey on a Winter’s day since I was taking advantage of the even daylight (usually I’m reviewing in the night) that streamed in by our table.
Freixenet Brut Blanc de Blancs with Pineapple and Passion Fruit Juices.
A dozen Local Oysters.
Crabcake and Egg Hollandaise with Garlic Sautéed Swiss chard.
Fish Tacos and Eggs with Creamy Marinara Sauce.
Caramel Cheesecake Brulée.
Simple verdict: well-executed dishes with balanced flavors with the fresh ingredients. This was worth the coupon that my friend had, which would have been $90 for two. Thanks, buddy!
