Restaurant: Equinox

In November, Equinox opened at its new location on 19th Street NW in Washington, DC. The Todd Gray restaurant originally opened in 1999 on 18th Street NW.

Washington Watch has had hundreds of meals at Equinox starting the week that it opened 24 years ago. We also tried a new restaurant also on 19th Street NW named Casa Teresa, one month after it opened. We enjoyed the meal and will go again.

For the table:

  • Federal Risotto Fritters

First Course:

  • Spiced Butternut & Coconut Cream Soup – Aaron
  • Arugula & Endive Salad with Chablis Poached Pears – Mike

Main Course:

  • Bouillabaisse – Debbie
  • Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Curry – Ryan
  • Venison – Aaron
  • 48-Hour slow-cooked Beef Short Rib – Mike


  • Special – Apple fritters

A Special Dish – April 11, 2009 – Mike

Imagine my delight, when arriving at Equinox one day, to find the following item on the menu: “Michael Berman’s Favorite Vegetable Arrangement.”

Braised Mustard Greens-Fingerling Potatoes-Caramelized Cauliflower-Spaghetti Squash – (the vegetables may vary)

On a number of occasions, I had asked Todd Gray to fix me a vegetable plate as an entrée. This was the result. Try it.
