The last time the Washington Watch included a new restaurant review was in the April 2020 issue. It was a review of Danny Meyer’s Maialino Mare, which I visited on March 2, 2020 with Debbie, Bev, and Brady. Continue reading “Restaurants”
I first wrote about this restaurant in the summer of 2016 when it was the Casolare Restaurant-Bar. Casolare closed in late spring 2020 as a result of the pandemic and a change in ownership of the hotel. Continue reading “Restaurant: The Glover Park Grill”

On January 7th, Debbie and I attended the opening reception of Maialino Mare. (Washington Watch January 2020) The restaurant is located in the new Thompson Hotel. This is the first full-service D.C. restaurant opened by Danny Meyer and also the first full-service restaurant he has opened outside of New York as part of his Union Square Hospitality Group.
Our second visit was for dinner on March 2nd with Bev and Brady. We had a 6:45 p.m. reservation. (See note at the end.) Continue reading “Restaurant: Maialino Mare”

Debbie and I went to Bresca with Ricki and Tony. The restaurant has been open for about two years.

Neither Debbie or nor could recall a better meal from any of the many restaurants at which we have dined. (More about those 18 Michelin restaurants at the end of this piece.)

This is a first for WW, reviewing a restaurant that Debbie and I visited the night before it opened.
We were invited to a reception on January 7th the night before the restaurant opened in its new home at the Navy Yard. The restaurant is located in the new Thompson Hotel which also opened the next day. Continue reading “Restaurant: Maialino Mare”
Debbie and I went to Brasserie Liberté with Elizabeth and Hilary. It is relatively new and located in what was for many years Morton’s Steak House. It is not a steak house. Continue reading “Restaurant: Brasserie Liberté”
