We had a little belated Christmas...
As much as I know they really only come to see the kids... we also wanted to take them out for a nice dinner in D.C. while they were here! So.... the other night we took them to Birch and Barley! It was my first time and I was a fan. The highlight, for me, was the yummy bread!
House Polenta, Vincotto Beets, Baby Carrots, Romanesco, Marconas, Preserved Lemon
Matt's mom had the Ricotta Cavatelli with Crispy Pork Belly, Mustard Greens & Stems & Seeds, Chili Flake, Rosemary. -- It was one of the best things I've ever eaten and if we were to go back I'd order it for myself!
I'm also interested in their "FEAST" where they butcher a whole suckling pig and have beer pairings with each course! Maybe I will have to coordinate this for something special for Matt.
