Why We're Excited About this Spot
Owner and chef Driss Zahidi was showered with accolades from the likes of The Washington Post, Washingtonian, and Zagat as owner of the popular Evo Bistro, before opening this spot, his latest vision, in April. With this deal, you'll enjoy a thoughtfully designed five-course meal, beginning with a fresh lobster salad tossed with baby heirloom tomatoes, mango, and avocado. Then, move on to foie gras, followed by sea bass with crabmeat risotto. Your feast continues with steak au poivre: medallions of filet mignon with local farmer's vegetables in a five-peppercorn sauce. Finish with the cheese bastilla, drizzled in orange marmalade.
