Going to Komi tonight - any recent reports on the menu? Any "must-trys"?

BTW, I am moving out of the Dupont neighborhood on Monday - chose Komi as my last meal in the 'hood - its one of my favorite places in DC. Luckily I'm not moving far - it just won't be walking distance anymore!

      1. So I know this is Blasphemy on this board, but I have to say it...

        Komi is overhyped!! I have been salivating for over a year waiting to eat there, and FINALLY got a reservation (and parents in town to pay for the meal). I went two Friday's ago. We had the tasting menu with the 3 wine pairing.

        The first course was extremely whimsical and inventive -- some of the highlights included the mascarpone stuffed dates with sea salt, and the "ceasar salad" crouton filled with a warm liquid. The cone with beef tartare, eel, and a caramel froth looked very pretty but tasted very bland. The cerviche was OK -- I've had better. As was the tiny goat sausage pita -- OK.

        My pasta course was nothing special -- tagliatelle with mushrooms and guanciale. As with many of the dishes it sounded like it would be delicious because I love all the ingredients, but it ended up tasting pretty bland.

        I shared the much talked about goat entree and it was only OK. Not very flavorful - my boyfriend agreed.

        The deserts were good, as were the wine pairings.

        If this had been a moderately priced restaurant I would have walked away very content, however - given the price, and the hype, I left a little underwhelmed. I hope to try it again one day in case it was just an off night!
