Great looking place - corner of Florida and R, but very mixed reviews. Anyone been there lately?

  1. No one has been there lately. I thought I had heard she was moving on.

      I know Asia Nora closed but I didn't hear anything about Nora closing or Nora herself moving on. But I rarely hear anything about this restaurant anymore.

        I think one of the reasons you don't hear much about it anymore is because nowadays a lot of restaurants use local/organic ingredients, so Nora's model is not that unique in DC.

    2. I've been there twice but not lately. It has been a little over a year. While the food is quite good from what I remember it is very pricey, even if it' organic. However, I'm not a fan of the atmosphere. The tables are on top of each other and the decor makes me feel like I'm in my British grandma's 1950s living room.

      1. I was there in the past year, but over 6 months ago. It was still very good, but not quite as special feeling as the first time I went a few years before.
