DISTRIKT Bisto DC
Seriously delicious food.
I am basing this on a single meal, but it was a wonderful meal. A bowl of Moroccan Harira, perfectly prepared and vegetarian. It's not a veggie place, but they have dishes to satisfy the hungriest vegan. the I had the special, pan-seared salmon on a bed of lentil salad with a side of greens. Beautiful. And it tasted wonderful, too. The salmon was perfectly cooked. The lentils were in a delicious dressing involving capers and garlic. The greens were crisply perfect.
This is in teh space in the JCC where another restaurant existed for several years. It was very good and it was missed when it closed., but the dishes it offered were pretty simple. the new place is a major upgrade in cuisine. Ambitious and, at least last night, living up to that ambition.
they advertise that they deliver in DC and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. Imagine, food at this level delivered to your meeting hotel in Alexandria!
