My wife and I popped in here on our first night in Washington. It was just up the road from our hotel and we thought it looked quite nice. There was a pleasant atmosphere and we didn't have any problems choosing from the varied menu. The starters of crab cake for me and popcorn shrimp for the wife were swiftly devoured. For main course, my wife had scallops and I opted for the skate wings. I grew up eating skate but it's not something I've seen in many (any?) other restaurants and I was keen to see how it would compare to the fresh fish I'd grown up with. While it wasn't up to that standard, it far exceeded my expectations. It was perfectly cooked and the two wings made for quite a substantial meal.
The only down side was, after the meal, I ordered a whisky to finish things off. I asked for a Laphroaig as I am a big fan of Islay malts. When the whisky came, it didn't take me long to realise that wasn't what I'd been served. I took it back to the waiter who assured me that the bar tender had told him it was Laphroaig. I insisted it wasn't and was allowed to return it without any charge. The waiter later told me that they had run out but the bar tender had said "this is the next best thing." I guess the moral of this story is - you shouldn't mess with a Scottish guy's whisky. :)
