I had a very pleasant lunch at Palette yesterday. The space is very attractive with a bar area with a decent looking lounge menu worthy of a happy hour. The lunch menu offered a nice mix of options. My companion and I both went with the yellow tomato bisque with lump crabmeat. I was expecting cold soup and I think this would be better this time of year cold. That said, it was tasty with a nice swirl of chive oil to brighten the flavor. I had the pulled duck spinach salad as an entree. There was far more duck then I would have expected. It was nicely seasoned with an apple peppercorn dressing that accented rather then overwhelmed the duck. My companion had the grilled ahi salad that was more sliced ahi with noodles then salad. He commented on how quickly he inhaled his lunch when I asked how it was. We skipped dessert but with the check comes a large bowl of cotton candy. They have a nice bread presentation offering several selections. I had lavosh that was somehwat bland. The others looked better and I'd get one of them next time.
Walking by the Loews Madison at 15th & M earlier today, I noticed big signs in the windows announcing that Jose Garces is bringing Argentinian food to DC. No name or opening date were given. I hadn't heard anything about this previously. We are big fans of his Spanish restaurant, Amada, in Philadelphia, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
Please transform this topic into a post elsewhere if there is an established general thread about new places and transformations. However, last night I noticed copies of an application for a liquor license posted in the window of the McDonald's that closed some time ago, i.e. across from the Uptown, down a bit from an Italian restaurant on the corner whose logo is a winged lion. Does anyone know what's up at this location?
