Has anyone tried it? I'm a fan of the chef -- interested in this new place. Thoughts?
This place has a nice large patio (indoor seating as well) and is an interesting addition to the strip mall on Massachusetts in Spring Valley. It doesn't take reservations, and the wait was about half an hour on a nice Sunday evening. Parking can be tough along that strip although I bet there is plenty in nearby lots or side streets. The food is a bit of a mish-mash of New England and California themes. I had the Eel Point tacos, which were good - rare tuna with a creamy slaw thing in flour tortillas (I usually like corn tortillas for tacos but they aren't trying to be authentic Mexican so I'll let it go). My companions had the Smith Point tacos (we decided the Eel Point were better) and the 40th Pole quesadillas. Dessert is served out of a standalone ice cream stand on the patio - lots of fun for kids. Everything was good, although the atmosphere is the real calling card. If the weather is nice I anticipate it being a popular neighborhood destination.
Not sure why there is not a topic on Due South, although maybe I do know after eating there. Went after Nats game last night. Nice patio - great view. Otherwise, can't recommend at least based on what we ordered. Started with corn bread, which is 4 pieces of fried cornbread with an oddly flavored (and unappealing color) molasses Rosemary butter. Bread tasted greasy but cornbread expectations should never be that high, should they? And we did eat all of it. I had the roasted corn and black eyed pea salad. The corn was barely roasted and the jalapeño dressing had zero flavor. I was told it was not meant to be spicy just with a jalapeño flavor but my salad tasted like it was dressed with water. I asked for extra dressing but it never came. My friend did like her burrata salad but for a main dish salad, the greens were a bit limited. Service was ok and while we had only basic cocktails they do have a decent beer selection and drink menu. My friend likes the Sunday brunch and said it is always busy for that. And again, the patio is a really nice place to sit.
