RaisaB Posted March 26, 2008 Share Posted March 26, 2008 Has anyone dined at this restaurant yet? I noticed it made Northern Virginia magazines Top 25. I tried dining there when it first opened, the place was empty, so Bob and I walked in. We were told only reservations were taken. We were susprised but agreed to eat at the "casual" sister next door, Okra's. The owner/manager came by and chatted with us and tried to explain his concept for fine dining. He gave us the website address for the restaurant. He seemed very arrogant without much knowledge. I mentioned a few restaurants in DC while speaking and he was clueless. Upon returning home and checking out the website, I was flabbergasted that he gave instructions on how to dress while dining at the "fine dining" restaurant. I imagine that is why we were denied dinner as we were not dressed accordingly, we had jeans and casual jackets. I am hoping that he has matured in the industry and someone has been there..... BTW, the meal at his "casual" place was a true "jambalaya" of opposing flavors. There was no harmony whatsover. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
