Againn DC update

Started on the wrong foot with a lost reservation, which had been made and confirmed directly with restaurant by telephone.

The food quality was excellent (esp. pork belly and hanger steak), but some menu descriptions (i.e. smoked salmon, which is a ground patty) are misleading. The side Welsh Rarebit was plebeian and should be avoided (yes, I am Welsh).

Comparatively decent wine markup (2.5x retail).

The table was simply too small for two to enjoy a full supper with wine (we had to relocate our bread basket and other items to the windowsill), which made the entire meal awkward.

The content of the "Private Scotch Lockers" tends toward Johnny Walker Black -- pretty funny! Apparently they don't have a very discerning clientele.

Nice bar, but not a place we'll be heading back to for a meal.
