I thought I would write to report that I had an pleasant dinner last night at Cashion's. I have wanted to try it for years...have read Sietsema's reviews, heard others discuss it and finally had the opportunity.
I really enjoyed the level of care that is taken into preparing the menu. It changes often and is handwritten-a nice homey touch. I had the Tomato and Mozzarella salad which I shared with my Mom-it was generous enough to do so. The wine list was extensive and detailed-my Dad ordered a bottle reccommended by our waitress (staff here was professional, friendly and even-a rarity lately in my dining experiences-cared that you were having a pleasant time). Prices for appetizers ranged from 6-9 dollars and the entree range was 17-30 dollars.
My Mother and I ordered the Halibut which was absolutely perfect-in a buerre blanc sauce-and My Father ordered the seared tuna. I was curious to try the potato's Anna-we tried as a side. They were a bit like scalloped potatoes, but without the cream. I liked them, they were decent but wasn't blown away. We were under time contstraints so we had to skip dessert.
All in all, I found Cashion's to be a pleasant tasty dining experience....one that is growing to be few and far between these days.
The only drawback to report-one that has kept me from trying Cashion's is the lack of parking options. Adam's Morgan is one of the toughest places to score a LEGAL space in DC....We drove around a few times and after being patient we found one a few blocks away. Something to note, They do have a valet service. Yet, it seemed as if it was not in operation last night (it was a Sunday).
