Komi review

Lauren | Dec 23, 2003 08:41 AM

This is my first review so don't be too hard on me. My friend and I went to Komi on 17th Street last night for the first time and we thought the food was excellent.

It is a sparse restaurant with special accents here and there...very Dupont. The waitress came out with an amuse bouche, a small cup of roasted cauliflower soup with curry. It was sweet, sour, spicy and salty all at once. It was also very thick. There were so many layers of flavor in the soup it was incredible.

I had the grilled asparagus salad for my app. It came with shaved fennel, sprouts, light vinagarette, and freshly made mini-fresh mozzerella. It was really good as an app. It was especially nice that the cheese was to fresh. My friend had the mixed green salad. It came with a yogurt-type dressing. They were a little heavy on the dressing, but it worked for the salad.

For my entree I got the Srtiped Bass. It was seared and it came with a lobster reduction sauce, black eyed pease, and some sort of sausage that I didn't taste (I don't eat pork). The fish was a little too fishy for my taste when eaten with the skin, but without the skin it was light and had a very nice flavor to it. My friend got the hanger steak. It came with a crisp piece of bacon and a medley of sauteed vegetables. It was very good and the veggies complemented the tender meat. We also got a side of celery whipped mashed potatoes, that were very light a fluffy.

For dessert we got the chocolate fourways. It came with flourless chocolate cake, two chocolate meringues, and a rich fudgy mousse-like chocolate piece.

We also got a bottle of Hinman Pinot Noir (would not recommend. Tasted like water).

Everything came to $96 including tax but not tip. I would definitely go back and try the other items on the menu. It was wonderful.
