Red Sage!

Went to Red Sage last night for RW week...and it has definitely moved into my top 5 list of DC restaurants. They offer the full menu with no up charges. Started with the Crab Cake Pairing, and the BBQ Roasted Quail. The crab was recommended but I think the quail easily beat it. Both were seasoned well however, and I'd recommend either.
For our entrees we chose the Duck and Lobster. The duck was out of this world, with the lobster seasoned really nicely and served with an interesting quacamole like mash. The duck had a slight hoisin flavor but with many different cuts of the meat, and a large serving (no bones)...truly enjoyable.
Dessert was one of the toughest choices, but we had the Caramel Toffee Pudding (which was butterscotch ice cream over molten cinnamon cake with caramel and toffee bits), and the Chocolate Obsession...which though good was almost too rich!
Overall, I just want to point out that we received some of the best service, even given we didn't order any drinks, etc. I will definitely be back many more times!
