Restaurant Kolumbia report

Steve | Dec 22, 2006 09:42 PM

Six Chowhounds got together for a pricey, discouraging lunch at Restaurant Kolumbia on K St.

I'll let the others chime in for themselves, but I doubt the news is going to be hopeful. I started with a watercress and apple salad where all the ingrediants were shredded finely into a large heap. Couldn't taste the ingredients for the acidic dressing. The flourescent lighting in the middle of the dining room does not help the food any, but I for one find the 'mounding' of food here unattractive.

My second course was smoked lamb shoulder. The smoke covered any lamb flavor.

Of the other dishes I tasted, the stand out was the pierogi platter. About as fine a display of these babies as you are likely to find. Other items ranged from dreary to shrug inducing. These included a borscht that pulled its punches, a pork sandwich that was very much dried out, and an ok duo of seafood soups - lobster and mussels. The duck confit 'salad' was mostly a duck vs. frisee affair. The duck lost.
