I have a constant craving for salad nicoise - the problem is that i rarely find a salad nicoise in the DC area that I enjoy.
Does anyone know of a restaurant anywhere in the DC metro area that serves salad nicoise - with top-grade perfectly seared tuna with the proper fresh ingredients. (i.e. new potato, french beans, etc.) I do not want any variation of the salad - meaning salmon steak instead of tuna. I really like the tried and true version and don't need to branch out on this particular issue.
I found that some of the steak houses in the city serve the salad but it always feels odd ordering a salad in a steak house. And I have tried several of the french restaurants and for some reason most insist on using canned tuna or worse - overcooked cold tuna steak (blech)
Please help - I'm out of ideas on my own. Thanks.
