Sietsema Rave for Nectar

The review in this Sunday's paper (see link) will make tables very hard to come by. At our lunch there this week, on the other hand, we found the food very, very well prepared -- the chef obviously is trying to do some very interesting things -- but somewhat precious and unmemorable. The service was among the most pretentious and disarming we've experienced in DC. "Too-familiar faux-formal," or something like that. Lots of smug attitude (cleverness, self-satisfaction) and no warmth. We were not at all comfortable there. Made us yearn for Zuki Moon. (Anyone know where Mary Richter's been hiding?) A couple of other folks at today's Huong Viet lunch (wonderful, btw, even though our host Elyhtak could not make it) had a similar experience at Nectar, FWIW.
