2014 Summer Restaurant Week, Day 2
On Tuesday, I went back to Lincoln, another old favourite. Lincoln is fun. It’s big and bright and loud and lively, and it was the perfect antidote for a rainy day in Washington.
The rich Roasted Red Pepper Bisque had tasty bits of Atlantic blue crab. A good way to start a rainy day meal.
I grew up—to use the term loosely—in Pennsylvania, so I’m familiar w/Pennsylvania Chicken Pot Pie. I suspect, though, that most of the PCPP of my younger days was based on a recipe that began: “Open one can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup….”
This version was the real thing: carrots, celery, Vidalia onions, and tiny little green peas in a creamy stock, w/a light and flaky pastry on top. Served v hot.
With a cocoa nib crumble, passion fruit gelee, and mocha custard.
