2015 Winter Restaurant Week, Day 4
My final stop during 2015 Winter Restaurant Week (Part 1)* was Georgetown’s Café Milano. Café Milano is famous as a place to see and to be seen, if you’re a political, sports, or media celebrity. I’m none of the above, but I was eager to check it out.
The restaurant is on Prospect Street, near M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, in the heart of Georgetown. It’s big and beautiful and crowded. It’s also very, very loud, and, since the tables are close to each other, it’s not a good place to have a quiet conversation.
This was a traditional Tuscan bread and tomato soup, with basil-infused olive oil. Impressive. Imagine the best spaghetti sauce you’ve ever had, and you’ve got some idea of how it tasted.
My main was a sautéed Mediterranean sea bass fillet in a potato-caper sauce, with sautéed broccoli rabe. I didn’t know what to expect w/the potato-caper sauce, but found it to be excellent. The fish was simply but expertly cooked.
Piedmont traditional chocolate, amaretto, and caramel flan.
Celebrity count: Zero, but I wasn’t really looking.
One Dimension or Hillary Clinton could have been sitting at the next table, and I wouldn’t have noticed. Almost anybody except One Dimension or Hillary Clinton could have been sitting at the next table, and I wouldn’t have noticed.
*2015 Winter Restaurant Week officially ends on Sunday, but many restaurants, including some of DC’s best, extend the party for another week.
