a month ago i had the privilege of dining with my wife and friends at dc’s highly regarded “komi” restaurant. it is a small, sparsely decorated place that once housed Roberto Donna’s “Il Radicchio”. the focus is entirely on the food and wine service. this is not a place to go to see and be seen, or for it’s happening atmosphere. their reverence toward the dining experience is unrivaled, they take this very seriously… komi offers a tasting menu only, and you simply select your pasta course, and main course (from just a few selections), chef Johnny Monis does the rest.
we were treated to 20 different plates, all of which were thoughtfully presented, and elegant, but not overdone. everything was served intimately on plates meant for couples to share. highlights include the miniature pita bread sandwiches of abalone mushroom (they resembled tiny gyros);and the main courses of whole grilled seabass, whole spitroast leg of suckling pig, and shoulder of baby goat served with a condiment tray of various sauces, relishes and salts to season with, as well as homemade pita bread and cucmber-yogurt salad. hands down this was one of the best meals ive ever experienced. i was embarassed to use my camera in the small dining room, so the only photo i took was of our wine flight at the end of the night, when we were the only remaining guests. sorry i can’t show you more. visit their website at
