So for besti’s birthday, 6 of us girls decided to go out to eat in Georgetown. It just so happened to be DC Winter Restaurant week so we were in luck. 1789 was a pretentious little restaurant with 5 different dining areas. I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with my loverlies. The food however was a bit lacking. For the prices, the meals weren’t as good as I expected them to be. They also had a no electronic device policy in the dining rooms. Of course, being the young adults we are…we ignored it.
I believe this was the best part of my meal. You could tell the Mussels were fresh, they didn’t have that fishy smell or taste. The Chorizo was nice and flavorful and the bread slice soaked up the sauce nicely to get every bit of flavor from everything.
I believe it is a Rockfish. The skin was nice and crispy as it was pan-fried and the meat was nice and flaky. A wonderfully flavorful dish. Did not get much of the truffle aroma from the sauce though. I was a bit disappointed about that.
Valhrona Chocolate Truffle
For some reason my picture of this disappeared. It tasted like a Triple Chocolate mousse. again, nothing to boast about.
