Fodor's Review

An evening at Congress is no regular weekday affair. As Chef/partner David Bull intended with this crisply elegant fine dining concept, this restaurant is ideal for special occasions. The austere, yet comfortable dining room offers an inviting warmth. Service is impeccable and the food is exquisite. Seasonal menus include meticulously crafted dishes such as crispy pork belly crusted with whiskey bacon marmalade or espresso-rubbed prime rib-eye cap with smoked caramel and

potato purée. But Bull also shows his skill at delicacy with menu items like poached lobster with seabean and radish salad, and a creative spin on sheep's milk cheese three ways served with a bitter orange sauce and juniper salt. You can order from the extensive wine list, or simply trust the pros and ask for the pairing selections along with the tasting menu.
