Fodor's Review

James Beard Award–winner Matthew Dillon helms this popular restaurant at Capitol Hill's Melrose Market. Romantic, chic, friendly, and cutting edge all at once, S&S is a heaven for foodies—try to snag a table at the large butcher block that extends from the chef's kitchen for a view of the cooks at work. Choose from seasonally-rotating offerings such as king bolete mushrooms with blistered fava beans, whole baby turnips in tarragon with house-made yogurt with za'atar spice, and deliciously tender charcoal-grilled chicken served with rye berries grown in nearby Winthrop. The sourdough bread baked at Dillon's Georgetown project, The Corson Building, is a deal even at $5.50 (fancy butters and spreads included). Mondays the menu is given over to inventive guest chefs. Read more about the hip Melrose Market—home to a fishmonger, butcher, and more—in the shopping section.
