Fodor's Expert Review Mintwood Place
Visitors to D.C. from more cosmopolitan confines tend to scoff at the city's high-minded cultural aspirations, but only in a smaller urban center could European cooking this exemplary be found in such an unhurried setting. Get ready to dive into chef Cedric Maupillier's sensuous tangle of tagliatelle in a rich Bolognese sauce, topped with a fairy-tale dusting of Parmesan. Even a humble-sounding starter like "mountain pie" arrives elegantly, its geometric layers of goat cheese and beets peeking through emerald butter-lettuce leaves. At brunch, try the unique bacon-and-onion flammekueche tarts.
