Tucked off a quiet Georgetown alley, it almost feels like this secret gem is perfectly content with not being found. Accoutred with smooth wood and clean lines, this unusual delight flaunts a contemporary Nordic vibe; and enveloped by melodic tunes, the dining room is attended to by a disarmingly warm staff. Nab a seat at the counter to witness Chef Johnny Spero's artistry. His cooking skews Mid-Atlantic, with a laser-focus on seasonality and inspired flavors. Snack on brown butter- and tamari-soaked toast with beef tartare, then move on to spoon-tender pork confit presented with a blood sausage purée and frizzled white kombu. Desserts run the gamut from melon granita with kombucha to fromage blanc capped by a luminous sheet of elderflower ice.
