Useful information


The Blagden Alley may have been charmless once, but it now teems with exciting culinary gems. Entering The Dabney is like finding the end of a rainbow. Inside, discover a farmhouse-chic space with an open kitchen, wood-fired oven and eclectic, well-dressed crowd. This cuisine is suitable for anyone looking to delve into regional, Mid-Atlantic food through a menu that marries traditional and contemporary flavors. Thanks to Chef Jeremiah Langhorne's direction, diners can look forward to a supremely rich, almost buttery scallop crudo dressed with citrus, herbs and peanuts—and when that dish is finished with a shard of sheep's milk cheese, it is a reminder to expect the unexpected here. Group dining is highly recommended, so friends can maximize the number of small plates and even share a few of the mains, including the very homey chicken and dumplings. Don’t miss out on desserts as they flaunt such classics as apple crumble with house-made ice cream bearing just a hint of Bourbon. Housed nearby, The Dabney Cellar is an ideal spot to while away the waiting time before your meal. Their charcuterie and cheese vie for serious attention-not unlike the wine list of 30-some choices by the glass. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
