Washington, DC New Menu Report: 04/22/15

City Tap House
Love your mother? Then celebrate Earth Day with a cold draft at City Tap House. The breweries include Long Trail Brewing Company, Otter Creek Brewing, and Wolaver’s Organic Ales. Here is each brewer’s green creds: Long Trail uses only recycled and green glass bottles for their brews; Otter Creek donates their spent hops and yeast to local farmers as clean alternatives to fertilizers and feed for local dairy cows; and Wolaver’s Organic Ales is the first certified organic brewery in the U.S., has a non-GMO policy, and only sources hops, etc. from organic purveyors and farmers.

Jardenea at Melrose
Tucked away at Melrose Hotel, upper Georgetown’s charming boutique hotel, is Jardenea, a quiet place for incredible seafood and locally sourced meat, game, and produce. Executive chef Nate Lindsay may look like a college kid, but don’t let his youthful appearance fool you. He is fully in command of the kitchen and is an expert at preparing fresh seafood and delicate baby vegetables. For spring, he has created special lunch, dinner, and dessert menus that pair seamlessly with the new cocktail menu. Some mouthwatering favorites include the white asparagus bisque garnished with black truffle Chantilly cream; crispy skinned, coriander dusted Hawaiian sea bass; cinnamon scented profiteroles garnished with toasted hazelnuts and chocolate ganache; and the maple Manhattan made with Cutty Sark whiskey, organic maple syrup, and dry vermouth.

Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
For some, spring means baby vegetables, sorrel, tender lettuce, and a change from red to rosé wine. Dessert lovers with a perennial sweet tooth anxiously await the first shoots of rhubarb because they know that tangy, sweet, silky strawberry rhubarb pie can’t be far behind. Well, you’re in luck because Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab has just added a flaky crust strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream to their monthly #pieitforward program that supports local charities. For every slice of pie you buy, Joe’s will donate $1 to Communities In Schools of The Nation’s Capital, which is dedicated to bringing community resources into schools.

Legal Sea Foods
A seafood eatery may not be the first place you consider when you’re on the hunt for something different in the cocktail category, but Legal Sea Foods is literally raising the bar with new cocktails for spring. From April 15 to September 30, all four DMV locations will be offering a new line up for between $9 to $12 dollars. It’s part of Legal Sea Foods’ Raising the Bar program and it focuses on innovative and inventive drinks like The Islander, which is made with Plantation 3 Stars silver rum, Plantation Original dark rum, passion fruit, fresh pineapple, and lime juice; the Mexican Mule, made with Del Maguey Vida mescal, Patrón Reposado tequila, muddled grapefruit, lime, and ginger beer; and the Tea Party, which combines Deep Eddy Sweet Tea vodka, Templeton rye whiskey, lemon, honey, and soda water.

Masa 14
Sometimes, you just want to have something easy to eat that’s familiar or doesn’t cost an entire pay check. For some people, tacos satisfy that hunger. If so, Masa 14, chef Richard Sandoval’s lively 14th Street cantina is happy to oblige with their new Unlimited Chef’s Tasting Menu featuring unlimited small plates and free-flowing cocktails. You can order these savory hand held bites Sunday through Thursday with two options: Unlimited Latin-Asian small plates for $49 per person or the Unlimited Latin-Asian small plates with select bottomless drinks for $65 per person. There are restrictions however: the options don’t include tax and gratuity, the entire table must order the same Unlimited Chef’s Tasting Menu offering, and guests must complete their meal in two hours.

Nage Bistro
Nage Bistro is known for its fresh seafood, Rehoboth origins, and creative American fare and now they’ve upped their cocktail game and have added six new light, fresh, seasonal drinks named for colorful jewels. The drinks debut on Wednesday, April 22 and include “gems” like Stormy Garnet, which blends house made strawberry, basil, and black peppercorn vodka with ginger beer and cranberry juice; Jasper Moon is made with bourbon, St. Germain, freshly squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup, and mint and topped with a dose of sparkling wine; the Ruby Slipper is a watermelon juice martini; and there’s even a white peach sangria you can purchase by the glass or in pitchers.

Trump’s Longtime CFO, Whose Testimony Could Send Him to Prison, Suggests He Had a Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy on Breaking the Law

As you’ve probably heard by now, at present Donald Trump is drowning in criminal investigations and is possibly legally screwed. Aside from the whopping 29 lawsuits he is facing—which is no small thing to set aside!—he is the subject of at least three criminal investigations, the most worrisome one, from the standpoint of staying out of prison, being the Manhattan district attorney’s. For months now, Cyrus Vance Jr. has been looking into possible tax, banking, and insurance fraud, and in February scored a major victory when the Supreme Court cleared the way for him to get his hands on Trump‘s tax returns, which the ex-president responded to like a man who knows he’s broken the law and is about to get caught. Another seemingly crucial development appeared to occur earlier this month, when the former daughter-in-law of longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg turned over a trove of documents to Vance‘s office that could contain the kind of information that might get Weisselberg, who has described himself as the “eyes and ears” of the Trump Organization, to flip and testify against his boss. As Jennifer Weisselberg told Air Mail of her ex-father-in-law, “Trump doesn’t care about Allen, but Allen knows every bad thing he ever did.”

And speaking of Weisselberg, over the weekend, the New York Daily News reported that the Trump Organization employee had some extremely interesting things to say in a 2015 deposition that could come back to haunt Donald Trump today. Per the Daily News:

Weisselberg’s testimony during the June 2015 deposition tied to lawsuits over the now defunct Trump University offers a rare look at the longtime bean counter—a tight-lipped and low-profile money man who’s been with the Trump Organization since it was run by Fred Trump, and who was once described by Donald Trump in 2004 as a guy who “knows how to get things done.”

In one potentially pivotal piece of information, Weisselberg said his tendency to micromanage had its limits when legal matters were involved, at least in 2015. Asked about the time he found himself “eavesdropping” on a discussion among Trump lawyers about the alleged illegality of marketing Trump’s for-profit school as a “university” in New York, Weisselberg said he didn’t delve deeper.

He admitted asking in a 2005 email if executives planned to “just set up a fictitious office in Illinois/Delaware” as they dealt with the issue, but he said his inquiry centered exclusively on cost, not propriety. “I can’t help them with that role. That’s not my thing,” he testified. “I was only concerned about the economic side of it. They were handling the legal side of it.”

As former White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter suggested on Sunday, it‘s extremely peculiar that a corporate CFO would claim he had nothing to do with the legal side of the business, which a person in his position wouldn’t be able to just wall himself off from, as it would be intertwined in the job. In fact, it‘s almost as though he was purposefully trying to distance himself from any potential law-breaking that may or may not have been going on!

As for whether or not Weisselberg would actually turn on Trump, Barbara Res, a former executive vice president at the Trump Organization, told the Daily News that while Weisselberg “thought Trump was a God” and “drank the Kool-Aid,” there are likely limits to his fealty. “I don’t believe he would commit perjury,” she said. And in fact, the CFO has already cooperated with prosecutors investigating Trump on two previous occasions—with the 2017 New York attorney general’s investigation of the Donald J. Trump Foundation and the 2018 federal probe into alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen MacDougal. In 2019, Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, told Congress that while he personally paid Daniels the money, it was Weisselberg who “made the decision” that he should be repaid over 12 months “so that it would look like a retainer.” So, actually, it sounds like he does get involved in “legal” matters from time to time!

Joe Biden’s stock market performance has blown away that of all other presidents in modern history


Patrick O’Connell Is Opening a Casual Cafe Near the Inn at Little Washington and Hopes to Bring It to DC

Patrick O’Connell, the famed chef whose Inn at Little Washington once again earned three Michelin stars last week, is going casual. At a forthcoming cafe set in an old post office near his bucolic-chic Rappahannock County destination, he’s planning a menu of house-roasted coffee and “deceptively simple” food “done better than you ever thought possible,” he says. It’ll be the first time the restaurateur has launched a business apart from the Inn.

Over the past year and a half, O’Connell has worked on the cafe prototype with the help of many of his 158 staffers (there are 133 residents in Little Washington, by comparison). The space is slated to debut late next summer, and the hope, he says, is to bring it to DC. “The plan is to perfect that first location off-Broadway,” he says. “And then we’re open to replicating it in a more urban locality. It lends itself beautifully to being able to spin off.”

O’Connell’s dream is to have a place where people can sit outside. “I think there will never be enough sidewalk restaurants,” he says. “Paris is one of my favorite cities, and I love just walking along and whenever you need to, you just sit down and have a coffee or glass of wine, and you appreciate the city in a way that you can’t while driving or walking through it.” His true fantasy is a 24-hour restaurant, since he likes to start dinner at midnight: “I always think people are so lazy that the world closes at five o’clock.”

In DC, he visited three locations that intrigued him, but nothing has panned out (I’d first heard he was considering the Wharf, but he thinks a food cart might be better suited to such a “carnival.”). In Little Washington, he holds a sous chefs’ lunch every Friday, where the group samples possible dishes for the cafe menu. There’s no set lineup yet, but O’Connell has had one cook working on a table-side Caesar salad for months another has been perfecting matzo-ball soup. Other dishes he’s batting around: former New York Times critic Craig Claiborne’s tomato soup grilled cheese sandwiches made with comté cheese and a little tomato or bacon a rolled omelet “with something wonderful inside” a cured tongue sandwich with Russian dressing and a trio of pot de creme that hasn’t been overly refrigerated (“I like things to wiggle.”). An adjoining bakery will serve the croissants that only the Inn’s overnight guests (and Luray, O’Connell’s pampered dalmatian) get to taste: “It’s second only to one in Paris, at the Ritz Hotel.”

O’Connell is also thinking he’ll bring back some favorite dishes from the 41 year-old Inn’s less formal early days. Smoked trout with horseradish and apple cream, say, or a French onion soup with apple puree and Calvados.

“People always ask me why I didn’t [open in DC], as if to say, what’s wrong with you?,” O’Connell says. “And I’d say, well, at the point that everything here is running seamlessly and smoothly. I guess we’ve reached that point.”


Biden's bait-and-switch presidency

Can it be that President Biden has only been in office for 72 days? Some observers may be under the impression that it’s been more like 72 years or even 72 minutes — but no matter. Here’s a tidy summation of the presidential performance so far.

“Joe Biden was elected as a moderate-left Democrat, but he is not governing as one. He pledged repeatedly to work across party lines, but he is ramming through the biggest, most expensive progressive agenda in American history without any Republican votes,” writes Charles Lipson, a professor emeritus of international politics at the University of Chicago and contributor to RealClearPolitics.com.

“He is almost certain to try it again with his next two spending proposals, the largest since Lyndon Johnson‘s Great Society programs. As the White House pushes these mammoth bills with only Democratic votes, Americans are realizing they got a very different president from the one they bargained for, the one they were promised during the campaign. What’s unclear is whether they will recoil from this new reality,” Mr. Lipson advises.

“The result is a president determined to pass everything on the Democrats’ all-you-can-eat menu, even if he has to do it with strict party-line votes. As a candidate, Joe Biden promised voters a center-left agenda and bipartisanship. As a president, he is giving them neither. Biden‘s deception is based on the oldest marketing technique in the book: bait and switch,” Mr. Lipson later concludes.

FOR THE LEXICON

That’s an appropriate new name for The New York Times, according to Mollie Hemingway, senior editor for The Federalist. She was inspired by the news organization’s lengthy coverage of President Biden‘s gargantuan infrastructure plan.

“After years of pushing lies, the Democrat newsletter NYT pushed so much Democrat propaganda today on its front page that it is literally just being tweeted out like a press release by the White House. The media are corrupt, partisan propagandists. Treat them as such,” Ms. Hemingway noted in a tweet.

The tweet was later labeled with a warning as a source of “potentially sensitive content” by Twitter.

$2,200,000,000,000

It is either helpful or alarming to remember that President Biden‘s $2.2 trillion “infrastructure” plan actually looks like this: $2,200,000,000,000.

Eagle-eyed Republicans have examined all the available data about the plan and revealed that only 7% of this behemoth price tag is actually allocated for what Americans traditionally think of as “infrastructure” — roads, bridges, waterways, ports and airports.

So says Tommy Pigott, rapid response director for the Republican National Committee.

“That’s right — of Biden‘s $2.25 trillion bill, only $115 billion is allocated for repairing roads and bridges, only $25 billion for airports, and only $17 billion is for waterways and ports,” Mr. Pigott explains.

“And to pay for his noninfrastructure bill, Biden is proposing $1.8 trillion in tax hikes that would kill hundreds of thousands of jobs, and raise the combined tax rate on U.S. businesses to the highest of any country in the G-7,” he says, referring to the Group of Seven, a grouping of the world’s seven biggest democratic economies — the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Pigott also says the tax rate will also be higher than those found among the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a broader grouping of 37 democratic countries that includes such nations as South Korea, Australia and Israel.

“Reckless spending, higher taxes, and a less competitive business environment. That’s not the plan America needs as it recovers from a pandemic. That’s a recipe for fewer jobs and less money in Americans’ pockets, all to appease the far-left special interest groups occupying the swamp in Washington, D.C.,” Mr. Pigott cautions.

WHAT TRUMP SAID ON EASTER, 2020

A reminder, perhaps, of the nation’s status almost a year ago.

“Though we will not be able to gather together with one another as we normally would on Easter, we can use this sacred time to focus on prayer, reflection, and growing in our personal relationship with God,” then-President Donald Trump told Americans in a public address from the White House on April 10, 2020.

“I ask all Americans to pray that God will heal our nation to bring comfort to those who are grieving to give strength to the doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers to restore health to the sick and to renew the hope in every person who is suffering. Our nation will come through like never before. I thank the many families who have prayed for me and for my family. And your prayers are felt, and I am forever grateful,” Mr. Trump said.
