My friend Kristen, who runs our Charlotte blog, was in town with her family to do the DC tourist attractions - so we met with her and her family for dinner. With a new chef in the kitchen, I was excited to sample the menu and see what they had to offer.
It's a stunning setting when you walk in. The main dining room has maintained many of the original features from 1864 including Italian Carrera marble fireplaces, ten-foot gilded mirrors, and floor to ceiling windows.
And the food? It was incredible. Our highlights from the night were the crab fondue, Caprese salad, crab cakes, and the NY strip steak. I have to admit, the fresh pesto on top of my Caprese might have been the best part of my night.
We enjoyed experiencing the modern American cuisine with the elegant 1864 setting. If you're looking for family-friendly, I will warn you -- there is no kids menu. I would definitely come back again, but this time with no kiddos in tow!
