When : April 3, 2012

Where : l’Enfant cafe, Washington DC

What :

  • House salad : L’Enfant salad – with tomatoes, pine nuts, lettuce… so fresh, exactly what I wanted!
  • Spinach soufflé crêpe with gruyère – “this is f…. amazing!” said mi amor after the first bite… It was very tasty and I like it too.
  • Goat cheese tart – bacon, goat cheese and fig  – “fantastic”
  • Amaretto/almond crêpe : dessert with crêpe can’t go wrong!
  • Coco rhum / coconut crêpe – was good but I preferred the amaretto/almond one

Everything was very good! Of course mi amor loved it because of the crêpes.  I know what to do to make him happy : make crêpes everyday – he will be the happier man in the entire world!

I would recommend this place, particularly on a nice day : seat outside! The patio is very nice. They have table that you find in Parisian café. The food is simple and delicious. You won’t be disappointed. Our waiter was great, he spoke French which I loved.

Why :

I wanted a nice place recommended and we went there for their happy hour!

Dinner at the Conrad with Timmy

When : March 2, 2012

Where : Conrad hotel (check their website here)

What :

  • Salad : Boston Bibb Lettuce, Mandarin Oranges and Dried Canberries, Goat cheese crostinni, White Balsamic Vinaigrette (sorry for the quality of the picture – it was dark and someone was speaking I didn’t want to disturb his speech)
  • Entrée : Herb Crusted Breast of Chicken, Tomato Basil Bushetta, Parmesan Polenta, Green and White Asparagus, Pesto Cream
  • Dessert : Carmel White chocolate Cheesecake Almond Brittle

Why :

The Annual Event of Timmy Global Health was at the Conrad. I was invited 😉

My favorite was the salad with the White Balsamic vinaigrette. It was not my first time there and I love the food and the service of the Conrad. It’s like watching a dance! They are very professional and I have never been disappointed. Each event I went to there always had great food. Even though I have to admit that their dessert are to rich for me and I am not always a fan. Look forward to being at the next event!
