2941 Restaurant is one of those places I visit when I need an escape. An escape it is with scenic views highlighting the things we love about every season i.e. bright sunlight from the spring sun, snow blankets on the grass surrounding the lake. Besides allowing me to take a deep breath away from the hustle and bustle of DC, the food has stayed consistent through the years. On my recent visit, I noted a few things to try should you venture out to these parts:
- The tuna tartare: 2941 prides themselves on fresh ingredients and this dish is evidence that they mean what they say. Fresh and light, the tartare is a good way to start.
- The Spaghetti: Not your average spaghetti and meatballs hot plate special, 2941 combines Carolina shrimp, morels and basil on a plate to trump your preconceived notions of what typical spaghetti should entail.
- Pan seared scallops: Appealing to the eye with colors of the rainbow decorating the plate, the scallops’ return to 2941’s ultimate goal…fresh, fresh and fresher.
When one is at 2941, one must also taste test the wine selection. 2941 wine director, Jonathan Schuyler, has his hand on the pulse of the dishes created by Executive Chef Bertrand Chemel. A tag team of good wine and food?? I’m in.
