DC Dining: Unum

My girlfriends and I recently made a pact to try a new restaurant/have a girl’s night out twice a month. First on our list – Unum – a “neighborhood restaurant with American contemporary cuisine” in the heart of Georgetown.  Conclusion: It’s 12 hours later and I’m still drooling/thinking about all of that deliciousness.

My personal favorite: Sesame crusted scallops with wasabi risotto with edamame, shiitake & tobiko, spiced shishito peppers, pickled vegetables & nori beurre blanc.

Other top rates: 

Grilled quail with sauteed spinach with dates, pistachios & date demi-glace

Boneless shortrib pasta with tagliatelle, baby root vegetables & red-wine braising jus

Grilled hanger steak with roasted sunchokes, white & green asparagus, horseraddish & port sauces

Looks as if our dining pact is off to a scrumptious start!
