It is a golden maxim to cultivate the garden for the nose, and the eyes will take care of themselves. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
Another great experience at Graffiato, made better by the fact that not only was everything pleasing to the eye, but the fresh ingredients were tempting to the nose.
And the desserts are much better than they were when the place first opened. MUCH.
[This was lunch in the middle of a great day in DC, the day before the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Yes, I’m aware it’s going on today, but not all of us are lucky enough to get downtown to partake in the festivities. So I’m watching and thinking good thoughts. And remembering a good meal that fostered good, thoughtful discussion in the run-up to an important day.]
