On Friday night, we went out to dinner with some friends to a new upscale pub downtown called Againn. Being the old foggy that I clearly seemed to have turned into, I didn't know anything about it. Thank goodness our dinner-mates are foodies. They'd been before, they loved it and they were right -- it was really, really good.
I walked in and immediately felt like it was the sister restaurant of Brasserie Beck and there's a reason for it -- the firm that designed Beck also took the plunge with Againn.
So as you can imagine, there's this back-to-basics-with-a-little-flash, sort-of feeling to the place. The space felt expansive, but warm. (Can you tell I liked it?)
Now, the food....
The oysters were divine. The salmon was the best I've had out in my five years in D.C. and the glass of red I had from the Rhone Valley was, well, dangerously delicious!
Grab your girlfriends or your significant other and go. You'll love it.
