Sunday night I was invited to an event at the Kennedy Center with friends. Prior to the show, we decided on a little “pre-party” at Four Seasons restaurant Bourbon Steak. The name of the restaurant intimidated my veggie palate. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to eat anything on the menu and as a result, my tummy would be growling all night througout the program. Luckily that didn’t happen. To my delight, the menu offered numerous seafood and vegetarian options I could enjoy. Some of my favorites included the lobster corn dogs (like a little bite of heaven) with whole grain mustard and creme fraiche dipping sauce, fried pickles with mayo, oysters on the half shell, shrimp crisps and duck fat fries (admittedly I sampled one out of curiousity-very crispy!). The menu was delicious, but pricey. Cocktails were around $14 each and the “snacks” started around $15 and up. However, for a special occasion I found the Four Seasons worth the expense. The inside dining room is gorgeous and the oustide patio (where we sat) is absolutely ideal on a sunny day. The service was impeccable. This place is no joke.
