minibarDC 2nd Visit — Washington DC (12/2014)

minibarDC-91 About a week before a trip to Washington DC, I decided to check and see if there was a mid-week slot open for dinner at minibar.  I thought it was time to try it again after a couple of years.  It turned out they had a slot open on a Tuesday night at 8:30.  Even then, the counters were not fully occupied for the late seating. One change to the setup was that they had turned the front part into a bar/food area called barmini.  So, unlike last time, where we had pre-dinner drinks and the first snack in the “living room” area, we were offered drinks and a snack in a small anteroom.  The bar area was filled with drinkers/diners. The first snack, offered while waiting to be seated, was a set of several edible flower petals pressed into a clear edible sheet (starch paper).  These included rose, elderflower and fennel flower. These were delicate and slightly sweet. For the full write-up, click here.
