Georgetown welcomes Unum restaurant into the fold.
By Nevin Martell
Fine food brings together Washingtonians of all political stripes. In that spirit of unity, Unum restaurant in Georgetown will start welcoming Democrats, Republicans and independents this Tuesday, January 31st.
The 50-seat restaurant offers new American cuisine that’s sure to please both sides of the aisle. Equinox alum chef-owner Phillip Blane presides over the kitchen, which will turn out such dishes as pomegranate-sauced smoked duck breast on a bed of rainbow Swiss chard, and grilled quail with date sauce and sautéed greens. For dessert, there’s ricotta beignets with cardamom blueberry sauce – the perfect pick-me-up after discussing the State of the Union or the umpteenth primary debate.
The egalitarian eatery also offers an extensive bar-bites menu that twists up comforting classics. We’re talking truffled mac ‘n’ cheese and cod ‘n’ chorizo tater tots, which everyone should agree is a great way to unwind after going head-to-head on the issues.
