Just in case you haven't heard, there is a potentially fabulous new restaurant opening in town this summer: Volt. And, I have bought into all of the buzz hook, line, and sinker. Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out their blog (much, much more info than their web site):
The head chef, Bryan Voltaggio, seems like the real deal in food. He's a CIA grad and a veteran of Charlie Palmer Steak in DC. Here's a quote I picked up off of his blog: “Developing the menu will be driven by the changing seasons,” said Voltaggio. “Produce will be featured at the peak of its harvest. Fish, game, and aged cuts of beef and lamb will be procured from only top-notch purveyors. Wine selections will highlight both pedigreed and emerging wine makers from both old and new world vineyards.” Voltaggio says the restaurant’s wine program will be supported by a highly experienced sommelier who is dedicated “to creating a memorable dining experience.”
With so many fabulous ingredients available locally, the menu is sure to be fantastic and work for all of the locavores out there too.
Volt will be located on N. Market St between 2nd & 3rd Sts. (across from Wheel Base). He and his partnew, Hilda Staples, have hired a DC architect focused on restaurants. I'm sure they'll do the building across from justice, plus, it's right around the corner from my house. As I get more info, I'll post it here.
Hmmm, sounds like more good eating is coming to town. Woo-freakin'-hoo!!!
