Purple sweet potato brioche. Bar seating $180
Pineapple & Pearls, Washington DC

This was a fun and tasty intermezzo. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet and the presentation was cute. The fizz from the soda was also nice to help cleanse the palate.

Extra bite - Pineapple & Pearls
I forget what was in this tiny bite that was present after the lamb course. I remember that I didn’t much care for the brown stuff though, lol!

I love roasted beets and this salad had a awesome combination of flavors and textures. It was super refreshing and delicious. I’ve never had Ethiopian wot before, but this mushroom wot reminded me of an Italian crostini. It tasted great!
