DC restaurants know you're coming when the blossoms are out. They offer this special to keep people coming in the offseason; and man, is it ugly out today. I went to Poste Moderne Brasserie (too manye e's?) last night for Restaurant Week, and it was pretty great. I'm a novice foodie, so I'm somewhat easliy impressed, but the food was great and the service snappy, if a little sterile - we never exchanged more than a few words with our server. Ordered the rockfish over potatoes, topped with a red wine-poached egg. Excellent. Also the dessert of doughnuts (fluffy but substantial donut holes), served with a shot glass of hot cider and a dish of apple butter. GF went veggie, got winter vegetables and a cheese platter that were at least par. Apps of a nutty celery-root soup and a pretty standard bruschetta trio were tasty. With wine/water/coffee/tea/tip, $130. I could've gotten some new Grensons for that... Worth it just to walk through the Hotel Monaco to get to the restroom, fantastic looking hotel.
