As the recent recipient of one star from the prestigious Michelin Guide and the only Forbes five star rated restaurant in DC, Plume at The Jefferson hotel serves as an elegant backdrop to the artistry of the award-winning culinary team. We sat at a cozy nook as we savored classic dishes using traditional techniques and seasonal ingredients that are inspired by the harvest from Thomas Jefferson's kitchen gardens at Monticello. Closest Metro is Farragut North.

I chose this fine restaurant to celebrate our 7-year wedding anniversary, and ordered a half bottle of Adami, "Bosco di Gica," Prosecco from Veneto, Italy to start off the celebratory occasion.  It paired nicely with the generous bread course of pretzel baguette, sour dough, and gougères served with a trio of butter: onion, seaweed, and salted.

Amuse bouche of salmon tartar with grapefruit foam; truffle panna cotta; and smoked octopus with hummus.

Diver Scallops with saffron and citrus fruit salad and Pernod and Sauce Maltaise.

Hudson Valley Foie Terrine with coffee marbling, blackberry, and brioche.

To continue with our anniversary theme, I chose an elegant bottle of 2011 Shane Wine Cellars, "Valenti Ranch," Syrah from Anderson Valley, Mendocino.

King Salmon Yew Wood “Bento” cooked in Amish Bees Wax and served with brown butter emulsion.

Pennsylvania Marcho Farm Veal Chop served with white asparagus, sage butter, and veal jus.

Strawberry Ice Cream with Rice Pudding as a palate cleanser.

Sicilian Pistachio and Chocolate Chaud-Froid - a pistachio soufflé with cherry marmalade.

Sea Salt Caramel Coffee Tart with blood orange, pomegranate, and bourbon ice cream.

After the two-hour experience, we were treated to petit fours with the bill, and sent home with a small box of chocolates.
