Newton's Table (or Dennis' Dream)

Meet Dennis Friedman. He's a Potomac hometown-boy. He spent a few years at Bezu at the corner of River and Falls Rds., at the spot formerly held by Fritz Sigfried at Cafe Mozart.
After several years of working at Bezu he decided to try his own thing. Welcome to his restaurant. Newton's Table.

The first thing you'll notice, after the friendly, knowledgeable servers, is that Dennis is an artist.Not only does the food look good, it actually tastes good too! This is seared tuna appetizer. The sauce was almost buttery.A little amuse bouche from Dennis. Nice Gougeres. This is the tuna wrap. Nicely seasoned with some good texture from the lettuce and cabbage inside. The tuna was warm, but not hot enough to wilt everything.

The bleu cheese was chunky and the burger was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. Presentation is obviously important to Dennis.

I'm looking forward to having dinner there with some of my partners-in-crime in July. I'm sure they'll all enjoy it.

If you stop in, tell Dennis that I said hello.
