City Zen information
James Beard–award-winning chef Eric Zeibold heads the kitchen at one of DC’s most acclaimed restaurants. Zeibold is something of a legend in US culinary circles; he came up in California’s French Laundry (arguably the best restaurant in America, some say the world) and approaches food with what we’d call fierce innovation. This is the kind of guy who mixes red snapper skin with lentils and can make you think a monkfish liver was a slice of perfect foie gras. The tasting menu of most foodies’ fantasies is served in a dining room that’s almost blinding in its ritzy opulence. To cut a very fine deal, treat yourself to the $50 bar tasting menu.
