Mintwood Place

American in Adams Morgan

In a neighborhood known for jumbo pizza slices and Jell-O shots, Mintwood Place is a romantic anomaly. Take a seat in a brown-leather booth or at a reclaimed-wood table under twinkling lights. Then sniff the French-American fusion dishes that emerge from the wood-burning oven. The flammekueche (onion and bacon tart), chicken-liver mousse and escargot hush puppies show how it's done.
