The Restaurant at the Tabard Inn, DC

The Restaurant at the Tabard Inn is as beautiful as the food is delicious.  A bright, sunny room with black and white floors, large windows and a gorgeous patio.  The Inn itself is a stunning historical structure, and the restaurant carries on the original design.  I went for lunch on a warm day in June.  Although the patio is first-com, first-served, I was offered a seat outside but opted for the intimate dining room.  The menu seems to lean toward seafood but has an excellent variety of meat and pasta as well.  Prices are very reasonable as is the wine.  I started with Glidden Point oysters from Maine, nice an briny, followed by a pork terrine and duck prosciutto.  Then on to a grilled sardine salade Nicoise with fried lemon and the scallops with squid ink noodles (I had some help with all this, by the way!)  All were outstanding.  The neighborhood is a nice stroll to boot.
