Question of the Day
Deep Creek Restaurant, which sits along Deep Creek and has views of the Magothy River, is a rare pearl in the crowded field of the region’s steak and seafood houses.
The lunch menu features 10 sandwiches — among them crab cake, grilled tuna, cheesesteak and shrimp salad. The sandwiches are of good size and come with your choice of french fries or onion rings.
Appetizers are fairly standard, but one that is truly unique is the crab pizza. Because the menu called the sauce Alfredo, we were pleasantly surprised at the lightness of the dish. The sauce provided the perfect backdrop for the sweet crab meat, paired with equally sweet diced tomatoes. A touch of cheese and just the perfect sprinkling of seafood seasoning completed the dish. A better crust would make this truly exceptional.
Deep Creek’s signature dinner entrees rely heavily on seafood, steak and pasta plates.
The flounder Veracruz was pan-fried fillets over baby field greens, drizzled with cilantro oil and a jalapeno cream, then topped with homemade salsa.
Steak and cake is a combination of land and sea. Filet mignon is paired with a jumbo lump crab cake finished with a chipotle aioli sauce.
Three of the dessert offerings are home made: key lime pie, apple pie and creme brulee — this last a very satisfying choice.
Cafe du Parc
1401 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Cafe du Parc is the new informal restaurant in the Willard Intercontinental Hotel. The food is neither haute cuisine nor experimental cuisine nouvelle, but excellent bourgeois dishes typical of brasserie fare, some with a contemporary accent.
