The complex menu is divided among raw selections, small plates, appetizers and main courses. Two appetizers not to be missed are Icelandic Arctic char, a delicate cousin of salmon served with honey mushrooms, garden peas and the springtime delicacy, fiddlehead ferns and Atlantic blue-fin toro, bathed in truffle balsamic vinegar and accompanied by arugula and strawberry sorbet. The sorbet terminally trendy, but it works.
The low-ceilinged Restaurant tends to be a bit noisy when full, but the decibel level is manageable, while the lighting from the bar and retail section does little to conceal signs of the ravages of age. But the service, from a warm greeting and prompt seating by the maitre d' to careful attention by the personable waiter, Moses, whose lilting accent comes from Barbados and Jamaica, is flawless, with used silverware and soiled napkins promptly replaced and water glasses frequently refilled.
For the truly hungry and adventurous, the BlackSalt Restaurant in Washington D.C., United States has a 12 - course, tasting menu.
