The other night, we got a text message inviting us to a new Columbia Pike bistro, Chez Holly and Jonny “serving up eclectic fare”. The restaurant week special included panang veggie curry and basil egg plant drunken noodle.
The food was extremely tasty, the presentation flawless, and the ambiance and company, perfect. The noodles were perfectly flavored (sesame oil and fresh peppercorns were key contributors) as was the crispy eggplant. And the curry…mmm…This one we will be trying to replicate. And we came home armed with some Kefir Lime leaves…so we will be able to!
So this really was our friend’s house (as you could have guessed by the name)…but it really was as good as a restaurant..maybe a competitor to that house restaurant on U street. And…it was truly veggie friendly. No fish sauce, no anchovy paste. You rock. Thanks Jonny and Holly!
