The Faulkner Team took the corner table at Estadio in Logan Circle. This is a great restaurant in a fabulous neghborhood!! Estadio is a high-end tapas restaurant and bar on 14th Street just north of Logan Circle. It has earned its established reputation as one of the best restaurants in the City, and I can attest that it continues to excel and to add great value to the Logan Circle community.
Here’s a quick peek at a few of the superb plates —-
We tend toward the Pescados and Mariscos at Estadio, absolutely terrific fish and shellfish. Among the many items we tried, we loved the Soft Shell Crab, and the Bacalao (a raw cod soaked in olive oil, avocado, oranges and jalapeno).
We love creative cooking, so in addition to the fish tapas, we also tried Spice Grilled Chicken with Cabbage Slaw and Salsa Loca; Roasted Sweet Corn Alioli; and then back to seafood with Seared Scallops with Cauliflower, Steamed Mussels, and Seared Alaskan Halibut with Fideo (a short noodle), Cherry Tomatoes and Marcona Pesto. Awesome!
Everything tastes better with these inventive drinks, and since I was driving, I could only sip on half of one of these.
The celebration was my wife’s birthday, hosted by our good friend and team leader, Diane Faulkner. Diane leads our real estate work (www.faulknerteam.com), and Lynn and I spend a LOT of time in DC neighborhoods such as Logan Circle. We agreed next time we end up at Estadio, we are going to sit at the chef’s bar and watch the cooking!
