Last night I went to dinner at St. Anselm's DC, the newest Stephen Starr/Joe Carroll venture, in the CRAZY hot Union Market neighborhood. I managed to get myself lost coming out of the metro -- do not do that if you get scared easily -- but when I eventually found myself where I was actually supposed to be the most magical, special night commenced.

I am working on the full review now, but I wanted to thank Joe Carroll (and friends) for joining me at dinner. The hysterical, and clearly staged photo above, is me with all four of the desserts at St. Anselm's, including the delicious Rob Roy cocktail in my right hand and a leg off of the Crispy Fried Bo-Bo Chicken in the other. "I am Henry the 8th!!" I proudly proclaimed to roars of appreciative laughter.
Definitely one of the best meals I've had in D.C. -- and certainly, without question, the best new restaurant in town!

Be sure to tune into the blog next week for my thoughts, as well the picking up a print edition of the November DC Modern Luxury! Until then, happy eating!
