This year we celebrated my friend's January birthday with a lunch at the Oval Room. The DC restaurant critics really like the chef and the restaurant, and we had never tired it before. While I question the motives of many Yelp reviewers, they were right that the portion size is ridiculously small.
Crab Spring Roll appetizer
Just one spring roll with some lettuce garnish. We split it, which is great if you're watching portion size.
Spaghetti with uni carbonara
Truly magnificent flavor, but the portion size was laughable.This has to be smaller than dietican-recommended 1/2 cup of pasta portion size.
Bolognese ragu with pasta.
Given the location, we should have gone next door to Equinox.
