I was recently in Washington, DC with Shot@Life, speaking to members of Congress about the importance of global vaccines. You can read about it here. They kept us pretty busy from sunrise to sunset, but we did get to go out to a really nice restaurant after our visit to Capitol Hill. The Hamilton welcomed us with open arms, and trust me, there were a lot of us! First thing we were treated to was cheese & wine. The cheese was fabulous! I fell in love with the goat cheese, it was delicious and I went back for 2nds… but it was all gone. Guess I wasn’t the only one feeling it! The Hamilton is a pretty big place, we had one whole side of the establishment all to ourselves. They also have live music, but we did not get to experience that, since we weren’t in that part of the restaurant… next time! Here’s our menu for the night:
First up, Beet Salad, with Mixed Greens, Beets & a Sherry Vinaigrette… here’s a pic. I was not sure if I’d like this or not, I’m not a beet person, but it was surprisingly good. I ate most of it. After we were done with our salad, there was plenty of time to mingle, before the main dish came out. We were all really famished, so when the waiters started coming out with the entrees, we were a bunch of happy campers! Next up, Grilled Swordfish with Black Beluga Lentils, Balsamic Cipollini Onion, and Baby Carrots. The fish was cooked to perfection! The lentils and baby carrots were tasty and left me wanting more. The only thing missing was a piece of bread, I would have liked a roll or croissant… maybe The Hamilton can add that to the meal! Last, but not least, Dessert!!! You know how I love my sweets! Apple Tart was on the menu for us, complete with caramel sauce & whipped cream! My, my, my … I could have eaten 2 of ’em! I thoroughly enjoyed The Hamilton, and hope to go back next time I am in DC.
