Our catering kitchen is based in our restaurant - a block from the White House, which serves innovative, contemporary American food based on seasonal ingredients. Our menus are prepared by our restaurant staff and under the constant supervision of Chef Gray and his talented team. Few chefs are as conscientious in searching out the local best as Todd Gray. Gray's menus read like a directory of the finest the area has to offer.
Recent triumphs include: a Piedmontese-style ravioli of local pumpkin with brown butter, fresh sage, and amaretti; a crisp-skinned cod filet with potatoes, mushrooms, and minced truffle; House-made spaghetti with Riesling butter broccoli rabe & Chincoteague clams.
Our food reflects an imagination grounded in classical training along with local ingredients and stylish arrangements. Our catering is distinctive, elegant and wholesome.
Gray states his philosophy this way: “Show people your passion, and they understand you’re serious about your work.”
