Consistently good

I'm not sure why this place doesn't get any love...I've had several excellent meals here, it's in a nice spot in Georgetown and it has a cute balcony with tables. I've enjoyed seafood thermidor and veal parm. Wife typically gets white clam pasta, which is well-executed. Don't let the lack of buzz or a big name chef turn you off...this place is a gem.
