One of the neighborhood’s best restaurants has been recognized for its exceptional service by Zagat. Komi, atÂ 1509 17th Street NW, is ranked as one of the 10 best restaurants for service in the DC metro area.
Already known for its exceptional food (as Borderstan’s Kim Vu reports), this honor places the modern MediterraneanÂ establishment among the District’s best dining spots.
Johnny Monis leads diners on a â€śgastro-adventureâ€ť at his Dupont Circle American-Med â€śtempleâ€ť offering a â€śdazzling variety of dishes beautifully prepared and executedâ€ť in a â€śsubduedâ€ť, â€śunderstatedâ€ť setting, made more â€śrelaxingâ€ť by a staff thatâ€™s â€śdetail-oriented without being uptight;â€ť â€śexpect to spend the eveningâ€ť as they â€śserve and serve and serveâ€ť a fixed-price â€śparadeâ€ť of plates along with â€świtty wine pairingsâ€ťÂ â€” and while the â€śhigh priceâ€ť and â€śhard-to-get reservationsâ€ť give â€śmere eatersâ€ť pause, food fanatics chant â€śjust go.â€ť
