lunch at range

Last Friday, my husband and I journeyed to Friendship Heights to have lunch at Range, Bryan Voltaggio’s DC restaurant.  We ate at Volt’s Table 21 in 2010 and in many ways, I knew what to expect from the cuisine at Range. It did not disappoint.

It was restaurant week and we decided to give the menu a whirl.  Range offered a number of great options and this girl can’t resist a deal.  We started with a kale caesar and a beet salad.  My husband had the pizza and I had a blackened hake sandwich with no bread (gluten free these days.  it sucks).  We finished with a chocolate custard with bacon fiddle faddle and lemon pound cake.  All of the food was excellent.  My husband, the (wannabe) restaurant critic, had a few complaints about his pizza.  It wasn’t clear from the menu description that it didn’t have sauce.  He also felt it needed salt.  All of the complaints were remedied once the waiter came back with the requested sauce and salt. Let’s also note that he said the crust was amazing.  My hake was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. My homemade potato chips were delicious.  The star of the show was definitely the desserts.  BACON FIDDLE FADDLE people.  I wanted a plate of it.

Would we go again?  Probably not.  The food and atmosphere were great but we are lazy, lazy people and like to stay in our ‘hood.  It’s sad but true.  However, it was a fun experience and I’d recommend it to anyone living/visiting Friendship Heights.
