nopa kitchen + bar


Last weekend, my husband and I went to Nopa Kitchen + Bar in Penn Quarter. Nopa is the latest restaurant in Ashok Bajaj's restaurant empire.  Since Rasika and Bibiana (also part of his group) are two of my favorite DC restaurants, I was eager to give Nopa whirl.

Nopa2Nopa did not disappoint.  Advertised as an "American brassiere", the menu focuses on classics like steaks and burgers. However, it takes the approach a little further and also offers a number of seafood dishes, raw bar items, charcuterie, savory snacks and heirloom vegetable sides. Everything we ate was delicous.  The twice fried chicken is a stand out and so was the rockfish entree.  It's definitely a place we'll add to our regular rotation.
