I really wanted to write a review of Hook, the new(ish) seafood restaurant in Georgetown.
Unfortunately, we (and most of M street) were evacuated last night, just after being served delicate and delicious crudo, right as the bread basket arrived, moments after our bottle of wine was opened, and long before any actual food of substance was in sight.
This was especially disappointing because chefs Barton Seaver and Joshua Whigham were both in the kitchen, cooking. I was very excited for my Tobago Snapper, and the entire (sustainable!) menu looked delicious. Boo to evacuations mid-meal.
I can report, however, that the decor is elegant and comfortable at the same time, the servers are passionate about food, the stemware was lovely and the Cava was tasty. I look forward to returning, the next time I'm in D.C., and hopefully no one will leave any suspicious packages in H&M to thwart my plans.
Hook is located on M Street at 32nd, accepts all major credit cards, and handles police evacuations with grace and aplomb.
