Fisher Food Finds


From the folks who brought you the Bombay Club, 701, and the Oval Room, Rasika, which opened in mid-December, is another of downtown Washington's new showcases of design and innovative cooking. The food is more trendy and inventive than at Bombay Club, more like a hipper version of Cleveland Park's Indique, but with a fascinatingly diverse ethnic mix of servers. We had a great evening with Ann, a pixie from Thailand, and with food that matched the design, which is a riff on early 60s kitsch.

Fish,
I'm a little confused. What do you mean by "fascinatingly diverse ethnic mix of servers." This is DC, after all. Isn't it pretty common around here to have a diverse mix of servers?

Are you fascinated at the diversity, or are were you just fascinated by the servers? Such as the "pixie" Ann? Did she take pleasure in deliberately misleading you around the menu, or was she simply petite and chipper - as in Peter Pan-esque fairy?
