On a menu full of nostalgic finger foods, many under $10, it’s tempting to sample one of everything at Arlington’s EatBar. And nearly everything is worth a try.

But it’s a plate of hush puppies, six to an order, that triumphs as the ultimate comfort food: With a dab of the accompanying maple butter, the warm, Ping-Pong-ball-size treats recall a plateful of fluffy, syrupy pancakes.

Chef Andrew Markert’s secret ingredient? He adds a touch of crème fraîche to the buttermilk batter, lightening what is often a heavy, filling treat.

This appeared in the March, 2009 issue of the Washingtonian.
