100 Very Best Restaurants: #64 – Reverie

Scallop Crudo

About Reverie

3201 Cherry Hill Ln NW
Washington, DC 20007

The highs are high at former Minibar chef Johnny Spero’s modernist restaurant in Georgetown. Take the whole duck—among the best of the trendy flock, with fennel-pollen-dusted meat, crunchy skin, and ac-companying duck katsu sandos. For a week­night indulgence, try scallops swimming in dill buttermilk or a Baltimore gose with a burger (way more delicious and complex than it sounds). Also cool: Spero’s collaboration dinners with a host of national chefs, announced on the chef’s Instagram. Expensive.
